It's two o'clock in the morning as three best friends stumble out of the club they've been drinking and dancing in all night long. All three are very attractive young women. One is a tall leggy very well built blond with long straight hair, that looks natural in color. The next in height is a brunette whose complexion is a rosy alabaster. Her figure is not quite as voluptuous as the blond's; her breasts might be a bit larger but she's narrower in the hips and shorter in height by a couple of inches. The third is barely five foot tall with spiky night black hair with a slight figure, but there is just something about her...
Little do the three young women know they have been watched all evening long and from all angles. The club they've spent the evening in is owned by some very evil individuals who are looking for certain types of men young and women for their various enterprises. The entire club is full of hidden cameras in every room in the building, even the bathroom stalls.
It was the leggy blond that first attracted their attention, but once the other two were seen with her there was no doubt that all three would be watched, followed and checked out to see if their sudden disappearance would cause too many problems. This investigation will only take a day or so, maybe even less, and if all checks out, they will disappear and never be seen again.
"Bella will you please come on! The car will be here any minute! If we don't get there quickly we'll have to stand in line for hours and hours" Alice yells dramatically. She and Rosalie are standing in Bella's kitchen sharing a beer.
"Calm down SS you're going to bust a seam if you keep up that pressure" snickers the blond beauty standing there with Alice.
"Rose, why do you call me SS?" Alice demands to know scoffingly.
"Because you're such a Short Stack" Rose smiles indulgently to her friend.
They both laugh and are still laughing when Bella finds them. "What's so funny?"
"Rose has finally explained to me why she calls me SS" Alice says.
Bella laughs, "Oh, you mean Short Stack?"
Alice's eyes widen and her mouth is open. She closes it, then opens it again like a fish. Then she's sputtering, "You knew what it was and you didn't tell me". She's shrieking by the time she's finished uttering those few words.
Both Bella and Rosalie are smiling broadly. Alice finally just shakes her head and shrugs her tiny shoulders, "Ok you two, let's get going. I don't want to stand in line all night long, especially in these new 5 inch heels when I could be dancing in them!"
"But they're such lovely shoes Alice! I bet they cost you at least a month's pay!" Bella remarks looking down at her friend's feet. "I wondered why you were almost eye level with me now!" Again, Bella and Rosalie smile but this time it's with love for their tiny sister.
"You bet your sweet ass they would have if I hadn't felt there was going to be an unadvertised 50% sale off at my favorite shoe store!" Alice is beaming.
Alice and Rosalie headed out first leaving Bella to turn on the security alarms and lock the door of their beautiful home.
Alice hired a car to drive them, and made arrangements for the driver to be waiting for them when they leave the club. "It's so worth it not to have to worry about what kind of a creep would be driving the cab we'd have to take otherwise" Alice had explained when she told her sisters what she'd done. "All we have to do is text him that we're coming out and he'll be waiting for us at the curb."
The club is brand new, and this is the first night it's open to the public. The advertising firm Rosalie works for, got invitations for the ground opening even though they didn't get the contract. Rosalie had said it was going be Shark Night for sure with every advertiser in town there schmoozing it up.
The trio felt sure it would be an entertaining night.
Twenty minutes later, they are standing in line for admission to "Captured". Twenty minutes more and as many "I told you so" from Alice, they are finally allowed in, and they didn't have to pay the cover charge. When Bella asked why, she was told that all the beautiful women were being given free admission the first three nights of the opening.
Inside the Club, the atmosphere is already thick with the angst that a new club seems to always have because people don't know what to expect. Alice always takes the lead when entering a new place as her sixth sense always seems to know where the best place to sit will be; Bella and Rose have just learned to go with it after all these years.
The three friends met in college at a "how to deal with grief" group sponsored by the college. It turned out that of all the students who'd shown up for the group, only three had lost anyone due to death. It was heartbreaking to hear their stories compared to the others who'd stood up to "share" their losses.
Bella's parents had been killed in a car crash on the same day she'd left for college, Rosalie was 11 years old when her parents had been in one of the airliners that crashed into the Twin Towers, and Alice had been 10 ½ when her parents and her older brother were at work in the Tower that the first plane crashed into.
After the group was dismissed, Rosalie stopped Bella and Alice and asked if they could go get coffee or something because she'd like to talk. Besides the grief they shared over the loss of their entire families, they discovered that they had much in common. They didn't care if they had brilliant careers, they just wanted to be able to do something. They each had received an obscene amount of money through the loss of their families and didn't really care about that either; they just wanted their families back. None of the three knew where they wanted to go after they graduated from college and not one of them cared about getting married and having families of their own. They decided it was because they didn't want to take the chance that something dreadful would happen to them and cause their children or spouses to suffer as they had.
As a result of this meeting, they felt they'd found a family again in the three of them, and decided to become roommates that very night. As it happened, Bella's lawyer had found an apartment for her so she wouldn't have to deal with dorm life. It had 3 bedrooms so it definitely would be large enough for the three of them.
Over the course of the next four years, they had become almost inseparable and decided that after they graduated they would continue living together. They were after all "sisters" now, though they never fought and argued with each other as sisters born of the same parents often do. They were sweet and considerate to each other because they knew the pain of not being able to say "I'm sorry" if something dreadful were to happen to any of them.
Bella told her "sisters" that she wanted to spend her inheritance on buying them a house where ever they decided to settle down. Once they determined where they wanted to live and if the job market would be able to support them, they contacted a real estate broker and set up appointments to look at homes. Money was really no object and they were free to really find what they would be happy in.
The house they decided to buy was in the suburbs in an exclusive gated community. Yeah it was a pain to have to drive to work an hour both ways, and to have to park downtown, but it was so worth it to be away from the hassle of town.
Rosalie, who always had a "thing" for any kind of combustion engine told the other two that she was buying each of them vehicles with her "blood" money, and Alice said she'd decorate and furnish the entire house with hers.
They each were able to find jobs that suited them, ones in which they wouldn't stand out just as members of the "herd" as Rosalie referred to their co-workers. They were happy and had no pressure applied to them and kept to just themselves.
It was because of this that they would not be missed quickly and make them perfect targets for evil men with even more evil plans for such young women.
The hired car delivered the trio to their home with no problem, other than the fact driver of the car for the return trip was not an employee of the company who drove for the girls when they came into town to go clubbing. They were so drunk that they had to be roused by the driver when they'd reached the community gates so they could give him the card key to open the gate. They didn't even realize until later that he'd not given it back to them. However, they were all so hung over they really didn't care, but they should have.
That night, or rather very early the next morning, stealthy figures broke the locks on the front, back and side doors after cutting the power to the house and disabling the alarm systems.
Each of the young woman were grabbed, tied up and gagged before they knew what was happening to them. They were injected with something that acted immediately and sent them into deep unconsciousness.
It would be almost a week before anyone realize that the trio was missing.
The driver of the hired car was found shot to death and it was suspected it was a drug deal gone very bad – even though that driver had never used drugs in his entire life and there were none found in his blood.
The club where they would have last been seen, mysteriously caught on fire and burned to ground killing several people who'd been trampled trying to get out and several who just couldn't be located within the wreckage of the club.
No one would ever link any of the disappearances together. None of them had family members or friends who would miss them. All of them, Alice, Bella and Rosalie included, just became statistics. Faceless humans never to be seen again.
