10. Explanations, truths and paybacks

I don't know how long we have been here, but it feels like weeks. However, it has probably only been a few days. Aiden and Vanessa appears numerous times a day, beating us and tie and untie us. It weird, really. Aiden always ties us up and beats us, and Vanessa always unties us and leaves.

"Good morning, bitches," Aiden says when he walks into our cell. He looks at me and smirks at me with lust filled eyes. Oh gosh, I have a bad feeling about this. Then he looks at Selena and I feel panic emerge inside of me. 

"Don’t even think about it!" I snap but Aiden just continues smirking at us.

"Oh, Vanessa, dear!" He calls loudly over his shoulder. Vanessa comes in with a face just as confused at mine.

"Yes, Aiden?"

"Take Selena out with you, would ya’?" Aiden says, still looking at me. My eyes widen and I scream without realizing it.

"NO! PLEASE DON'T!" I get off of the floor and try to run toward Selena and Vanessa, but I’m being held back by arms around my waist.

"Hey, hey, hey, calm down, buttercup. We are just going to have some fun," Aiden whispers in my ear sending goosebumps down my back, but not the good kind.

I can’t do anything other than watch as Vanessa drags Selena out of the cell with tears running down my face.

When Selena and Vanessa are out of the cell and long gone, Aiden turns me around. However, before he can say anything I spit at him.  

"Don't worry, Becca, nothing is going to happen to your sister," Aiden whispers and bits his lip. I don't believe him for a second so I spit at him again.

"Don't ever do that again," Aiden says through gritted teeth. I should probably listen to him, but right now I just don’t give a fuck and spit at him a third time.

Aiden slaps me and throws me against the wall. I hit my head and black spots occupy my vision. I slide down the wall and everything goes black once my butt hits the cold concrete floor.


I wake up on the cold, hard floor with a horrible headache. Why am I so sore? I sit up in a sitting position and see my clothes laying in the corner of the room. My eyes widen and I look down at my naked body. He-he… 

I can't even say the word in my head. 

He has used me once again. I'm just begging he hasn’t touched Selena.

I crawl towards my clothes and put them on. I sit down on the floor again and stare off into space. I'm trying to think about my current situation but I just can't seem to focus. My thoughts somehow end up on Louis. 

Oh my gosh, Louis! He most have seen the news. I mean, who hasn't? What if he thinks I'm some kind of slut? What if he thinks I'm too much to handle? What if I'm not good enough to him? 

Oh, who am I kidding? 

He's THE Louis Tomlinson from One Direction, the famous billion dollar band. I'm not good enough for him. 

I'm not good enough for anybody.

The thought makes me cry all over again. I'm such a cry baby. I'm a mess, a slut, a bitch, a whore and just a worthless piece of shit. 

I'm so naïve, just like Vanessa said. 

I lay down on the hard, uncomfortable floor and drifts of the sleep.

Selena's POV

Vanessa drags me out of the cell and into another cell.

"Sit down," she commands and points to the chair in the middle of the room. I sit down and look at her. She has tears in her eyes, and she’s looking out of the window beside me.

"I'm sorry!" Vanessa suddenly shouts and puts her head in her hands. I just look at her wanting for an explanation.

"Why, Vanessa? Why are you doing this?" I finally ask after some time when I don’t get my explanation. My voice is weak and rusty from not talking in a long time.

Vanessa looks up from her hands. She walks up behind me and unties my hands. She comes up in front of me again and sits down on the floor in front of me. I look down at her as she cleans her throat.

"Aiden is not my boyfriend…" She trails off.

"What-?" I start but before I can continue Vanessa interrupts me.

"… He's my little brother!" She exclaim and puts her head in her hands. I’m speechless. Little brother? How can that ever be true? She doesn’t even look like him. Plus- isn’t she like around our age? 

"Yes, I know what's you're thinking, "Why am I helping my insane brother?" truth be told I don't even know myself. I'm a great hairdresser and I have my own salon at the age of 27! I don't know why I'm helping him, but no matter how disturbed that boy is he's still my baby brother and I love him,” Vanessa says wiping her eyes. I mentally raise an eyebrow; I would never have guessed she’s 27, she looks a lot younger. My eyes soften at her words, though. Somehow I feel like I can relate to her in some way. Even though Rebecca is nowhere nearly as damaged and disturbed as Aiden is, I know that she has been through much more than any sane 21-year-old can cope with. I know that she needs help, but because she’s not willing to talk to me, I don’t know what I can do to make it all a little easier for her. I can relate to her in the way that I would do anything for Rebecca, I would do anything to help her. I will probably die for her if it ever comes to that. 

"Have you ever tried to talk to him?" I ask carefully.

"Yes, I've tried everything!" She exclaims. "I've even tried sending him to a therapist, but nothing's working. He threatened the kill me if I didn't help him get Rebecca back. I know what he has done to that girl, and I really wish I didn't. It's the most horrible things!" I feel tears form in my eyes as I think about all the things he can have done to her. "After our parents died he was never the same. He started drinking and taking drugs. I couldn't get through to him," she says, starting to cry. I don't know what to do, she’s clearly hurting.

"Please, don't think that I was ever only friendly to Rebecca because of you. I really don't care that she's your sister. I already love her as my best friend, even though I have only know her for about a week, and the fact that I had to act like a total bitch to her and hit her, breaks my heart into pieces. I'm really ashamed to admit that I knew her before we met," Vanessa whispers the last thing so I almost don't hear her.

"WHAT?" I exclaim unable to control myself. Vanessa looks at me with eyes filled with shame and regret. 

"I already knew her, but she doesn't know it’s me. I have changes the color of my hair and I'm wearing colored contacts. I was there when she was kidnapped by Aiden the first time-"

"The first time? It's been more than once?" I interrupt her. The question’s stupid because I already know Rebecca has been with Aiden at least twice. I just wants to know if she's really telling me the truth.

"You don't know? Rebecca has been caught by Aiden three times in total, this time included." I didn't see that one coming.


"Yes, can I continue now?" I nod, "Thanks. Like I said, I was there the first time. Rebecca was only 16 and she was in a relationship with Aiden-"

"Relationship?" I exclaim interrupting her again. Vanessa glares at me and I shut up.

"Yes, she was in a relationship with him however, it wasn’t a good one. Aiden was hitting her and forcing her to do things she wasn't ready to do. You could say that he ra-raped her. That's how it all started," Vanessa finishes looking quite guilty. I can't believe this. I knew Rebecca was hurting but I had no idea it’s this bad! She would’ve never told me if all this hadn't happen. Scratch that, she wouldn’t have told me, period. 

"How are we going to help her?" I ask looking down at Vanessa. She thinks for a minute before she smiles an evil smile.

"I think I have got an idea," she says and whispers the plan into my ear so Aiden won’t be able to hear it if he’s nearby.

"That a great idea," I say and nod to her.

"I know," Vanessa says and flips her hair over her shoulder. We laugh, both of us unknown to what’s going on in the cell just down the hall.


"Are you feeling better now?" Vanessa asks and looks at me from across the room. I nod really fast and continues eating like I've never seen food before. Vanessa just giggles at me. I smile and finish my food. After our little talk Vanessa fetched me some food and cleared up some of the cuts on my arms. I’m just glad she didn’t question where they came from, because I know she knows that they have nothing to do with Aiden.

"You remember the plan, right?" Vanessa asks. I nod and walk up to her. I give her a hug. I'm not mad at her anymore, I mean there are not really much to be mad about anyway; apart from her hurting Rebecca and I, but I know that she’s being threatened, too. 

"Are you sure you want to do this?" Vanessa asks and grips my shoulders. I look her dead in the eyes.

"Positive." She gives me a worried look and walks out of the cell. I take a deep breath and sit on the floor in the middle at the cell.

Rebecca’s POV

Tired, exhausted, pained and sore I am laying on the hard concrete floor of the cell I’ve occupied for god knows how long. I’m laying straight on my back, looking at the empty ceiling, daydreaming of a life outside of these wall, when a familiar feeling suddenly comes over me. 

Nostalgia. I remember a time in my life where I was truly happy, and I smile a sad smile at the irony of the situation. 

I was barely 16 and I had just gotten my first boyfriend. I was so happy I felt like I was floating around on a pink cloud. 

I feel a painful tug at my heart as I think about him. 

Aiden was so sweet at first. For an entire month he was so good to me. He’s two years older than me, and I felt so cool when I would brag to everyone that I had a boyfriend that’s older than me. I would tell everyone who would listen, which really wasn’t that many anyway. 

However, when our one month anniversary came around Aiden suddenly changed. It’s like something clicked inside of him that caused him to change like a switch from one day to the other. He would start to hit me when I was being too annoying for his taste or when I wouldn’t do what he was asking of me. A few months went by like this and by the time I had actually turned 16 I was no longer a virgin. None of it was consensual but I didn’t dare to tell anyone about it. Aiden basically threatened to kill me if I told anyone. So I kept it all to myself. It continued like this for the next three years of my life. From the outside our relationship looked happy and healthy, but if you could actually be bothered to look at us and see behind the façade you could see the repression and the abuse from miles away. All the signs were there. For four years Aiden and I were working on and off. Sometimes he would leave me alone for a small period of time when he was getting bored with me, but he always came back, and I always welcomed him with open arms like the naïve moron I was. But what can I say? 

I was in love. 

"Good morning, my love!" Que the tears. I don’t really bother to hide them anymore. There's just no point.

Vanessa’s POV

I watch through the cell doors and see Rebecca "sleeping" with Aiden towering over her.

"Hey Aiden!" I say and open the door. His head snaps up to me and I freeze, looking into the cold, dead eyes of my once loving little brother. I shake my head to clear my head and walk up to him. I whisper something in his ear that I would be ashamed to repeat and his face breaks into a smirk. He nod and practically run out of the cell and down the hall toward Selena. I can't believe he actually believed me; Selena's the actress, not me.

I look down at Rebecca on the floor and my heart fills up with guilt and sorrow.

She looks horrible.

She looks so broken and malnourished.

"Is he gone?" Asks her small, weak voice just above a whisper.

"Yeah," I say in a low voice. Rebecca looks up at me. At first she glares at me but then sits up. She tries to get up off the floor but she ends up falling to her knees instead. I put my arms around her and help her get up from the dirty floor. Guilt eats me up from the inside; she’s not even strong enough to support herself.

"What are you doing?" Rebecca asks in a whisper.

"Helping a friend in need," I say and smile to her. She tries to smile back to me, but it turns out like more of a grimace. Together we slowly walk/limp out of the cell. It was going great until:

"Where the fuck do you think you're going?" Aiden’s voice booms from behind us. We stop dead in our tracks and I feel Rebecca shiver in my arms.

"Away from you!" I shout at him but not turning around. I don’t think I will be able to ever look him in the eyes after this. 

"Aiden! Aiden wait!" Selena's voice sounds desperate. I turn around and hides Rebecca behind me.

"Fuck off, you whore! You were in on this too, weren't you? Leading me on, thinking you could play me like you do with any other man you meet?" Selena wince and looks down obviously hurt.

I see red.

I let go of Rebecca's hand, letting her fall to the floor once again and storms over to Aiden. I punch him as hard as I can on his jaw. Fuck! That hurt like a bitch! Rebecca lets out a small scream. My hand’s possibly broken and my knuckles are bleeding, but Aiden is out cold on the floor. Had I known it would be that easy to knock him out, I would have done it a long time ago. 

Selena run up to me and hugs me. I pull away from the hug and put my arm back around Rebecca's waist. With Selena was on the other side, we hoist her up and walk towards the exit of the building. 

"Ready?" I ask, knowing what’s waiting them on the other side. What Aiden didn't know was the many people hiding in the bushes and behind the trees. Why they didn't come in sooner I don't know but it doesn't matter either.

Both Selena and Rebecca nod.

We walk out of the door-less doorframe and I immediately see the paparazzi’s run out of the bushes. What a lousy job they have got. They make me so angry.

"Hey, give her some space!" I yell at the people circling the three of us. Of course they don’t listen, they just continue taking their fucking pictures.

"I said-!" Before I can repeat what I said, Rebecca collapses in our arms. My eyes widen and I look at Selena. Her eyes are widen and filled with tears. I immediately sit down on my knees and tries to wake her up. Selena’s trying from the other side of her but nothing was working.

"Somebody call an ambulance!" I scream at the paralyzed people. Several of them take out their phones while others just stand and stare. 


"Please, Becca, please wake up," Selena whimpers as we hear sirens screaming in the distance.
