Chapter 6: What Is Wrong With Me???

Jason (a.k.a Hottie)

I hurry to the girl’s room as quickly as I can. I have to get there before any body sees me wondering around. The whole time I walk to this girl’s room I’m scolding myself.

What the heck am I thinking!?!? I can’t fall for this girl!!! It’s just another girl in the business! I’m the bad guy!!! I have to keep up that role! Or else- or else- or else, let’s just say that something not so good is going to happen to me.

I swing the girl’s door open without even knocking. Normally, I try to at least be somewhat considerate of the all the girls’ privacy but at the moment I’m kinda out of it.

I storm into the room and slam the door behind me. The brunette haired girl, who looks to be about nine years old (why are they going after such young girls?), cowers in the corner with wide, scared eyes.

“Hi,” I mutter and sink into the corner on the other side of the room for her. I pull my knees up to my chest and rub my face with my hands.

Why am I falling so hard for this one girl? I’ve been around girls all my life. Especially pretty ones. Why do I all of the sudden feel so attracted to this one particular girl??? This one girl named Isabelle.

Bell. Pretty, pretty Bell.

What the hell am I thinking?!? I can’t think like this! I can’t like one of these girls! If any of the other guys ever found out that I was treating her differently, they’d kill me!

I feel eyes burning wholes in my head so I look up and the young brunette is staring at me suspiciously. I give her a weak smile. “How are you?” I ask in gloomy voice. Her eyes widen and she seems surprised that I’m being nice to her. “You don’t have to answer. Just trying to start a conversation.” She looks away and even lies down on the hard mattress next to me. She closes her eyes and soon I hear her snoring quietly. I’m sure that this is the first time she’s gotten any sleep since she got her.

I go back to my own thoughts. I’ve never told any of these girls my real name. Sure, I’ve talk to them and made them feel a little more comfortable and if they asked me my name I’d just give them a fake name. Usually I’d just say Jake because that’s close enough to my real name. But I actually told Bell my real name.

I hate my name. Jason. Jason the teenager who helps old men kidnap girls so they can rape them. Yeah, that’s just great. This is exactly where I’ve always seen myself going in life.

Not. When I was younger I always saw myself playing varsity football and then going to college for with a sports scholarship and then be a cop or something. That is impossible now. I have never even went to kindergarten. I’ve always been in an environment like this one. I guess you could say that it’s becoming a “family business”. If I did go to school right now this would be my senior year so it’s too late to get that scholarship. Even if I did somehow end up in college, there is no way I could be a police officer. It’s not like they are going to hire a kid who has been helping with kidnapping since he was ten, even if I was nice to the girls and didn’t want to hurt them. It makes no difference to society.

See, I may have never stepped inside a classroom, but I’m not stupid. I know what is right and what is wrong. I know what society expects and I even know what two plus two is. Okay, so maybe I know a little more math than that. I was able to figure out a lot of things on my own but by talking to so many girls and getting them to open up to me, I’ve learned some things from them as well.

Why am I thinking about all of this? I’ve given up my dreams and I’ve accepted the fact that I’m where I am. I know that I can never fall in love with any of these girls and they are strictly just part of the job.

But this one girl is changing everything. Suddenly, I’m thinking of things being different and I’m imagining things that are impossible. Things that could never be mine, because I’m destined for life as the bad guy. I have no other option.

Suddenly, the door to the girl’s room swings open. I quickly jump up off the ground and at the same time nudge the small brunette awake so she won’t be woken up by whoever is coming in the room.

I scowl as the face I hate most enters the small room. The shaved head glistens with sweat and his mustache rises as he smiles at me evilly. His big beer belly shakes as he laughs as I stare at him with angry eyes.

“Hello, Jason. You are actually doing what I told you to do for once. You’re actually watching this little twerp,” he says as he cups the young girls face. I glare at him and step between him and the girl like it’s no big deal.

“Yeah, I am. I’ve got it under control so you can go back to whatever you were doing before,” I say. I try to keep the annoyed tone out of my voice so I don’t make him mad.

“I think that’s up for to decide. You aren’t allowed to tell me what to do. You are the child and I’m the adult. So just because you are so eager for me to leave, why don’t you go find something to do and I’ll stay here and keep this little beauty company. Maybe I’ll get to know her better,” he says with a smirk. I wince at his words knowing what he means by ‘getting to know her better’.

But I walk out of the room and keep my head down so my eyes won’t meet the terrified ones of the brunette. I just wander around the huge building and tune out the painful cries of girls. I let my thoughts cloud my mind and lead me wherever they will take me here.
