I was kidnapped as a child and I didn't even know it.

Thriller / Horror

Kidnap.

I have currently finished high school, finishing 4th in my class. I strive for the best I can do and I am always proud of my accomplishments. I am scheduled to leave for college in 3 weeks, so I began to pack.

I started by going to my childhood house, to get any old belongings I still had any sentimental attachment to. I started by searching through my closet, and gradually moved over to my bed. I shoved my hand underneath. Nothing but dusty old board games, and chewed up action figures, courtesy of my dog.

Just as I was about to shift over to my dresser, I felt something land on my hand. I felt around blindly, until I finally got a hold of it. It revealed itself to be an old gem of my childhood I instantly recognized. My old diary. Now I understand for a guy, a diary is kind of girly, but I was only about 7, and the whole idea seemed really cool back then.

It was pocket sized, and I remember taking it everywhere I went. The memories came flowing back to me as I flipped through each, old dusty book page.

It was average 7 year old stuff: I got to go to the treasure box today, I kicked the farthest in kickball, normal stuff like that. It all seemed normal until after I recorded that my mom had gotten a new job, and wasn’t going to be home as much. I had to stay with friends or nearby relatives. With my dad gone, my mom had been working harder than ever to keep us off the street.

Here are the entries when things began to get weird.

March 3rd, 2003 Mom said she can’t pick me up from school tomorrow. She said our neighbor, Mr. Johnson, would be picking me up instead. I hope he is cool.

March 4th, 2003 Mr. Johnson is picking me up from school today. I am supposed to stay at his house until mommy gets home later. I hope he has fun games to play.

March 4th, Entry 2 School today was fun! I got to go to the treasure box with the tickets I had gotten over the week. I was able to show off the starter phone my mom had gotten me for emergencies. She had to work a lot more now, with daddy gone, and she said this way we could always talk to each other. I am sitting in the car loop waiting for Mr. Johnson right now. I hope he is nice.

March 4th Entry 3 Mr. Johnson just picked me up. I climbed into the backseat. He looks like a pretty nice man. Mommy told me to call her once I reached Mr. Johnson’s house. He asked me how my day was, and I told him everything that happened. He seemed happy. March 4th, 4th entry

Mr. Johnson just stopped at the gas station. I’m waiting in the car for him. He said he won’t be long.

March 4th, 5th entry Me and Mr. Johnson have been singing songs. I had not gotten to Mr. Johnson’s house yet, but decided to call mommy to say how much fun I was having. She answered in high spirits, happy to hear from me. I told her everything and she said that it sounded wonderful. She asked to talk to Mr. Johnson. I gave him the phone. As they talked, Mr. Johnson remained calm, but on the other end I could hear my mother’s screams. It sounded like she was screaming something about Mr. Johnson, but I didn’t fully hear because Mr. Johnson closed my flip phone, and swiftly handed it back to me. Why was my mom screaming like that? And why did we just drive past my neighborhood?

That is the last entry I can manage to read for now. The dust from flipping each page is really making my allergies react. I will post more as I read more. Until next time.

Shweta Somwanshi: I just chose to read this out of nowhere and now I can't stop. Hats off to the author who made the reader swoon away with words so beautifully! I loved how I was able to imagine everything so explicitly because the writing was simple and easily comprehensive with a touch of complexity somewhere b...

briggy1998: I really enjoyed the book, even though I had to skip a few lines, because at times it could get a bit disturbing🙆🏻😅What I would have liked is if you could have given a bit more insight into jack's and fiona's relationship, especially the epilogue was a bit short 😬Other than that an amazing story!

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

rachelrainford6: This probably has to be one of the best books I've read on here. I read it quite quickly and I'll have to say the story took a turn towards the end that I did not see coming. The topic discussed in this book such as life really gave me a new insight and I realize that it is taken for granted.

Emperor2000: I joined Inkitt and downloaded this book following a friend who has been on here sometime recommending it. After they spoke about it a bit, I thought why not give it a go. Initially I only expected to read a few chapters, as I have little time to spend reading (not as much as I like). However I c...

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

nikole carr: After starting and stopping several books tonight, this book caught my attention from the very beginning and i stayed up until 6 a.m. to finish reading. The plot has many twists and the sexual scenes keep it interesting, too. im a florida native so the Caribbean location is fun to read about. th...

Kayresia A. Bass: Loved it. Author did some insane research to bring this story to life. A little short for my taste, but an awesome story nonetheless. A few missing periods, and a few missing ending quotation marks, but not enough to take away from the story.Keep going. Add more detail to your future stories and ...

Gayle Gunderson Boyce: I loved the book. Couldn't stop reading it. The story was good with a strong build up of suspense and sense of urgency to catch the killer. All clues pointed to Talbot yet enough things didn't add up to keep us looking and thinking. Jack Creed is a likeable character with lots of gut experience. ...

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well.

Kaitlyn Bier: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

Marimar Amieva: I just can't believe the story! I absolutely loved it, all of it. The characters and their chemistry between them, and the fact that they are relatable.
