“Well that was nice.” Natalie said as we headed to the car outside the airport.
“It was kind of Nicolai to get us first class tickets.”
“I like him he’s funny and he clearly loves you.”
“Ha-ha Nicolai doesn’t love anyone not even me.” I said as I opened the door for Natalie and once I was in I began to drive to a hotel where Nicolai had hacked in and “paid” for reservations. We were to stay there as long as we wanted and we could have room service at any time.
“So how much money did Nicolai spent.”
“Oh probably not that much.” I said as I smiled at Natalie knowing that Nicolai wouldn’t want me to tell his secret.
“So what’s the plan?”
“We go to the hotel get the place ready and begin to look around as well as ask.” I said as we drove. Kentucky was really a beautiful place everything seemed urban yet rural at the same time, almost as if they were balancing each other.
We got to the hotel and once were settled down we went searching. That’s all it was for the next two months we searched and searched from the richest areas to the poorest but nowhere had seen her. We went to the store and found out that she had been with a guy. I called Nicolai and told him about the guy, he was going to check out all the males that were there around that time.
There really wasn’t much of an opportunity to be relaxed and free, and all the stress was having an affect on Natalie. I mean two months had passed and there has not been a single lead. I knew Nicolai was just about to break everything with a bat frustrated that he could not help but luckily he was able to calm down.
Anyways my stitches were gone and I had a pretty ugly scar but I wasn’t ashamed because I knew that the scar was what kept me going on. I though that Natalie was okay but I was wrong we had our first real argument one night when she tried to help me feel unstressed while I was trying to make a map.
“Baby why don’t you leave that for a little while and come and lay with me.” Natalie said as she massaged my shoulders and then began to kiss my neck.
“Natalie please stop I’m trying to concentrate.”
“Baby please just a little while.”
“Look Natalie I really need to concentrate.”
“Max we haven’t had time to relax or enjoy some time together.” Natalie said as she pulled away and went to the fridge to get some water.
“How can I relax when my sister is missing, how can you ask me to choose sex over her.” I asked as I stood up.
“You are going mental.”
“Yea well my twin is missing wouldn’t you go mental too?”
“Actually no I wouldn’t I would try my best to find her but I wouldn’t kill myself on the way.” Natalie said here voice beginning to rise, which only caused me to rise my voice as well.
“I’m not killing myself am I?”
“No but still you…”
“Look Natalie you wanted to come and here you are if you can’t deal with it then maybe you should go back to Montana.”
“Maybe I should seeing as you no longer seem to give a fuck about me.”
“Save it Max I’m tired of all your pressure on me, I’m trying to help but I am tired of sitting around and driving everywhere but not doing anything and then we end up sitting back around.”
“Then maybe you should just fucking go!” I screamed in frustration. I mean why couldn’t she understand how important Jennifer is.
“Maybe I should.” Natalie said as she ran out the door grabbing the car keys on her way. I stood there and then through the papers everywhere on the floor. I began to scream and beat up the walls not giving a second thought about the fact that I was still at a hotel until I heard a knock on the door.
“Is everything alright?”
“Yes.” I answered through the door. I went back into or room and put on some shoes and a jacket before going out. I didn’t want to be here when they came back to make sure. I was really beginning to worry because Natalie had been gone for an hour. I was honestly getting tired so I finally called Nicolai.
“Nicolai I need a favor.”
“What is it angel, why do you sound upset?”
“Natalie left me.” I said as I felt the tears begin to fall down my cheeks.
“Look Nico…” I began to exclaim before he cut me off.
“I will kill her for hurting you.” Nicolai screamed against the phone.
“Nicolai it wasn’t her fault.”
“Then whose fault I will kill them.”
“It was mine.”
“Ah what you do angel?” Nicolai asked as he calmed down.
“I told her she should go.”
“Why do that angel you only hurt her.”
“I know Nicolai and I’m trying to fins her but she too the mustang and I don’t know where she is.”
“I have tracker on car I give you directions.”
“Thank you.” I said as I calmed down.
“Okay angel I sent address through text, take care angel. Also stop being a dickhead and love her she is good for you.” Nicolai said before hanging up. I stared at the phone for a while before putting it back in my pocket; Nicolai had never said anything bad to me so I knew I really had made a mistake. I ran to the address he had given me and when it came to view I noticed that it was a strip club.
I walked in and looked around but I couldn’t find anyone there that I knew, not that I knew anyone in Kentucky. After searching for a while I finally found Natalie. I don’t know what surprised me the most or what angered me the most or what hurt the most. I don’t know if it was the fact that Natalie was clearly drunk and rubbing against a man while she kissed him or maybe it was the fact that I had finally found Jennifer dancing against the pole wearing nothing at all. I looked at my sister’s face and clearly looking at her eyes and features she was doing drugs and she had gotten a beating. Well I don’t really know how to describe it, my feelings, besides the fact that all hell broke lose as I headed towards Jennifer first and then Natalie.
