The Hostage Chapter 7
After reading the plaque, I’m completely confused. I don’t know what to believe. Why would I be in danger? I haven’t noticed anything strange going on. I’m sure it’s just another trick. I can’t just sit here and wait for something to happen. I need to check out this hole in the wall. I’m afraid to put my hand in there, but there is no other choice.
I can’t really feel anything.. Nothing! It’s empty! What is the hole for? I don’t know what to do. Maybe the next time Rob comes in, I can catch him and insist he tell me what is going on. I doubt he will be back today. He has to bring more food in, I’ll be ready for him next time.
I search the bookcase and find it fully stocked with many books. I grab a book and relax on the cot, at least I can read to help pass the time.
Several days pass by, I’m guessing it has been days. Rob has brought me several meals, always Mac and cheese, but he always sneaks in while I’m in the bath or asleep. I’ve gotten into a routine. I wake up, make up my bed, read for several hours, I get cleaned up as best as I can, and usually take a nap to help pass the time. I’m eating the Mac and cheese and fresh fruit that Rob has been leaving in my room.
I’ve gotten a little experience in fixing the tub, it seems to spring a leak pretty often. I don’t mind too much, it gives me something to do. I’m going stir crazy in here. I’d give anything to just talk to someone, I am getting so lonely.
