When, we stopped I was panting from exhaustion.
“I think we should stay here for the nigh.” Brice said.
I nodded my head in agreement.
“Fine” Justin growled.
“Justin, you have to give us a brake…I want to find the kids as bad as you but we can’t run for a whole week without food.” I snapped. “Well, at least I can’t” I thought.
I felt my knees giving away from exhaustion.I then fell to the ground.
“Emily, are you alright?” Brice was at my side.
“Yeah, I’m fine I just need some space.” I put on a smile.
“No, you are not fine you need some blood.” He said to me.
“No really I’m fine.” I started to get up.“Well, what are we all standing here for? Shouldn’t we get going?”
“Emily, I think you should-” I interrupted Brice.
“No, I’m fine let’s go.” I started to walk.
I heard them fallow behind me.I then started to run, but I didn’t make it too far before I lost all my senses and was on the ground not able to move.
“Emily?” I heard Justin’s worried voice.
I wanted to say I was fine but I wasn’t able to say anything.I was soon in a deep sleep.
“Mommy, come see what we made.” Lily yelled.
“I’m coming.” I yelled down the stairs.
I walked down the stairs to the living room. When I got there I saw them holding up a picture that they made for me.
“It’s lovely you guys, thank you.” I gave them each a kiss on the head.
I then started to feel something warm going down my throat.
END OF DREAM
I started to cough.
“I think she is coming around.” I heard someone say.
“Justin?” I asked.
“No, honey its Brice.” He moved hair off of my face.
“Brice, where’s Justin?” I started to sit up, but all of a sudden I felt someone pushing me back down.
“Emily, just stay lying down.” Brice held me down.
“Where’s Justin?” I asked again.
“He is outside of the cave hon.” He said in a fatherly tone.
“Can you go get him please.” I begged.
“Yes, just one moment.” I heard him walk away.
“Emily, honey.” I heard Justin’s voice.
“Justin” I felt for his face.
I felt his hands go on mine and then he put them on his face I started to feel his face.
“Justin, you need to shave.” I flicked his nose.
I heard him laugh.
“After you wake up all you can say to me is that I need to shave.” He laughed again.
“What can’t I tell a joke, besides I like a man with stubble.” I smiled at him.
I then felt his breathing on my neck.Then the next thing I knew was that he was kissing me. I kissed him back with all my might.When he pulled away we where both gasping for air.
“I love you.” He whispered into my ear.
“I love you too.” I said while I nibbled his ear.
I then felt him playing with my shirt.
“Justin, not hear.” I whispered to him.
“Why Brice isn’t going to be back in a will.” He smiled.
“You didn’t!?” I said to him.
“What all I said was that I wanted some alone time with you for about 2 hours and he said that he would go exploring and let us be alone.” He kissed my neck.
I kissed his forehead. I then felt him going for my shirt again and I let him go farther.I let out a groan of pleasure.
When I woke up I was under a blanket in Justin’s arms.I wiggled my way out of his arms and felt for my clothes.
“Up so soon.” An arm wrapped around my waist.
“It is all ready late in the after noon.” I told him.
“How do you know that it is cloudy?” He sat up next to me.
“Wind feels warm on my skin. That’s how I know what time it is.” I smiled at him.
“Oh, that is interesting.” He said to me.
I just smiled at him.
“Hey, there love birds.” Brice yelled into the cave.
I held the blanket close to my chest.
“Relax he wont come in until we are out or call him in.” Justin said to me.
I nodded my head and started to get dressed. Once I was fully dressed I started to feel my way around the cave. When I thought I was getting close to the back of the cave I tripped over something. I felt for the thing I tripped over.When I found it I thought,
“Oh, it’s just a skull.”
I then let out a scream having just realized that I was holding a skull.
“Emily, are you alright?” Justin was at my side.
“I tripped over a skull.” I squeaked.
I heard him laugh.
“It’s not funny.” I snapped.
“You’re afraid of a skull.” Justin laughed harder.
“Frequently yes.” I told him.
“It is just so funny.Well, anyway lets get you out side to get some fresh air then.” He helped me up.
We then walked out of the cave and into the blistering cold wind. I started to shiver.
“Here” Justin put a coat around my shoulders.
“Thank you.” I snuggled into the coat.
I started to get warmer. Justin then hugged me to his body.
“Do you feel warmer now?” He asked me.
“I feel just right.” I tilted my head up to look at his face.
“Well we should probably get going.” Justin said to me.
“Yeah, I agree.” I told him.
“Brice, ready to go?” Justin yelled into the cave.
“Yep” I heard Brice walk towards us.
Justin then let go of me and took my hand. We all then started to run.
“Justin I smell something.” I yelled over the wind.
All of us stopped to sniff the air.
“Do you smell it to?” I asked him with hope in my voice.
“Yes, I do.” He bent down and kissed me.
“It’s them!” I smiled to him.
“Yes it sure is.” He then took my hand.
“Brice, if you lose site of us fallow our sent.” I told him before we started to run again.
Me and Justin kept running faster and faster. I kept thinking,
“We found them!”
“There going to be coming home.”
All of a sudden Justin stopped.
“Justin why did you stop?” I was exasperated.
“Something doesn’t feel right.” He kept a strong grip on my hand.
I tried to get my hand out of his grip, but it was to strong.
“But Justin the kids are just a couple miles away. We could reach them in no time.” I looked up at him.
“Emily, I want to see them as bad as you do but I have to fallow my gut.” He said to me.
“But” I couldn’t come up with a come back and he knew that.
“We have to be very cautious.” He started to walk at human pace.
“Can we at least run some way so it wont take us all night to get to them?” I asked him.
“Fine” He started to run not letting my hand go.
When he stopped again and the sent was much stronger.
“Can you see them?” I whispered to Justin.
“Yes” He hissed.
“What’s wrong?” I asked him.
“They look a lot different and you will never guess who is talking to them.” He was angry.
“What do you mean they look different? And I’m guessing Andrew is with them.” I looked at him
“You are right about the second part.” He said to me.
“Okay, but how do they look different?” I asked again.
“They look a lot older and they have your eye color.” He look right back at me.
“I know they aren’t blind so there eyes must look silver but with out the cloudiness.” I said to him. “But how old do they look?” I asked him.
“They look about eighteen.” He said to me.
“But, how could they have matured that fast?” I asked him
“Well, we have been searching for them for quit a while.” He put his arm around me.
“Can we go see them?” I asked him.
“Not unless you want Andrew to know we are hear.” He whispered into my ear.
All of a sudden we head a twig brake behind us. We quickly spun around.
“Well, well, well, I see you have found my home.” Andrew said to us.
“Andrew, let us have our kids back.” I hissed at him.
“Okay, only if they remember you.” He snickered. “Kisa, Lily can you come here for a moment?”
“Coming” I heard them yell.
I heard foot steps coming towards us.
“Dad, who are these people?” Lily asked.
“These are friends of mine who came to visit.” He said to them.
I felt my hart sink and I felt like I was going to cry.
“Kisa, Lily don’t you remember us?” I asked in a hoarse voice.
“No sorry Miss.” They both said.
I felt Justin’s arm go around me.He knew that I was not taking this very well.
“Now, kids why don’t you go inside and tell your Uncle Josh that we have company.” He said to them.
I heard them turn away and walk to the house.
“How could you do this?” Justin snapped.
“Do what?” Andrew asked.
“Have our own kids forget us…after everything we have been through to find them.” He hissed.
“Oh, that.” Andrew snickered.
“Come on Emily lets go get our kids.” Justin started walking towards the house.
I didn’t move.
“Emily, come on.” Justin tugged at my hand.
“Why should we they have forgotten us.” I yelled at him.
I felt his hand go off of mine.
“Emily, I know you are hurt but let’s get our family back.” He sounded sad.
I didn’t answer. I then felt Justin pick me up.
“Justin let me down.” I hit his back.
He didn’t answer.
“Now do you honestly think I would just let you waltz right into my house and take my kids away from me?” Andrew was in front of us.
“Your kids.” I snapped at him. “Where you the one who has been searching for them for over nine months?”
Andrew didn’t answer.
“I thought so.” I hissed through clutched teeth.
I started to feel my way around the yard, but I felt a hand go around my throat.
“Now, now, now don’t we have a little temper?” Andrew squeezed tighter.
“Andrew, let my wife go.” I heard Justin running toward us.
I then felt something cold go around my ankles and wrist. I also heard Justin being tackled to the ground.It all happened so fast the next thing I knew I was in a jail cell along with Justin.
“Justin, are you alright?” I asked him from where I was chained.
“Yeah, just some scratches.” He was hoarse.
“Oh, Justin.” I tried to walk towards him but the chains where holding me in place.
“Emily, I’m fine.” He tried to sound tuff.
“How, come we can’t get out of these chains?” I asked him
“Because, it’s made of some unbreakable medal.” He told me.
“There is nothing that is unbreakable.” I told him.
“Well, I can’t get out of it.” He told me.
“And I can’t either, but there has to be away to get out of them.” I put my head down.
I then heard foot steps coming towards us.
“Emily, my lord would like to see you.” A guard said.
“Well tell him I don’t want to see him.” I snapped at him.
“He told me you would say that.” I heard him take something off of his belt.
“What are you doing?” I was worried.
“He said that if you didn’t come with me then I could do this.” I heard something get hit.
“Justin?” I was scared.
“It’s okay Emily, I’m fine.” I heard him get hit again.
“Stop” I yelled.
I heard the guard chuckle.
“I will go with you just please don’t hurt him any more.” I begged.
I heard the guard come towards me. I then felt him unlock the chains. I fell to the ground.
“Come on now get up.” The guard pulled at my hair.
I held in a scream and started to get up. The guard pushed me out the door.
“Come on move.” He started to drag me.
Once I felt the guard’s grip loosen I knew that Andrew was close by.
“My lord, here is the girl.” He dropped me roughly.
“Thank you, now leave.” Andrew said to the guard.
I heard the guard leave.
“Now Em it was so nice for you to join me.” He walked towards me.
“Like I had a chance.” I mumbled.
“What was that.” He hissed.
“Nothing” I looked up.
“Now why don’t you come with me.” He demanded instead of asked.
I stud up.I felt his hand grip my arm tightly.I had a feeling I knew what was going to happen next. And I was right. He ended up bring me to his room.
“Andrew, please don’t.” I pleaded.
“Why, shouldn’t I you still belong to me.” He hissed into my ear.
“But I’m pre-” His hand made contact with my face.
“Don’t you argue with me.” He snapped. “You don’t have my little sister to protect you any more and right now your husband is chained up.”
I looked at the ground.
“I though so.” He smirked.
I then felt his had go under my chin and he pushed it up, then his lips where on mine.
“Dad, where are you?” I heard Kisa yell.
Andrew then pulled away from me.
“I don’t want to be disturbed right now.” He yelled back.
“Oh, okay.” I heard her say and then it went quiet.
I felt Andrew put his arms around my waist.
“Didn’t you miss it when I do this?” Andrew slammed his body to mine.
I didn’t say anything.
It felt like century’s to me when Andrew finely stopped harassing me.
“Now how was that?” He hissed into my ear.
I still didn’t say anything.
“Will you quit giving me the silent treatment?” He snapped.
I didn’t answer.
“Fine have it your way, guard.” He yelled.
“Yes, my lord?” The guard asked.
“Take her back to her cell.” He said.
I quickly gabbed one of the blankets and wrapped it around myself. The guard then came over and grabbed my arm and started to drag me. Once, we where out side of the cell he opened the door and through me in.
“Emily, what happened to you?” Justin sounded ferrous.
“I’m sorry.” I started to cry.
“He did that to you didn’t he?” He asked.
I nodded my head.
“The worst thing is that they both don’t know I’m pregnant.” I thought to myself.
