- Autumn's POV -
I asked Lauren to take me back to the hotel after, because I had to think about what had happened. Why would Dean just run? Does he still love her? Does he still want her? Am I just a rebound? Or am I even worse, a mistake? But we fitted so well together and our love making was magical. Why would it all go this way?
I arrived back to the room with help from Lauren and saw Dean sitting on the bed. His head in his hands. He looked to be crying. I sat next to him and put my arms around him. He buried his head in my shoulder and soaked my shirt. I didn't have a care for that; I could easily just put on another shirt. His deep sobs turned into just some irregular breaths with him in my arms.
He unwound my arms and pulled back.
"You didn't see me cry okay!" He said being back to his cranky self. He left shortly after his outburst. I laid down on our bed and thought. He clearly must care for her if he cries for her. I guess I'm alone after all. Without Demi and Dean my life would be meaningless. Without them I would have nothing to live for. I decided to take a break from thinking and I would just take a shower. I got to the bathroom and grabbed a towel. I got undressed and into the shower and sat there on the seat. I waited and listened to the water falling down on me and the floor. The slow drip drop and the wet feeling against my head when the water soaked my hair. Sitting there I realized my thoughts were right and I had nothing left to live for. James had won. He had broken me. He finally did what he wanted to do.
I got out of the shower and laid back down on the bed. The phone went off and I grabbed the horn.
"Hello?" I said.
"Only you can stop the killing April, or should I call you Autumn now?" Said the person on the other end. It sounded so much like James. I began to shake.
"What do you mean? Why are you calling?" I asked him in a slight panic.
"You are the one that got away Autumn. You are the one I want. You are the one I need."
"Because I love you. I need you. I have to have you."
"What if I don't want that?"
"Then the killing won't stop. You'll see one of your friends' heads tomorrow morning if you won't come to me."
"Where would I have to go?"
"Come to our first meeting place. I will find you."
"Okay. Please don't kill anymore. I will come to you."
"Meet me in 3 hours. If you aren't there by then I will grab someone." The phone got cut off. I guess I am going to go to him.
I started to pack a bag with things I wanted to bring with me. I couldn't grab everything because that would be suspicious and they still had to protect me. I was done with this world. With the fighting against him. I couldn't let anyone else die because of me. I couldn't lose another friend. I grabbed some clothes, because who knows he might keep me alive for a while. I also grabbed my toiletries and some books. I wanted to bring whatever I use. In case I would need it I also brought a taser I stole of Dean. You can never have too many things with you as long as it fits into my bag. I looked around to see if I had everything and grabbed my phone and charger. I had everything so I looked at the clock. One hour to get to the meeting place. I walked out of the room.
"Where are you going?" Asked the agent that stood outside my door.
"I'm meeting Lacey downstairs. I was going to go shopping with her." I answered as I got to the elevator.
I rode it down and grabbed the bus towards the park. I felt strangely at peace with everything happening. No fears about what was to happen to me. No strange thoughts in my heads. Just a quiet peace, waiting for the inevitable. I was going to put a stop to all the killing. Everybody was going to keep their heads from now on. I got out at my bus stop and shook the feeling of being scared off of me. I walked through the park. I hadn't been here since the incident. I was too afraid, but I had to walk through it now. I had to save everyone else. So I could live through the fear. I slowly went further till I saw the alley where he first grabbed me. I let out a sigh and went towards it. I stood at the entrance. I could see the building where he came from. I saw every sign in the windows. Nothing had changed at all. I heard a thunder in the sky. I saw dark clouds above my head. The signs of a great thunderstorm were all there. I felt a drop on my head. Soon another followed. And another, and another. Within five minutes I was soaked to the bone. Behind me everyone ran for the safety of a dry store. Some people grabbed umbrellas and ran to the cab stand with them. I turned around and around. Twirling to the rain. I walked further into the alley. I was going through with it. I stood in front of the building for about 5 minutes. Then I felt a presence behind me.
"Hello Autumn, I missed you." He said to me.
"Come we have to go, Love." He said as he grabbed my arm and pulled me with. He had a cap on his head to avoid recognition. He pulled me through the alley till we reached a car. He opened the back and placed my bag in it. Then he helped me on the passenger seat and went to the driver's seat. He got in and we drove off. We drove for miles and miles, him talking to me about everything he missed about me.
"Okay love, this is where you can't see where we're going anymore. Please breathe in this cloth." He said to me as he gave me a cloth drenched in chloroform. I did as he told me and soon I saw the familiar black spots in my view. Then it all became black.
