Alex Rider sat on the grass,his girlfriend Sabrina Pleasure sat on his legs. Her long curly hair cascaded down her back. It blew gently in the warm summer's breeze. His hand rested gently on her thigh. She looked down texting back her worried foster mother. She sighed and put her phone into her short's pocket. She turned so she was facing Alex.
"She's worried" she said rolling her eyes.
Alex looked at his girlfriend. He could tell she wanted to go back home. He sighed and pulled her hands into his.
"I love you" he said.
Sabrina giggled and leant forward meeting Alex halfway. She kissed him. Alex put his hands on her head. His fingers stroking her hair. She got up pulling Alex up after her. They took hands and walked back over the grass towards the housing scheme where Sabrina lived with her foster parents. Walking up the street the heat was showing. People were out sunbathing,doing their washing. The air was filled with children playing and shouting to one another. Before she went into the house Alex kissed her on the cheek. She giggled and went inside and closed the door.
"Sir" a gruff voice said.
Mr Point picked up the black mobile sitting on his desk. He put it to his ear.
"What have you got?" he barked.
"The Rider brat,he seems to have a girlfriend" the voice said.
Mr Point put down the phone. Alex Rider was covered from every angle. Jack his carer kept him safe when he was home. He was protected at School and MI6 were constantly watching the young spy. This girl whoever she is. She could prove useful. His phone beeped and he looked at the photo in front of him. There was two a picture of Alex and this girl kissing,and another of them walking across a park. The girl was beautiful. She was slender and slightly tanned. Her hair was long and thick. He looked Alex. The boy loved her. The adoration in his eyes made him sick. He picked up the black smart phone that lay on the table in front of him.
"Find her" he said.
24 hours later.
Sabrina stood in her bedroom getting dressed. She slipped her school tie on. She sighed thinking about Alex. She got dressed absentmindedly. She looked out the window and saw someone walking up the street. For a warm day he was dressed pretty weird. He had on all black including a pair of black sunglasses. He looked up at Sabrina and she ducked quickly. Her back crashing against the wall as she sat. She was breathing hard and when she pulled herself back up the man was gone. She carried on getting dressed. She went downstairs and started to eat breakfast with her foster parents. As she eat her way through a bowel of cereal and listened to her father drown on about forgot the man she had seen this morning. Soon the doorbell rang and Alex came into the kitchen. Sabrina smiled and stood up,she took her blazer from her peg and walked out of the door.
"Sabrina!" her mother shouted
"Yes?" Sabrina answered turning around.
"Your father and I will be late out tonight,so please don't wait up,just go to bed" She said.
Sabrina nodded and turned to walk away
"Just one more thing,please be careful" Shouted her mother closing the door.
Sabrina laughed and turned to Alex
"Nothing ever exciting goes on around here anyway" she said.
Her and Alex joined hands and walked on towards school. Sabrina became quiet and just listened to Alex talking about MI6 and school. The heat shone down. Her blazer becoming hot in her hands.
"Sab?" Alex asked.
Sabrina turned and looked at Alex. Tears watered her eyelids. As the rolled down he checks Alex hugged her close.
"Hey" he said hugging her tightly
"What's the matter?" he asked.
"I think somebody's following me" Sabrina whispered.
"What?" replied Alex.
Sabrina told him about the man at her window this morning and how scared she was. Alex hugged her and told her,it would be okay. They reached school and Alex gave her kiss and left her. She stood waiting for her friends. She cheered up quickly forgetting all about her problems.
Mr Point sat in his office watching his phone. He drummed his fingers on the black surface of the lit up and started to ring the vibrations shaking the table. He watched it for a moment before picking it up.
"Talk" he said.
"Sir,the girl is called Sabrina,that's all we know,and tonight she will be home alone"
Mr Point smiled and put down the phone. Ending the call. He called his secrecy and told her to arrange a team to bring him Sabrina,and quietly if they could help it.
Sabrina was finished school and stood at the gate waiting for Alex. Her friends had already left. So she was waiting alone. Soon Alex came walking across the field. He had already took off his blazer and it was hanging out of his bag. His top had been undone and his tie was losley around his neck. She smiled and waited for him to come over.
Alex looked at Sabrina. She was still perfect. Her hair and makeup done with not a bit out of place. She held her blazer in one hand and a big folder in the other. He smiled at her and walked away from his friends. Remarking he would see them tomorrow. He walked over and kissed her. Sabrina smiled and put her folder in her bag. Giving Alex her free hand. As the walked home. Sabrina was talking like usual filling Alex in on the gossip from school. She started a rant on some teacher and seemed to be getting right into it. Alex looked at her . She seemed to have forgot about this morning and this pleased Alex. When they reached Sabrina's street. He changed the conversation.
"Sab?" he asked.
"Yes Alex?" she replied.
"Will you be okay tonight,being alone and all?" he asked nervously.
"Sure,I will!" Sabrina laughed. She stopped and gave Alex a hug.
"You worry to much" she said.
She walked up to her front door and opened the door waving to Alex as he walked up the street. She locked the door behind her and went upstairs.
Alex went in the front door. The bang brought Jack to the hall.
"Hello" she smiled. Her American accent still thick even though she had lived in London for years.
"Hello Jack!" Alex said smiling.
He went into the sitting room and sat down. He opened up his bag and pulled out his course work. Jack came in and handed him a bowl of noddles and some form of sauce. Alex smiled his thanks and continued to work on his projects. He sat there for a few he was finished. He yawned loudly and looked at the clock. It was eight o'clock. He checked his phone,to check if there were any messages from Sabrina when he saw there were none. He collected his stuff and went upstairs. When he was halfway up Jack came to the bottom of the stairs.
"I'm just going out for a while,is that okay?" Alex smiled and nodded.
He continued to walk up when he heard Jack lock the door. He went into his bedroom dumping his stuff. He grabbed a towel and went into the bathroom. He had a shower and then returned to his bedroom. He changed into other clothes and sat on his bed. He pulled out his phone and went to text Sabrina. He felt really tired and closed his eyes falling asleep. His phone falling out of his hand onto the bed.
Sabrina came out of the bathroom. She sat down on her floor and started to dry her long hair. She sat there tapping her foot to the rhyme of music she could hear over the hairdryer. She turned it off and combed it through. She stood up and left her room taking her phone with her. She walked downstairs and went into the kitchen. She took milk out of the fridge and poured some into a glass. She started to drink it and pressed a button on her phone, it lit up displaying a photo of her and Alex acting like idiots. She smiled at the memory. Then a loud crash brought her senses back. She looked out of the kitchen and down the hall. The front door had shadows at it. She shook with fear. Had she locked the door. She remembered when she came in she had turned the lock. Then behind her,she heard a smash from the back hall. Someone was trying to get in. She turned to leave the room. When the front door burst open. Sabrina screamed and ran. She ran down the hall and up the stairs. She looked left at the men and noticed a red scorpion on his house was long and rather big. They'd expect her to go into her room. She took a left and ran into her parents room. She jumped into the closet closing the door behind her. She took her phone and phoned Alex. A few seconds later and a voice came active.
"Hello?" Alex said sleepily.
"Alex help me" Sabrina begged in a whisper.
"Sab! what's wrong?" Alex's voice now full of worry.
"They're in my house!" he whispered.
"Who?" Alex asked.
"I don't know,they have a scorpion on their jackets."
Alex was quiet.
"Sabrina,you need to get out of there,now!" Alex said.
"I can't!" Sabrina said.
"They're in the house."
"Climb out of the window,I'm coming to get you!"
Sabrina opened the door of the closet and looked around. The room was empty. She got out and walked across the carpet. The noise from downstairs hadn't stopped the constant smashing of things in her house.
"Alex" she whispered into the phone
"I'm really scared".
She opened the window and put her hand on the edge. The door burst open and they burst guns trained on Sabrina. She screamed and dropped her phone. She walked backwards until her back met the wall. Two of them grabbed her and started to drag her out of the room.
"Alex" she shouted.
Her phone lay on the floor. Alex's name still on the caller ID. She fought them,but they were too dragged her out the house and up to a tall man dressed all in black too,apart from the logo on his jacket. He wasn't wearing sunglasses either. He looked empty and unforgiving. She was shoved at his feet.
"Sabrina Pleasure?" he asked.
"Yes" she replied.
He smiled and walked away.
Alex came into the street. Honestly how do people miss this kind of thing. As he ran down the street. He saw Sabrina sitting in the middle of her garden. She wasn't hurt just scared. Alex drew his gun from his back pocket and turned off the safety. He cocked the gun and ran up to the men. One smiled.
"Rider" one said.
"Give her back" Alex spat pointing his gun at the man.
"We need her,but I'm sure she'll be fine"
Sabrina looked up at Alex. Silver tears ran down her face. He looked at her he wanted to hold her close. To tell her she would be okay.
"Alex!,watch out!" she shouted.
Alex went to turn when the butt of someones gun met the back of his head. He crumpled to the ground. Sabrina was the last thing that entered his head before he passed out,the world swimming to black.
