chapter 80

He stopped midway through because I was a crying, sobbing mess. “Why the hell are you doing this to yourself?” He asked looking down at me as I hid my face. “Why are you still here? What is it that you so badly have to do here that you’re willing to go through this?” He referred to my payment towards him.

I wanted to yell back. I wanted to ask why my only payment had to be giving him sex. I wanted to know if it was because Jennifer sucked at it. I wanted to know why he was letting me stay despite the fact that he thinks I hurt him, despite the fact that he doesn’t know my reason to stay here and despite the fact that I could be planning something. I wanted to know why he cared if he hurt me and stopped rather than take my full payment. I wanted to know if some part of him, deep down, still loved me.

“Is someone forcing you to do this?” He asked, his voice still rough and angry, but with an underlying gentleness to it.

I shook my head no as I hid my face in the pillow. I wanted to go home. This was pointless, he wasn’t ever going to find out. No matter what I did, he wouldn’t get my letter and I couldn’t live like this. Wanting him, loving him, and slowly dying away as I realize that he won’t ever be mine again, that he won’t ever know the truth, that he’ll always hate me.

“Then why are you still here?” He asked and I shook my head again, not wanting him to ask cause I couldn’t answer.

“Why can’t you speak anymore?” He asked and I shrugged my shoulders, then I mouthed, “Maybe Tyler.” He understood that immediately as his eyes burned with anger, but not anger towards Tyler, anger towards me.

“You deserve it.” He spoke in a low voice before he left the room, slamming it shut tight.

I felt anger and frustration surge through me at Dimitri. I was beyond angry that he couldn’t even try to give me a chance. It almost felt like he had never loved or cared about me.

I understood he was hurt from what he thought I did. It was all Tyler’s fault he thought I was a cheater but couldn’t he at least confront me about it instead of causing me this constant pain over and over.

He understood me perfectly when I mentioned Tyler yet he still didn’t bother asking me what exactly happened. He truly didn’t care anymore and that hurt more than anything in the world. It completely broke me.

I had decided then that I wasn’t going to stay here anymore. I didn’t want to give up on Dimitri but he gave me no choice. I couldn’t let him continue to degrade me like this everyday. It was clear he held pure hatred for me and that he’d never give me the chance to explain.

I had had enough.

I collapsed onto the bed as I cried in anger and sadness. I hated Dimitri for everything he did to me, yet a huge part of me still loved and yearned for him, for a man that didn’t exist anymore. The compassionate, loving Dimitri was gone and I’d never get him back ever again. Eventually I had cried myself into exhaustion and fell asleep.

*****

In the middle of the night, I heard a loud commotion causing me to wake up. I heard someone in my room and I pulled the blanket off of me to see who it was but I couldn’t.

Someone grabbed me from behind, putting a blindfold over my eyes and clamped their large hand over my mouth so I couldn’t scream for help. I struggled and struggled but they tied me with a rope so tight I could feel it digging into my skin, causing me pain over the bruises Dimitri had already caused me.

Suddenly they put another cloth over my mouth and I soon passed out.

******

“Shhhh you’re safe Izzie.” Dimitri’s soft and gentle voice comforted me as he held me close to him. “You’re always safe with me. I won’t let anything hurt you.”

I instantly knew this was a dream and I remembered how before I passed out, I was being kidnapped.

“You’re not here with me right now. This is just a dream. In the real world I’m being kidnapped and I’m scared and you hate me because you think I hurt you, because you think I’ve cheated on you.” I exclaim as I start crying and he strokes my back to comfort me.

“Don’t you trust me Izzie? I’m always here for you, no matter what happens or happened.” He said but I shook my head.

“You’re not here for me. You hate me, you hurt me in the real world too.” I said and he frowns down at me. “We aren’t okay Dimitri. We haven’t been with each other for three years thinking we both cheated on each other. But it was Tyler, he made you think I cheated on you.”

“Trust us Izzie, trust me, trust yourself, and trust our love. You know we’ll always be okay and you know, no matter how angry I am at you, no matter what you’ve done, I still always love you and I will always be there for you. Trust the Dimitri in your real world, he’s there for you, you just don’t know it yet.” Dimitri spoke and his words made me cry hard. He was wrong. He didn’t know the Dimitri in the real world. This dream Dimitri was only a figment of my imagination. It didn’t matter what he said. He was wrong. The real Dimitri was terrible to me and I was completely done with him.

“You don’t believe me?” He asked and I shook my head, causing him to sigh.

“Don’t believe in me, that’s okay, but don’t ever stop believing in your real world Dimitri. Never give up on him. He’ll come for you. He’ll save you, just like you saved him from the Shadow.” I held on tight to my dream Dimitri, wanting to feel loved even though I knew this Dimitri was only my imagination.

I pulled away to look at his face. “I love you.” I said but he shook his head.

“You love your Dimitri, your real world Dimitri. Not me. Go find him.” He said as he leaned in and kissed me.

******

I woke up and my arms and legs were free. I relaxed as I noticed there were lips kissing my neck and I figured it must be Dimitri. “Look at this whore, relaxing with us.” I heard an unfamiliar voice say and my eyes immediately jerked open and I screamed as I noticed unfamiliar demon men surrounding me, sneering and laughing at me.

“Oh don’t be scared of us.” One of the men sneered at me. “We just want to play.” He chuckled as my eyes widened in fear. “And besides, your ours to do with as we please. We’ve been given permission from our Master, as long as we don’t kill you.”

I was scared now as I kept backing up, but then I hit a wall and couldn’t go any further as they all laughed at me. I then looked past them and noticed a barred wall, like I was in a jail cell with all these other men. I had no idea what was happening but I was terrified. I didn’t want to know what these men could do to me.

Two of them stepped towards me and roughly grabbed me as I screamed out and started struggling. They called the others and they all held me down as I cried and cried. There was nothing I could do, I couldn’t fight or anything because there were six of them and four of them were holding me down. The other two started kissing me and I started crying.

One kissed down my neck towards my chest while the other was kissing up my legs. I tried struggling but I couldn’t move even an inch. All I could do was lay down like that, hoping they wouldn’t take anything further than a bit of kissing. But the way they were all looking down at me, with hunger and lust in their eyes, I knew they were all going to go for so much more than that.

I could feel one of them pulling down my shirt from the top before attaching their mouth to my chest as I screamed, but my screaming did nothing. I tried so hard to pull away from their tight grip but they were all demons and I was merely a human girl.

Suddenly I heard someone scream my name. “Isabella, are you in here? It’s Jennifer!” I heard Jennifer yell loudly before she screamed in what seemed to be pain. Jennifer was here too? Were they keeping her hostage here too?

I couldn’t think as one of the men started pulling at my pants and I started sobbing. “Please.” I mouthed but they all just laughed at the crying mess I was.

I closed my eyes as they touched and kissed me. I tried to block it all out and thought about Dimitri, feeling a sense of calmness wash over me. I thought about what my dream Dimitri said. He said I had to believe in the real-world Dimitri. That he’d save me, that he’s there for me. I wanted to believe it so badly but I knew that if Dimitri would come for anyone, it’d be his Queen, Jennifer. He could care less about me.

Just as one of the men was about to pull my underwear off, we heard a voice. “That’s enough. The poor girl just woke up.” I heard a voice say as they all pulled away from me. I immediately scrambled back away from them and I pulled my clothes back on, grateful for the interference.

I then looked out and saw a man, a demon, I didn’t recognize, but I could tell was their Master as they liked to say. Then the person I saw beside him, shocked me. My mouth fell wide open when I saw Tyler standing there, watching me with guilt-wide eyes.

I should have known. He was in on all of this from the very start. I should have known as I settled down onto the ground in a little corner. The men left my cell and they locked the door, keeping me in. “Welcome to hell, Isabella.” Their Master spoke in a taunting voice. “You may call me Master.” He said as I quietly watched, shaking in fear. “Look Isabella, I have nothing against you in any way, but sometimes it’s the innocent that have to pay for others mistakes. Sorry Isabella, but you’re going to have to pay instead.”

I had no idea what he was talking about. Who’s mistakes? What mistakes? Why me? I just wanted to get out.

“And Tyler, you’ve done a fine, fine job. Don’t worry, you’ll eventually get your Isabella back but it depends on how long everything takes. Can’t promise though if you’ll get her back alive, it all depends.” He spoke and I felt angry at Tyler and scared for my life. I was not Tyler’s, even if the only choices I had were death or Tyler, I’d choose death over and over again.

“Queen Jennifer is here too so don’t worry, you’re not alone. But you might have to pay more than her. Key word, might.” He said as I hid myself in the corner as far as I could. “I’ll be back when the fun begins. Get ready Isabella.” He grinned maliciously and I could tell I wasn’t going to like it at all.

*****

I was sure a whole day had gone by and no one came to give me food or water. I could feel exhaustion settle in slowly but this was better than being touched by those demon men.

Jennifer tried talking to me but of course, I couldn’t respond. She kept checking to make sure I was still alive and I’d respond by hitting the wall to show her I was fine.

Suddenly I heard voices talking and the fear that hit me was really strong. “Is it really so necessary to have this many people holding onto me?” I heard a very familiar voice. It was Dimitri. I immediately sighed in relief knowing he’d do his best to get us out. But then I realized he’d only get Jennifer out, he didn’t care about me. “You’ve taken all my powers away from me, you’ve drained my strength and you have my arms locked behind my back. Do you really need to hold me?” He sounded really annoyed and angry.

The doors opened and in came Dimitri and a bunch of guards holding him as well as Master. He smirked at me before looking in Jennifer’s direction and smirked towards her too. “Well here are your girls.” Master said as he pointed in our directions. Dimitri was surprised to see me, probably thinking I left home or something, not knowing I had been kidnapped too.

“Take them out.” Master barked towards his guards and two guards went to each cell to take us out.
