Evil. Just pure evil.

Lauren held the silent phone to her ear, in shock.

He had Claudine. He'd first hurt her, and now she was pretty sure he would hurt Claudine.

And there was nothing Lauren herself could do. All she could think about was what Claudine must be going through, and how Danny got hold of her.

There had to be something Lauren could do.

Anything.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

"This should teach you a lesson" Danny said, evilly, as he sat in the front seat of his car. Danny had pulled into a dark alleyway; the engine was turned off.

Lauren was right. Danny did have Claudine. It was payback time, as Danny called it.

Claudine lay on the back seat of the car, her body helplessly bound with strong, uncomfortable rope. She was crying and screaming, looking over at Danny's evil eyes. However, nobody could hear her.

How could she have fallen for him?

He leant over to her, stroking her smooth face and her beautiful, sleek hair. She had a new bruise on her fore head, delivered by Danny. She shuffled his hand off, frowning.

He smirked.

"Pity" He said, spitting the word out as if it was an ugly swear word.

Claudine looked at him. If it wasn't for the tape across her mouth she would have yelled out exactly what she had to say for him. Danny had things pretty much sussed.

"It's such a shame to let such a beautiful girl go" Danny said.

She usually liked the way he called her beautiful. He used to call it her all the time.

However, this time, things were different.

She struggled once again, fighting floods of tears that she wanted to burst into.

"You're pretty much helpless, you know" Danny said, tapping on the steering wheel. Claudine ignored him. She turned over the other way, facing away from his dark gaze. Tears began to run down her scared face.

Could Danny even drive?

He was right. She WAS helpless, there was no escape. The only chance she had was phoning Lauren. And now nobody would ever know. She was sure she was going to die, and it was all her fault. Now she was sobbing and Danny could hear her.

He didn't smirk. He simply stared out into the darkness, and listened.

What was he turning into?

He knew now that nobody could ever accept him in life ever again.

He wished he could turn back time, right back to where he went after Claudine during the night of Lola's ghost hunt. Only he wouldn't go to find Claudine. He'd stay with Lauren, and all would have been happy and safe. Lauren wouldn't have ever been fighting for her life in hospital. Britannia High would never have had to waste money re-building.

He was almost tempted to untie her and let her go. But something made him stay put. However much he felt Claudine's pain, he just couldn't stop from hurting her.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Lauren was out of the hospital, in the car surrounded by the rest of the group.

She was finally well enough to go home. However, she didn't feel like celebrating.

"Are you sure it was Claudine?" Jez asked Lauren.

"I'm positive"

"And she needed help?"

"She sounded desperate! This has got to be Danny's work. I managed to get the phone number from the phone in the hospital though, have you got a phone on you Jez?" Lauren asked, rushing.

Jez fumbled in his pocket and pulled out his mobile, quickly handing it to Lauren. She quickly tapped in the number.

It began to ring.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

"Looks like our friends are concerned" Danny said to Claudine, whilst holding his vibrating mobile in his hands.

Claudine struggled and attempted shouting again. Danny gave her a fierce whack whilst telling her to shut up, which made her stay still.

Danny answered the phone.

"Let her go Danny!" Lauren's voice rung out in the silent air. Claudine felt a glimpse of hope.

"She deserves what she's getting. She's just a pathetic, stupid spoilt princess" Danny spoke.

"Don't you dare. She's better than you in every way; let me speak to her!" Lauren said down the phone.

There was a brief sigh from Danny. Then Lauren heard a ripping sound and a small cry of pain. Lauren couldn't imagine what Claudine must be going through.

Danny laid the phone next to Claudine's head so she could hear and speak to Lauren.

"Help me" Claudine said, quietly.

"It's alright babe. Were going to save you, I promise you your going to be ok" Lauren said. Claudine sniffed.

"If I die…I just want you to know…I'm sorry I've been so awful. If I could turn back time, I would. But I can't" Claudine said, quietly so Danny couldn't hear.

"Babe, you aren't going to die, we love you Claudine" Lauren said, in tears,

Before Claudine could reply there was a large rev of the engine.

Danny had started the car. He began to drive way past the driving limit through busy streets. Claudine screamed. Now she thought she was definitely dead at the end of all this.

The others could hear Claudine's screaming down the phone.

"Danny stop it! Let her go, please!" Lauren begged down the phone. Danny couldn't hear her.

The group sped up in the car. They needed to find Danny and rescue Claudine.

They had to hurry. The group were all frantic; worried sick about Claudine.

"He's mad! He's going to kill her!" BB yelled.

All they could do was race through the streets. They didn't care about traffic.

All they had to go by was the screaming phone, and terrified thoughts of Claudine and her evil captor.
