As Eric Delko was walking down the hall he saw Ryan Wolfe coming toward him.

“Hey Ryan,” Eric said, “I was just looking for you.”

“Why me?” Ryan asked.

“Because it’s about Rebecca.” Eric said and then stopped.

“What’s going on Eric?” Ryan asked.

“H., Calleigh, and Frank are at your apartment.” Eric said.

“Why?” Ryan asked.

“To arrest Rebecca.” Eric said.

“For what?” Ryan asked.

“Murder.” Eric said, “Her fingerprints were all over the murder weapon.”

“Oh man.” Ryan said.

“I wouldn’t do that if I were you.” But before Eric could say anything else Ryan was running down the hall.

****

Meanwhile at Ryan’s apartment Horatio Caine had just knocked on the door.

“Rebecca are you in there?” he asked.

The group outside the door was silent.

“Do you think she’s still asleep?” Calleigh Duquesne asked.

“You never know.” Frank Tripp said.

“Rebecca its Horatio Caine.” Horatio said.

They waited, still no answer.

“Go ahead.” Horatio said getting out of the way as two officers kicked down the door.

As Horatio, Calleigh, and Frank walked into the apartment they didn’t draw their guns.

“Rebecca.” Calleigh said going into Rebecca’s room.

“Is she there Calleigh?” Horatio asked.

“No she’s not.” Calleigh said, “But I found blood.”

“Do we know where it might have come from?” Horatio asked coming up behind Calleigh.

“Possible a cut of some sort.” Calleigh said.

“It looks like someone ransacked the place.” Frank said.

“And they took Rebecca with them.” Horatio said putting on his sunglasses.

As he was heading out the door of Ryan’s apartment Ryan came running up.

“What happened?” Ryan asked, “Is Rebecca all ready at the station?”

“Slow down Mr. Wolfe.” Horatio said taking his sunglasses off.

“What happened?” Ryan asked.

“Rebecca’s gone missing.” Horatio said.

“What do you mean Rebecca’s gone missing?” Ryan asked.

“It means she’s not here.” Horatio said.

“Then where is she?” Ryan asked.

“Take it easy Mr. Wolfe.” Horatio said, “We don’t know where she is.”

“What do you think happened to her?” Ryan asked.

“A possible kidnapping.” Calleigh said coming up behind Horatio, “Did Rebecca have any wounds?”

“Not that I know of.” Ryan said, “Why?”

“We found some blood on the carpet in her room.” Calleigh said, “It could be the kidnappers.”

“Why don’t you take it down to the lab?” Horatio said, “But that’s the only part you can be involved in.”

“Okay, H.” Ryan said taking the evidence from Calleigh.

As soon as Ryan got to the lab he gave the evidence to Eric who went to work on it right away.

As he watched Eric Ryan wondered who would want to kidnap Rebecca. Rebecca had only been living with him for a week, she came to stay with him after their parents had died. And now she’s gone again!

“Ryan I have results from that blood they found in Rebecca’s room.” Eric said.

“Is it hers?” Ryan asked.

“Nope.” Eric said.

“Then who’s is it?” Ryan asked.

“His.” Eric said turning the computer screen toward Ryan.

“Amel Jones.” Ryan said, “He was in jail for murder, rape, theft, and human trafficking.”

“Wow.” Eric said, “He’s been in jail for a lot of things.”

“You don’t think he’s gonna sell Rebecca as a sex slave?” Ryan asked.

“Let’s bring him in and find out.” Eric said.

Several minutes later Amel Jones was sitting across from Eric.

“What am I doing here?” Amel asked.

“We found your blood at a possible kidnapping.” Eric said.

“Who’s?” Amel asked.

“Rebecca Wolfe’s.” Eric said sliding a picture of Rebecca across the table.

“Never seen that girl in my life.” Amel said.

“Then tell us why your blood got into her room.” Eric said.

“I don’t know.” Amel said, “But she could have been kidnapped by anyone.”

“Your record proves otherwise.” Eric said.

“I don’t care what happens to that girl.” Amel said, “And unless you have any more evidence against me, then I am going.”

“Don’t leave town.” Eric said.

As Amel left Ryan came in and joined Eric.

“Any luck?” Ryan asked.

“Nope.” Eric said.

“Maybe Calleigh and Horatio will find something else to prove he did it.” Ryan said.

“Let’s hope so.” Eric said, “Don’t worry Ryan we’ll find her.”

“I hope your right.” Ryan said.

****

“Where have you been boss?” the guy asked as Amel entered.

“I was at the police station.” Amel said.

“Why?” the guy asked.

“Because the cut that the girl gave me left some of my blood in her bedroom.” Amel said.

“I learned that from my brother.” Rebecca said from the corner.

“And who’s your bother?” Amel asked turning toward her.

“Why would I tell you that?” Rebecca asked.

“Cause maybe I’ll cancel what I am going to do with you tonight.” Amel said.

“You’re just trying to scare me into telling you.” Rebecca said, “But it’s not working.”

But inside Rebecca knew Amel was telling the truth.

“Is that something your brother taught you too?” Amel asked.

“Maybe.” Rebecca said, “I wish he were here right now.”

“I could arrange that, that is if you would tell me who he is?” Amel said.

“No way.” Rebecca said.

“You might want to tell him kid.” the other guy said.

“To bad I’m not.” Rebecca said.

“Do you have everything ready?” Amel asked.

“Sure do boss.” the guy said.

“Good, let’s get started.” Amel said.

As the other guy forced Rebecca up he said, “You should have told him.”

As he dragged her into a dark room she was wondering what was going to happen.

****

Meanwhile back at the lab Calleigh had been trying to find a match to a partial fingerprint from Rebecca’s room.

“Any luck Calleigh?” Horatio asked.

“I just got it.” Calleigh said.

“Is it Amel Jones?” Eric asked.

“No” Calleigh said, “Why?”

“Cause it was his blood that was in Rebecca’s room.” Eric said.

“Well this fingerprint belongs to a guy by the name of Oliver Montoya.” Calleigh said.

“Let’s bring him in.” Horatio said.

Pretty soon Oliver Montoya was sitting in a chair across the table from Calleigh.

“Did they tell you why you are here Oliver?” Horatio asked.

“Nope.” Oliver said.

“Good.” Horatio said.

“Do you know this girl?” Callie asked sliding Rebecca’s picture across the table.

“No.” Oliver said, “Why am I suppose to?”

“You are.” Horatio said, “Your fingerprints were at the scene of a kidnapping.”

“I would never kidnap anybody.” Oliver said.

“Then how did your fingerprints end up at the crime scene?” Calleigh asked.

“I have no idea.” Oliver said.

“I suggest you take another look at the picture.” said Horatio.

Oliver picked it up and looked at it again.

“Sorry.” Oliver said.

“Don’t leave town.” Horatio said.

With that Oliver left.

“Do you think he’s telling the truth, Horatio?” Calleigh asked.

“I don’t think he was.” Horatio said, “Our number on priority is to find Rebecca.”

“I agree.” Calleigh said, “I’ll go run all the fingerprints again.”

“Good idea.” Horatio said, “I’m going to go talk to Ryan.”

With that Calleigh headed back to the lab while Horatio went to go find Ryan.

Horatio found Ryan talking to Eric.

“Eric, may I speak to Ryan alone?” Horatio asked.

“Sure no problem.” Eric said.

“Could you go help Calleigh in the lab please?” Horatio said.

“Sure.” Eric said.

“Go ahead and have a seat Ryan.” Horatio said.

So Ryan sat down as Horatio handed him a folder.

“Do you know this man?” Horatio asked.

“He lives in the building my apartment is in.” Ryan said.

“Do you have any idea how his fingerprints got into Rebecca’s room?” Horatio asked.

“No idea.” Ryan said, “He’s never been inside the apartment.”

“Lieutenant Caine this envelope just came for you.” an officer said handing Horatio a manila envelope.

“Thank you son.” Horatio said.

With that the officer left.

“What is that?” Ryan asked as Horatio opened the envelope.

“It’s a DVD.” Horatio said, “Let’s go watch it, it might be a clue.”

So Ryan followed Horatio into the lab where Calleigh and Eric were working.

“No luck yet.” Calleigh said.

“I may have a lead here.” Horatio said, “It just came.”

Eric got everything set up and then pushed play, no one knew what to expect.

Soon a black scene came on with a little record sign on the corner. The group could hear a scream and crying.

“I don’t like the look of this.” Calleigh said.

Just then a voice said, “I’m sure you want to know what is going on. Well I’m Bob and I am going to be your narrator.”

“What the heck?” Eric said.

“Since you can’t see very well let me introduce our main characters, we have Adam and Eve and they are in bed together.”

“This is crazy.” Calleigh said.

Just then they heard a very loud scream.

“That was Eve.” the narrator said, “She seems to not be enjoying it.”

Then they heard crying and a voice say, “Please get off of me.”

“Horatio, that’s Rebecca.” Ryan said.

“Eric stop it please.” Horatio said, “Are you sure Ryan?”

“One hundred percent.” Ryan said.

“Okay.” Horatio said.

****

Meanwhile Amel had Rebecca on a roof with a gun aimed at the police station.

“You shoot Lieutenant Cain when he exits.” Amel said, “Or I’ll shoot you.”

“Fine.” Rebecca said.

“There he is.” Amel said.

Rebecca looked and saw Horatio and Ryan coming out followed by Calleigh and Eric.

“Shoot.” Amel said.

Rebecca pretended to line it up and then shot several feet behind Horatio.

“You missed!” Amel said grabbing the gun from Rebecca.

Rebecca ducked down, closed her eyes, and waited.

She heard the gun go off and then she was pulled to her feet.

Rebecca took a quick glance toward the police station and saw Ryan on the ground, she could see the blood!

“Get into the helicopter!” Amel said, “On the ground in the back.”

So Rebecca obeyed.

As soon as Amel got into the helicopter it started and lifted off the roof.

Just then Rebecca felt her back pocket vibrate.

“My phone.” Rebecca whispered, “Hello?”

“This is Horatio Caine.” came the reply.

“Lieutenant Caine, thank goodness.” Rebecca said.

“Are you all right?” Horatio asked.

“Yeah, but I’m really scared.” Rebecca said.

“Don’t worry.” Horatio said, “We’re following the helicopter now.”

“How’s Ryan?” Rebecca asked.

At first Horatio didn’t answer.

“Is he okay?” Rebecca asked.

“I don’t know Rebecca.” Horatio said, “Calleigh went to the hospital with him.”

“I’m sorry I shot at you.” Rebecca said.

“That’s okay.” Horatio said.

“Are you guys going to be able to rescue me?” Rebecca asked.

Just then Amel looked back at her and saw the phone.

“Oh no.” Rebecca said as Amel grabbed the phone and threw it out the window.

“What did you tell them?” Amel asked.

“Nothing.” Rebecca said, “And why did you shoot Ryan?”

“Oh is that the name of the guy I shot?” Amel said.

“Yeah.” Rebecca said.

“Well to bad.” Amel said.

“Take that back or else.” Rebecca said.

“Or else what?” Amel asked, “Oh wait.”

“Oh wait what?” Rebecca asked trying not to show any emotion.

“Ryan’s your brother isn’t he?” Amel asked.

“No he’s not.” Rebecca said, “Do we look anything alike?”

“Sure you do.” Amel said and then turned back toward the front.

Rebecca started to cry silently worried about Ryan.

It felt like they had been flying forever when they finally landed.

When the helicopter had stopped Amel pulled Rebecca roughly from the back.

“I hope Bob has everything set up.” Amel told the pilot.

“I’m sure he does boss.” The pilot said.

As the three of them headed into the building from the roof Rebecca was hoping Horatio and the police had caught up to them.

When they reached the first floor Rebecca saw a chair in between two cameras.

“What’s this?” Rebecca asked.

“My most brilliant plan yet.” Amel said pushing Rebecca down onto a chair and tying her up, “The cameras are live so Bob and I can watch you.”

“Why?” Rebecca asked.

“In case anyone comes to rescue you, I can push a button in another room and you and your rescuer will go kaboom!” Amel said.

With that Amel and the pilot left.

“Now what am I going to do?” Rebecca moaned, “I guess I wait for Lieutenant Caine to get here.”

As she waited she started to fall asleep, all of a sudden she heard her name being called so she opened her eyes but she didn’t see anyone.

“Who said that?” Rebecca asked.

“Shh.” came an answer.

Rebecca caught sight of Eric going behind one of the cameras.

Eric put his finger to his lips when he caught sight of Rebecca looking at him.

“Okay H. the cameras are off.” came Frank’s voice.

“Go find the kidnapper.” Horatio said to Eric and Frank, “I’ll get Rebecca.”

“Okay Horatio.” Frank said as he and Eric took off.

“Are you okay?” Horatio asked.

“Yeah.” Rebecca said as Horatio untied her.

“Go out to the car.” Horatio said.

So Rebecca headed outside.

Horatio headed over to where Eric and Frank were.

“Well Amel,” Eric said, “I thought you didn’t know Rebecca.”

“Who is this Rebecca you’re talking about?” Amel asked.

“The girl you had tied up in there.” Horatio said.

“I’m not saying anything more until I get a lawyer.” Amel said.

“Frank please take them down to the station.” Horatio said, “Eric and I are going to the hospital.”

“Will do.” Frank said.

So Frank and two others escorted Amel and his two friends outside, as Horatio, Eric, and Rebecca got into the car.

“Are we going to go see Ryan?” Rebecca asked.

“Yes we are.” Eric said.

Within minutes they were at the hospital, Rebecca ran in and spotted Calleigh in the ER waiting room.

“Is he okay?” Rebecca asked Calleigh.

“He’s still in surgery.” Calleigh said.

“How long has he been in there?” Rebecca asked.

“I don’t know.” Calleigh said as Horatio and Eric walked up to them.

“Let’s all have a seat and wait.” Horatio said.

So Rebecca, Eric, and Horatio sat down to wait.

It seemed like they had been waiting forever when finally a doctor came out.

“Are you the group waiting for the cop who was shot?” the doctor asked.

“Yes we are.” Calleigh said.

“Any of you related to him?” the doctor asked.

“I am.” Rebecca said.

“Well he is doing fine.” the doctor said, “I’ll show you to his room.”

So Rebecca, Horatio, Calleigh, and Eric followed the doctor into a room where Ryan was laying in a hospital bed still out of it.

“When is he supposed to wake up?” Eric asked.

“Anytime within the next thirty minutes.” the doctor said, “Have one of the nurse’s page me when he wakes up.”

“Okay.” Eric said.

Horatio watched as Rebecca went over to Ryan and grabbed his hand.

“I am so sorry Ryan.” Rebecca said, “This is all my fault.”

Horatio signaled Eric and Calleigh to leave the room.

“We’ll be right outside Rebecca.” Horatio said.

“Okay.” Rebecca said.

So Eric, Calleigh, and Horatio left the room.

“Do you think she’ll be all right?” Calleigh asked.

“I’m sure she’ll be fine.” Eric said.

Just then Rebecca came out of the room.

Nobody asked her anything as she walked away; she really hadn’t wanted to talk to them anyway.

So she started to walk toward the door to the parking garage, went out and found a good place to cry.

“It’s all my fault that Ryan was shot.” Rebecca said, “Maybe I should have shot Lieutenant Caine, but then he rest of the group would have been mad at me.”

Just then she heard someone come over to her.

“Are you Ryan Wolfe’s sister Rebecca?” asked a doctor.

“Yes I am.” Rebecca said.

She wasn’t sure what this doctor wanted.

“Great.” the doctor said, “May I talk to you?”

“Well…” Rebecca said, “I guess.”

“Follow me.” the doctor said.

As she followed the doctor Rebecca got a really bad feeling that something bad was going to happen.

When they reached a car far away from the door the doctor stopped.

“So what do you want to tell me?” Rebecca asked.

But the doctor didn’t answer, but popped open the trunk of the car.

He grabbed some rope and then grabbed Rebecca.

“What are you doing?” Rebecca asked.

“Kidnapping you.” the doctor said.

Before Rebecca could say anything the doctor had tied her up and gagged her.

He threw her into the trunk, tied her ankles, and then he shut the trunk!

****

Meanwhile Calleigh had come out to look for Rebecca as the doctor came back.

“Good evening.” the doctor said as he walked by.

As the doctor went inside Calleigh started to call Rebecca but then stopped and immediately grabbed her cell.

“Horatio, we have a problem.” Calleigh said into the phone.

“What is it?” Horatio asked.

“I just saw Oliver Montoya head inside as a doctor.” Calleigh said.

“Eric and I will keep an eye out.” Horatio said, “Any sign of Rebecca?”

“None.” Calleigh said, “But I’ll keep looking.”

“Good.” Horatio said, “I’ve got to go I just saw Oliver.”

“Bye.” Calleigh said and hung up, “Rebecca.”

No answer.

“Rebecca.” Calleigh called.

Still no answer!
Just then Eric came out.

“Any luck?” he asked.

“Nope.” Calleigh said.

“H. is talking to Oliver right now.” Eric said.

“How’s Ryan?” Calleigh asked.

“He’s still out.” Eric said.

“I hope he wakes up soon.” Calleigh said.

“Me too.” Eric said, “Rebecca.”

No answer!
Just then Calleigh caught sight of a woman coming toward the door.

“Excuse me miss.” Calleigh said.

“Yes.” the woman said.

“Have you seen a girl of about sixteen with blond hair in here?” Calleigh asked.

“No sorry.” the woman said.

“Thanks.” Calleigh said.

With that the woman went inside.

“I don’t like the sound of that.” Eric said.

“Maybe she went back inside and we didn’t see her.” Calleigh said,

“Maybe.” Eric said.

So Calleigh and Eric headed back inside.

Eric spotted Horatio still talking to Oliver with a security guard.

“So what are you doing here?” Horatio asked as Calleigh and Eric walked up.

“I work here.” Oliver said.

“Well you were a suspect in a kidnapping and now you’re here.” Horatio said.

“And you still are.” Eric said.

“Still?” Oliver asked, “I thought they found that girl.”

“We did but now she’s gone again.” Eric said, “And you were the last person seen in the parking garage.”

“Well didn’t see anybody out there.” Oliver said.

“Tell us where she is.” Horatio said, “And maybe we can work out a deal.”

“Fine.” Oliver said, “How about a clue first?”

“So you do know where she is.” Eric said.

“Sure.” Oliver said.

“Then you are under arrest.” Horatio said, “But before we go there you need to tell us where Rebecca is.”

“She’s in a dark place.” Oliver said, “And if you don’t her soon she may run out of air and die.”

“Anything else?” Calleigh asked.

But Oliver didn’t answer.

“I know where she is.” Eric said.

“Where?” Calleigh asked.

“A car trunk.” Eric said, “Is that where she is?”

“Maybe.” Oliver said.

“Give us your keys!” Horatio said, “And then tell us what your car looks like.”

So Oliver reached into hi pocket and handed Horatio his keys.

“Your car?” Horatio asked.

“Last car on your left when you go out the door.” Oliver said.

“Eric go.” Horatio said handing Eric the keys.

With that Eric and Calleigh ran out into the garage.

“Last car on your left.” Calleigh said.

When Eric reached the last car he started to try every key in the trunk.

Calleigh watched silently.

Finally Eric reached the last key and sure enough it opened the trunk and inside was Rebecca.

Calleigh and Eric quickly untied her and helped her out of the trunk.

“Are you all right?” Calleigh asked.

“Yeah, I’m fine.” Rebecca said.

So Calleigh, Eric and Rebecca headed back inside and there standing in his doorway was Ryan.

Rebecca ran over to Ryan giving him a great big hug all most knocking him over.

“I am so sorry.” Rebecca said, “It’s all my fault.”

“No it’s not.” Ryan said as Rebecca started to cry.

“Yes it is.” Rebecca said.

“It is not.” Ryan said.

“If I had shot Lieutenant Caine like Amel had asked me to, you wouldn’t have been shot.” Rebecca said.

“You would still have felt guilty.” Ryan said.

“True.” Rebecca said.

“I’m okay.” Ryan said.

“Thank goodness.” Rebecca said, “I was so worried about you.”

“I was worried about you to.” Ryan said, “So we’re even”

With that Rebecca laughed.

“Glad to hear that.” Ryan said.

Just then Horatio came over.

“Rebecca and Mr. Wolfe you need to move out from that door way.” he said.

“Why?” Rebecca and Ryan asked.

“Cause you are live on the internet right now.” Horatio said.

“How?” Ryan asked.

“We don’t know.” Horatio said.

So Ryan and Rebecca followed Horatio away from the doorway.

“How did you find that out?” Rebecca asked.

“Natalia.” Horatio said.

“Do we know who could be doing it?” Ryan asked.

“Natalia is working on that now.” Horatio said, “Meanwhile I sent Eric and Calleigh to see if it’s someone in the hospital.”

“You think it could be?” Rebecca asked.

“Most likely.” Horatio said.

Just then Horatio’s phone rang.

“Do you know why someone would want to put you on the internet?” Rebecca asked Ryan.

“No.” Ryan said.

“Still?” Horatio said into his phone, “Okay thanks Natalia.”

“What was that about?” Ryan asked as Horatio hung up.

“We’re still being watched.” Horatio said.

“How?” Ryan asked.

“No clue.” Horatio said.

Just then Eric and Calleigh came back.

“No luck H.” Eric said.

“We have to get Ryan and Rebecca somewhere where these people don’t know where they are.” Horatio said.

“How?” Rebecca asked.

“Let me think for a moment.” Horatio said.

Just then the doctor from earlier came over.

“I see my patient is up and walking.” he said.

“Yes sir.” Ryan said.

“Let’s go back into your room and see if the rest of you is functioning.” The doctor said.

“Sorry he can’t do that.” Horatio said.

“Why?” the doctor asked.

“Police business.” Horatio said, “You can do whatever you were going to do, but you must do it out here.”

“Whatever.” the doctor said and walked away.

“Okay I have this all figured out.” Horatio said.

“What?” Ryan asked.

“How to confuse the internet people.” Horatio said.

“How?” Calleigh asked.

“Would you mind if Rebecca stayed with you, Calleigh?” Horatio asked.

“Of course not.” Calleigh said.

“And Eric can Ryan stay at your place?” Horatio asked.

“Sure no problem.” Eric said.

Just then the doctor came back.

“If he’s all right can he leave?” Eric asked.

“I guess he could.” The doctor said as he started checking Ryan over.

A few minutes later the doctor was done checking Ryan over.

“So?” Eric said.

“He may go.” The doctor said.

Several minutes later the group was outside.

“We will meet at the station in the morning.” Horatio said.

“Bye Rebecca.” Ryan said, “I love you.”

“Bye Ryan.” Rebecca said, “I love you too.”

“Everyone be careful.” Horatio said, “Natalia will be monitoring the site so if the people figure out where either of you are, I’ll be at the door as soon as possible!”

“Okay.” Calleigh and Eric said.

So the group split up, Calleigh and Rebecca went one way and Eric, Horatio, and Ryan went the other.

As Rebecca and Calleigh got into Calleigh’s Hummer Rebecca asked, “Do you think this plan will work?”

“Let’s hope so.” Calleigh said as she started the engine.

“Thank you by the way.” Rebecca said.

“For what?” Calleigh asked.

“For taking Ryan to the hospital.” Rebecca answered.

“Your welcome.” Calleigh said, “He’s a really good friend, so I would have done it for him anyway.”

“That’s nice.” Rebecca said.

“So have you and Ryan gotten closer now that you live with him?” Calleigh asked.

“Yeah I think so.” Rebecca said.

Pretty soon they were at Calleigh’s apartment.

“Sorry it isn’t clean.” Calleigh said, “I really wasn’t expecting any company.”

“Oh, it’s okay.” Rebecca said.

“I vote let’s get some sleep.” Calleigh said.

“I agree to that.” Rebecca said.

“You can have my room and I’ll sleep on the couch.” Calleigh said.

“Are you sure?” Rebecca asked.

“Yeah.” Calleigh said.

So the two girls went to sleep.

About midnight or so there came a loud banging on the door!

Thinking it was Horatio, Calleigh got up to answer it.

When she opened the door she saw a stranger holding a gun.

“All right get back inside and don’t scream.” the guy said.

So Calleigh obeyed.

The first guy walked in followed by two other men.

Just then Rebecca came out, “Is that Lieutenant Caine?”

“No.” Calleigh said, “Now get back into the room.”

Rebecca started to obey but before she could get into the room one men grabbed her.

“Tie them up.” One guy said.

“Why are you here?” Calleigh asked.

“To get my purchase.” the guy answered.

“What?” Rebecca asked.

“You.” the guy said.

“What do you mean?” Calleigh asked.

“I bought her for a million dollars.” the guy said.

“For what?” Rebecca asked.

“You didn’t know what Amel was did you?” the guy asked.

“Nope.” Rebecca said.

“He sells girls and woman as slaves.” the guy said.

“Sex slaves?” Calleigh asked.

“Exactly.” the guy said.

“Calleigh you won’t let them take me will you?” Rebecca asked panicked.

“No I won’t.” Calleigh said.

Just then they heard some police sirens in the distance, Calleigh’s pager go off, and the phone started to ring.

“Horatio’s coming.” Calleigh said.

“Who’s that?” the guy asked.

“Your worst enemy.” Rebecca said.

“All right boys grab her and let’s go.” the guy said.

So the two men walked over to Rebecca, grabbed her and headed for the door.

“Let me go.” Rebecca said.

“Sorry no can do.” the guy said.

The guy started to open the door but stopped when he heard running footsteps coming up the stairs.

He quickly closed the door and locked it.

“Out the back way.” the guy said.

“Calleigh are you in there?” Came Eric’s voice.

“Hurry up.” Calleigh said, “Their taking Rebecca.”

“Help!” Rebecca said.

“Don’t worry.” came Eric’s reply.

“Bye.” the guy said as he followed the other two guys out the door.

“Let me go!” Rebecca said.

The guys quickly ran down the stairs, when all of a suddenly they stopped.

Rebecca looked and saw Lieutenant Caine.

“Let the girl go!” he said his gun pointed at the three men.

“No way!” the lead guy said, “She’s mine!”

“I said let her go!” Horatio said.

“I said no.” the guy said, “Come on guys let’s go.”

Horatio shot at the wall in front of the lead guy.

“I said let here go!” Horatio said.

The lead guy looked at the guy who had Rebecca, and with that the guy who had Rebecca dropped her and the three guys took off.

Horatio quickly put his gun away and went over to Rebecca.

“Those guys are going to get away.” Rebecca said.

“No they won’t.” Horatio said, “Frank’s out there waiting for them.”

As he finished untying her he helped her up.

“How did you know we were in trouble?” Rebecca asked.

“Cause Calleigh’s address was on the website.” Horatio said, “Are you all right?”

“Yeah I’m fine.” Rebecca said, “You guys came just in time.”

“We were lucky.” Horatio said.

“Thank you.” Rebecca said, “Where’s Ryan?”

“He’s probably inside.” Horatio said.

So Rebecca followed Lt. Caine back into Calleigh’s apartment.

“Are you okay, Rebecca?” Calleigh asked.

“Yeah.” Rebecca said, “Thanks to Lieutenant Caine.”

“So what did those men want?” Ryan asked.

“Rebecca.” Calleigh said.

“Why?” Eric asked.

“A sex slave.” Calleigh said, “I guess Amel was running a sex slave operation.”

“We got here just in time.” Eric said.

“Yes you did.” Calleigh said.

Just then Frank entered.

“We got them.” he said.

“Good.” Rebecca said.

“Let’s all go and head down to the station.” Horatio said.

So Callie, Eric, Frank, Rebecca, and Ryan followed him out to the cars.

Rebecca and Ryan got into Horatio’s Hummer and the group followed him to the station.

“You guys may be able to go back to Ryan’s apartment later today.” Horatio said.

But neither Ryan nor Rebecca answered.

He looked in the back seat and saw Rebecca and Ryan were asleep.

The rest of the way to the station was silent.

When they got there Ryan and Rebecca woke up.

When they entered Natalia Boa Vista walked up to them.

“The website has been shut down.” she said.

“That’s good news.” Eric said.

“Yeah it is.” Calleigh said.

Ryan and Rebecca headed into a room to sleep while Horatio and Frank went into the interview room.

“So what is your name?” Frank asked sitting down.

“Why should I tell you?” the guy asked.

“If you don’t we have ways of finding out.” Horatio said.

“My name is Jonah Harrison.” the man said.

“Now Jonah, what were you doing in that apartment?” asked Frank.

“Getting my purchase.” Jonah said.

“And what was that?” Frank asked.

“Not what but who.” Jonah said.

“Then who?” Frank asked.

“The kid.” Jonah said.

“How much did you pay for her?” Horatio asked.

“One million dollars.” Jonah said.

“And what were you going to do with her?” Frank asked.

“What do you think?” Jonah asked.

“Never mind we know.” Horatio said, “Were you in charge of the website?”

“You mean where all the information about Ryan and Rebecca Wolfe was?” Jonah asked.

“That’s the one.” Frank said.

“Nope.” Jonah said.

“Do you know who was?” Horatio asked.

“Nope.” Jonah said as an officer came in.

The officer escorted Jonah out.

“What’s our next move?” Frank asked.

“I don’t know.” Horatio said.

He glanced at the door and saw Natalia standing there.

“Excuse me.” he said.

“We’ve got them.” Natalia said as Horatio came out.

“Who?” he asked.

“The people who had the website.” Natalia said.

“Great.” Horatio said as Natalia handed him a paper.

Horatio stuck his head back into the interview room.

“Frank I have our next move.” he said.

Several minutes later Horatio, Frank, Eric, Calleigh, and several police officers’ were at the address Natalia had given Horatio.

Horatio knocked on the door and said, “Miami day police.”

But no one answered.

“Police open up!” Frank said.

Still no body opened the door.

Eric kicked open the door and the group rushed in guns drawn.

“I found him.” Calleigh called from the kitchen.

Eric, Frank, and Horatio joined Calleigh in the kitchen, there on the floor was a man in his thirties dead on the floor from a self inflicted gun shot wound to the head.

“Well I guess Ryan and Rebecca are safe now.” Calleigh said.

“Seems that way.” Eric said.

As Calleigh and Eric walked out of the kitchen they saw a door to a study wide open, so they headed into the study, but both stopped just inside the door.

“How did this guy get so many pictures of Ryan?” Calleigh asked.

Eric and Calleigh could not believe their eyes, pictures of Ryan covered every available space in the room.

“This guy’s been planning this for a long time.” Eric said.

“It sure looks that way.” Calleigh said.

“Well I’m pretty sure Ryan and Rebecca are safe now.” Eric said.

“I hope your right.” Calleigh said walking over to the desk.

Eric looked at all the pictures on the wall and saw picture’s of Ryan from High School and Collage.

“This guy either knew Ryan or someone else put this guy up to it.” Eric said,

“I’m pretty sure it was this guy.” Calleigh said.

“What makes you say that?” Eric asked coming over to the desk.

“He has everything written down.” Calleigh said.

Eric picked up his phone and dialed Ryan’s cell.

“Hello?” Ryan answered sounding tired.

“Ryan, its Eric.” Eric said.

“Oh hi Eric.” Ryan said, “What’s going on?”

“Do you know a guy by the name of Mark Wellin?” Eric asked.

“Yeah.” Ryan said, “Why?”

“He was the one in charge of the website.” Eric said.

“You must have the wrong name.” Ryan said, “Cause the Mark Wellin I know would never do such a thing.”

“How did you know Mark?” Eric asked.

“We went to collage together and were in the police academy together.” Ryan said.

“Any reason why he would be mad at you?” Eric asked.

“Well…” Ryan said, “I did graduate.”

“And he didn’t?” Eric asked.

“Exactly.” Ryan said, “But he told me he wasn’t mad at me.”

“Eric come over here please.” Calleigh said.

“Ryan I’ve got to go.” Eric said, “Get some more sleep.”

“Okay.” Ryan said and hung up.

“What is it Calleigh?” Eric asked.

“Look at theses.” Calleigh said stepping away from the computer.

There on the computer screen were pictures of Rebecca!

“So was he stalking Rebecca?” Eric asked.

“We’ll never know.” Calleigh said.
