I still don't know how long I've been here and I haven't asked. I haven't see Leo in a while. In fact I've not seen anyone. I tried to lift myself up and the pain was really intense. Then I heard the door open and I turned to see Allissa walk in with three men, one being Leo. Allissa walked over to me. "How are you feeling today?" She asked me. Leo went and had a seat the other two guys stood next to Allissa.
"In some pain." I said. Leo stood up.
"I think we need to have the doctor come in and check her out again." He said. Allissa turned to look at him.
"All in good time Leo." She said. "The time has come." Allissa said. I wasn't sure what she was talking about. She pulled a cell phone out of her pocket. She then handed it over to me. The two guys standing next to her pulled out guns. My heart started to race.
The guys cocked the guns and put them to my head. I felt the tears fall down my face. "Come on you guys, you don't have to hold the guns to her." Leo said, but no one listened. He just looked defeated and sat back down.
"You going to call your parents and tell them your in Paris." Allissa said.
"Why haven't we found anything out yet!?" I hollered inside Reese's office in front of Reese, Damon, Enzo and Dawson. I was losing patience.
"Hey man calm down. We're doing the best we can." Dawson said. I looked at Reese and he just hung his head down. Enzo walked over to me and put his hand on my shoulder. I sat down and put my face in my hands. It has been almost two weeks and there's nothing. How does this happen? There is nothing to go on. Everyone in the room seemed to be at a loss. Like we all didn't know what to do next. It was almost like Beth never existed. I had to do something. I couldn't keep sitting at this house not helping, because I wasn't part of the mafia. I had to sit back like the wife's and do nothing, well I'm over that.
"Enzo, I need to talk to you." I said. He nodded at me and as we were getting ready to leave the office, Reese's cell phone went off.
He picked it up and looked at it. "It's an unknown number." He said looking to Damon.
"Answer it." Damon said. We all stood quiet. He hit speaker.
"This is Reese Jackson?"
"Adriana baby, are you okay? Where are you?"
"I'm in Paris, daddy."
"Paris? What do you mean your in Paris?"
"I've been here the whole time daddy."
"Can anyone hear me talking to you?"
"Has someone taken you?"
Damon started to write something down on a piece of paper. He showed it to Reese.
"Baby, we need you to come home. We have all been very worried about you."
"I'll be home when I'm ready to come home. Don't worry about me. I'm okay. Goodbye daddy."
But the call went dead. I wanted to know what Damon told Reese. I walked over to the desk and grabbed the paper. Damon told Reese to play along. Damon and Enzo took Reese's phone and left the office. "Who would take my daughter Dante?" Reese asked. I just shook my head.
"I don't know." I said.
"We need to find Sierra, I've got a feeling she is behind this." Reese said. "After what she pulled with me." He said. I had a hard time thinking Sierra was behind something like this. I mean the woman was a lot of things, but a kidnapper? I just wasn't so sure. Reese got up and left the office. I knew he was going to tell Enzo and Damon about Sierra, and I knew what that was going to lead to. I didn't have a choice I had to let them do what they did and I still needed to talk with Enzo.
Her voice sounded so far away. When she first said she was in Paris, my heart dropped. She just didn't sound right. She sounded sick. I started to get angry and I knew I needed to get away. I ran up to her room and grabbed my car keys. As I ran out the bedroom door, Enzo stopped me in the hallway. "Hey, where are you off to?" He asked me.
"I just need some air, I've got to get out of here for a while." I said.
"How about some company?" He asked me. I nodded my head at him and we left. We got inside my car and took off down the road. "So why don't you tell me what you wanted to talk to me about?" Enzo said.
"I want back in." I just blurted out. Enzo took a deep breath.
"You want back in or you want back in so you can help find Adriana?" He asked me. I just looked over at him. He smiled at me. "I know your stressed out about her, but we now have something to go off of now. We know that she was taken. Look how about if I let you start helping out?" He said.
"I would very much like that." I said.
"You know Dante, you were one of my best, and I have to say hearing you say you want back in is something I would never turn down, but I can only allow you back for the right reasons. You know your like a son to me." He said.
I just smiled to myself. My eyes were kept on the road. Something on the road caught my eye. I pulled the car over immediately. Enzo had to grab the door. "What's wrong Dante?" He asked me. I didn't answer him. I just got out of the car and went to the road. There were skid marks on the road and a couple of pieces of car in the grass.
"Enzo, I need you to get on the phone and call Reese, ask him if there have been any accidents or fender bender's on this road." He nodded at me and got on his phone. I walked around some more. This road was private only people coming and going to Adriana's home would be on this road.
I walked over to the side of the road. I was facing a small down hill slop into some woods and a field. Something else caught my eyes and I took off down the side of the road. I heard Enzo following me. "Wait Dante, where are you going?" He hollered at me. I got to a huge pile of branches. I started to remove them and underneath was Beth's smashed up car. My breath caught in my chest and Enzo jumped back on his phone. With in a matter of seconds everyone was out here.
"How the fuck did she survive this?" Reese hollered.
"She has to be hurt." I said, and when I said that I got scared. I walked over to Dawson's side and pulled his gun out of it's holster and started to make my way back up the hill. Everyone rushed me. I was taken to the ground. "Get the fuck off of me." I hollered out. Damon and Dawson held me down and Enzo took the gun from me. "I've got to find Sierra, she has to know something." I shouted out. Damon stood me up.
"You let us do our jobs Dante." He snapped at me. I was so angry I almost let him have it. Not really a good idea considering who he is.
"Damon, Dante is one of my men." Enzo said. Reese shot me a look when Enzo said that.
"It doesn't matter Enzo, if that's the case he needs to fall in line." Damon said. Enzo walked over to Damon's side.
"Remember Damon, Adriana belongs to Dante, if this was Brook you would be acting the same way." Damon took a deep breath and looked over at me.
"Sorry man, but we have to work together not alone." Damon said to me. I nodded at him and took a deep breath.
Allissa hung up the phone before I could say anything else. Dumb bitch a smart person would have had the phone on speaker, but at least now my father knew I was taken. "Did he fall for it?" She asked me. I just nodded my head at her. She squealed and started to dance around. "Now my plan will fall into place." I saw Leo's jaw twitch. I shot him a look. "Now to find Dante and put my plan into place." She said. The other two guys had left the room. "Leo get her some dinner." She said to him. He stood up and I could see the anger on his face as he left the room. "I'll have the doctor here first thing in the morning and once your better we will have you on a plane to Paris." She said and left the room. I just shook my head and laid back down.
I wish there was a way to let my father know who took me, but I could only say so much. A few minutes later Leo came back in the room. He had a tray full of food, but I wasn't hungry. I just missed my family and I was tired of being in pain. I also missed Dante and was praying he wasn't going to fall for Allissa's bullshit. He sat the tray down. "I'm sorry Leo, I'm just not hungry tonight." He came over to my side and put his hand on my forehead.
"Your burning up." He said. He picked me up and took me into the bathroom. He sat me down on the toilet and started a bath. I was having a hard time keeping my eyes open. He pulled out a phone and told someone to have the doctor here now. He sat the phone down and picked me back up and put me in the tub. The water was cold and I yelled out as I blacked out.
