He left the room about an hour ago. Luckily, he untied me before leaving. He only fed me once and it was just a stale piece of bread. I am really sore. I got off the bed and walked over to a bookshelf that was in the room. I really miss the other boys. I was snapped out of my thoughts by the door to my prison room opening. I looked toward the door and saw J.L walking in. He told me to call him that. He walked over to me and roughly grabbed me by the arm. He seems to be in a hurry and that confuses me. When I wouldn't move, he slapped me across the face.
"Look, I don't have time for your bullshit. Now, behave and come along peacefully" He said, dragging me out of the room and down the stairs. When we got down stairs, I saw two men standing in the living room. They both looked at me and smirked.
"Hello. You must be the new member of the game" A man with black hair said, looking me up and down. He has a tattoo on his wrist that said C.J. What is with people getting tattoos of their initials?
"So, where are we going to hide with him?" The other man asked. He had a tattoo that said A.J.
"We are going to the warehouse on Maplethorn Road. We can do anything we want to him there" J.L. said, sliding his hand down my back. I shivered as his hand went under my shirt. I grabbed his arm and pulled his hand out of my shirt. He looked at me angrily but didn't say or do anything.
"We better get going before his friends show up. They are probably following your footprints" C.J said. J.L took me to a different room and locked me in there. He must have locked me up so they all could go and get ready. I looked all around the room until my eyes landed on a picture of a family standing under a maple tree. That gave me an idea. I reached into the hidden pocket of my jacket and pulled out my special pocket knife. It has my name engraved in the handle. I quickly stabbed the knife into the maple tree and ran to the other side of the room. Just as I made it to the other side of the room, the door opened.
"Come on. We have to get you to the warehouse before your friends show up" J.L. said, pulling me out of the room and down the stairs. He roughly pulled me to the car and pushed me in the back with C.J. As they drove off, I looked out the back window. The last thing I saw before trees blocked my vision was a head of blue hair. They were a little too late.
When we left the house, we all noticed footprints in the snow. We saw small blood drops in the snow by one of the prints. We followed the footprints and ended up appearing in front of an orange house.
"Lets go inside" Ashton said, walking toward the house. Michael quickly grabbed his arm and pulled him back.
"Are you insane? If they are still in there, they will kill you" Michael whispered. I looked around and saw a huge stick laying on the ground. I walked over and picked it up.
"Hey guys, lets go. We have to save Luke as soon as possible" I said, getting everyone's attention. They all turned to me and saw the stick that was in my hands. Their eyes widened at the sight of it.
"Where the hell did you get a stick that big" Ashton asked. I face-palmed and shook my head.
"Never mind the stick. Let's just go and save Luke" I said, running towards the house. The others followed closely behind me. We walked inside and realized the place was empty.
"Let's split up and look around. Maybe we'll find something that will tell us where Luke is" Michael ordered. We all nodded and walked in different directions. I walked down the hall and to a door. I opened it and saw stairs that led down to what I think is the basement. As I was about to walk down the stairs, I heard Ashton call for us to come upstairs. I ran up the stairs and saw Ashton standing in the doorway of one of the rooms.
"Is there a problem Ash?" Michael asked as we ran up to him.
"I found something in here" Ashton said, pulling me and Mikey into the room. When we got into the room, I saw what Ashton was talking about. On the other side of the room was a picture of a family standing in front of a tree. Stabbed in the center of the tree was a familiar looking knife. We all walked over to the picture and looked at the handle of the knife.
"This is definitely Luke's knife. It has his name engraved in the handle" Michael said. I grabbed the knife and pulled it out of the picture.
"Luke must have stuck the knife here to give us a clue as to where he is being taken" I said, closing the pocket knife.
"Let's see. The knife was stabbed in the middle of the tree, and that is a maple tree. Maybe the place they took Luke has the word maple in it" Michael said. Ashton and I stared at him in shock and confusion.
"How did you get all of that from one clue?" Ashton asked.
"This room is filled with pictures of different trees. Why else would he choose this one out of all the pictures in this room?" Michael asked as if it was the most obvious thing in the world.
"Well, the only place that has the word Maple in it and that's Maplethorn Road. They must be keeping Luke there somewhere" I said.
"Well, what are we waiting for. Let's go to Maplethorn and save Luke from being killed" Michael shouted, running out the door. Me and Ashton ran out of the house and after Michael. Don't worry Luke, we will find and save you before it is too late.
