The Bad Boy Has A Daughter. By Chimdi Jane Samuel. Chapter Twenty-One.
*Anna’s point of view*
I was tired, my bones were tired, my legs were tired, my eyes were tired, every part of me felt it was going to shut down any time soon. But I had to keep going. I was almost at Noah’s house, I could see the building now, and I ran faster to get there on time, to at least save that five seconds.
I had been running since the bus stopped at the usual end of the Street, I didn’t want to spend any time left. Drew would surely have sent for Casey thinking I was still in Ryder’s car.
And if he got his hands on her, Noah was done for. I thought about that handsome face and only hoped he was alright. I hadn’t seen him since the beginning of the race, and I silently wished he was alright.
Noah was a strong person no doubt, but sometimes life tries us with the scariest of challenges. And we could only hope we make it through.
With shaking legs, I ran up the stairs to Noah’s apartment and opened the door before slamming it shut behind me, not bothering to use the lock.
I ran to the room, noticing everything was still as we left it. No chairs unturned, no fire, no bullet holes. Everything was the same. It means Drew hadn’t gotten here.
Stepping into the room, I saw Casey sleeping sweetly on the bed her teady bear buried between her arms, she looked so oblivious to anything that was happening around her and I could only smile. Such an innocent child.
Carefully I walked up to her and shook her gently causing her to open her eyes.
“Casey! Hey wake up!” I said, glancing around the room for mine and Casey’s bag.
“Anna, what time is it? Me is tired, no want to go to school now” She mumbled half asleep, but I just ignored, picked up the bag and started shoving some clothes into Casey’s.
“Where we going? Where is Daddy?” She shot up from the bed when she saw me packing.
“Dad is coming ok? He just went to get something really quick he asked us to leave before him” I went to the bathroom and picked the toothbrushes and sponge.
“When would daddy come?” She got up from the bed coming to stand beside me.
“Soon. Come on put on this quick” I shoved a blouse and a pair of short in her hand, before placing her teady bear in the bag, then went to the sitting room to pick up all her books from the table.
“Where are we going? I wanna see dad” I turned to Casey and saw she hadn’t moved, and tears threatened to fall from her eyes.
“Hey, look at me” her green eyes met mine. “We are going to my friend’s place to stay for a while, this building isn’t good. So they want to fix it. Dad went to buy something and he’ll meet us there ok?” Wow I was a good liar.
We needed to get out of here fast. I glanced at my phone, It was past two. The last time I had checked the time was when I was in the bus. It was two at that time. I needed to be quick.
I went to the bathroom and peeled off Noah’s jacket and decided to change to something else. Running to his closet to find something to wear.
My hands were shaking out of fear and anxiety but I couldn’t let Casey see that, she didn’t need to know we were in a haste to leave, if not she’ll be scared. And I couldn’t leave knowing Casey was scared.
I found a tee shirt and wore it, of course Noah didn’t have any bras so I made sure to put on one of his singlet. Then racked the closet for a smaller jeans, I found one. But they still looked big, and the shirt was reaching my knee.
Awkward, but I looked cute in it.
My hair was obviously still wet so I didn’t even bother loosing the bun. I observed the wound on my head, the bleeding had stopped for a while. But it still hurt like hell.
“What happened to the building?” Casey asked immediately I stepped into the room, I picked up my bag, shoved Noah’s book in it and a few of his clothes. Then I find my medical kit and shoved it in the bag too.
How were we going to get to Clary’s house, I wondered, it was a little far from here, Clary’s parents were rich.
Wait. Noah mentioned something about some money under the bed.
“The drainage is bad, now put on the clothes ok?” I went under the bed, breathing heavily, saw the money and placed it in the bag. Then I walked to Casey and helped her get her clothes on.
Casey hugged me immediately, and sniffed, I knew she wanted to cry but was holding it in. So I stopped panicking and held her close, giving her a small kiss on the head.
We had to get out of here! A small voice said in my mind. So I picked Casey up and balanced her on my hip.
“Look baby, it’s only for a while ok. We’ll be back soon” I kissed her forehead before taking another glance at the room, searching if I was forgetting anything then moving to the sitting room, with Casey in my arms.
I picked up the bags, putting one at my back and holding the other with my free hand and left the room.
Walking into the sitting room, I rose my head and that was when I froze in shock.
No! No no!
Standing there in the sitting room was someone, whose face I’ll never forget, black hair, small eyes that stared deep in my soul. Those eyes held power and I knew by just a look at his guys, I was dead.
Tattoos similar to Noah’s, surrounded his arms, strong arms that could grab unti me with ease.
Beside him was about three men I couldn’t out run and there was that sinister smile on his lips.
I couldn’t speak, I couldn’t move. It was as if I had become a statue.
All of my hardwork. My jumping from the car and Into the river and running here from that one person was all in vain.
All in vain. In the end he had caught up to us, my heart jumped in fear when he took a step closer to us. With every step my heart hammered and the image if his boys removing my clothes made me take another step backwards.
Casey noticing the tension, rose her head and saw them. I noticed the way she tightened her grip on me.
“Anna” She shook me. “Who is this?”
Drew smiled, looking at Casey with that evil smile.
“Hello beautiful” At his voice my bones shook in fright “Sorry for not introducing myself earlier on, I’m Drew Goodman”
