There was one day left before the Wedding and all the men in the house were going out for Skyler’s bachelor party, and normally the girls in the cult don’t have parties, but Margret arranged for people to come over to the house, to do our manicures and pedicures, we were also getting messages. It was going to be a nice day in.
We sat in the living room with our feet in little foot tub while the girls started our fingers.
“So, how excited are you for tomorrow?” Ali asked me.
“I’m pretty excited. Extremely nervous, though.” I admitted.
“I am excited as well. Now two of my sons will be married. I am just waiting on the other one.” Margret looked over at Ali. I didn’t know that Skyler and Jordan had anther brother..
“Well, you probably don’t have to wait that long, Jordan proposed last night.” She said, half squealing with excitement.
“Oh my god. I am so happy for you Ali.” I smiled at her, I would have given her a hug but the lady was still working on my nails.
“Yay! I am so happy that I have two wonderful daughter-in-laws to be.” She smiled at us. “It’s been a lot more cheerful since you two have gotten here. As much I as love my husband and sons, it nice to have anther girl presence around.” She said to us. I felt bad knowing that Skyler, Ali and I were leaving her alone again in a day.
“Margret. How did you adjust to this way of living?” I asked her bluntly.
“Well. It certainly was hard at 1st. I hated my husband. He forced me to do things I didn’t want to do, he abused me, and locked me away from everyone I have ever cared about, he put me down; and made me feel worthless. But I soon realized that he did all those things cause he didn’t know anything else. And after awhile, I became obedient, he didn’t have to force me or hurt me, he started speaking kinder, and actually caring for me. The cult wants women to be slaves for men, but no matter how strong, or how much a man hurts his women, if they fall in love with her… She has the upper hand. You learn that as you get older. But having the upper hand isn’t just about control, it is about love as well. If he falls for you, chances are you will fall for him. You just have to learn everything the hard way in this cult. But just to be clear I do love my husband, just as you love my Skyler, and you love my Jordan. Don’t break their hearts please ladies.”
Today was the day. I was getting married today. I had been woken up early to get ready. Ali was already in mine and Skyler’s room doing my hair and make-up. Skyler was getting dressed in Jordan’s room. This was such a big deal for me.
“NO!” I heard Jordan scream from the other side of the door.
“You can’t do this, Dad!” Skyler yelled. Henry, Seth and some other guy burst through the door.
“What’s going on?” Ali asked. Seth and the other man walked right over to my sister and I and grabbed us. Seth restrained my arms, and I tried to fight him.
“Skyler!” I yelled for him, but his dad held him back.
“I’m sorry son, but these ladies are not a good fit for this family.” Henry said. Skyler was screaming and crying as my sister and I were taken away. I tired to fight Seth but he was far too strong. They through Ali and I into the truck of their car.
“What’s going to happen to us, Ali?” I asked her.
“I don’t know Z. I don’t know.” The ride in the car wasn’t very long, maybe about 20-30 minutes, and for the most part was a smooth ride. The car came to a stop and a few moments later the trunk flew open and Seth pulled us out and toward a house. Maybe I shouldn’t say house it was more like a cottage. It was small and in the middle of a forest, it had vines growing up the side of it and smoke coming out of the chimney.
I tried to pull away from him but his grip was too tight on my arm. We approached the door and two boys came outside. The 1st one was probably in his early 20’s and the other still in his teens.
“These are the girls. What do you think?” Seth asked the older boy.
“Perfect. Matt, the brown haired one is yours, take her to your room.” Matt, the younger boy nodded and pulled me into the house.
“Alison!” I yelled out after her.
“Shh.” Matt hissed at me. He dragged me down the hall into a small room. It had a large bed and a smaller one on the floor in the corner.
“Sit.” He pointed at a chair on the other side of the room, it looked exactly like the one in Skyler’s kitchen. I nervously, walked toward the chair. Matt pushed me into it, and began putting the leather straps around my wrists and ankles.
“Please, just let me go.” I cried. The boy looked down at me and smiled.
“Ohh, but we are going to have so much fun.” He said almost in a treating way. I wanted to yell at him and command he let me go, but I was too afraid too. He shortly after left the room. I was all alone.
It had been nearly 3 hours since Zooey was taken from me. I lost it once they left. My father wouldn’t let me out of my room, because he thought I’d go after him. And he was right, I would. Once I had broken down my door, my father grabbed me before I could get out the door, he dragged me back in my room and cuffed me to the bed. I had done the same thing to Zooey. I felt awful.
“This is for your own good, Son.” My father said before he put my door back up and left. I was furious. I promised Zooey that I would never let anything happen to her, that I was going to protect her no matter what. I felt myself start crying, I have never once cried in my life, but I love Zooey and crying over her is only natural.
“Can I come in?” it was Jordan on the other side of my broken door.
“Yeah. Whatever.” Jordan came into the room and sat on my bed.
“How are you doing?” He asked.
“How could you not fight for her? You loved Ali!” I yelled at him.
“Skyler. Calm down. Just let me explain.
“Hello, Zooey.” Matt walked back into the room and toward me. I looked away from him, trying to avoid all eye contact. He sat directly on my lap.
“W-what are you doing?” I asked shakily.
He gave me the most wicked smile, and started undoing his pants.
Oh god no.. I thought to myself. Just go somewhere else and it will all be over soon. He finished removing all his clothes and then started with mine. Go somewhere else, I thought again. Skyler, think about Skyler.
He’ll come and save me, this nightmare will be over soon. I suddenly felt excreting pain, it hurt more than anything I had ever felt before. I just wanted it to go away, but it didn’t he continued thrusting inside me, making me scream in pain. I started rhyming off the people I care about, name’s to distract me :Skyler, Ali, Jake, hell even Jordan. Steven, all my school friends. Finally the pain the stopped. He got off me and put my clothes back on me. He snickered at me.
“Stupid whore.” He laughed before he left. You’re the stupid one, for messing with me. I thought to myself.
I was so swore, everything was aching. I just wanted to go back to Skyler
I was in a small caged room with 4 other boys, they identified themselves as Ayden, Lex, Tyler, and Oliver. Oliver and I had been chatting since I got there, I told him all about the plan, and why I was there. I had purposely been taking by the cult, to guide the F.B.I here, and when they get here, they will find my sisters recorders and I will be able to find them both. Oliver was so excited about getting to go home.
“When will they be here?” He whispered.
“Soon, probably 20 minutes or so.” I answered to the best of my knowledge.
“Good. I can’t wait to get home to see my Mom. I miss her so much. And my brother and sister. Our father left when we were little, so I have always help Mom, with the little ones. She must be terrified, right now.” He cornuted explaining to me about his life. He was 16 years old, and was a year away from graduation. We continued talking until and guard approached the cell.
“Whore. Get up.” Me and other boys in the cell jumped off the ground and looked at the guard. He pointed directly at Oliver,
“You’ve been sold.” He to Oliver. No, I thought. I can’t let him be sold, he is so close to freedom, just a few more minutes until the F.B.I come.
“No!” I yelled aloud this time. The guard ignored me and grabbed Ollie. “No..” I repeated again.
I sat there silently, thinking about what just happened, I felt useless. Anther half hour passed.
“F.B.I!!” I heard them scream, and they let open the cage we where in and I ran to find Rick and Steven.
“Jake!” I could hear Steven yelling for me. I found me in the questioning room that, I was in earlier with Seth.
“Steven.” I said smiling at him, he came up to me and hugged me.
“I am so glad that you are okay.” He said to me. I nodded. Rick was going through files.
“There are over 100 files here” Rick said.
“Lookie, Lookie whose awake.” I guessed I had drifted off to sleep, and I slowly started coming back. I admittedly felt pain shooting all across my body. I sprung my eyes open to see Matt standing in front of me, with a small device in his hand. I looked down at myself, trying to figure out where the pain had been coming from; and there it was a black shock collar, fastened tightly around my neck. The pain stopped, but the after effects started to kick in.
“No, Please. You don’t have to do this.” I pleaded knowing it probably wouldn’t have done any good. He shook his head and moved close to me. He titled my head up, so that I would look at him, but I averted my eyes. He slapped me across the face angrily.
“This I’ll teach you.” He muttered under his breath, and he turned the shock collar back on. I screamed, as the pain began ripping through out my body. More than anything in the world I wanted the pain to stop. Almost in response to my thoughts the door swung open, and there barged an F.B.I agent, along with Skyler. The agent quickly turned off the collar, and Skyler rushed over to me, undoing the collar and the straps. I swung my arms around him, as he picked me up.
“How did you get here?’ I asked him, almost in tears. I had never been so happy.
“Don’t thank me, I owe it all to him.” Skyler looked over toward the doorway and there stood Jake.
I rushed over to him and jumped on him. I was now crying.
“You did it Jake. You found me. Oh, I knew you would.” I said still hugging him.
“No, Z. You did it. You found our sister, and you helped us find you. I am so proud of you.” I finally pulled out of the hug and looked up at my big brother, to learn that he was crying himself. A few moments later, Ali joined us in the room. Hugging us both. This very moment in time, it was surreal. I wanted it to stay frozen. I was there with both my siblings; which could have been impossible a few months ago. Being with Jake, Ali and Skyler was where I was meant to be.
