Meghan was caught between a rock and a literally hard place and it was not a comfy place to be in.
She's known all along that this day would come but she'd never expected it to be this soon.
The day she'd have to crawl out of the dark harbor she'd let herself sink into and do something about all she knew.
It felt years too late, she'd kept quiet for too long.
Fuck that monster for everything he did and herself too for letting the fear of him and what he could do to her daughters kill the woman she'd been and turn her into this dumb vegetable she's become.
"Mum please say something, I need you to tell me what they want. Help me save Riley." She could hear Jocie's frantic pleading next to her.
The knowledge of her youngest being in captivity in the hands of those vessels of evil and the sight of her oldest kneeling beside her and bawling her eyes out spurred her, filling her with the anger and courage that she needed to get
The deeper they went into the garage, the darker and dirtier it got, but Jordan would rather be here for Riley than anywhere else in the world.Brad had split the group up and he found himself heading somewhere north of the place with only his weapons, courage and anger to keep him going.The garage had turned out to be a front, an abandoned one at the moment. There were no signs of life or occupancy in here, nothing except filth and a gut wrenching smell.But Charlie had sworn this was it and that meant there has to be somewhere else, another outlet.Hopefully one of them will stumble upon it soon and alert the others.He couldn't wait for this phase of shit to be over and for their lives to return to even the tiniest bit of normalcy.He needed a break from all these.He came to an abrupt stop at the first sign of voices he heard.This was definitely it, the outlet they were looking for.And fuck it was a whole goddamn
Dick move, that's what not waiting for the guys to come for back up was. He'd done it with the best of intentions but the cold nuzzle of the gun against his neck set rethink wheels in motion in his head. What the fuck had he been thinking, now instead of saving a life, he'd ended up endangering two or even more With the gun still pressed hard against his neck, the guy was quick to disarm him, taking his gun first. "Move!" The guy holding the gun behind him commanded, yelling like someone crazed from the taste of power the gun he held provided. He hated the fact that he'd let himself get caught but his best option was obeying, to keep him alive and definitely Riley too. He couldn't let them pump him full of bullets yet, he still had so much to do, do much to say to JoJo. That thick headed girl, if only she knew how much he loves her, he wanted so much with her and that can't be accomplished with dying here in some
It was quiet in the room when Jordan came to and it was a lot darker than he remembered, like someone had turned off the light. He didn't even remember passing out in the first place but he must have succumbed to the beckoning darkness at some point. His arm joints hurt from being cuffed so wide aapart and his body hurt from all the hitting her received from 'the boss' puppet', the mad mongrel that had pounced. His head throbbed with an ache that threatened to split it open but he had a will to rise above it. His only concern though was finding out where they were keeping Riley, nobody has mentioned it or her since he's been here and it scared him to think of the reasons why. And the big man in the room, who was still watching the couch wasn't making any move at all or saying anything to him. If he had the luxury, he'd have wondered what it was that had all this attention to this extent but it wasn't don't he was willing to consider ye
JoJo had no idea what she was going to find inside the building even as she went inside it, not a fucking clue. She had nothing except her bravery and need. She had no idea what awaited her in there but the curiosity to find out what it was her mother had kept here pushed her further in. Her mother, she'd hoped, would have done better, had told her of this place earlier than now and have her better prepared but nope . She wished at the moment that Meghan hadn't played her amnesia game so well, she'd played her for a fool too in the process. An she'd fell so hard for it. Not the time for looking back at a hurtful past, she realised as there was a bleak future waiting, if she fails. The door to the main building didn't give way as easily as the first entrance had. She had to hone in on all the patience she had inside her for someone from inside to find her and scan her thoroughly before the doors could push back to let he
The woman lead them out of her office and down some awfully long hallway until they finally came to an odd looking door at the end of it.JoJo waited, rather impatiently, while she went through the complicated process of unlocking it and drawing it open to grant them access.As soon as she stepped inside the room, JoJo was greeted by and endless rows of lockers.She doubted this room ever did see a lot of people because from what she could tell it needed a lot of cleaning.She could choke up easily on the amount of dust that had accumulated in it, especially at the rows behind.Funny how it didn't seem to bother her companion.This was getting eerily interesting, she'd expected every other thing but this.It was like her mother was playing some kinda he with them.But it was all coming together to her somehow and begining to make some kind
The cry that Jordan heard could be unmistakable, he knew who it belonged to and it both relieved and enraged him at the same time. It relieved him to know that she was still alive and from what he was forcing himself to believe, okay too. And it enraged him that she was in tears and probably scared half to death and he could do nothing to help her, nothing to save her except hang here and wait for his fate. He had no doubt it'd be ugly judging from what he'd done to the two of their guys that had been unfortunate in his home. He wasn't sure how much longer he could wait though for Brad and the rest to find them. What the fuck was keeping them. His limbs felt numb when they were not hurting and and his head hurt so much that a quick death might be looking like the better option soon. He must have taken a bad hit to it for him to feel so faint with the pounding in it. The door to the room creaked open and there were foots
Tatt knew he was ready to protect this child seating here with him and begging to be sent home with his life. She didn't deserve to die here even if that's what the boss wanted. She was too young, with her whole life still ahead of her and too innocent to be used as a threat warning. He didn't give a fuck' what the old guy wanted. He'd made it clear the day he'd signed up with them that there'd be no kid casualties and the man had agreed, he probably had mini amnesia that he hoped to cure with his defiance. He zoned out watching her while Shaggs had ranted on and on about what the boss wanted him to do with her. Was this what it had been with his boy? Some boss out back taking a drag out of his Cuban Ciga and giving orders that his life be snuffed so early as a revenge to his boy. He'd even forgotten about the guy that Shaggs had dragged into the room at gun point until he'd started yanking hard on his restraints and th
With the poor signalling in the fucking garage, it took a while before Brad got the signal from Jordan's device but he did, at least he'd believed it to be his own coming from somewhere inside, and he had to do some thinking before he proceeded. Albeit the fact that this was his most I'll prepped rescue mission, it wasn't his first and he knew the drill. The fucking signal was stationary, and if there's anything he knew about Jordan, it was that the man wouldn't be standing at a spot for as long as this one was. Jordan was a hot blooded fellow under fire and sometimes that pushed him to go irrational, acting before thinking and if that was the case currently, it only meant one thing. Thry weren't going in to rescue a little girl now, they had his best friend to think of now too. Those bastard obviously had him and that didn't bode well for them, he had to think and act fast. It was confirmed when he got the guys to converge and he turn
