I stood on the platform, my small form shaking slightly. Many men were in the audience tonight...over a thousand.
The auctioneer started shouting loudly. "A Neko! A young Neko! That last of her kind!"
Bids started flying...50,000...100,000...
But one was more alarming than the others, called out by a man in the shadows. "5 billion."
Everyone stopped and gasped, turning to look at him...But all you could see was the outline of him. He was clearly over 6 feet...and obviously in shape. He stood; ignoring the eyes on him and started walking to the platform, having two of the butlers carry 2 large briefcases.
When they arrived at the stage, they opened the suitcases. God, I had never seen so much money...The auctioneer shoved me to the ground at the man's feet and smirked at me.
A large hand gripped my shoulder and lifted me up...almost lovingly...It was a strong grip...one that one would receive from a parent...or someone they trust. The man escorted me outside, where a long black limousine was waiting for us. My cat ears twitched a bit as I listened to the outside surrounding noises.
"Get in," He said to me.
I quickly got in and tucked my tail under me...closing my eyes, as my body shook from nerves. I could feel his eyes on me..Roaming up and down. Slowly...ever so slowly I opened my eyes to look at his chin. I never met men's eyes...that was something I had learned never to do.
His chin lifted so I knew he was either smiling or smirking. "Look up," He said in a commanding tone.
My body started to shake more as I swallowed nervously and slowly looked up to meet his eyes. They were a deep blue...like the color of the sky before a rainstorm. They had a gentle look in them, one that you would think you could trust...But I knew different.
"Obey men. Never look them in the eye," The man who had kidnapped me 3 years ago had taught me. "You are not worthy to look them in the eye." He said with a slight scoff. "Because they do not care what color your eyes are, or how scared you are."
To prove his point he ordered me to look him in the eye. I trembled as I slowly did as told, gasping when he backhanded me. "That is what will happen when you do not obey...or worse."
I nodded, reaching up to touch my cheek tenderly then dropping my hand to my side. "Yes Sir," I said in the soft tone that I had used since the first day of my capture.
