Chapter Five Double Life
K held Monica close by her shirt, "You are extremely stubborn, but so am I and don't think that by stone walling me, I will let you go, and don't think that by stalling for time that someone will find you. I will get what I want, one way or another." He threatened, "Last time I left you to wonder what I did to you, but this time you will see and feel everything!" He raised his voice, "TAS!" He called.
Tas entered the room casually, and crossed his arms, "Yeah?"
"She's all yours," K said, shoving her backwards and walking out of the room.
Tas turned to face Monica, "We meet again."
Monica wasn't sure what to make of this, "So are you going to try to beat me or rape me?" She asked, but received no verbal response. Tas advanced towards her and he reached a hand out to her which she pushed away, "Stay the hell away from me!" She yelled.
On the other side of the door K grinned as he heard the tell-tale signs of a physical fight.
"No!" He heard Monica yell, "Let go of me!"
K snickered as he heard the soft thump and the sound of skin hitting skin at speed. He smiled at what he heard and then walked away.
Monica was now on her back again and Tas was on top of her, "Get off me!" She yelled as she tried everything she could think of to get out from under the man.
Tas held her down and pinned her wrists above her head, "Listen to me," he hissed into her ear."
"No!" She yelled back, and tried to pull her hands free as he leaned down.
Tas put his hand over her mouth to silence her but she bit him, "Ah- BITCH!" He yelled and then held her shoulder down, his arm against her throat, "Listen to me Monica," He said into her ear as she writhed beneath him.
"Let go of me!"
"Stop moving!" He yelled back and held her harder, "I'm not going to hurt you." He said and when Monica stopped moving he let her arms go and sat up once he was sure she wasn't going to hit him
"What?" She asked in disbelief and sat up also.
"I'm an undercover cop okay? But I don't have access to my team back in LA because I'm in this too deep. I'm going to help you, but I need you to talk to my team and my boss and tell them everything that's happening here and everything I am about to tell you.
"Okay, sure, so long as I get out of here alive."
"I'll do my best," Tas said sincerely, "My crew think I'm dead, they don't know where I am, and I haven't been able to check in for over six months. My crew was ordered to drop the case if I didn't check in, because to them, if I don't check in, then I must be dead."
"How long have you been undercover?"
"I'm not sure, I can't remember." He said sheepishly, and upon seeing the shocked look on Monica's face he added, "I'm really deep undercover."
"Do you have family?"
"Wife and a little girl."
"Do they know that you're undercover? Do they know that you're alive?" She asked.
Tas shook his head, "No, my team will have notified them when I didn't check in, and since I haven't made contact, they will have presumed me dead."
"What's your real name?" Monica asked.
"Agent James Carter."
They sat there in silence for a while.
"Can you help me get out of here Carter?"
"I don't know. I don't really have much influence over the decisions that get made, the most I do is pitch ideas and do the dirty work. I've got more than enough evidence on this case, but I've lost contact with my team."
"Carter, if you can get me out then I will find your team and contact them. I can tell them where you are and what's happening"
"Tas." He corrected, "Don't get used to calling me Carter Agent Reyes," He directed, "And what are you goner do from down here? Tap Morse code on the walls and hope some body hears?" He said, becoming sarcastic.
"You've given up hope." Monica stated, and then addressed his question, "If you can help me-"
"I can't help you!" He hissed.
"Then get the FBI involved."
"How am I supposed to do that?!" He asked.
"I don't know! Just find a way!" Monica argued.
Tas abruptly got up and then left, leaving Monica bewildered and panicked. The door slammed shut and Monica curled up on the bed, hugging her knees and biting her fingernails as she thought about her situation and how she could get out of it.
She felt paranoid that every noise she heard was one of the men coming to attack her again.
Out in the main room.
K turned around when Tas came back into the room.
"That was fast." He said suspiciously.
"Yeah, well," He stalled, trying to think up an excuse, "It doesn't take much to get her to yell does it?" He said and the others snickered.
"You're done with her already?"
"Well not exactly 'done' as such, but rather 'warmed up'" Tas said, making things up as he went along.
"Ah, leaving her wonder and panic and await your return? Nice" K approved.
Tas sat down on a lounge chair, "You know, I was thinking, why don't we go to the FBI, and tell them that we have their agent hostage, and we can name our price for her life?" Tas suggested.
"What makes you think they will bargain with us?" K asked.
"We could give them proof that we're serious, send them a tape with what will happen to her if they don't pay," Roam suggested.
"Yeah, and we could get like, millions from them!" D added.
"Alright alright," K said and he started to formulate a plan.
