Chapter Cinque

I was shoved into a tinted SUV, typical, I know. What wasn't typical was that I wasn't blindfolded, other than the gun pressed against my rib, I was totally fine!

After what felt like hours but were probably just minutes, the vehicle came to a halt. 'Boss' got out of the car, leaving the two men and I, one sitting beside me, the other smoking a cigarette in the driver seat.

"You are actually beautiful" The man next to me commented, looking at my lips, making me twist my face in a disgusted scowl. He looked to be only 2 or 3 years older than me. He rubbed his stubble thoughtfully and added, "He said you were anyway" He chuckled uncomfortably, I simply stared at him, expressionless.

"I'm Sam, by the way" he smiled, "if you wanted to know..."

"Will knowing your name mean I get to leave?" I retorted, raising an eyebrow.

"Well...no..." he shrugged. "But nothing-"

"Stop talking to her!" The other henchman ordered.

I sighed, wondering how life would get back to normal, it wasn't even a question of 'when'. I'd just lost a close friend and I felt hopeless.

Maybe this is what I've been living for, these moments, where everything goes to shit and nothing makes sense.

'Boss' abruptly opened the door, slamming it shut as he sat. Someone's angry, the least they can do is allow me to grieve in peace, I thought to myself, closing my eyes and seeing Hanks lifeless body, I gulped in a sob, covering my mouth.

I couldn't control myself anymore, the tears came pouring down my face. I covered my face and backed up in the corner of the car, crying my heart out.

The engine roared to life and the car started moving. The drive lasted a few minutes until we came to another stop only this time, all three of them got out of the car.

I turned to the window and gasped, we were outside my fathers ice-cream shop!

"Get out!", the boss demanded, yanking the car door open and grabbing me by the wrist.

"Why are we here?.." I asked licking my now dry lips.

"Oh don't worry sweetie, you'll know soon enough" 'Boss' smirked, he yanked my arm and pulled me out of the car. I was so confused. Was this a random ice-cream run? was someone here a diabetic or something?...

The store was lit up even though it was well past closing time. Other than the black SUV, there were no other cars in the parking lot. 'Sam' tapped at the glass door with his gun and that's when my heart dropped.

My dad shakily unlocked the door, his eyes immediately landed on me. I looked at him, eyes full of tears, I looked at him for answers. Answers I knew I wouldn't like.

"Please, this isn't necessary..." My father begged as the strange men tied me up in a chair.

"It is Jack, it really is"
