Chapter: 39


Without hesitation she opened her mouth and ripped a piece off, she grinned at us exposing her sharp crocodile like teeth as she chewed down. Future me stood there in amazement as she watched this person who looked exactly like us act like a cannibal.

I wrapped my hand around Liam's arm and pulled him closer towards me, "who is that and why is she locked up like an animal?" I whispered.

Without hesitation he answered "that's you from another dimension my love."

"What?" I yelled, getting both their attention on to us. She walked towards us and questioned what was happening but he shrugged and walked away completely ignoring what he had just told me.

Where did this Jennifer come from..?
Was he making a collection of different versions of me…?

He opened up the cage and walked in pulling her into a tight embrace, "I've missed you, I'm sorry for visiting you after such a long time" he said loudly getting both our attention on to him.

"Where did this wench come from? it's enough that I have to deal with this one, now there's another one; what's going on Liam?" She screamed at the top of her lungs.

I would like to know the exact same thing…

He calmly exited the cage and wrapped his arms around us pulling us closer towards him, "now now ladies there's no need to get upset, I love each and every one of you equally" he said with a huge smirk plastered on his face.

A small squeak could be heard and before he knew what was happening the cannibal had her hands wrapped around future me's neck, "hi" she repeated over and over while she squeezed tighter.

Liam stood there in awe for a few seconds before he gently placed his hand on top of her's "if you let her go, you will get a treat, would you like a treat?" He asked in a baby tone causing my insides to twist and turn.

He calmly loosened her grip and opened up the cage gate giving her access, "come-on honey it's time for you to rest" he said as he escorted her inside.
He walked back in and placed his fingers upon his lips causing the two of us to roll our eyes, he wrapped his arms around us and automatically we both shoved him off.

Disgust filled our faces as we stormed out in disbelief from what we had just witnessed, as soon as we stepped out Jen started acting up. She stomped her feet on the ground and let out a loud yelling noise.

"I want my mummy" she cried over and over until Liam scooped her up into his arms, he tilted his head for me to follow him as he walked down the long passageway.

As soon as we reached their room he placed her in bed and caressed her head and hushed her to sleep. He ordered the lights to be switched off and yanked me out of the room like I had done something wrong.

"She always goes into a state when she gets upset" He shouted.
Like always I begged him to send me back to my timeline but he refused and dragged me towards an open door, he shoved me in and slammed the door shut.

An automated voice said doors locked, that's when I freaked out. I banged and shouted continuously, "this is what you get for choosing my son" she shouted from the other side of the door.

I yelled for her to have the door opened but she continued speaking, "he always gets what he wants Jennifer, I had warned you many years ago to stay away from my son but did you listen? No you didn't, you tricked him into loving a simpleton such as yourself" She said.

"Now my poor son is bouncing in and out of dimensions looking for a perfect version of you, aren't you ashamed?" She screamed.

My mind was automatically boggled, how was it my fault that he was psychotic…?

I laid against the door hoping and praying that she would come to her senses and open up the door but she never did, instead she ranted on and on about her precious son.

After what seemed like a lifetime she walked away leaving me stuck within those four walls, I hopped onto the bed and played the waiting game until he walked in pushing a chart accompanied by his horrid mother.

I shuffled myself closer towards the headboard as they walked towards me with conniving grins upon their faces, "how are you my love?" He asked softly as he took a seat beside me.

I rolled my eyes at him and without warning she grabbed onto my arm forcing me down, "What the hell is going on Liam?" I shouted at the top of my lungs.

He licked his lips while his mother lifted up my t-shirt exposing my tummy, "just relax Jen, we have done this hundreds of times, hopefully this time things will be different" he whispered into my ear before he placed his huge hands across my mouth.

She walked around the bed and lifted the tray top revealing a few silver medical tools, I tried screaming out but it was of no use, soft muffled sounds left my lips, "be a brave girl" he whispered as she approached us holding up an iron syringe filled with a yellow liquid.

She placed it against my skin and whispered "there's a much harder way of doing this, but we aren't savages, now are we?"

I screamed into the palm of his hand as the needle pierced into my skin, tears rolled down my cheeks as I watched the man who claimed to love me loosen his grip. "There, there" he said in a slow sloppy tone as he caressed the top of my head.

I tried speaking but no words left my lips, my body was lame and everything moved around me ever so slowly. He scooped me up and my head fell against his toned chest. His heart beat rapidly in his chest as he carried me down the hallway.

Jen stood in the doorway, dressed in a pink frilly ball gown she held on tightly to a stuffed doll. She put her finger to her lips and gave me a sympathetic look as Mrs. O'Brien shoved her into the room slamming the door behind her, "this has to end" she screamed out in frustration.

He turned around and eye-balled her before turning his attention towards me, "you do love me right?" He asked calmly.
Tears rolled down my cheeks, the obvious answer was no, how could I love a monster…
