Sam pov

I quest on the reasons why I shouldn't go with Steve but found none, 
its like faith has brought us together, imposing my problems with his and his to mine..
And now that I knew his intentions .
Deep inside I was glad, cause now that have found him am all ready no matter the circumstances to go with him to wherever, I mean anywhere,
I was Fully dressed in brown cotton pants and blue sailored top, I glanced at steve who places his phone to his ears, while he hurriedly spoke  through it, a lot of calls and messages has been bombarding his phone which makes my heart skips in beats and felt so sad for the missing lady,

with the look Steve wore the entire time it seems the situation has gone more worst .. He already parked all his stuffs and mine downstairs 
I could only sit patiently beside the bed and wait for him..
He glanced at me fully ready with this stress flickers all over on his face,
I try not to concentrate on how handsome he looks in his tight fitting jean and blue silk tailored shirt that was opened to the mid point if his chest,
But  the weariness in his eyes says it all  showing how much he really care about this lady..
he wasn't looking straight to me .. Now that he spoke, I knew he was hiding the shakiness in his voice which was so obvious ...
"Sam are you ready "
I shook my head while he reached for my hands and drew me closer..
He placed an hot kiss on my forehead and drop to look straight into my eyes...
"sorry for the inconveniences... "

"no problem,,.. "

he squeezed a smile and led me out
We were about climbing down the last flat steps and towards the reception when he suddenly grabbed my hand and shove me to a corner,
Alerted with his barely showing Adams apple moving up and down...

"Don't move, silent your breath sam"

he instructed in an urgent whispers.. And right there I knew something was wrong, i nodded as my muscles tightened warily
Now that our body was so close as anything, I couldnt  help but inhale his perfume and masculine scent ..he places a finger on my lips while I nibbled it with heart, I could feel his stares on me now  wishing I was able to read his expression
Apaced he pushes my head to his chest while he pressed his body more tightly to mine ...

God he's so strong
At the sound of boot passing by and ascending up the stairs, right there i knew that was the person we were avoiding ...
With the stiffness in my heart, something in me tells me... Uncle Erik found out I told Steve all about him..
Now he's after him
Gosh what have I done to deserve all this punishment from uncle Erik
Now fitting my hands tightly to his we move out hurriedly and ran towards the car
in the next seconds we were off ...

"what happened back there Steve, is that my uncle "

Trying to calm his breath,  he glanced back checking if anyone was following us,  he push the car to speed

"Sam pick up my phone and dail Henry, ..." he said ignoring my question..
Trying not to push him further,  i hurriedly pick up his phone, and felt this clunky sound in my stomach when I realise its been locked with a password ..
Wondering why he locked it when there was none on it last night.. Squeezing my face to a frown I typed the names that first came to my mind,,
ANNA,  ANN,,  but both came out with a wrong password.
He caught me anyway...
"I can't believe you could be getting jealous in a kinda situation like this Sam. The password is your name,  just type Sam... "

God,  my face got heated at the moment, I realise I was opening my mouth repeatedly without nothing coming out it,
The call got connected while I reach it out to him,  suddenly the deserted estate road of the hotel turn an eerie sights which got my heart skipping in terror.
Steve spoke hurriedly through the phone,  passing forth the estate address and all necessary information before dropping his phone , ....
Suddenly a  pick up truck raced up behind us,  the head light blinding then screeches around us and rammed into Steve side..
I shrieked as Steve clutched the steering wheel with steely grip trying to maintain control
"Sam hold on" he shouted
He steady the gear and zoom forward..
My eyes all widened as I placed my hands on my racing chest,  I glanced back ward only to see the pick up trunk speed up and rammed into the side of the car again which sent us bouncing off the road ..

"dammit " Steves shouted and pressed the brake which went ahead and skid into a light post before it stopped ,,
"oh my God Steve "
Glass shatters on the drivers seat and pelt Steve as the air bag exploded..
Metal scrunched I could hear the front bumper folded.   Steve ripped away the airbag and reached side Way to see if I was alright.
"Sam are you alright "

he was searching me with all kinds fright  filming all over his face,
"oh my God"  I touched his face at the sight of few cuts bruised right beside his lips and cheek..
Tears was on my face now , when the door suddenly flung open, 
A tall, big beard man trys to drag me from the car while he pointed a gun towards Steve...
"how many miles do you think you can get away with this fashion car of yours, " he said

Scared to the throat,  I screamed and push at him trying to free myself from his hold,
"get away from me "

But he jerked my arms and yanked me to the ground, 
"f-ck you woman "

"sam" Steve shouted
I could hear his curse as he kick on the stucked door repeatedly before jumping out...

"sam" he raced towards me but was stopped shut when the guy pointed his gun towards him

"i was told to bring the lady man..and if you choose to die, dare take another step forward. "
I shake my head towards Steve screeming at him

"don't you dare take another step forward please Steve , please "

The beard man was obviously stronger than he look as he pulled me towards the black pick up trunk..

Not still wanting to give up I clawed and kick at him...

Steve pov:

My heart nearly rip out of my chest at the sight of Sam being drag towards that dirty trunk
Sam shouted  warning  me not to come forward. .but over my dead body will I allow some ugly tyrant drag  away my woman right In my face, I would be damned if I ever allow it..
Adrenaline rushed through me as I bent and speedily took a back fleet forward and attack him knocking us all to the ground ...
Sam screemed as the tyrant lost his hold on her.
"Sam get away "
I watched her pushed to her hands shakily as she crawled to the side of the road

Fury raged in me ..with a clenched fist I punched the tyrant hard in the mouth,
He groaned wanting to point the gun at me but I was fast to grab his hands to the sky as he pressed the trigger and shot repeatedly to airs
I twisted my hold on his hand as he suddenly lost balance of the gun, 

"you bastard" I punched him right on his face this time. ..i watch him roll as he swung his fist up and connected an hard blow to my nose..
I cursed while we roll each other to the dirt trading punches..
"trying to take away my woman , am gonna kill you "


my rage was able to enhance my strength as I over powered him,,  gave him a hard right, and straddled him..
He bucked,  struggling to get off from my hold,  I stretched, grabbed his gun and shoved it to the side if his face

''tell me who sent you bastard"

"wait please don't shoot "

Out of the corner of my eyes I saw Sam slide her braid to the back of her ears and push to her feet
"Sam, are you alright "

"yes she said in a shaky voice "

I turn back to the tyrant,  tightening my grip on him and kept the gun aimed at his head

The sounds of siren could be heard now from a distance now .. Horrified look flickers all over the face of the Few people who came out of their dormitory to watch the whole scene..
The tyrant eyes widened as an unsettled feeling takes over his form, he struggled as I pressed the cold gun hard on his face

"wait please don't shoot "

Suddenly he smacked me away and try to race, Henry ran and gave him a shot..

He groaned as one of his legs gave out on him,  he holds the wounded spot on his arms which was now covered in blood  while Henry  gestured towards the other detective to come wadle him into their custody ...
I dropped the gun and raced towards sam, whose eyes was still in shock...
"babe look at me "
She glared at me with tears while I grabbed her into my arms and hug her tight..

"you are safe now "
I patted her back and wipe off her tears, 
Few seconds of comforting her...
I took her hands along with mine and went back to the scene..
After explaining our travelling plans  before the attack took place, 
Henry calm us down, phoned and arranged for the  trunk to haul the car to the repairs while he stopped a taxi that took us back with our stuffs along with two officers against any kind of danger

Leaving the two officers outside, 
I unlock the door as she spoke,,
"we should book a flight back to portharcout Steve, do you have a passport "

I nodded and drew her closer thinking someone else might  grab her again. ..
My heart fluttered as my chest ache trying to forget how the stupid tyrant had touched and drag her..

"Sam are you really alright? Did he hurt you? "

"no not at all"

With the sound of that my breath hissed out as I pulled her into my arms

"God Sam I thought he was going to hurt you,  I didn't think I could stand that "

She sighed and leaned into my hard chest
Silence stretched as I held and clung her to my chest,  my heart beating beneath her check. ..
She pushed her face up and placed a kiss against my neck..
With that a sighed escaped me as I dropped a kiss back into her hairs...

The low sound in my throat, embolded me  as she look up into my eyes touching the cut in my face slightly..
Her look and touch sent hot desires through me, she traced her hands over my chest then lower to tease my stomach as she feathered one finger over my zipper

"shhhhh" she whispered. Then stood tiptoed and pressed her Lips to mine...
I hugged her tight and fused her lips deeply to mine with the emitted guttural groan that sent both our heart racing ..

This time she released my lips and took my hands,,
"I will make a call,  in the next one hour we will be in portharcout. "

I nodded and smile towards her...

"thank you babe"

Caleb pov:


My name came to me on the faintest breath of sound.. I rolled my head to other side and opened my eyes,  Sam face was framed in the small square box of the dark room which only had a lamp light...

"Sam " how's this possible, she is here,,  my heart slammed against my ribs as  I carefully eased my self up trying to ignore the pains.. I mo-ned with all the effort it cost me to move,

oh God the agony went deep,, 

"hey "

Little more than her beautiful dark eye showed through the box, but it was enough to send joy crashing through me,  this gift.  This wonder of seeing the woman I love brought me incredible happiness

"how is it you are here when"

"hey Caleb,  she eye suddenly flew open as my throat went dry,  I can't be dreaming .....nooo nooo.
I glanced fearfully at the dark room seeing how my hands was tied to the back of the chair with a thick rope

I was definitely not alone .
I stare up at a woman as she coughed out blood...
Beautiful and elegant
With bruise of wounds on her face and lips
I definitely knew this woman... I knew her but where
Where, where, my heart skipped as I remember ,

"oh God Ann"...
She smile through tears

"I thought you wouldnt remember my face, Caleb "
