Chapter 5: What’s Your Name???

Ten minutes later there is a light knock on the door before it swings open. A head peers around the door and I feel my tense body relax at the sight of Hottie’s face. He smiles when he sees me looking at him and he steps in the room and closes the door behind him. I look down to his hands and see that he is holding a plastic lunch tray.

“Hey! I brought you dinner. Or, whatever you want to call it. It’s supposed to be a grilled cheese but the bread is kinda stale and the cheese is supposed to be cheddar but it is starting to look like blue cheese,” he says and laughs at his description. I feel myself smile slightly and he catches it and breaks out into a wide grin. “Oh, and I cooked it so maybe it will taste better. But I might be crazy and it’s going to taste like garbage. I’m already not a good cook and only having rotten stuff doesn’t help.” I can’t help but laugh a little and neither can he.

Hottie steps farther into the room and when I don’t get a worried look on my face he comes and sits down next to me. I tense up at first as I remember that he is a bad guy, not some cute guy at the movies. But he doesn’t sit too close to me or make any move to touch me. Instead, he rests his head against the wall and hands me the tray with the supposed to be sandwich.

I take it and look down at it. He was right, the cheese is covered in mold. I poke the bread and it doesn’t squish under my fingers. I set the tray down next to me and he laughs once next to me. I turn to look at him curiously.

“I don’t think I would eat it either. It doesn’t look very appetizing. I can try and bring you something out of the other kitchen where all the good food is kept if you want. I just have to wait until everyone else is in a room or asleep,” he offers. I nod and smile slightly. He smiles back and when I don’t say anything he puts his head back against the wall and closes his eyes.

“How’s your leg?” I ask in a voice barely louder than a whisper. His eyes open quickly and he sits up and stares me straight in the face. I guess he wasn’t expecting me talk.

“Um-Uh, fine,” he answers in a surprised voice. I nod. “Sorry, I wasn’t expecting you to talk. You’ve only said like five words to me and that was when I asked you a question,” Hottie admits.

“I know,” I whisper. He smiles and turns his whole body so he is facing me.

“You have a nice voice,” he says. I laugh as I thank him. That was a compliment I’ve never gotten before. “What?” He looks curious about why I find that I funny.

I shake my head. “Nothing,” I say with a smile.

“No, tell me. I hate being left out of a joke. Is there something on my face?” He runs his hands all over his face and then goes cross-eyed to look at his nose. I keep laughing but stop when I remind myself that I have to be quiet.

“There’s nothing on your face. I just thought that it was a funny compliment,” I admit.

“Alright then.” Hottie’s eyes drop to the ground and he gets an unsure look on his face. I look at him expecting him to say something but when he doesn’t I cough to end the uncomfortable silence. He still doesn’t say anything.

“So…” I hint quietly. He looks up with a smile on his cute face.

“Um, I was just wondering what your name is. But you probably don’t want to tell me considering where you are and the whole don’t talk to strangers rule,” he explains. I think about it for a minute and way the possibilities of how much I can trust this boy.

“It’s Isabelle. But everyone calls me Bell, Bella, or Izzy.” He looks surprised that I told him but his eyes light up.

“Isabelle. Hmm, that’s a pretty name. It fits you,” Hottie replies. Did he just call me pretty??? No, probably not.

“Thanks. You probably can’t tell me your name since- well since…” I trail off not knowing how to finish my sentence. I mean, how can I say “since you are a kidnapper” without hurting his feelings. I want him to like me so maybe I can get him to help me escape. That’s the only reason I’m talking to him, right???

“I get it. Um, I think I can trust you,” he says. He looks up into my eyes like he is making sure. I nod my head to reassure him. “Uh, it’s Jason.” I look him over and say his name in my head. It fits him.

“Where is that stupid boy? Has anyone seen him? He’s supposed to be watching the one that tried to escape! Can someone find him?” a loud, angry voice yells outside of my door. Jason quickly sits up and looks at the door with a panicked look. I’m sure he recognized the voice just like I do. It’s Baldy and he sounds drunk and angry.

“Shit. I have to go. I’ll try and come bye tonight with something edible,” Jason says in a rushed voice. He smiles at me weakly as he stands up. He slowly opens my door and peers around before hurrying out and closing it behind him.

My heart flutters and I scold myself. I can’t seriously like him!!!! This is all just an act to get him to help!!! Strictly just business!!!! Oh, who am I kidding? I’m starting to like him. This can’t be leading to anything good. I know it.

Hey everyone!!!I'm sorry for such the long wait but like I've said on my other novels, I've been super busy.
