His here is chapter two of a project I’ve been working on recently. I hope you guys like it.
I-I don’t know what to do with myself. I’ve been home now for three days and the only thing I can think about is getting out there to find Sierra, but mum says I have to rest. That there’s still a threat of it coming back. I know it’s not coming back. Before I collapsed in to my bed the first night I was home I snooped around Sierras room. I knew that there wasn’t much chance of me finding any evidence in an eighteen years room, but still I had to look. All I found were books on fairy tales and myths and legends. Odd right. But I still have no real clue on her whereabouts and it bothers me more and more every day. In the haze of an early morning I decide my best bet is to ring Duke again, drill him for more information. I’m not keen on him but it is my best bet. After the forth ring he picks up. His voice is low and scratchy, “H-hello?” “Morning Duke, it’s Raven.” Silence echoes through the phone. “Duke?” for a moment I think he’s hung up but then he clears his throat. “Hey Raven, u-uh what’s up?” “I was just ringing to see if you had any more information you could give me, about Sierra.” A ruffling noise hisses through the phone, a muffled female voice speaks. “Babe, who’s Sierra.” My heart drops as I realize that the boy Sierra has been obsessing about for years and finally is dating has cheated on her. She will be so heartbroken. “Who’s that duke?” I say my voice low and deadly all though still weak. “Uh-um Raven, this isn’t really the time?” I have to physically stop myself from screaming down the phone at him. “Who is that Duke!” I hiss. “It’s no one.” He mumbles.” “No one?” The other girl screams. “I didn’t mean it like that babe.” Silence. “Are you cheating on my sister?” Silence again. “Duke?” “N-no.” “Don’t lie to me Duke.” “It’s not like that.” A growl escapes my lips. “You’re a waste of air.” I growl again and hang up the phone. I can’t believe it, I knew he was a waste of space before, but still I didn’t think he could sink this low. Poor Sierra.
An hour later.
Lying in this bed is so tiring, I know that doesn’t make any sense but it is. I feel more drained from lying in bed than I would if I was out there looking for Sierra. My parents have stopped bothering, they think she’s just gone off with some friends. For some kind of teenage rebellion road trip or something, but I know she’s not that kind of girl. Sierra has always been friendly and beautiful. With her long blonde hair and pretty honey eyes like mine and mums. But she has never been rebellious, she’s very goody two shoes if you will. You’d think that our parents would prefer her over me but they’ve always favoured me, I have no idea why. I am the negative one, the rebellious one, the black sheep if you like. Part of me wants them to love her more, she deserves it. Sometimes I feel that they ignore her, I think maybe she blames me a little bit. But she’d never tell me that, she could never heart my feelings. I’ve always been the subject of love. Which after a while gets overwhelming and annoying. I don’t know what it is. I’m not that special I can be a real pessimist, but people just tend to like me. I’ve never been bullied, actually bullies tend to try and befriend me, though I never accept their friendship. I dress like a Goth because I feel it suits my personality. My hair is dark brown like my dad’s and I’m annoyingly short. I get jealousy spouts over my sister sometimes, because she’s tall, leggy, blonde and model like stunning. But I love her more than anyone else in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m the only sane person in a world filled with nut jobs. My parents are caring but ignorant, my friends are over emotional and everyone else are blinded to my sister’s glory. I just don’t understand how they can notice me but ignore her. It’s strange, so strange. It’s like nobody even cares that she’s gone. I care though and I won’t give up on her, I refuse to ever give up.
His home is so cold, I haven’t seen him in days. He brought me here locked the door and just left without a word. I don’t know what I’m going to do, I need to get back to my sister, I need to make sure she’s alright. I need to know that the deal worked. What… What if it didn’t? What if she’s gone and I didn’t even get to say goodbye. What if she was calling for me on her death bed begging me to come back? Tears escape my already tear drenched eyes. No I can’t think like that, we had a deal and he must stick to it. Unless.. No, no I mustn’t think like that, Raven is fine. She’s fine, I know it, I feel it in my bones. The door creeks open and he walks through, an unsure smile splayed across his blue lips. “My love.” I glare up at him but then smile, if I play along maybe he’ll let me see my sister. He frowns but then smiles back. I stand up and walk away from the bed, closer to him. “May I ask you a question?” I ask, trying my hardest to look seductive, which for me is really hard. I’m not the seducing type. He moves closer to me, matching my steps. A curious smirk crawling up one side of his cheek. “Of course.” He murmurs. I place a hand on his cold chest, covered by a thin white cotton shirt. Some buttons are undone and I can see part of his almost blue pale white skin. See he is quite an attractive man, but he’s repulsive to me, because I know how evil he is and I see his personality not his beauty. Everything about him is cold. From his voice to his icy finger crawling up my back. I try to repress a shiver. His eyes linger on my lips and I try to keep my seductive expression. “When can I see my family? See I agreed to give you my love, but I never agreed to leave my family behind, so really I have a right to see them and let them know that I’m ok.” His smile falls and his hands tighten around my waist. My breath catches in my throat and I struggle against him but his grip tightens more. “I don’t care if you have a right to see them, you’re not seeing them, and you’re not to ever leave this place. You must stay here with me forever. Where no one can hurt you or take you away from me. When we finally marry you will belong to me and must do as I bid.” I drop the seductive act and try to push him away, he doesn’t let go, he is incredibly strong. He giggles slightly at my futile attempt. “I am a human being, not your slave, you can’t treat me like this.” His giggle turns to a full on cackle. When he catches his breath he smirks and shakes his head. “See my dear, the thing is, I am not human, so I can do whatever I please to you. You know there is no point arguing with me, now why don’t you just give me what I want already. Let’s stop this foolish arguing.” I freeze, what does he want know. “What do you want from me?” He smiles and pulls me closer. “Oh, just a little kiss.” He pulls me closer and although I struggle with all my might he pulls me into an ice cold kiss. What am I going to do?
