A/N: Sorry, it's been awhile. School is stressful and this is the first opportunity I've had to write anything other than papers. WARNING: There will be sex in this chapter, but not very much.
My head was aching and my mouth felt dry and cottony. I don't know how long I was in the room before Jason came back in, but I really had to pee and my stomach was growling.
"So, little Bella," he said, "are we going to be more cooperative now?"
"Go to hell," I muttered.
"Bella," he sighed, "when are you ever going to learn?" He slapped me across the face and leaned close, so his nose was almost touching mine. "That son of a bitch you were running around with is going to be sorry he ever laid eyes on you. He may say he loves you now, but he won't by the time I'm through with him—and with you. He's going to see you for the worthless piece of trash you are."
"You're supposed to be in prison," I growled.
"I was let out on parole for good behavior," he sneered. "I knew I needed to get out so I could teach you a lesson. You're going to rue the day you ever left me."
"Why can't you just leave me alone?" I cried, jerking on the ropes.
"Because I loved you and you left me!" he bellowed.
"You didn't love me! You were obsessed with me! Emmett loves me. He would never hurt me."
"Well, even if that is true, he won't love you anymore when I send him the video of you begging me to fuck you. He'll have to watch as I bring you to orgasm over and over again, and he'll be helpless to stop it."
"I'll never give in to you!"
"Just wait and see." He untied the ropes and took me into the bathroom so I could use the toilet. He stood over me and watched me to make sure I didn't escape. After I finished, he took me back to the bedroom and tied me to the bed again, then left the room. I was alone once more.
Bella had been missing for two days now. Everyone was doing everything they could to find her. Renee had flown in from Jacksonville with her husband, Phil. I felt more helpless than ever. She is my world and I can't do anything to save her. Dad had placed a large award for any clues on Bella's whereabouts, and an even larger one for Bella's safe return. So far, nothing useful had come up.
Jason didn't do anything for a few days. He mostly left me alone, except for feeding me or standing over me while I used the bathroom. On the fourth day I was there, he took me into the bathroom and made me shower while he watched. He didn't touch me at all yet. When I was done, he took me back into the bedroom and tied me to the bed, ignoring me when I asked for clothing.
I could only watch as he set up a video camera. I tried everything from begging, to crying, to screaming, but it had no effect on him. He ignored me until he had the video camera set up exactly as he wanted.
"Say hello, Bella," he said. I snarled at him, and he smirked. He stripped off his clothing out of view of the camera and came over to the bed. Sitting down next to me, he fondled my breasts. I struggled to get away from him, but the ropes were too tight.
"Let go!" I yelled. He smirked and leaned down to whisper in my ear.
"If you don't cooperate, I'm going to kill your boyfriend. But before I let him die, I'm going to make him watch me rape you and his sweet little sister. He's going to die listening to her screams, and he's going to blame it all on you. But if you play nice, I'll let both of them live, and I won't touch her. He's still going to hate you, but at least he won't blame his sister's rape on you." I shuddered at the truth of the words in his voice.
"You'll never get near Alice."
"Are you willing to bet everything on that? You never thought I would get near you again, but I did, and your father is the fucking Chief of Police. How can you guarantee I won't get to Alice? No one knows what I look like." Several tears slid down my face. I couldn't protect Alice. No one could, if Jason decided to go after her. Maybe if I went along with him, he would leave her alone.
"Okay," I finally said. "I'll do whatever you want. Just leave them alone."
"Sure, sure. Now, we're going to make a nice little tape for your boyfriend. You're going to do your best to convince him that you're fucking me willingly. If you get it right the first time, we won't have to do it over again."
"Just get it over with."
Jason went back to the camcorder and restarted the tape. When he came over to me this time and started fondling me, I didn't pull away, even though he disgusted me beyond belief. "Respond," he hissed at me. When he pinched and rolled my nipple I let out a little moan and arched into him. "Good girl." He spread my legs and climbed on top of me, positioning his dick at my entrance. I knew that once he did this, there would be no going back. Emmett wouldn't want me after another man had me.
Jason didn't go easy. He slammed into me and I cried out in pain. I was completely dry and he hadn't even used lube or a condom. It hurt worse than anything at that moment. It felt like he was ripping out my insides. He started thrusting, and I didn't have to do much. Apparently my cries of pain sounded enough like pleasure to him that he didn't feel the need to remind me to act.
The only blessing was that it only lasted for a few minutes. He came quickly and got off of me. Turning toward the camera, he smirked. "She's mine, Emmett. She wanted me." He went over and turned the camera off, then turned back to me, an evil grin on his face.
"Let's get you cleaned up, Bella," he said, falsely soothing. He got a washcloth from the bathroom and cleaned me up while tears ran down my face and into my hair. My body ached from his intrusion and I just wanted to crawl into a hole and die. He left me tied to the bed and left the cabin. He was gone for quite awhile, but eventually he came back.
It's been three days now. Bella's absence has taken a toll on everyone who knows her. The minutes drag by like hours, and the hours go by as days. It's excruciating not being able to hear her voice, or know if she's all right. I can't even think about what she might be going through at the hands of that bastard, or I'll go crazy. When we find him, he's going to die.
"Emmett!" Alice called. "You have a package." I made my way into the kitchen from the living room.
"Who's it from?" I asked.
"It doesn't have a return address. Open it. Maybe you'll know who sent it to you when you know what it is."
"You open it, Ali." I heard the package being opened delicately.
"It's a tape." She sounded a little confused. "Why would anyone you know send you a tape?"
"I don't know. Put it in the VCR. You can watch it and tell me what's happening."
"All right." I followed her into the living room, and she put the tape in. We settled on the couch. As soon as it started, Ali screamed out.
"Ali, what is it?" I demanded.
"It's Bella. Oh, Emmett, she's naked and tied to a bed." Alice sounded like she was close to tears.
"What else do you see?"
"She's in what looks like a cabin. Someone else just walked into the sight of the camera. It's probably that Jason asshole. He's—," she stopped. I was about to ask her to continue, but I heard the soft moan—my Bella's moan—and then the scream.
"Ali, tell me what's going on!" I yelled.
"He's having sex with her," she said with a tear-filled voice.
"He's raping her."
"I think so. She's acting like she's enjoying it, but I bet he threatened her to make her act like that."
"That son of a bitch."
"She's mine, Emmett. She wanted me." I heard the triumphant voice come from the television and then the tape stopped. I stood up and stumbled over to the wall. Drawing back my fist, I hit the wall as hard as I could, howling out my anger. NO ONE touched my Bella and lived to tell about it. He would die.
"Emmett." Alice's small hand rested on my arm. "We need to take this tape to Charlie. He might be able to get something off of it."
I thought of something then. "Get the packaging. It was mailed, right?"
"Yes." She sounded confused.
"Where is it postmarked from?"
She gave an excited cry and ran to get the packaging. "Not far from here. A little town. If Bella's in a cabin, we can find out where she is."
"Let's get this to Charlie."
I drove Emmett and myself to the police station, where Charlie was. He couldn't bear to go home except when he had to, so he barely left the station. We gave him the tape and the packaging, and he got right on it. I warned him ahead of time what the tape contained and he made us wait in the waiting room while he viewed it and ran over it for evidence.
He came out moments later. "There's only one cabin within twenty miles of that town. We're going there now."
"I'm going with you," I said.
"Not a chance, son. It could be dangerous."
"I want to be there for Bella. I won't be in the way, I promise."
"All right, let's go."
"Me too," Alice piped up.
"No," I said. "You need to tell the family what happened."
"Fine," she said reluctantly. "Just bring her back safe."
I got in the cruiser and we left. The town was only about an hour away from Forks. Charlie and the other two cars left their lights off so we didn't alert anyone to our arrival. Charlie called in for state backup because he couldn't actually arrest anyone in that town. We found the cabin shortly, but we parked far enough away that Jason wouldn't know we were there. Charlie told me to wait in the cruiser, and since I couldn't see what the hell was going on anyway, I decided that would be best. As much as I wanted to rush in and save my Bella, and be her knight in shining armor, I wouldn't risk her safety like that.
It seemed like forever, but really it was probably only a few minutes before I heard a man shouting and the officers reading him his rights. I got out of the cruiser and made my way toward the group of them.
"Jason," I snarled when I was standing in front of the source of the swearing.
"Emmett," he growled in reply. "Did you like the tape? Bella was screaming for me." I pulled back my fist and hit him square in the mouth. I felt his jaw break and I was satisfied. I heard one of the cops mutter about how it was justice served.
"Emmett?" I heard my name tentatively called. I turned toward the sound of my angel's voice.
"Bella," I breathed, half-running toward her. She ran, sobbing, into my arms, her arms wrapping around my neck. "Bella, I love you. I'm so sorry I wasn't there to protect you."
"Emmett," she bawled, "I'm so sorry! He made me do it. I swear I didn't want him!"
"Bella, baby, it's not your fault. I would never blame you for that. He'll never touch you again, love."
"He threatened Alice if I wouldn't do it. He said he would rape her and kill her. I couldn't let that happen." My heart squeezed in anguish for what she went through, and swelled with love for the wonderful person that she was.
"Baby, I never believed for a minute that you wanted it. I'm just so sorry I didn't save you."
"I love you Emmett. I don't blame you for anything."
"Let's get you home baby. Everyone is worried."
I wrapped my arm around her shoulders and held her close as we went back to Charlie's cruiser together. It was time we went home. The state police would take care of Jason.
A/N: I'm so sorry this chapter was so long in coming. I think there is only going to be one more after it, but if I decide to do more than one more chapter, it will be awhile. Next chapter, Emmett and Bella finally work everything out!
