Thanks for everyone for being patient. Down to the final three. If I make it into the top two my original story My Secret Life could be published. Thanks for everyone who has voted and supported me during this time. Here is a chapter thou it is short but I couldn't leave you hanging for too long.
I'm panicked as I search for Ana. Why her security couldn't see her safely into the hospital eludes me. I will have to talk to sawyer about the newest guards. As the hospital is locked down everyone is searching for my Ana. I open several closed doors not finding her. I open the last door in this corridor and gasp. Ana is gagged, blindfolded and tied up. I sit and pull her to me. I undo all bindings and she grabs me in an attempt not to let me go.
I don't know how long we are on the floor but we need to make a move. We reschedule Ana's appointment for a few days time and Taylor drives us home. I've been in two minds whether to tell Ana what Welch has found. I want to keep her home and safe but I'm not sure Ana will agree.
Ana gives me that look that she knows I'm keeping something from her and I know if I don't say something soon she will just ask me.
I wait until we get home before pulling her into my study. Her eyebrow rises in question and as I walk to the sofa I sit and pull her down with me. To have my arms around her while I tell her will help the both of us.
"Ana, we need to discuss this newest threat. We have narrowed it down to a few people but I need to know if you can think of anyone that would want to hurt you or want you in any way?"
"I can't think of anyone. I rarely dated in university and the guys I spoke to were in my classes. I had a few assignments in mixed groups but none stand out. Why?"
"Welch believes it could be someone who interacted with you. There are a few employees that somehow missed the security checks when they were employed. This will take a day or two and I would prefer if you work from home until this is sorted out. I don't want to risk you or the baby. I'm so proud that you didn't do anything to extreme back at the hospital and believe me that will not happen again." I explain.
Ana has dropped her head to my chest so I slowly raise her face so I can see her eyes. They are red and teary. I hat seeing her upset.
"I'll stay home until you say it's safe to go back to work," Ana whispers. "I'm going to check on the kids, are you coming?"
"In a moment, I just have to check an email Welch sent me." I watch Ana leave and I move to my laptop and open the email. There are three photos of possible suspects. All around Ana's age and I'll have each followed to determine who is out there to hurt my Ana.
For some particular reason one photo stands out to me. I think I've seen him before but can't place where. I'm distracted by the laughter I hear coming from outside my office. I close my laptop and head out to enjoy family time.
After a few hours playing with the kids we sit down for a family dinner. I read books before bedtime and once they are down I can now have playtime with my wife. I enter our bedroom and find Ana resting on our bed rubbing her stomach. I lay down next to her and put my hand on her stomach. It amazes me that there is a life growing inside my beautiful wife. I hold Ana in my arms and suggest we have a bath. I'm told soon as she is enjoying this time of just relaxing and being held. It's not long before I realise Ana has fallen asleep and I move her gently to get her under the covers. Ana stirs and grabs for my hand. Bath time can wait. I strip off quickly and join Ana in bed encasing her in my arms. Ana settles quickly. Tomorrow security will be even tighter but its for the best. I find it doesn't take long for me to fall asleep.
...talking in front of the university graduates...shaking hands of the students receiving their certificates...Ana's hand fits nicely in mine...the face of the student behind her pops into view...that face...
I wake and realise why this face is familiar. It's one of the three Welch sent through to me. Son of a bitc... I think he may be one to watch out for. As I try to leave Ana her grip tightens on my hand. Seems like I'm needed and this will have to wait until morning. I lay my head back down and try to sleep again.
