i sat up, knowing something wasn't right. i crawled out of bed and went to the living room. i grabbed the phone off the nightstand as i went.
"now leah, you don't want to call anyone do you?" a deep voice said from behind me, i screamed and accidently dropped the phone.
i looked over and saw a man, actually more of a boy, holding aiden. i tried to make out his face but couldn't in the dark, though his voice sounded very familiar, in the panic, i couldnt place it.
he pulled out a knife and said, "you will do what i tell you to and the kid won't get hurt."
i stared at him.
"okay now i want you to grab some diapers and clothes for the kid and some stuff for yourself as well. then you can write a note so that anyone coming here will think you took off on your own. got that?" he pointed the knife at aidens throat and i immediatly nodded and went to grab some things.
when i was done i went back into the living room, and mustering up some courage said, "give me back my baby"
he laughed and said, "oh now honey, thats not fair, its my baby too."
