A NOVEL ON STOCKHOLM SYNDROME BOOK OF A THREE BOOK SERIES *TRIGGER WARNING* This book contains scenes that some readers may find disturbing… and also slightly annoying. “Miss. Iris, do you believe she has a point?” she asked and returned to her seat once again. “I don’t think so, her father and uncle deserve to go to jail.” My answer extracted a smile from her like she was proud of my response. “My name is Christine; I am a renowned medico-legal psychotherapist. Been in the business for over twenty years and that is what a case of Stockholm syndrome looks like. In my years of experience, we see situations similar to this but its our job to help the victims realize” “Wow…” I started, really amazed at what she had said and what her work entails. I was only concerned why they locked me in a room with a psychotherapist “it must be difficult at times” I added. “yeah, its difficult every time” she laughed “but today isn’t about me, I have a question for you.” There was a brief pause in between before she carried on “Does Hunter deserve to go to jail?”View More
Iris's p.o.v.-----The tunes for Unconditionally by Katy Perry was being played so softly by the DJ and it's lull filled the entire hall.The room was slightly beginning to get filled up by business associates, family members and even the press.Clicks from cameras and chatters from people engaged in discussions were prominent in the enclosed space, filling the area with excitement and buzz.I stood at the entrance and surveyed the black and blue themed hall in awe and gloom. Claudette has really got a top notch style.I had already handed Louie to Jenny so she could prepare to be the 'flower girl' and now I regret it cause I have no company.I engaged in a little chat with Guillermo a few minutes ago before I entered the hall but he had to leave so he can go get the priest.No sign of the bride and groo
Iris's p.o.v." Mommy am I going to be okay?" Louisa asks as I tuck her in.We had finally arrived home after a brief, suspiciously quiet, tiring drive.Seriously, the silence made the journey longer than it should." Yes baby but the doctor said for you to be okay, all you have to do is sleep, eat, draw and sleep some more" I answered with a smile." Yaaaay" she cheered but it ached my heart when I heard how weak it sounded." Go to sleep cupcake" I whispered and placed a soft kiss on her forehead." Mmmmm" she moaned softly and slowly shut her eyes in an attempt to fall asleep.I noticed her little winks and sighs and unknowingly, a chuckle escaped my lips and I began using my thumb to trace her plump cheek outline." Mommy, what about daddy?" Huh!?
Hunter's p.o.v.It's tomorrow.Finally, the wedding is tomorrow and I've been feeling jiggly since morning.If jiggly is indeed a word.I've gotten a suit picked out with the help of Guillermo and Michelle says she's already got her gown too.The venue was being set up by Claudette and Jenny while Cheryn took charge of the caterers.Edward handling the convoys and my family and friends are flying in today.I'm honestly feeling like a girl who's about to have her first kiss.Fucking excited!.Nothing can honestly dampen my mood right now.I'm on my way home and a little early from work cause I promised Louisa that I'd take her out and that's exactly what I'm gonna do.Because I seriously doubt if Michelle would allow me to hang out with s
Iris's p.o.v.————— After a while of thinking and consideration, Claudette and I decided to make the proposal party a small one. I personally wanted it smaller than that, possibly just two people and a ring but Claudette does know how to throw a fit. So we chose his office as the venue and invited a few people asides from his employees. Edward, Guillermo, Claudette, Mrs Reid and her children ( well except Meredith and of course Michelle ) and some business partners he was particularly fond of. Mrs Reid took it as a point of duty to invite some of Meredith's friends. That also, I saw no use for.Nine o'clock pm sharp. It's time for Michelle to walk into her surprise." Hu
Hunter's p.o.v.-------I've always learnt to detest Monday morning's but today's adrenaline rush and anticipation almost killed me.Right now it's a few minutes passed six pm and I have never been happier with an early close of work.Why?Well here's why. On my way to the office this morning Mr Reid gave me a phone call saying he had important information for me.And the rest seems like history.Currently I was in my car, driving down to the restaurant he'd chosen for the meeting and my heart is pounding so loudly in my ears.Okay, I know I said I'd given up on everything but for some reason I still feel the need to save my life.Survival instincts right?Why the hell is the journey taking so long?I had to
Third person p.o.v.It was a few minutes to three am but she hadn't winked a slumber, she looked to her side to ensure her baby was tucked in safe and sound.She sighed softly and turned to her side to try catching some sleep.After a few minutes of squeezing her eyes to no avail, she had to figure out what was wrong with her.No..She knew exactly what's wrong. Ever since Hunter had come home looking so sad and crestfallen, she hadn't felt so comfortable.Her little thought told her that it had something to do with Mr Reid and the deal, probably Mr Reid hadn't agreed with the terms.If that were to be the case then Hunter is really doomed, he can't get any backing or financial support to pay off the debts.He was left to the fate of some drug Lord's somewhere around the world.But th
Hunter's p.o.v." Mr McConnell?" A plump lady calls as soon as she steps out of the room." Yes?" I stood to my feet." Mr Reid would see you now. He's out the balcony" she smiles briefly before walking away.The event was currently taking place downstairs and after searching for Mr Reid for over an hour I decided to give him a call.He detailed that he was on the second floor, room fifty two C in the hallway.I just realized this building was also a luxury guest inn." Thank goodness" I smiled to myself in apprehension of speaking with Mr Reid and proceeded to locate his room.I've been harboring thoughts about revealing my intentions to Mr Reid and it's high time that I did.Everything else is currently a secondary discussion. Once he's done saying what he has in store, I'll
Iris's p.o.v.-----So Hunter has been deathly quiet.And I have been biting my lips to avoid laughing at his nervousness.Edward was driving us to the venue and it seemed like forever to Hunter." Edward, how much longer do we have to complete this journey?" Hunter finally asked after glancing at his watch in every five minutes interval for the past fifteen minutes." Am I hearing a modified adult version of ' are we there yet?' " Edward mocked and I lost it.I laughed out so loudly that I was gasping for air. But when I want to stop, a quick look at Hunter's face sends me reeling in laughter once more." Stop..... Stop... I can't..." I managed to blurt in between my laughter." Iris you're insane" I heard Hunter's voice but it seems to be laced with amuseme
🎶 hold my hand and you promised, to never let go.Iris's p.o.v.-----" It's our problem freeeee... Philosophyyyy... HAKUNA MATATAAA!!" " Someone should remind Jules never to leave her kid with Cheryn anymore" Claudette and I burst into laughter at Jenny's complain because of Louisa and Cheryn's newly profound joy.I wouldn't blame her, they've been singing Lion King soundtracks ever since they came in here.Don't get me started on their imitation of the monkey in the beginning." Don't listen to her Louie, she's just jealous" Cheryn patted Louisa's head and smirked at Jenny." Nuh-uh... Mommy said jealousy is very very bad" Louie scolded and folded her arms to send a disappointed look to Jenny." Testify angel" Claudette barked in laughter as she applied a layer of c
