Ryder, book 1 of Ryder

The next morning I awoke to the sounds of people moving around. I sat up in bed and found Jonathan packing things in my room. I knew the reasons. Draco never stayed in one place too long. He was moving us again. More than likely because of me. I pulled myself out of bed and headed to the bathroom. I jumped into the shower and when I looked at myself in the mirror I almost fainted. I was beat to shit and looked so skinny. You would think I would be used to this by now, but you would be wrong. It’s been over three years that I was on the run and no one hurt me during that time.

I put on some sweats and pulled my hair into a side braid. I walked out and Miranda was sitting on the bed waiting for me. She gave me a small smile when I walked over to her. “We’re traveling buddies.” She said. My will power was non-existent at that moment. All I could do was nod at her. There was a car waiting outside just for me. I climbed into the back and Draco was already sitting inside.

“Come and sit with me.” He said as he tapped the seat next to him. I did as I was told. No need to start beatings this early in the morning. “I’m glad to have you back. I missed you very much. No more running okay?” I just sighed.

“No more running,” I said and gave him a smile. He reached down and kissed the top of my head. I felt my stomach turn immediately. “Where are we headed too?” He got a smile on his face.

“We’re going overseas for a while.” I smiled and did my best to not cry. God only knows where we could be going. I didn’t know how Ryder was doing. For all, I knew he could be dead and this was going to be my life forever. I promise myself that I won’t live like this. I will either run or kill myself. I missed Ryder’s arms so much. It was taking everything in me to not cry. We got to the airport and parked by Draco’s private jet.

I thought I was about to go into a full-blown panic attack. I know this jet has a private bedroom. I know this because I have been on this jet many times. Draco has had his way with me on this jet many times. We exited the car and Draco placed his hand on the small of my back as we headed over to the jet. “You go and make yourself comfortable in the room. We have a long flight ahead of ourselves.” I just nodded at him and headed to the room. I closed the door behind me and prayed he would leave me be.

We took off and about an hour later. Draco came walking into the room. I took a deep breath as he closed the door behind him. “Are you hungry? Do you want breakfast in here or would you like to join us?” I wasn’t really used to him being actually nice.

“I’ll eat out there,” I said and stood up. Draco came dangerously close to me.

“If you be a good girl. I’ll be a nice man.” He said in my ear and then kissed my cheek. I just nodded at him. Refusing to do as I was told would only end badly. I didn’t want that. He took my hand and lead me out of the room. I took a seat next to Miranda. We were all served bacon, eggs, and pancakes. I didn’t realize how hungry I was until I started eating. Once I was done. Draco was lost in his work. Miranda had a tablet and asked if I wanted to watch a movie. I nodded at her and we both got lost in a scary movie.

Miranda ended up falling asleep. Draco stood up and went into the restroom. I had the tablet in my hands and looked around at all his men. No one was paying me any attention. I went to google to see if I could find out any information on Ryder, but there was nothing. I didn’t have an email address. Before I could think of something else to do to reach out. Draco came out of the bathroom. “Do you want to lay down?” He asked me.

“I’m okay, I’d like to finish this movie.” I turned the tablet so he could see what I was watching. He just smiled and nodded at me. Thank god that worked. I ended up watching two more movies. Before Miranda woke back up and they served us lunch. I ate my food and I had to use the restroom. I went into the room because it had a private bathroom. When I came out Draco was sitting on the bed.

“Come and lay down with me.” I could feel my own skin start to crawl.

“Please Draco, I don’t feel very good.”

“Relax Danica, I’m not looking for anything to happen. I know you ran because of the things I was forcing you to do. I still love you and want you by my side, but I won’t force you again. You will learn to love me someday. I just want to sleep and I want you by my side.” I was confused by this new attitude Draco was using. I didn’t know if this was a trick or not. I decided to play along. I walked over to the bed and laid down. Draco turned the tv on and rolled over to his side. Within a few minutes, he was passed out. I watched him sleep and if I had only had a weapon on me. I could easily kill him. Not that it would do me any good. His men on this jet would kill me. All I could do was join him and get some rest.

I woke up to Draco’s hand on my thigh. I opened my eyes and he was still sleeping. I softly removed his hand and he didn’t even move. I slipped myself out of the bed and used the restroom. He was still sleeping when I slipped out of the room. Jonathan met me by the door. “He is still sleeping,” I said to him.

“Go and wake him. He wanted to be woken up for dinner and we only have two hours left until we land.” I nodded at him and turned to go back into the room. Draco was already awake.

“Dinner is ready,” I said and he nodded at me.

“Where were you?”

“I had just woken up. I didn’t want to wake you, but they said you wanted to be woken up.”

“You weren’t gone long?”

“No, I had just stepped out the door.” He nodded again.

“We’re taking dinner in here. Go tell them to serve us in the room.” I walked back out and let Jonathan know.

“Wait Danica, is he behaving?” I nodded at Jonathan and went back into the room. I took a seat in the chair on the side of the bed. I stayed quiet.

“I’ve raised you since you were a small girl. You belong to me.” I sighed. “Why do you want to say, Danica. I won’t hurt you. Speak your mind.”

“I’m your niece.” Draco just smiled.

“That doesn’t matter to me. Your everything I have ever wanted in a woman and once we get settled I want you to be my wife and you will give me a son.” My heart started to beat like crazy in my chest. I knew I was going into a panic attack. “How does that sound?” I couldn’t hold it any longer. The tears fell down my face.

“I will never be your wife.” I hissed out. In a flash, he had me by my neck and forced me to the bed.

“I told you to be a good girl. Do you like it when I’m rough with you? Is that it? Does this turn you on?”

“Get off of me.” I tried to yell out. “Nothing about you turns me on. You make me sick to my stomach. I will never be yours.” The angry on his face scared me, but maybe if I pierced him off enough. He would just kill me, but he released me and stood up.

“I don’t know why you want to start a fight with me. I’m in a good mood and will not let you ruin it.” To say I had a shocked look on my face was a huge understatement. What in the actual fuck was going on? There was a tap at the door and Draco opened it. Our food was brought into the room. Draco smiled when he revealed my favorite dinner. I didn’t know this Draco and had no idea how to handle him. This just might be harder than I thought.
