Chapter four - Prisoner

*Kiara's POV*

I heard loud voices around me. So loud I thought my eardrums would burst. I could smell, hear, feel and to some extent see but I couldn't speak or feel my body. For some reason, I felt paralyzed. Then my brain started to reel and the events of the previous day started to come back to me.
I remembered winning the Decima, going away, hunting and then it hit me. After hunting, I went to sleep in the cave I'd found. I also remembered having the weird feeling I was being watched and followed. Then I remembered being kidnapped and the sharp sting I felt. Shit!, It must have been wolfsbane but not so much to kill me. It was just enough to keep me in my present state of paralysis. But who could've done this to me? And why the hell would they kidnap me? Like, what the hell dude!?
Ughhh...why do I keep getting myself into situations like this!?
Okay...calm down...okay. First, I need to analyse my surrounding. Almost immediately, my nostrils flared as the scent of mulberry spice filled the air. It was a dangerously familiar scent. Alpha Kenneth. I was just about to raise my head when he said "Oh good, the little bitch is up." Something huge struck the back of my head and once again, everything went black.

*Unknown's POV*

I was walking around the garden when the most beautiful scent entered my nostrils. I took a quick detour to the kitchen to see what the chef was up to but nothing was there. Infact, no one was there. This was really strange. With every step I took, the scent became stronger and more pleasant. I couldn't take it anymore so I went back to where I came from.


*Kiara's POV*

Once again, I was awake. Good news, my senses were clearer now so that meant the wolfsbane had left my system. Bad news, I was now chained to a chair. I tried to move but then I felt a sharp sting. Then I realised I was chained with silver. Oh shit.
All of a sudden a large amount of cold water was poured into me. That woke me up completely.

"What the fuck man!?" I asked.

"I'm not a man, stupid" replied the person who'd just doused me with freezing water.

I looked up and saw no other person than Diane. Then I looked around and immediately recognised my surroundings. I was back in the cell where I was tortured. A place that I left only two days ago.

"Wakey, wakey sleepy head. It's time for your facial cleansing." Said a voice next to her. Of course it was him. Just a few inches behind me was her twin brother, Dwayne.

Even after all the torturing he'd giving me, I still took the time to soak up his good looks. He had black shiny hair and warm brown eyes that went extremely well with his almond coloured skin. "Damn, this boy is hottt", I thought to myself. His sister had the same looks but her eyes and hair were a shade lighter than his.
I suppose I wasn't too bad myself with my brown skin, brown hair and amber eyes. Oh, who am I kidding? I'm sexy and I know it😂😂. But honestly, I knew I was a sight to see.

Suddenly, I grew disgusted at myself because of the idiotic thoughts that'd just been going on in my head. Well, minus the part I was thinking about myself. I couldn't believe I was just complementing the enemy. I had to get my head in the right spot.

"Cat got your tongue?", He grinned at me.

"Actually, I was just counting the number of food bits stuck in your teeth. Like dude, have you never heard of dental floss?" I replied him.

"Still rebellious, as always" Diane said.

"Well, Diane we mustn't delay her appointment now. Must me?" Her brother said.

"No, we mustn't"

Then I saw Diane reach for a bucket of water and a piece of clothing was placed onto my face and held tightly at the back of my head. The water was poured into my face and then I was given a second to breathe. Once again, water was poured and this time, it just kept coming and coming. I started to wriggle hard but then the silver burnt my skin so hard the pain was unbearable. I felt like I was drowning in an ocean and the currents were driving me however they pleased.
I felt weak. Too weak. This was it. I was going to die. These were my final moments. I'd watched movies and heard stories of people's lives flashing before their eyes at their moment of death. I waited but nothing came. I became frustrated. First my family, then my mate and now even my life story won't come to me. I felt worthless. Just then, I felt something coming. "This is it", I thought to myself. "My life story" but instead, a huge hand slapped me hard across the face.

"Oh, no, you don't" said a voice. "You've only been here a few hours. It isn't quite time for you to die."

I looked up in annoyance at the man who'd just hit me.

"Yeah, I think we're supposed to die at the same time. Maybe we should share a coffin. We'd be roomies in death." I taunted.

"Do you think I'm here to play with you?" He asked with eyes full of anger.

"I don't know" I shrugged. "Hell, I don't even know who you are."

"I was hoping you would say that. I'm your worst nightmare."

"Oh, for the love of God, don't use that overrated pick up line" I groaned "Just tell me who you are"

He stared coldly at me and even in my current situation, I still took the time to stare back at him.

"My name is Derek. I'm your personal torturer" he smiled.

"Just name would suffice. I don't get why you had to boast about being the devil's advocate."

"A feisty one aren't you? I will enjoy every day of this job."

"And what is your job, exactly?" I questioned. "Because all you're doing is making small talk with me. And honestly, it's getting pretty annoying."

"Oh, Kiara, do you always have to come back here? Asked Alpha Kenneth as he walked into the room with an awkward smirk on his face.

I looked at him as if I was going to puke.

"What are you doing with your face, man!? I asked. I don't know what your wife tells you, but that smirk is the most disgusting I've ever seen."

I was so appalled by him.

He laughed and the whole cell boomed with his laughter.

"As sarcastic and charming as ever" he replied. His face was dark and dangerous. He obviously hated me and I hated him too. He grabbed my neck and squeezed extremely hard. "Very soon, you will learn your place."

He left my neck and exited the room without another word.

Shit is definitely getting real here. I can't wait for y'all to find out everything. You'll be shocked😍😍. But everyone and everything has their time. Until next time
Love you guys🦋♥️
