My Life Without You
I looked at him skeptically, it
can't be. I realize that I've discovered where Adam has
been keeping the real Connor Fitzgerald. I tip-toed to the stone
wall that he's been chained to. He's asleep. But, a
thought occurred to me. What if it's not the real Connor?
What if it's someone who's been brainwashed and had
plastic surgery? I'm probably over thinking this. I
search for a way to let him down but there's nothing helpful
in sight. Suddenly, I look to my right and a badmitten racket
appears. I walk over and grasp it with both my hands, run over to
Connor, and start swinging. He suddenly wakes up and has a
surprised look on his face. He seems happy. I smile and since
he's chained to the wall i give him my sad excuse for a hug.
I suddenly experience these kicks in my stomach. I guess little
Jess is happy to know her father's back. "Hold still,
I'm going to try to break you free with this." I say
holding the racket. He smiles and replies, "Whatever you
say, babe." Quickly, I smash the racket against the chains
trying not make a sound. After a few trys, his arms are released.
Now, I can give him a real hug. With tears dripping past my
cheeks, I wrap my arms around his cold body. I pull him
close and are lips meet. Our first kiss since i thought he
died. I pull away and begin to forcefully pull his body up
and out of the chains. We lock hands and make a run for the exit.
Right before we enter the dark room, Tracy and Carly catch us.
"What are you two doing here?" they say. Trying to
think of excuses I say, "Uh, I was looking for the bathroom
and I happen to notice him. He looked like he had to use the
restroom, as well. So i helped him down and I decided to find the
bathroom to suit our needs. Gotta problem with that?" They
look at each other trying to think of something to say.
"Look, I'll show you guys the bathroom, just please
don't tell Adam any of this! Got it?" Carly whispers. We
nod our heads and proceed down the long corridor to the bathroom,
when Adam shows up. "AHA! I knew you guys would find each
other! Wait where were you going anyway?" he asks.
"We were on our way to the bathroom when you rudely
interrupted us!" Connor says in his face. "Ugh, fine.
Use the bathroom. Whatever." Adam complains. We continue our
way to the bathroom, but I hear footsteps. I turn around, but
nothing or should I say, no one's there. I pull Connor's
hand. nudging him to move faster. Then suddenly, the footsteps
return and this time Adam, Carly, Tracy, and Tom are chasing us.
With a puzzled look on my face, I wonder how and why Tom was
released from jail. "Surprised?" Adam calls out to me.
"Yes, very!" I respond as confident as ever. We keep
running until I feel something tugging in my legs, it's Tom.
I trip and fall, but Connor keeps running. There he goes again.
I've lost him once more.
