I don't own Touched By An Angel.

"You hold the answers deep within your own mind. Consciously, you've forgotten it. That's the way the human mind works. Whenever something is too unpleasant, too shameful for us to entertain, we reject it. We erase it from our memories, but the imprint is always there." A male angel named Alexander had told Monica. Monica had never understood the statement until her most recent assignment. She was sent to a man's home for this assignment. This man had medium-length, dark-brown hair, dark brown eyes, a striped t-shirt, black jeans, sneakers, and a peach skin-tone. He approached Monica with a look that was partially malice and partially lust.

"What's your name doll? My name is Ezaiya." He asked the red-head in front of him.

"Monica." Monica answered with fear.

"Well Monica, you're a part of my collection." The said with lust in his eyes as he tied Monica's hands together.

"FOLLOW ME! NOW!" He barked, going downstairs where he imprisoned people as his toys. He tied Monica's hands and legs to the far right of the cellar against a table that was on top of bars on the floor, and then he went back upstairs.

"You're his newest victim huh?" A woman with green eyes, long red hair peach skin, and a red dress asked.

"I suppose so yes." Monica answered with fear. Suddenly a female voice cried out in pain from across the room, which is when Monica and the woman looked over in that direction.

"Clarissa I told you that I would release you tomorrow! Not any sooner! Now be a good girl and eat your food." The man screamed, slapping her. Clarissa whimpered in pain as she ate the food she was told, and when the man realized that Monica and Audrey were watching he became very angry.

"What do you two think you're doing?" He screamed, storming over to Audrey and slapping her across the face. Audrey made a soft grunt in response to the pain, as she had gotten used to him beating her. She felt bad for Monica, as she was the newest victim, and the poor thing would be in the most pain when he beat her.

"She's not worthy of your pity! If I catch you pitying her again then I'll have to punish you!" The man screamed at them as he slapped Monica as well.

Monica screamed out in pain as he hit her, and Ezaiya smirked when he heard her cry out in pain.

"Please stop!" She begged, which Ezaiya laughed at.

"Awww, you're just too cute. You have to eat though." The man taunted as he threw food at Monica. Monica grabbed the food and ate it, fearing another beating if she didn't. The man laughed and walked back up the stairs, leaving them alone. Monica was crying at this point, and she began to pray.

"Oh god, please send help. I don't know how much more of this I can take." She silently prayed. The father heard her request and he sent Tess as well as Andrew to find Monica. Back on Earth Ezaiya had fallen asleep, and his victims were able to relax; at least for now.

"Monica, you should try to get some sleep before he comes in here and beats us again." Clarissa informed her. Audrey lay back against the wall and closed her eyes as she tried to sleep. Audrey lay back against the chair she was in and closed her eyes as she too tried to sleep. Now that she was alone, Monica looked around for anything that might get her free. Unfortunately, there was nothing there, so Monica couldn't do anything to free her-self, or the unfortunate souls that were trapped in the cellar, which was disappointing to her.

Monica wished that she could sleep so she could escape this horrible reality for a while, but Angels don't need sleep. She sighed and watched the other people trapped down here sleep, but she could tell that it wasn't a peaceful sleep for either of them. Monica sighed as there was nothing she could do but watch, and she prayed for help once again, as she was desperate to get away from this place. Several hours passed since then, and everyone else was awake. Soon Ezaiya walked into the cellar, and as promised he freed Clarissa.

"Go on, get out of here! Be warned that if you tell anyone about this I will hunt you down!" He yelled at her as he shoved her into the wall. Clarissa moaned in pain as she climbed out of the cellar, and soon she ran outside where she was then running for her life. Audrey looked the other way mainly because she had a fear of being beaten again, and Ezaiya walked over to Monica with malice in his eyes.

"What is it with you?" He growled, grabbing her arm. Monica screamed in pain, but he didn't stop.

"You should be begging for me to let you go but instead you remain silent! Do you want to be trapped here forever?" He screamed while slapping her.

"You are an evil man! What has happened to you to make you this full of hate?" Monica cried out in pain.

"Shut up!" The man screamed as he hit her harder. Monica screamed again and again as he beat her for an hour, until she finally had had enough. Monica sat there with a look of despair in her eyes which Ezaiya laughed at.

"Finally you shut your trap. You should learn your place woman." He growled as he threw food at both Monica and Audrey. They both ate the food and he sat and waited for one of them to beg.

"STOP IT! STOP IT! LEAVE HER ALONE! PLEASE!" Audrey begged in tears.

"I hear you begging but why doesn't she beg?" Ezaiya laughed.

"I don't know! Leave her alone please!" Audrey begged, hating to see what he was doing to Monica who had obviously given up hope. Monica closed her eyes and prayed to God to send help for both of them, and when she opened her eyes Ezaiya was gone.
