Taken Again

I opened my eyes and had no idea where I was. My mind was fuzzy and I couldn’t seem to remember much. I tried to sit up and that didn’t work out. “You shouldn’t try and move.” I heard a female voice say. I didn’t recognize the red-headed woman that walked over to me. “Logan right? I’m Maggie Rose. I’m an old friend of Collins. I’m also a registered nurse.”

“Hi, can you tell me what happened?” I asked her.

“You don’t remember?” I just shook my head at her. “Why don’t I get Collin for you?” I nodded my head at her as I watched as she left the room.

“Hey man, how are you feeling?” I heard Collin say as he walked into the room.

“What’s going on man, why is my head so fuzzy?”

“Well you had a bullet in your hip and when you got out of the car you started acting funny and I didn’t catch you in time. You hit the ground smacking your head on the side of the car. You lost a lot of blood.” As Collin was explaining to me what had happened everything came rushing back to me and I realized Mia was taken. I sat up fast and hollered out in pain. “Whoa man,” Collin said as he came to my side.

“I have to find Mia,” I said and Collin turned and looked to the ground. “What is it, Collin?” I asked him.

“McGreggor sent a message to your phone.”

“What? How in the hell did he do that? I have a new burner phone?”

“Look man I don’t know, but James doesn’t have her, McGreggor dose.”

“Give me my phone.” Collin walked out of the room and returned with my phone.

“Listen, you are really hurt and I don’t want you to do anything stupid.”

“Just give me my fucking phone.” Collin held it up in the air.

“Promise me.” I gave him a dirty look.

“Fine.” Collin handed me my phone. McGreggor sent a large text. Basically telling me how much I fucked up when I betrayed him. Then he gave me an ultimatum. If I wanted nothing to happen to Mia. I would show myself to him. I knew it was a trap and I would more then likely die if I showed myself. I just didn’t know what else to do at this moment. He gave me seventy-two hours to reply. Then he sent me a picture of Mia, with James sitting next to her. She looked so scared. My heart hurt but the anger was worse. I took a deep breath and sent McGreggor a text. Simply saying, Keep James away from her and I’ll come to you, but you have to let her go if I show my face. I hit send and laid back in the bed. My head fucking killed.

Mia’s POV,

I sat in his office, scared out of my mind. I didn’t know what was going on and all I wanted was Logan. James wasn’t leaving my side. I was scared to death of him. Mr. McGreggor was actually not being so bad. I learned that he was the boss. “Steven, I want you to show Mia here, to her room. I heard from Logan. She is safe for the night.” My heart skipped a beat when I heard Logan was okay. Steven got up and walked over to me.

“I can take her,” James said standing up.

“I bet you can, but this one is hands-off for you,” McGreggor said. I looked over at Steven and walked to his side. I followed him out of the office. The place was huge and I followed Steven down a long hallway.

“Logan is a good guy. I’m sure he will do what he can to get you back.” I looked over at him.

“Excuse me for saying this, but you don’t really seem to belong here.” He laughed a little.

“You’re very wrong about that. Logan is the one who doesn’t belong here.” I looked at Steven funny. We stopped in front of the door. He opened it and I walked in. The room was nice. I turned to face Steven before he locked me in. “Don’t worry James will stay away from you now that McGreggor told him to. Your safe for the night.” I thanked him and then asked him a question.

“Do you guys know where my family is?” Steven took a deep breath.

“We haven’t found them yet, but Mia your father is in a lot of trouble. I don’t know what’s going to happen to him once McGreggor finds him.” I took a deep breath as Steven closed the door and I heard him lock it. I ran over to the bed and flung myself on it. I laid there and just cried. This was all a nightmare and Logan was probably going to be killed over me. I felt completely helpless. I had no way to get out of here. Even if I tried, James would be the one to find me and god only knows what would happen to me then. After laying here and feeling sorry for myself for about an hour. I got up and walked into the bathroom. I turned and looked at myself in the mirror. I looked all beaten up and I hurt. I turned and started the shower. There was a large robe hanging up. I grabbed that and set it next to the shower. I walked back out in the room. Hoping to find some clothing.

I found a simple white tee shirt and a pair of man’s boxers. They were all clean so that was going to have to do. I jumped into the shower and as I cleaned myself I started to cry again. I don’t know how everything had turned to shit so fast. Here I was about to have a great summer with my family before I headed off to college, and now I was sleeping and falling for the man that kidnapped me. I have been kidnaped again from my original kidnapper, although I don’t think they was would be as caring as Logan. The feeling of helplessness just took over. I stopped the shower and grabbed the robe. I found a brush in the draw and brushed out my hair. “Aw, I like it when they are all fresh and clean.” I heard his sick voice and when I turned to look. He grabbed me and flung me to the floor. I screamed out and he placed his hand around my mouth and his other hand around my throat. He then picked me up again and I was able to bite down on his finger.

He yelled out in pain and hit me across the face. He grabbed me again as I screamed out as loud as I could. That’s when he full-on punched me in the face. The sounds in the room got muffled as I fell down on the bed. I watched him climb on top of me. Then I heard the sound of a bullet go off and James fell down on top of me. I cried out as I tried to push James off of me. That’s when I saw Steven with a gun in his hand and McGreggor behind him. Steven put his gun down and came rushing to my side. He picked me up and took me out of the room. He moved me to a different room and laid me on the bed. He covered me up and left. I started to cry and he came rushing back into the room. “I’m sorry, We don’t tolerate rape,” Steven said and still I was scared. “I promise you, Mia, I won’t hurt you.” He said as he started to clean up my face. I looked over at the door as McGreggor walked in.

“My apologizes, nothing like that will happen to you again.” He nodded at me and left the room. I looked back at Steven.

“Is Logan okay?” I asked him.

“For now, but I don’t know what will happen if he shows his face. Logan and I go way back. He is a good man and doesn’t need to be mixed up in all of this.”

“Then why is he?”

“He has lost his way and felt this was the only thing to turn to. I can’t help him if he comes here. I’m guessing something has happened between the two of you?” I just nodded my head and the tears fell down my face again. “I’m really sorry you have gotten mixed up with all of this. Your father is a bad man, I hate telling you that, but this is all his fault.” I just looked at him.

“Do you know the whole story? I don’t think Logan did.” He sighed. I do and I will tell you if you want to really know?”

“I think I have the right to know why I’m here Steven.” He took a deep breath and started to tell me what my father has been doing.
