I was shoved to the cold hard ground. I cried out when my knees hit the ground. "Oh shut the fuck up. Your such a fucking baby." I heard the voice say. I knew right away that it was Allissa.
"Aren't you getting tired of all this shit Allissa?" I asked. She ripped the thing off my head that was covering my eyes. I tried to focus on my surroundings and realized I was in some sort of abandoned run down warehouse. There was a man standing at the door with a gun, and Allissa was standing in front of me.
"Now, what shit are you referring to?" She asked me.
"I'm talking about Dante. I mean you had him for a whole year. Nothing's changed, he still doesn't want you." I spit out. She came over to me and punched me hard in the face. I turned and spit out blood. "That's all you got? Beat me while I'm tied up. Your nothing but a fucking coward." I said. She balled her fist up and started to scream. I waited for her next blow.
She just walked out of the room. I was able to work my hands free from the ropes. A few seconds later she came back in with another man and threw Leo at my feet. I reached out for him. "Leo? Leo?" I hollered out, but he was out cold. He had a bullet hole in his side and was bleeding. I tried to place my hands on the wound, but the man pushed me away from him. "Please help him Allissa." I said.
"Oh now you want a favor from me." She said.
"How can you be so cruel. He once loved you." I spit out.
"A lot of men love me Beth. You think I give a shit about him?" She said smiling. I just shook my head. I looked up at her with tears pouring out of my eyes.
"You might as well kill me Allissa, because no matter what you do, Dante is never going to love you." I said and looked back down to the ground. I just heard laughing.
"You think I don't know that already? I'm giving up on him, but not before I kill you in front of his face, so he can feel the pain I feel because he doesn't love me back." She said. This crazy hooker. I said to myself.
"What exactly did we ever do to you!" I hollered out at her. She stopped and turned back to me.
"If you weren't there, he would have fell for me, not you." She said.
"That's not true Allissa, I met him first. You were both after me. Let's not forget that." I said. She walked over to me and went to her knees in front of me. She reached out and pushed some of my hair behind my ear.
"Maybe your right Beth, maybe it's you I've wanted all along." She said softly. I scooted back, away from her. She stood up and left the room. I crawled back over to Leo and pulled him into my lap.
"Please Leo, please. I need you to open your eyes." I said to him. I pulled my shirt up over my body and used it to place pressure on his wound. He cried out a little in pain. "Leo." I said, quietly to him. He opened his eyes and looked up at me. He smiled.
"Hey you." He said. Really? I said to myself. He tried to move, but hollered out in pain. "What's going on? What happened?" He asked.
"Allissa has us. You were shot and they brought us to some warehouse." I said. He looked down at his side.
"Well that's a first. I've never been shot before. Does this make me sexy?" He asked me. I just shook my head at him.
"Yep, real sexy watching you die." I said. He smiled at me. "Do you think you can stand up?" I asked him.
"I think so." He said. I stood up and helped him get to his feet. He looked at my face. "Who hit you?" He said sounding angry.
"Allissa and some guy." I said. He ran his hand down my face.
"I'm going to kill her." He said.
"Sure turbo you do that." I said. The man that was watching the door, wasn't there any longer. We made our way to the door and I looked up and down the hallway. I didn't see anyone. We started to make our way slowly down the hall. I could hear voices and I moved us closer to them. We got to an open door and I peeked inside. There stood Allissa and Emma lost in conversation.
"Where is she?" Emma asked.
"Don't worry, she is fine. For the time being." Allissa said.
"You told me no one was going to get hurt besides her." Emma said.
"Yeah, well shit happens. If she would have came alone, that wouldn't have happened." Allissa said.
"Where's my money?" Emma asked. My heart fell out of my ass, as I realized Emma was in on this. How could she? I said to myself. I continued to watch and listen.
"Don't worry, I've got your money right here in this bag." Allissa said. I watched her turn and pick up a bag, but then she also picked up a gun. I started to warn Emma, but Allissa turned to fast and shot Emma in the head. I watched her lifeless body fall to the ground. Leo pulled me back into his arms. I cried out and Leo tried to keep me quiet.
"She is going to kill us." I whispered out. I looked up just in time to see a man approach us and hit Leo over the head with the back of a gun. Leo dropped to the ground. I turned to run, but I didn't get very far.
We got to the restaurant and found a bunch of police. We found out people called the police when a gun fight went on. Someone told them some man was shot and a girl was taken. My heart was pounding in my chest. I pulled out my cell phone and dialed Allissa's phone number.
"I knew you would call soon."
"Where is she Allissa?"
"So eager Dante, I don't know what it is about her you like so much."
"Correction, I don't like her you stupid bitch. I love her. Now where the fuck is she!"
"Relax Dante, or you won't see her again. Besides, she is just fine."
"What the fuck do you want Allissa?"
"Well you of course."
"Where are you?"
"You think it's going to be that easy?"
"Then what do you want me to do?"
"I want you to hand yourself over to me, I want you to love me. She doesn't know you like I do. She can't give you what I can."
"Just tell me what you want."
"She don't love you Dante, she is in love with Leo. How can you want her when she doesn't even want you."
"Just fucking tell me what you want me to do."
"I want you to come where we are, alone."
"I can't do that."
"Then you can come for her body."
"Where are you?"
She gave me the address to where she was. This time I wasn't going off alone. I told Damon and everyone else what was going on. I looked over at Reese. "I'm sorry, I would do this alone, but the last time I did it that way, I lost her for a year." I said, looking down. Reese got up and came over to my side.
"Your doing the right thing son." He said. We formulated a plan and with in the hour, our men already had the place surrounded. This wasn't going to end well. I just didn't know what side was going to die. We didn't know how many people were inside the place, or if it was just Allissa and Beth. Knowing Allissa, she didn't pull this off alone. We all strapped up and everyone else was hiding waiting for orders.
"Your going to head in alone. Don't worry, we will be right behind you." Enzo said, as I nodded at him and started to walk inside the warehouse. I ended up in a large open space. I looked around and didn't see anyone anywhere. I started to make my way across the room.
"That's far enough Dante." I heard Allissa's voice ring out. I stopped and tried to focus on the area her voice came from, but it was dark and very little light. She walked out of the darkness with Beth in front of her and a gun to her head. Beth was bleeding from her face and head and had tears falling down her face. My heart broke, but my anger over rode the pain. I started to go for my gun. "Don't do it Dante or I'll kill her right now." Allissa hissed out. That's when my men came running in and all had guns on her. She grabbed Beth and pulled her in front of her. Her eyes kept going back and forth between all the men in the room.
She hollered out and about six men came out of no where. They had guns on us. I pulled my gun and pointed it at Allissa. "This doesn't look good for you Allissa." I said. We had at least ten men and more waiting outside. Where as Allissa, only had about six men behind her. I watched as her men assessed the situation, then they started to back up. I knew Allissa was screwed. She looked over her shoulder and came to the realization she was fucked. She kept her shaking hand on Beth and kept the gun to her head.
"Why are you doing this Dante? I've done nothing but love you. I'll kill her if you kill me." She spit out. I started to move closer to her. She pressed the gun harder to Beth's head and Beth cried out. I stopped as I saw Leo come out of a side door. He had a gun and placed his finger on his lips to shush me. I kept my eyes on Allissa.
"Let her go Allissa." I said. Leo slowly started to approach Allissa.
He pulled the gun up and pushed it against Allissa's head. "Let her go." He hissed out. Allissa immediately let Beth go and Beth fell to the ground and crawled away. Leo held Allissa with a gun to her head. I walked over to them and got in Allissa's face. She started to cry.
"Don't start crying now. It won't save you." I said through my teeth. I turned to look at Beth who had a frightened look on her face. Reese came running to her side. I turned and looked back at Allissa. I reached down and pulled a large knife out of my strap attached to my leg. Leo nodded at me when I came back up.
"Please Dante, don't kill me." Allissa said through tears. I didn't even think twice as I slashed the knife across her throat. It killed her instantly and her body fell to the ground. Leo also went to his knees.
I helped him back up and realized he had been shot in the side. "I think I'm dying man." He said.
"Not today your not." I said to him as Beth ran to our sides. She wrapped her arms around me. I picked her up bridal style, as Damon and Enzo took Leo. "It's over now sugar. You can breath." I said to her, kissing her forehead.
