Hello again, it's me here with a new update! I just want to caution anyone who has a weak stomach or doesn't like violence that there is a bit of violence in this chapter so I'll make little indicators of where it starts and ends for those of you who don't want to read those parts. Also I just wanted to thank everyone who had been reviewing, it really make my day! So feel free to leave me as many as you want at the end of this one. And last but certainly not least a big thank you to my Beta! Now read on….
He looked at me a little more frantically, as me saying his name had set something off in him. He started looking around panicked, he was shaking uncontrollably.
"James!" I repeated a little louder, he snapped his head back to me, but trying to avoid my eyes now. "What are you doing here?" he started mumbling incoherently. I tried to push away the fear that was starting to creep on me and sighed.
"Ok hold on, just stay there for a second." He continued to ramble and fidget with his hands. I grabbed a bra, a t-shirt, and jeans. I didn't really mind getting dressed in front of James, he was obviously not himself right now.
"Okay, now tell me what's wrong." I tried to stay calm and gentle; if he was on something right now he could snap and go crazy if I wasn't careful. He tried to explain but I only caught a few words among his nonsense rambling.
"….She's gone….I don't know….gone…blood…" I sat him down on the couch.
"Who's gone?" he looked at me in the eyes finally.
"She's gone." He repeated.
"Yes I know, who, what happened to her?"
"She gone." Okay I was going to lose it, I stood up and took his shoulders in my hands and shook. I shook him as hard as I could.
"WHO IS GONE!!!! SNAP OUT OF IT!!!!" I stopped shaking him and he seemed to have woken up, he was no longer shaking but a tear slipped down his face.
"She's dead, we killed her, we killed Chloe." He said in a very clear voice. I froze as I felt ice run through my veins; I stood there just looking at him sobbing.
"What?" I managed to squeak out after a very long silence. I sank down to my knees. "What?" I repeated again.
"We killed her, I didn't want to involve you but I didn't know who to go to for help and I thought since you're the president's daughter and you're my friend that maybe you would know what to do." He was still crying. I was trying to focus on his words but I just couldn't.
Was she dead? Was she really dead? No, that couldn't be possible; she was in France with her parents.
"You killed her?"
"No, I mean yes I don't know, it wasn't me I swear I didn't want to hurt her but…"
"But what? What do you mean, who killed her? Who else is involved?" I got up and started to pace around.
"Bella they want me to bring you back." I stopped.
"What do you mean, who? Where?"
"Laurent, he told me that I had to go get you and bring you back to the cabin." He explained the best that he could.
"The cabin where they are, we need to leave now, please just come with me." I knew I was going to regret this, but did I have a choice now? I was officially an accessory to murder after the fact! Because he had confessed to me I was part of this now too. And what would you do if your friend showed up at like three in the morning telling you he had just killed your other friend and needed your help?
"Let's go." I grabbed my phone, sweater, and credit card, sticking it into my back pocket. We snuck out through the secret tunnel and raced back to James car.
"Hey. this is my truck!" I whisper yelled as he hopped into the cab. He started to the truck and it roared to life.
"Yeah I know, Laurent asked me to get it so we could use it to um…move the…body." I shivered; my truck was now involved too. It felt like we had been driving for hours, there were barely any cars on the road but every time we saw head lights we freaked out. Finally James turned into a dirt road and kept going deeper and deeper into the forest. I saw us pass a sign that read Danger zone do not pass unless permitted by warrant.
I saw a little wooden house a few miles further and got the chills as I thought about what awaited me in there. James turned off the engine and I jumped at the lack of noise.
We both climbed out without a word and I followed James to the cabin.. He knocked a special nock and after a few short moments the door opened a crack. I couldn't see who it was but once I heard his voice I was sure. I had only see Laurent a few times but every time I remembered him because of his chilling voice.
"Did you bring her?" he asked. James nodded. The door swung open and Laurent was reviled to me for the first time. He looked horrible as well. But he didn't look to mind that, he actually looked happy. There was a small twisted smile on his face that made me want to gag and his clothes were absolutely drenched in blood. I actually had to swallow down bile when I saw that. There was dirt all over his face and his eyes had a strange glint to them. I had never seen him so alive and happy.
"Come in." he spoke in his slimy voice. I sneered but stepped in after James anyway. Laurent looked me up and down.
I looked around the room, it was dark and dusty, there was no light. I guessed so that it wouldn't draw attention to the house by any passing rangers of lost hikers. There was one window that was covered by a ripped piece of cloth, it didn't cover it completely so it let a small strip of moon light beam through creating a sort of sinister spot light. A couch that looked like it had been attacked by wild animals was pushed up against a wall, it looked to be infested by some small organisms of one type or another. I slowly turned to the other side and noticed that there was a table all alone in the corner and on top of it was a figure.
There in the middle of the table was a human form, it was limp and one of the arms was hanging off the edge along with some of the long brown hair. I couldn't make out the face because it was turned and the rest of the body was hard to make out because it was so tangled and broken. I gasped. It was Chloe.
I took a few steps back and started to gag, I was dry heaving, nothing was coming out because I hadn't eaten anything in a long time. My head was whirling and my vision was blurring. Then I heard a laugh cut through my pain. It was a female laugh, sharp and soprano like.
I tried to stand up straight and calm myself down.
"You are such a drama queen, only one little body and you fly into a fit." I looked in the direction the voice was coming and saw a figure leaning against the door way with their arms crossed. I knew it was a girl I just couldn't see without the light.
"That's a dead body!" I was outraged that this person was telling me I was a drama queen after I had just seen the corps of a friend!
"Whatever." It was then that I realized who this was, they slowly sauntered into the moon light letting it reveal their cruel face.
Her sick laugh cut through the air again as she stepped closer to me. I could make her out now. She looked cleaner then the two boys, though she did have a few droplets of blood on her face and dress. Her strawberry blond curls framing her face, she flicked them back behind her shoulders.
"So surprised to see me?" She asked.
"What…? What are you doing here, what's going on?"
"Poor lost little Bella. Why are you here? Why did you have to move here?"
"Tanya what's going on, what happened to Chloe?"
"I killed her." She laughed.
"Why? Why would you do such a thing?" I was horrified.
"She was in my way." She wasn't laughing now, she had a scary serious look on.
"What do you mean?"
"I wanted to be captain and she was in my way of that." My mouth dropped open, she said it so matter of factly, she wanted to be captain and Chloe was, so she killed her?
"You killed her because you wanted to captain of the dance squad?!"
"Yes." This bitch was crazy!
"But how? When?"
"Why don't you sit down." She gestured to the couch that was next to her. I stayed standing where I was, I was too scared to move. I couldn't believe this was happening to me, a psycho was about to tell me how she committed murder to be captain of a dance squad. And I was just sitting here listening.
Bella took a seat on the ground, fine, I wouldn't force her to sit on the couch. Even though I really wanted to kill her too, I knew that I couldn't. I needed her in order to get out of this without going to jail or dying.
"It all began at Jennie's party." I started.
I can't believe that Edward dumped me! Why would he do that? I mean I know I had just been sucking face with another guy, but he meant nothing to me, I was just bored.
Now here I was sitting alone on a Friday night when I should be at Jennie's Party. Man, now none of them will talk to me I bet, they all hated me anyways, stupid bitches. I can't believe they like that stupid Bella Swan more than me!
That's it I've had it, I'm going to that stupid party.
I hoped into my car and sped over there. Wow there are so many cars! I had to park a few streets down and go throught the back of the house. Grr, this is so annoying I had to ruin my good shoes by going through the small forest that was behind Jennie's house.
(Violence starts here)
"GET AWAY FROM ME YOU FREAK!!" What was that? I heard another shriek and decided to go investigate. That's when I saw it. That guy, Laurent I think his name is, had Chloe up against a tree and was trying to force himself on her. I watched in silence as he covered her mouth and tried to unbutton her pants. Chloe was to already too drunk or high to put up a fight she just slumped against the tree. I couldn't move or make a sound as he raped her. I just watched, I hated her anyway! She was a bad captain.
Maybe I could hold this over her head if she ever tried to anything with me again. When Laurent was finished he zippered his pants, he was about to walk away when Chloe groaned.
(violence ends here, for now)
"I'm going to tell on you!" she cried. Laurent froze and turned back to face her on the ground.
"You're not going to tell anyone." He sounded like he was trying to convince himself more than her.
"Not true. I'm going to tell everyone! My daddy can kill you." She slurred her words, she didn't even know what was going on, this was hilarious! I plan quickly formed in my head.
"Shut up, you stupid slut!" Laurent yelled at her.
"You can't make me!" she yelled back. Time to intervene. I stepped out from behind my hiding place and they both turned to me.
"Who are you?" Laurent asked.
"I could ask you the same question." I snorted.
"Oh, your that Tanya girl."
"Yeah I am, now what are you going to do with her?" We both turned to Chloe who was trying to get up.
"What did you see?!" He sounded panicked.
"Don't have a cow I won't tell anyone about this, I just want to help you."
"Why would you want to do that?" he asked skeptically.
"Cause I hate her and you have a problem that I can help with." He looked confused but nodded.
"Okay, what do we do with her?"
"Help!" Chloe asked again, looking at me. I walked up to her and then leaned down so I was in her face.
"Tanya?" she asked, I could smell the vodka on her breath.
"What is it, you stupid little whore?" I asked her.
"Why are you calling me that?" She whined.
"I'm going to kill you." I laughed. This party was better then I thought it would be!
"Wait, we're going to kill her?" Laurent asked.
"Have a problem with that?" He shook his head no. "Do you know a place where we can bring her?"
"Yeah I know a place in the woods."
Over the next few days we stayed in the cabin, well Lauren would, I had to go to school to keep up appearances. People would get suspicious if I never showed, no one cared about Laurent. When I came back to the cabin Laurent would go out and try and convince his friend James to help us, we needed more muscle.
Chloe was tied up in the basement of the cabin, we tried to keep her unconscious as much as we could, we couldn't kill her right away.
We left out to much evidence behind, we had been sloppy and I was not going to get caught. The one person we needed was Bella Swan, if we got her we could use her to get to the president, he could pardon us, or well at least me.
Chloe moaned from her spot in the corner, she was coming to. I got up and put my magazine down.
"Wakey wakey, sleeping beauty!" I cooed at her. She groaned and tried to lift her head. I grabbed her chin and forced her to look at me. Her eyes were blood shot and watery, she had a black eye and little cuts all over her face from all the blows she had received these past few days.
"Tanya." She whispered.
"Why?" She struggled to get the words out." What are you doing?"
I let go of her chin and stood up straight. Her head lolled to the side but she forced it back up so she could look at me.
"Your pathetic." I spit at her.
"I just want to go home, I won't tell anyone I swear!" She started to cry a little, that only made me laugh.
"You're not going home ever again." She started to cry harder. She probably realized that she really wasn't going to live.
Knock! Knock! Knock!
I went to open the door for Laurent. "She's awake." He noted as he walked in and took a seat on the small couch.
"Yeah genius." He was really thick sometimes.
"Hey I was just starting a fact!" He defended himself; he just sounded like a big oaf. Next time I would be sure to pick a smarter accomplice!
"I don't care!" I sat back down on the chair. "Where's James?" He was supposed to have gone out and talked to James because he was friends with Bella, hopefully he could help us get to her.
"He's on his way."
"He knows how to get here?" This was supposed to be a secluded place. I didn't need some stupid hiker to stumble here!
"We used to come here all the time when we were freshman to get high." He explained. Before cracking open a beer bottle, he took a long chug.
We waited about an hour before we heard the secret knock. I had never talked to James before but I was pretty sure he was just like Laurent. He ambled in not really acknowledging us, he took in a survey on the room, but stopped when his eyes found Chloe in the corner, she was making small noises of pain. He didn't take his eyes off her as he spoke.
"I stole the white house pass from Cullen."
"Good you should leave soon to get Bella, Laurent told you about the plan right?" He nodded still looking over at Chloe.
"What?" I asked him, why was he staring at her?
"Nothing." He glanced at me but then returned to staring at her.
(Violence starts here!)
"Urgh! If this is too much of distraction I'm ending this now!" I could feel the anger build in me as I stormed over to Chloe. I grabbed a fist full of her hair and pulled her head back hard. She let out a screech of pain, but I cut it off with a slap.
"Stupid bitch!" I wrapped my hands around her throat and squeezed, her hands were tied behind her back so she couldn't defend herself. I laughed and squeezed down harder, she started making gagging noises, I applied more pressure. I could see the light in her eyes starting to drain. Her life was leaving! I counted to three in my head and she went limp, I removed my hands from around her neck and her head fell forward, her hair falling creating a curtain around her. I was breathing hard and I could feel how dilated my eyes were from the adrenalin rush.
"Bottle!" I commanded sticking my hand out, I hadn't released all my frustration.
"What?" Laurent asked stupidly. I rolled my eyes.
"Your bottle, hand me your beer bottle!" I heard heavy footsteps and then the weight of the bottle in my hand. I smashed the end of the bottle against the table to that I was now holding a jagged weapon. Suddenly I stabbed the shard into her abdomen, she didn't scream or move in any way, she had no vital signs. Blood started gushing out everywhere, why was there so much blood?
I kept ramming the glass into her and then I stopped. Blood had spattered all over me. I let the bottle fall out of my hand, it broke into a million little pieces of deadly glass.
(Violence ends here for the last time)
"Clean this up!" I didn't have to repeat myself, they scrambled over to where I was and started to mop it up with whatever they could find.
"James, you should probably go get Bella now." He jumped up, he looked really shaken.
"Okay." He took one last look and then bolted out the door. I really hoped he wasn't going to bail on us.
"He better come through." I threatened Laurent.
Oh my god! This bitch was crazy! I had a feeling I wasn't going to make it out alive! Oh Edward, where are you?! I shouldn't have left my room, I wanted to be back in Edward's arms.
AHAHHHHHH! Scary no? well please let me know what you think! A lot of you sign up for my alerts but don't review, which is fine but I would love to know what you thinking. So now if R&R I'm curious! Also I started reading this really good book called exit here check it out!
