A/N This will most likely be in third person from now on unless I put the name of a person's point of view. And long time no see!
*Ring Ring* *Ring Ring* “What the hell?” Alex paces around her bedroom. It is 7:30 PM. She has been trying to get in touch with Anthony or Ian since 5:00 PM. Victoria fell asleep during the movie so she couldn’t get in touch with Ian anyway.
“Alex?” Mari comes into the room. “What’s wrong?”
“Neither one of them is answering! And I’ve been trying to call them for hours!” Alex flops on the bed. Mari makes her way over to her friend.
“Alex don’t worry about it. Normally after these meet-ups Youtube will normally throw them a party for congratulating them for getting this far to be able to have a meet-up. And these parties will last a long time.”
“You're right. Sorry I get worried really easily.”
“Come on Courtney and Olivia are watching tv. Let’s go see what’s on.”
Mari leads Alex into the living room to find Victoria passed out on one couch and Courtney and Olivia on the other.
“Hey guys! We are watching the news because nothing good was on.” Courtney says.
“What do you mean nothing good? ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ is the best!” Olivia protests.
“As I said, nothing is on.” Courtney replies. Everyone laughs except for Olivia. Mari and Alex find a place to sit on the couch.
“Breaking news. Internet famous duo ‘Smosh’ has been kidnapped.” A news reporter said.
At that moment, Mari, Alex, Courtney, and Olivia stare at the tv in complete shock. Their mouths drop as the reporter continues, “At a meet-up earlier today, a strange man came to their booth and blew a hole in the stage causing the duo to fall through and be taken by other people apart of this scheme. A fan recorded the whole thing on camera. Let’s take a look.” The screen shows a poorly recorded video of this man talking to Ian and Anthony. Anthony sat in shock as Ian spoke.
“He is having a panic attack! I wish I could’ve been there to comfort him!” Alex says under her breathe.
“What kind of psycho would do this?” Courtney said.
It was then, when the video came to an end. The stage just fell and Smosh was taken away. The person responsible for this attack turned around and looked directly into the camera.
Alex’s mouth dropped. She was in complete shock. Mari paused the tv at that moment. It felt as though he was staring into her eyes burning and tearing at all the painful memories he caused.
“Who is that?” Olivia asked.
“It’s Josh.” you said in a whisper.
“Who’s Josh?” Olivia asked. Mari took the liberty of briefly explaining what happened to you in your old life. Victoria started waking up now. She yawned, looked at Alex, looked at the tv, and back to Alex.
“Oh no. What happened?!” Victoria demanded. The three Smosh girls explain the situation to their new friend. Alex, still staring at the tv, had begun crying. She didn’t even realize it.
*Ring Ring* *Ring Ring* Alex’s phone goes off on the table. Alex doesn’t move for it so Victoria answers.
“Hello? Who is this?”
“Oh hello Victoria! Didn’t expect to hear your voice so soon!”
“What the hell is this who are you and how do you know me?”
“Oh I’ve known you for a while now. I just loved pissing you off whenever Alex came home late.”
“Josh. You’re going to regret this!”
“No, no you are! Hand the phone to Alex right now!”
Victoria handed the phone to Alex. Alex put the phone to her ear wearily and answered.
“Oh how I’ve missed hearing your voice Alex!”
“What do you want Josh?”
“You! Meet me at the warehouses down by the bridge tonight by midnight or your precious boyfriend will get what he deserves for taking my girl.” Josh laughs.
“Fine but don’t hurt Ian or Anthony!”
“Ian isn’t the one I wanted. I let him go if that makes you happy.” At that moment there is a loud bang on the door. Victoria walks over to the door and to her surprise, Ian walks in. Victoria hugs him tight.
“He is there now isn’t he? See I have a little heart somewhere. Anyway meet me there tonight. Alone!”
Josh hangs up the phone. Alex sits there, of course, in shock. She checks her phone for the time. It’s 9:47pm.
“Great. What am I going to do?”
“You can’t go Alex! You absolutely can’t!
Look look over to find Ian was the one who spoke to you.
“Listen, he had us in this warehouse not too far from here. The place smelled of dried blood. He separated Anthony and I. I was shoved into a van again and was dropped off a block from here. Someone in the car told me to not do anything but find you guys and to never call the cops. Alex you can’t go to him!”
“But I have to! He still has Anthony! Josh said to meet him at the warehouses by the bridge at midnight o-or he’ll-” Alex can’t finish because saying that her boyfriend could possibly get killed just makes everything worse.
Before anyone can say anything else, Alex gets up and walks away to her room. She can hear Courtney, Mari, and Olivia call the other Smosh members to explain what has happened.
“I have to go. I just have to. I wouldn’t be able to live with myself if Anthony gets hurt from Josh. I know that I can handle his pain but Anthony has never met him and he doesn’t know how powerful Josh is. No matter what the others think, I must go save Anthony!”
Alex begins packing a small backpack to take with her. She packs some snacks, waters, a first aid kit. She stuffs some pocket knives in her shoes and pockets. Alex pulls her hair back into a ponytail. By the time she is fully ready to leave it is 11:15pm.
“45 more minutes might as well go eat something.”
Alex finally leaves her room and goes into the kitchen. She looks around and finds some leftover pizza. As she is eating, she turns around to find only Mari, Victoria, and Ian.
“I thought the whole Smosh family was going to be here.” Alex states.
“We told them that they should stay home because we thought it would make things worse for you.” Mari said.
“Why do you look like you’re about to go somewhere?” Ian questions.
Alex takes a breath before saying, “I know what you guys are thinking but hear me out. Yes I am going to meet with Josh.” The three look at Alex in awe, but Alex continues, “I need to go and get Anthony out of there for his own sake. He never knew Josh and he doesn’t know how powerful and abusive he is. I do, so I am willing to do what it takes to save him! I am almost certain that I know what Josh wants and I will pay the price. Just please promise me one thing,” Alex takes a deep breath, “don’t come looking for me. Josh will most likely make me go back to Rhode Island with him and who knows what’s going to happen.”
Ian speaks first, “Alex no! I understand that you have to go save Anthony but not letting us find you after is absurd!”
“Ian’s right you have to come back! Remember how miserable you were? I can’t let you be like that again! Especially when I’m not even there to help you at times when he his gone.” Victoria says concerned.
“You just have to trust me. Trust that I will fight for as long as it takes to get myself out of there.” Alex says finally.
*Beep Beep* Alex’s phone goes off. It’s a timer letting her know that she have 10 minutes to get to the warehouses.
“I have to go now.” Alex says. She makes her way to her friends. They stand to her hug. Victoria and Mari start crying. As Alex hugs Ian, she whispers in his ear, “Take care of Vicky.”
Alex grabs her bag and exits the apartment. By the time it takes her to walk to the meetup spot it’s 11:59pm.
Alex waits for a minute. Then as she is standing there waiting, her head flies to the side as if someone came to knock her out. Then everything around her fades to black as Alex collapses to the ground. Nothing can save her from what is to come…
