You’re My Dream (Book 1)

All Rights Reserved ©


I feel like I've been trapped here for years. I haven't seen anyone except Ric's brother. He comes in once a day and gives me food. It's not a lot, and I am so hungry. I am trying not to break down, but sometimes I give in and cry.

He hasn't told me why this is happening to me or why I am here. I want to go home. I want to see the twins, and I want to see Ric.

I haven't taken my prenatal vitamins, and I pray that my babies will be ok. I do get to shower, and I have only gotten one set of new clothes. I feel disgusting and dirty. I am beginning to lose hope. I try to sleep as much as I can so I don't lose my sanity.

As I stare at the ceiling, I hear the door open. I don't even bother to sit up or look at who came in. I know it's his brother.

"Well, hello to you too." I hear a woman's voice. I slowly sit up and look at who spoke to me. It doesn't surprise me that it's fuckin Rebecca standing there looking like the fuckin Cheshire Cat.

I still don't speak to her. I stare at her with a bored face, and she scoffs.

"Enjoying your stay?" She is still smiling. I don't give her a reaction. I stare at her with a blank face.

She smirks. "Cat got your tongue?"

I want to grab her by her hair and bash her face in, but I don't. I continue with a blank face.

I can see her face reddening. She expects me to react, and since I haven't, she is losing her cool.

"Al!" She yells. I slightly wince because her voice is so high-pitched. Fuck, she's annoying.

He swings the door opened looking alarmed. He sees her, and he has a look of relief. Maybe he thought I hurt her?

"Get a chair now!" She commands him. He obeys like a perfect lap down and almost runs out of the room. He comes back in less than a minute and sets the chair in front of the bed.

"Sit her in the chair." She barks out another order.

He walks over to me, and I don't bother looking at him. I stare at her.

"Let's go, or I'll drag you over there." His voice is low. He is trying to sound as calm as possible, but I can hear his voice shake a bit.

I don't move a muscle. I continue to stare at her. She raises her brows slightly, and then I feel his hands in my hair.

He grabs a fist full of hair and starts to pull me off of the bed. I can feel my scalp burning. I bite the inside of my cheek, so I don't cry out. I won't give them the satisfaction of knowing that I'm hurting. He grabs my arm and pulls me to my feet. I stand because I don't want to risk falling and him getting a chance to kick me in my stomach. He moves me towards the chair and sits me in it.

Rebecca is smiling the whole time like the psycho she is.

"Now that I have your attention. Would you like to know why you are here?"

I don't respond. I stare at her. My expression is still blank. They aren't getting anything out of me. She scoffs again, and then I feel a sharp pain in my cheek, and my head snaps to the side. She slapped me. If I weren't afraid of hurting my babies, I'd knock her ass out. I slowly turn my head back to her and still give her a blank expression. She scoffs.

"Since you aren't going to speak, I'll tell you what you are going to do." She runs her fingers through her hair. I can see Ric's brother in the corner of my eye. He is just standing there, but I can see that he is wringing his fingers.

"You need to call Ric." She holds out my phone. His brother must have grabbed it when I passed out.

I slightly raise my brows. Why would she want me to call Ric? What is her plan? I don't know where I am, so I can't give him any clues.

I don't take the phone from her, so she scoffs again and unlocks it. I can hear the ringing, and my heart rate increases. She puts it on speaker.

"Hello?" Alaric's voice sounds tired. Gosh, I missed his voice so much. I want to yell that it's me, but I don't.

She covers the phone and glares at me. "If you don't speak to him, I am going to hurt those babies in your stomach." Her voice is harsh. I nod my head.

"Ric, it's me." My voice sounds strained. I haven't spoken since the first day I got here.


"Yeah. Hi." I try not to sound excited, but I am.

"Are you ok?" I can hear him sigh in relief.

"Yeah, I'm fine." I take a deep breath. I don't want to start crying.

"When are you coming home?" I can hear the sadness in his voice.

I look at Rebecca. She mouths out today.

"Today. I'll be home later. Ok?" My voice cracks a bit. Is she really going to let me leave?

"Ok. See you then." He hangs up before I get a chance to respond. My heart breaks a little bit. Doesn't he know that I've been fuckin kidnapped? What is going on?

I look up at Rebecca, and she has a smug look on her face.

"Al is going to give you clean clothes so you can shower. After you get ready, he will take you home. This was fun." She winks at me and walks out.

I take a deep breath and exhale. What was the purpose of all this? I look at Al, and he has a grim look on his face. He walks towards the door but stops in front of me. He looks like he wants to say something to me, but he shakes his head and leaves.

I let out a small sob. Why did all this happen? Why wasn't Ric worried about me? I hope this isn't a sick game, and I can actually go home.

I get up and go to the shower. I turn the water and let the hot water run over my body, and it slightly relaxes me. I sigh. I really hope this is real and they don't kill me.
