"Where is Zac?" I asked.
"Bathroom." He said.
I laid them down and went upstairs and waited. He came out.
"I'm right here Zac." I said.
He stopped and looked back. He got the suitcase and we walked down to the room. I opened the door and he carried it in. He sat it down and started hanging them up and putting the stuff up.
"Why?" He asked.
"Why what?" I asked.
"Why can't I come with you...I know your going back home." He said.
"Zac, he knows where we are. He doesn't Ike. He just moved in." I said.
"I know. But I don't want to be away from you." He said.
I got up. Stopped him.
"Zac, I'll be on a 24 hour surveillance after tomorrow. I won't be home anyhow. I feel better knowing your with someone who will watch you." I said.
"But we fight all the time." He said.
"No Zac, that is me and Josh. You and Ike get along." I said.
"Yeah right." He said.
"Would it help. Taylor is staying to." I said.
"I know." He said.
"Then deal with it." I said.
"But I'm gonna miss you at night." He said.
I got that bag and handed it to him..
"I thought about that." I said.
I handed him the teddy bear.
"It has a recorded heartbeat and breathing pattern. All you do is hug it close and listen.." I said.
"It's not yours." He said.
"Oh." I said.
I got the other one.
"Must be mine. Here." I said.
He tested it.
"Ok." He said.
He laid it on the bed. Out of the blue he hugged me.
"I don't want you to leave." He said.
"I know. Ike and Tay are here to protect you." I said.
"Yeah that's my problem." He said.
I smiled. "They'll take care of you." I said.
"Ok." He said.
I kissed him, then walked to the door.
"Good night Zac." I said.
"Good night." He said.
Me and Josh went home and Amanda followed. I had my car and half way there I turned and went left. I went to east 124th street and waited. I waited for an hour. I was fixen to leave when Adam's black jeep pulled up. I got back out picking up my gun and putting it in my pocket. I walked to the front of my car. He and Andrew got out.
"Glad to see you came." He said.
"Yeah...glad to see you stopped watching and finally drove up." I said.
"Yeah." Andrew said.
"What do you want?" I asked.
Adam stood smiling and Andrew prepared his demands.
"Your first child." He said.
"My what?" I asked.
"Your first child. Ya know the first baby you and Zac have." He said.
"Never." I said.
"That or you won't have kids by Zac becasue he won't be able to give you a child." He said.
"I don't care for kids if we have a child, we do. If we don't, we don't." I said.
"Oh come on." Adam said.
"What would you know?" I asked.
"I know enough to give you a choice." He said.
"What is it?" I asked.
"Either you give me the first child or you have mine." He said.
"I wouldn't sleep with you if my life depended on it." I said.
"It does." Andrew said.
I turned and looked at him.
"Now wait. The point here is to not hurt him. If I sleep with your son and have his baby that will hurt him. So no." I said.
"Then you will come to this address (hands me a piece of paper). For three years. Everyday no if's and's or buts's about it. Understood?" He asked.
"Yes but why?" I asked.
"Just do it." He said.
"Wait...after tomorrow. I will be on a surveillance. I won't be able to." I said.
"It is okay. We will wait." He said.
And they left. I looked at the address. '145 West 111th street....6pm.' is all it said. I decided to check it out and went to the address. It was a house. It was blue with white shudders. I then went home. Driving home, I thought about it.
"What could they possible want with me?"
I went on home and went to bed. I tossed and turned. Andrew keep haunting me and he wouldn't stop. I woke up at two am. The phone was ringing off the hook. I picked it up.
"Hello." I said, turning the small light on.
"Jennifer, it's Ike. I hate to call you, but I can't take it anymore. He will not stop crying. Me and Tay have tried everything." He said.
"Crying?" I asked.
"Yes, he woke up at 11:30, from nightmares I suppose and he won't stop. Three hours and he won't stop for us. We have tried everything from rocking to offering to stay in there." He explained.
"Um....give me time to get up and I'll come over." I said.
"Okay." He said.
I got up and hung up the phone. I walked to Josh's room noticing he wasn't even there. I went back seeing there was a note beside the bed.
I have gone to Angie's house. She called. Said she was scared. See ya later.
I got my keys and got in my car. I went to Ike's going the long way. It seems he can never sleep. He always wakes up from nightmares. I pulled up, still in my pj's. I went in sleepy. Tay answered the door.
"Where is he?" I asked.
"Upstairs." He said.
I went upstairs. He was laying there crying in a pillow. I sat down.
"Go away." He moaned.
I laid my hand on his back and started rubbing his back. He turned his head my way. I smiled looking down at him..
"Come on." I said.
He got up and sat in my lap.
"Zac, what happen? What's the matter?" I asked.
He laid his head on my shoulder. He had his eyes closed tightly, still crying. I rubbed his back. After a minute or two he raised up.
"It was that dream again....with Andrew." He said.
I sat him on the bed and turned his head to mine.
"Zac, listen to me. Andrew is not going to get to you. If I have to I will personally kill him...Zac. You have get over him. He is still controlling you even though you don't know it." I said.
He listened and watched me.
"Well?" I asked.
"I know...but you have to remember it was me he raped not you." He said.
"Zac, I know that...I can never feel or understand what he put you through, because I'm not you, but I can help you get through it. But you have to start telling me what goes on." I said.
"Yeah make another FBI report on him?" He asked.
"Zac, me working for the FBI has nothing to do with you and him. That part is over. You have to get through it. You have your family and me. You have to trust us to tell us what is in those dreams." I said.
He thought for quite a while. About an hour. He laid his head over, wanting to be held. I held him like I always do. He pulled back and I let him sit up.
"It was about three years ago. Before I met you. Before anyone knew. He told me then no matter what I tried to do, he would come back and he would keep doing it. The dream is an echo, of those words. I will keep doing it. He kept on. He wouldn't stop and the dreams just mix everytime together in one." He said.
"Okay..." I said.
He then leaned over.
"I hate waking up, when your not here." He said.
"Me to." I said.
I laid my head on his.
"Now go back to sleep, so I can." I said.
I laid down. Ike shut the light off. That was later when he realized we were both were asleep. I woke up first at 8:30. He was still asleep. I eased up and grabbed a suit I had left. I changed then went downstairs. I walked into an empty living room.
"How odd." I thought.
I got a glass of milk and went back up stairs. There he was awake now.
"Good morning." I said.
"What time is it? Good morning." He said.
"8:15.am." I said.
He got up. I handed him the glass.
"Here." I said.
He took a few swallows, then handed it back. I sat down.
"You alright?" I asked.
"Yes." He said.
"Okay." I said.
He pulled me back on the bed.
"Could be better." He said, smiling.
"Yeah it could be huh?" I asked.
Sitting back up.
"It could." He replied.
I shook my head and got up. I walked to the door.
"You'll have to catch me first." I said. I smiled and went out the door.
I went downstairs, listening. He was coming up behind me. I hid and watched him walk by. I snuck up behind him.
"Gotcha." I said.
"Hey, I'm suppose to be catching you." He said.
"So." I said.
"Ooookkkkkk." He said.
I kissed him.
"Now what did you want?" I asked.
"You." He said.
"It's my birthday?" I asked.
"Hum....let me think?" He said.
"You better remember." I said.
"I do." He said.
"Is it?" I asked.
"Yes." He said.
"Then I'm supposed to choose." I said.
Pushing him toward the stairs, he followed my lead and went up the steps. I pushed him in the room.
"Go. Will ya stop?" I asked.
"Why should I?" He asked.
"Boy." I said.
"I'm going." He said, and went ahead of me. I closed the door and locked it. I walked to my suitcase. I always had one there and at Amanda's. I sat it on the table.
"Just relax and wait a sec." I said.
I got the handcuffs out and slid them in my pocket. He never noticed either. I went back.
"Lay back." I said.
He did as I told him. I sat on top of him on his stomach. I leaned down kissing him. I grabbed the handcuffs and moved them to the side. I grabbed his hands and ran them up the top the side and snapped them. He never knew and just let me, til he heard the snapping sound. That got his attention. I sat up.
"When are they having the party Zac?" I asked.
"The're not." He said.
"Zac, I know better then that." I said.
"I swear the're not having one. You said you didn't want a party." He said.
"Zac." I said.
"I swear." He said.
"Yeah you do. Now where is it?" I asked.
"I'm not lying." He said.
I slid my fingers down his check.
"Come on. You get a prize if you tell." I said.
"Yeah, what?" He asked smiling.
"Hummm.......me." I replied.
"I already have you." He replied.
"No....I mean now. You can do almost anything you want." I said.
"Tempting but no. I swore. I wouldn't tell this time. Crap." He said.
"Thanks." I said.
I kissed him.
"Oooohhhh... well, you don't know where the're having it." He said.
"Yeah well, that is fine." I said.
I scooted down.
"Watch it." He said.
"I am." I said.
"Funny." He said.
"Now now...you know I'm always right." I said.
"Are not." He said.
"Zac, didn't I tell you a few years back, when you learned what it was and were laughing at Tay and Ike. Didn't I tell you then you would get embarrassed at least once?" I asked.
"Yes." He said.
"Did you?" I asked.
"Yes. Thanks to you." He said.
"I told you." I said.
I licked my lips they were dry.
"Well, I could be nice and let you on top." I said.
"Could." He said.
I got up to get the key. I fished through the bag.
"Dang." I said.
I looked through the pants that were in there.
"What is it?" He asked.
"I can't find the key." I said.
I got a hair pin and picked them open.
"There ya go." I said.
He got up. Then pulled me down.
"Wow." I said.
He just smiled. From there I got my wish and he did to. He got to be on top. We layed there looking at each other.
"What would Josh do if he knew what else we do?" He asked.
"Hum..there's nothing he can do." I said.
"True." He said.
"So, see." I said.
"I mean to you?" He asked.
"I would probably get that speech parents are suppose to give. I don't know." I said.
"Well, come on." He said.
Getting up and getting dressed. I got up and got dressed too, and went with him. He went to the other side of town to a large building.
"What did ya'll do invite the whole town?" I asked.
"Truthfully...about yeah." He said.
"Wow." I said.
After the party we all went back home to our houses, except Zac, he went with Ike. I went to bed about nine pm.
I was up at five in the morning. I showered and got my surveillance kit and all and put it in my truck. (I have a car and a truck). I dressed for the day and packed a cooler with drinks, sandwhichs, plenty of sandwhich stuff, chips etc. Things I would need. I put on a loose shirt and a pair of loose shorts. I then went to headquarters. There they gave me the address and told me 7 am-6pm. Everyday til they have proof to put them up. I drove to the sight. They had a portopotty there and I knew why on my bathroom break. I set up everything. Cooler in the middle. (Also something to beardown on). The windows were tinted especially for surveillance if they walked up. They don't see anything. I fixed it so I could get out on the other side. I took the tablet and wrote down my usual thing, name and all and the reason, I set it up. I got myself a drink and sat back. I grabbed my binoculars up on the screen and positioned them. Then watched. I turned the radio on to keep me from getting bored and had some odd tapes and all to translate and write down. I set the lap top up for that and did it. I did it first, while watching all day long. Man... half the day I was bored. I hated survillances. Josh came every few hours for a bathroom break. He would just stand around and watch. At six oclock the second team showed up and I left. I had that address with me and I clocked out and went to 145 111th street. I didn't really want to, but did anyway. I knocked for an hour. I turned to leave and that is when they struck. They pulled me back. One of them gave me a shot of somekind and then darkness...nothing. Not even a light of anykind. When I opened my eyes, I was laying down. A bed. Soft, satin sheets. I glanced to the side seeing a clock. It had only been about five to ten minutes. I tried to get up. I couldn't because I was tied or handcuffed. One of the two. I was still sort of groggy and laid my head back. A few minutes went by and I regained full composure. Laying down fully dressed,which struck me odd. A few more minutes passed when Adam walked in. He sat down on the bed.
"Here's the deal....you come here everyday after six pm. If you don't you have to either be working or in bed sick. No other excuse will get you by. You do whatever we tell you to do, regardless of request or your experience. You follow the rules. You do it right and you won't get hurt. You disobey or not listen, you will not like what happens. No wires. (Holds it up). No listening device. No nothing that will link you back." He said.
"And what do I have to do." I said.
"I'll spare Zac the pain, lap dances, BJ's. No real sex shit." He said.
"But why? Why me?" I asked.
"You or Zac." Andrew said walking in.
I knew better. Adam had good intentions, not Andrew. He had something planned. Adam left. He let me go.
"Adam I don't know how to work this thing." He started.
"What do you want? What do I have to do? And stay the hell away from Zac." I said.
"Picky?" He asked.
"Nope." I said.
"Ok, Zac is no longer my target... you are. I will know everything you do." He said.
He Handed me an envelope. I opened it. Inside were pictures of the sunset we watched.
"I will know. You are to deny him anytime he asks." He said.
"I can't do that." I said.
"Yes you can and you will." He said.
He grabbed my chin with a rough grip.
"You will do as I say when I say." He said.
I pulled away. I got up to leave.
"No." He said, pulling me back by my hair.
"Aw." I said.
I fell across his lap. He held me there. I pulled back.
"Quit pulling." He ordered.
I stopped. He ran his hand down my face.
"Soft. Just like Zac. Tell me is his face still as soft as it was?" He asked.
I nodded a little. He keep running it down.
"Ya know some things Zac, can't give." He said.
He started unbuttoning my shirt. He was about done when Adam walked in.
"Dad. Stop." He said.
"Adam come here." He said.
I pulled back, not liking the feeling one bit. He walked over.
"Get her." He said.
