The Hostage Chapter 12
I’m starting to look forward to seeing Rob every day now. I’m sure it’s just because I’m so lonely. We’ve been spending so much time together, he’s the only one I’ve had contact with for so long. I can hear Rob arguing with someone on the phone after he leaves my room, I’m starting to believe maybe he is trying to help me. I still dream of being home though.
Rob is still bringing me gifts every day. He’s caught butterflies outside and brought them inside for me. He’s always giving me flowers.
Tonight Rob has decided to give me proof that he is protecting me. He lead me to the computer in the next room and opened up his email account and showed all the emails from this contact that is behind all of this.
I can’t believe this. Why would anyone do this? Rob doesn’t tell me who it is, he says the less I know the better but he wanted to prove to me that he can be trusted. He also shows me the bulletin board that I seen that day I tried to escape. He explains that the contact had given him a lot of the information and some he uncovered while he was watching me.
He is clearly upset, telling me all this. I can see the guilt in his face. He honestly is protecting me! I’m still not sure why I’ve gotten mixed up in this, but I know now that Rob is sincere about everything he says.
I’m in shock. Rob walks over to me, “I’ll do anything to protect you. I’ve cared for you from the first moment I laid eyes on you. I can’t explain it, but it’s like I know we are meant to be together.” I just look into his eyes and know that he is telling the truth. ” I have a boyfriend Rob. I can’t just forget that” Rob says that he isn’t good enough for me and turns to walk away.
I walk back into my room. I need some time to think. Rob follows me in there and says “I’m sorry to drop all this on you, but I’m tired of being the bad guy. You don’t have to stay in this room. I can’t let you leave the compound, but you are free to go in any of the rooms that aren’t locked.”
He grabs my hands and he says ” I just want you to be happy. I don’t know if I can make that happen right away, but I’ll figure a way out of this mess and I will do anything to see you smile again.”
