Izzy aka Anna’s POV,

Could that really have been my brother? I recognize Aurora, and I knew she was with Nick. Only why were they here? Could they have been looking for me? Why? Dose Nick want to hurt me? I didn’t see Ryder or my mother. I was so confused and I had missed them so much. I never believed that Nick knew what had happened to me. I never believed that Nick wanted to hurt me but at the same time. I didn’t really know much and now I was confused.

I got back home and I wanted to tell my uncle what I had seen, but for some reason. I walked past his office and went straight to my bedroom. Sebastian was working and I was alone. I wasn’t even going to tell him what I had seen. I knew with this type of information. He would go right to my uncle. I honestly had no idea why I wasn’t doing the same thing. I almost had a feeling of wanting to go looking for Nick myself. I mean I wasn’t a helpless little girl. I knew how to fight and protect myself. The only person I feared was Ryder. Only what if Nick was with Ryder. That thought scared me. I didn’t think any of them even noticed me. My friends didn’t even question why I wanted to leave the shopping center so fast. I didn’t know what I would have done if I had been noticed.

“Babe, why are you so quiet tonight?” Sebastian asked me. I wasn’t meaning to be. I sat on the edge of the bed. Just thinking about everything.

“Just a lot on my mind.”

“Anything I can help with?” I turned to look at him. He laid back on the headboard of the bed. Sebastian was the kind of fine that made you speechless. The kind of man that would have you rethink your whole life. I smiled and bit my lip.

“Oh, I know ways you can help me alright.” He smiled and reached out and pulled me to him. I straddled him and his hands went to my hips.

“How can I help you, baby?”

“In all kinds of ways.” His grip on my hips got tighter.

“I can’t help you unless you tell me what you want?” Oh, so he wants to play. I can play his games.

“Take my shirt off.” He smiled and reached out to unbutton my blouse. My eyes stayed on his. My blouse fell to the ground and Sebastian crossed his arms. Playing hardball. “Kiss me here.” I pointed to the tops of my breast still tucked perfectly inside my pink bra. He licked his lips and started kissing and licking where I told him to. “Remove my bra.” He snickered and my bra came off. His hands took hold of my breasts. His lips and tongue started to play with my nipples. I let out little moans of appreciation. Sebastian only liked to play this game for a minute or so.

Sebastian flipped me over and hovered above me. “What now?” He asked.

“Whatever you want to do to me.” He smiled big and pulled my thong to the side and slipped inside of me. I ran my fingers down his back. He holds my hair tightly in place. I reach back and push on the headboard so my head doesn’t hit it. “Harder Sebastian.” My eyes roll into the back of my head. “Don’t stop.”’

“God, I love your body.” I smiled as I wrapped my arms around his body. Over the next hour, Sebastian took me to Ecstasy. “Now you want to tell me what’s on your mind?” Damnit I was hoping he would let it go.

“How about once I know for sure. I’ll let you know.” He nodded at me.

“Fair enough, but your okay right?” I nodded at him. I rolled over feeling tired. I pulled the blankets up and fell to sleep. My dreams were filled with Nick and mom. Sebastian and I were awoken by banging sounds. Sebastian turned and looked at me. He placed his finger to his lips to keep quiet. He grabbed his gun and started to head towards our bedroom door. My fear hit me hard. What if they did see me? What if they were here for me. I fell back against the wall and grabbed my gun from my nightstand. Sebastian opened the door and we saw our men running around. My uncle approached Sebastian and they said a few words. Sebastian nodded at him and came back into the bedroom closing the door behind me. “Pack a bag we have to leave.”

“Leave? Why?” Sebastian was running around the room tossing things into bags. “Sebastian!” I snapped. He came over to my side and pulled me into his arms.

“Ryder Dankworth knows you are alive and is on his way for you. He might even already be here.” My eyes went wide and I tried to stand up. “Pack what you need.” I nodded my head at him. I started to grab my things and I still keep my mouth shut. I don’t know why but something inside of me was screaming that something wasn’t right. I just didn’t know what it was.

An hour late I sat quietly on a jet just staring out the window. I looked over and Sebastian and my uncle were lost in conversation. My brain was all over the place. First of all, I know Ryder. If Nick was here the that must of meant Ryder was here, but all I saw was Aurora, Nick, and I believe Ethan. Where was all the backup? Where were all the men to cause a war? It’s been over seven years. Why has it taken so long to find me if they wanted me back so bad? Even if it was just to kill me? I felt, at that moment that maybe I was living some sort of lie. I also decided that I would play my role until I knew what was happening. Maybe it was time for me to seek out my brother on my own?

I had no idea what Nick knew about everything. As far as I knew he has been lied to all this time. Maybe he thinks I’m dead. God only knows what has been told to him. I kept my eyes on my uncle and Sebastian. Please let what has been told me be the truth. I don’t know what I will do if I found out they have been lying to me as well. It would crush me all over again. Please not Sebastian. If anything is going on. Please don’t let it be Sebastian. He is my entire world. A tear came to my eye.

Sebastian got up and started to make his way towards me. I wiped my eyes. I didn’t want anyone to know I was upset. He took the seat next to me and wrap this arms around me. “I will always protect you. Even with my own life. I won’t let anyone hurt you.” I looked into his eyes and they looked so sincere.

“I know you will.”

“I love you. I know all this scares you and makes you sad, but I’ll hold you in my arms and keep you safe and do my best to keep you happy.”

“I love you too,” I said and laid my head on his shoulder. I couldn’t help my own tears that started to fall, but I still did a good job of hiding them.

“Izzy, I want to marry you. As soon as we get to wherever we’re going. Tell me you will marry me. Even if we have to do it alone and have a Big celebration later?” Why was he wanting to rush this? All of this that is going on has me questioning everything. Even the man that I love. “Izzy?” Maybe I should try to prolong this. Why did he want it so bad? Fuck, I felt like I was on some mental roller coaster. More than likely I was probably overreacting. “I’m sorry baby, I know you want a big wedding. I just want to be your husband.”

“It’s okay Sebastian, we can do whatever you want.” He smiled and kissed the top of my head.

“Do you want to go lay down in the back cabin? I know you must be tired?”

“Do you know where we are going?”

“Your uncle hasn’t said yet. Come on baby, I will lay with you.” I nodded at him and we got up. I followed him into the cabin. I laid down on the bed on my stomach. Sebastian came over to me and started to run my back. He pulled my shirt off and undid my bra. His strong hands rubbed my back and put me to sleep like they always do.
