Butterfly and the CEO
Zac’s point of view
I watch as Ellie reads the letter; it slips from her hands as her face turns white, and I say
“Ellie, are you okay, baby?”
I reach for her just before she hits the floor, picking her up in my arms as I say.
“Fuck, Ellie baby…..what's wrong?"
Butterfly and the CEOChapter 20Ellie’s point of view.Zac stayed by my side right through the statement; although I could feel his anger, he never said a word as I relived my nightmare. He gives me the strength to go through with this, and when I’m finished, he wipes away my tears, and when we're finally alone, he says,“I’m so fucking proud of you, Ellie; you are the bravest person I’ve ever known.”There's a knock on the office door, and Zac calls out.
Butterfly and the CEOChapter 21Ellie’s point of viewI wake up with the feeling of hands wrapped tightly around my neck; it gets harder to breathe. He laughs as he watches me fighting for my breath, as he says.“Did you really think you could escape from me, Ellie…”As he slaps me hard across my face, I scream as I see the knife in his hands. He smirks as he runs the blade down past my breasts and lower until he reaches my stomach. I’m crying now as he
Butterfly and the CEOChapter 22Zac’s point of view.The weekend flies by. A weekend spent in bed in each other's arms. There has been no update from the cops yet; all I know is that a warrant is out for Sam’s arrest, and I'm also hoping that Isaac will be able to find his whereabouts, and I can get this finished soon. It breaks my heart to see Ellie suffering like this.Ellie is still sleeping when I wake up, and I take a minute to look at her. My god, she is so beautiful with her fiery hair spread out across my pillows; I slide out of bed carefully,
Butterfly and the CEOChapter 23Zac’s point of view.The following week passes, and still no sign of Sam from either the police or from Issac's sources. I can see how angry he is with this; Issac has come to look at Ellie like a daughter, and Ellie every night I go home, I can see her getting more and more frustrated, and I know that her being at home all the time is driving her crazy. After she explained how Sam kept her prisoner, I can understand how hard this is on her.It’s Friday afternoon, and I’m just getting ready to head home for the week
Butterfly and the CEOChapter 24Ellie’s point of viewI wake up in Zac’s arms after a peaceful nights sleep with no nightmares; Zac smiles at me when I open my eyes as he says.“Goodmorning beautiful.”I giggle as I reply.“Good morning babe, were you watching me sleep?”He laughs.
Butterfly and the CEOChapter 25Ellie’s Point of view.“Fuck my head.”I moan before I finally manage to prise my eyes open. My head hurts so bad that I try to focus so I can see where I am. I’m lying on an old mattress on the floor in a room with no windows, I try to sit up, but it makes me feel sick and dizzy.“What the hell happened? Where am I?”I try to remember…..I was in the car with Issac, and there was a crash ….. And.“Ohhh, Noooo Sam…” I gasp.
Butterfly and the CEOChapter 26Ellie’s point of viewHe hits me hard in the face, and I try to put my hands in front of me to protect myself. As he hits me over and over again, I can feel the blood pouring down my face as I begin to feel dizzy, and I beg him.“Sam, please stop, please don't do this.”He spits in my face as he rages.“Your nothing but a useless fucking slut; I
Butterfly and the CEOChapter 27Zac’s point of view.I run with Ellie in my arms; when I get outside the warehouse, the emergency services have already arrived, and I carry her to one of the waiting ambulances. We head off to the hospital, the blue lights flashing, not that I need a reminder of how desperate Ellie’s condition is.They try to stop the bleeding from Ellie’s head as they radio ahead.“We have a code red coming in.” They say.
