2. Chapter 1

Unknown

I couldn't take anymore of this life. I had thought it was the best; he was the definition of perfection. If only I knew how foolish I was when I was first with him.

My parents were thrilled when I had first brought him home, gushing over how he would be able to provide for me. His reputation with the other businesses was well known and he made a great profit through deals. They only wanted me to stay with him for his reputation. I was so blinded by my apparent feelings, that I never realized what a true monster he was. It only hit me, when I was left for dead on the side of the road, as he drove off with the only part of me I had left.

At this point I had just realized we were going to have our second child. I was going to tell him today, however by the agonizing pains in my stomach, I knew I had lost him. Another part of me had died too with this. I could feel tears brimming my eyes as I looked in the direction I had last seen him take off.

The pain was starting to catch up to me, until it was suffocating me. As the dots clouded my vision, I hoped I would be found soon. Everything went black.

Waking up in the same position made me start to lose even more hope of the chance to see civilization. However, looking closely, I recognized the road. Turning my head slowly, to stop myself from pain, I saw the distant lights of the quiet cafe that was close to my brother's home.

These past few weeks, I had started to notice that he was becoming distant. Staying out late, coming home drunk and never talking to me. One day when he was out I had looked at local police to track down the one person I knew who wouldn't give up on me. I found him not too far away and as an active Sergeant. Finding his address was harder as I had to lie and say I was doing background checks for his case, I didn't think it would work. I had asked them not to say I had called as he already knew this, and they believed the whole thing. This was just making me doubt myself, would he actually want to see me? Would he even want to know me after I had left the family?

Trying to muffle my screams as I got up, I stood and shakily started to try and walk in the right direction. As moss grows towards the north here, I knew I was going the right way. I was thanking my mother on sending me camping with my dad and brother so often; it was very useful now.

As the time passed, my feet began to numb and tingle with the amount of scratches on the soles. My legs were screaming for me to stop, but I knew that if I rested I would never get back up. My head was pounding like a drum from the impact only a few hours ago. The temperature was lowering quickly, the remains of the jeans and t-shirt I was wearing weren't going to keep me warm. The pains in my stomach had dulled, but there was a sharp ache that I knew I wouldn't be able to cope with for much longer.

After finishing my phone call with my parents, I leaned back on the sofa, a huff escaping my lips. The feel of my wife's small, delicate fingers combing through my hair made my tense muscles relax at her touch and eyes close softly.

"So now I have a chance to meet the famous Ellie Foster?" I heard her murmur. Too tired to respond, I just hummed in response, my smile growing a fraction bigger. 

            "Go to sleep, we'll talk more in the morning." Her soft tone lulled me into a deep slumber.

It was early 7 o'clock in the morning when a giggling bundle jumped onto my stomach. With a 'oof' and the loss of breath I swooped up my giggling son and tossed him in the air. Grabbing him back in my arms, I grabbed his ankles and held him off the ground. His giggles lighting up my face and the room around us. My little son Jay had a beaming smile on his face and couldn't stop laughing from being suspended in the air. His shocking green eyes latched onto mine and his blond locks fell into the air. It made him look like a mini-me. 

"DADDY! Put me down!" he squealed between laughs, "Mommy wanted me to get you for breakfast, you slept on the couch last night!" 

Turning him the right way round, I placed him on the floor and watched as he ran away giggling. I saw him stop at the entrance to the kitchen and looks around. 

"Alpha’s outside remember Hun, he doesn't sleep in the house now. He's to big and could damage something." Sam says coming over and giving him a hug. A small smile returns to my face as I look to the two people who make my whole world complete. 

She sits him down and sets a small bowl of scrambled eggs in front of him, doing the same for me as I sit next to him. Looking down at my son as I started to eat, I noticed he had barely touched his food. 

I stood slowly, watching his head shoot up and his hopeful eyes lock onto mine. "I'll go and bring Alpha in for you bud, eat your breakfast though." 

Giving Sam a kiss, I grabbed the leash by the back kitchen door and left the house. My bare feet shivered at the touch of the cold decking in the garden. The sudden bark of the dog made me drop everything and forget about having frozen feet. The leash slipped through my hands and fell with a clatter against the wood. 

Seeing the straining chain holding to dog to the kennel, I grabbed his collar and shoved him towards the house. He didn't budge; the over sized German Shepard puppy just kept growling at the other side of his kennel.

Giving him a hard shove, he started to back off and back to the house. Hearing the bang of the garden gate, I looked to see the latch was ripped after the storm a few nights ago. Looking around, I tried to see if anything was out of the ordinary. All I saw was a bloodied foot. 

Gingerly pulling against it, an incredibly thin body was revealed. The arms and legs were scarred deep and bleeding profusely. Trying to get a firm grip on the arms, I turned her over, instantly recognizing the brunette hair and soft face. Although mangled, bruised and scarred, I would never be able to forget her. 

"Call an ambulance!" I screamed behind me. Taking her face gently into face I started to whisper softly to her, "It'll be okay Ellie, I'll get you fixed up, and I-I’ll get you help."

Placing two fingers to her throat, I found no pulse. I started to notice the blood pooling around her head and legs. Placing my hands on her chest, I tried to remember all of the health training I had for the force. Whatever I was doing though wasn't working. 

By the time the paramedics came, my hands were slipping off her chest as they were slick with blood, my arms ached and the fog of tears was making it hard to see in front of me.

Soft hands pulled me away from her limp body, and I vaguely saw the stretcher being placed under her and she was taken away from me again.

"Sir, we need you to come with us." I looked towards him, and towards Sam. Words were becoming muddled in my head and I couldn’t understand what to do. 

"Go, I'll call your parents and we'll meet you there," she offered me a small smile before I raced into the ambulance and grabbed my sister’s cold hand. Praying that I would have the chance to know my sister again.
