"Victoria" Someone called, shaking me from my slumber. "Victoria wake up" I noticed it was a male's
"Luka?" I mumbled. "Take me to bed. I'm still sleepy"
"It's not Luka. It's Jonah" I immediately shot up, eyes wide and scanning. My vision was blurry for a
second, but eventually focused on my ex boyfriend.
I suddenly noticed that I wasn't in Velma's warm living room, but in an open clear area in the middle of
what seemed like nowhere. It was also getting dark.
"Where the hell am I? Why am I with you? What did you do to me? What time is it?" I threw all the
questions at once at him as I scrambled to my feet.
"Hey hey relax" He urged, as if he didn't just kidnap me. How did he even carry me here without me
waking up? I'm normally a light sleeper .I remembered him sitting beside me at dinner, then I felt
Oh my gosh...
"You asshole! You drugged me!" I shouted in pure anger and disbelief as I stepped away from him,
stumbling slightly. He made a move to catch me but I shunned his hand away.
"Don't touch me you creep" I seethed deadly. If he could drug and kidnap someone, what lengths would
he go for what he wanted?
"I just want to talk," he said, raising his hands in surrender. I chuckled darkly.
"Oh and we couldn't have talked in Velma's living room?!" This guy wasn't for real. He couldn’t be.
"You wouldn't have listened to me" He whined like some sick puppy.
"Damn right I wouldn't! And you think I'm gonna talk now. You must be delirious" I checked my watch to
see that it was almost seven. Shit! Luka must be freaking. I searched my pockets for my phone but
didn't find it.
"Looking for this?" He asked smugly. "Your boyfriend must be calling you endlessly. If you just listen to
what I have to say I'll take you back right now. If you refuse, we'll be out here all night" He spoke as if
he had just won.
"I'd rather walk," I replied dryly as I turned to leave.
"There's nothing but trees for miles!" I continued walking. "Wow she hates me that much" I heard him
say to himself. Damn right you freak.
"Grandma would've wanted us to talk!" He shouted and I stopped suddenly.
"What did you do with her?!" I shouted as I walked back to him.
"Relax, she's okay. I wouldn't hurt my grandma"
"I wouldn't be too sure" I mumbled loud enough for him to hear.
"She was taking her afternoon nap when I took you. Will you please just listen to me. I'm sure hearing
what I have to say is better than walking for miles and worrying your boyfriend all night" He reasoned.
"Talk" I snapped eventually as I leaned against his car.
"I want us to start over, be friends" He stated as though it was the simplest thing in the world.
"No" I replied dryly.
"Come on Vic we-"
"Victoria" I corrected.
"Victoria... We were such good friends before and when we were dating. I know I hurt you with the one
thing you feared the most, but I'm so so sorry and I wish I could go back in time to fix it. Look, I'm not
asking for a second chance to be with you, I just want you to forgive me, and for us to be friends" He
sighed after he ended.
"Fine" I said and his face lit up, pulling me in an awkward hug but I pushed him away. There was no
way I was being his friend, but I figured the faster I agreed, the faster I would leave.
I forgave him about two years ago. Forgiveness frees the soul. But I vowed not to become friends with
someone like that, who easily leaves you in your most vulnerable states. In addition, the stunt he pulled
today proved that he was definitely not friend material.
We got in his car and he finally drove off. He handed me back my phone, but I barely had cell service.
He tried talking to me but I ended them as soon as they started.
My phone finally got some signal, and I felt it started vibrating instantly.
"Luka" I whispered.
"Victoria! Gosh where the hell are you?!" I could hear the relief in his voice, but the urgency was
I glanced at Jonah, contemplating whether or not I should tell him just yet, when I knew he could easily
"Funny story actually" I chuckled awkwardly.
"Victoria I'm not playing games. Where are you?" He asked once again, and I sighed.
"I really don't know" I told him honestly as we pulled onto a main road, but we were still surrounded by
"You're driving. Who are you with? Let me talk to them"
I cringed at his request, knowing it wasn't the best idea. "Yeaaa I don't think so"
"Victoria..." He warned lowly and I immediately pushed the phone in Jonah's direction. He reluctantly
took it, giving me a weird look.
'He's gonna kill you' I mouthed to him before he put the phone to his ear.
"She's safe" was all Jonah said, and I could hear the shouting from where I sat.
"Will you chill! I wouldn't hurt her..... Yes I'm taking her back now....No dude just sit and wait till I bring
her....No....I said I'm taking her! She's safe"
He argued back on forth on the phone, until I heard him mumble some sort of address, which I
assumed was where we were. I could tell he mumbled it in hopes that Luka wouldn't hear, but little did
We sat in silence for a while longer, till I saw headlights coming down the road, the car engine roaring
at full speed. It's him.
In a matter of seconds, he reached us, swinging the car in front of Jonah's so he couldn't drive away.
He immediately got out of the car with his face laced with anger. His chest was heaving up and down
rapidly with his eyes dark as night.
I quickly jumped out and rushed to him, wrapping my arms around him tightly in hopes to calm him. He
seemed to relax slightly, but he was still very angry.
Jonah got out of the car also, and it was then and there I knew he didn't want to live. I turned to give
him a 'are you serious' look.
"Leave now! " I shouted, but he didn't make a move to leave. By now Luka was trying to pry me from
him so he could get to him.
"Go!" I shouted.
His eyes finally widened as if he's just noticing that he'd actually die if he didn't go. He looked at me for
a second before looking back to Luka, who was still trying to get me off him without hurting me.
"He won't hurt me. Just go if you want to live." I didn't like the guy, but I didn't want him to die either.
He finally got in the car and sped away, so I relaxed and let Luka go.
"What did he do to you? Why are you out here with him?" He asked, seeming much calmer, but still
pissed. "Velma said you didn't say goodbye, so I knew something was up."
"Well you see..." I trailed.
When I tell him, I'm not sure if I would be able to save the asshole's life this time. However, he urged
me to continue.
" He drugged me, kidnapped me and forced me to be his friend before setting me free" I rambled out in
a fast sentence, and his anger was back in full folds.
"I'm gonna kill that f**ker," he gritted out, walking to his car with determination in each step.
"You can't do that" I reasoned as I followed closely behind him, joining him in the already roaring car.
"And why the hell not?"
" Because it's not legal" I tried.
"And you'll break poor Velma's heart" I added sadly. I seemed to get him with this one, causing him to
sigh in in defeat.
"Fine. But I'll kick his ass for touching you. Did he hurt you?"
"No, but I'm exhausted" I dragged. I really was tired.
"I'll get you home, get you some food and put you to bed" He said sweetly.
"I'm not a baby you know" I replied, rolling my eyes.
"You're my baby" He teased causing my cheeks to burn with a blush
We drove into an area that I recognized, and I noticed Jonah just brought me out of town. We passed a
turn-off that led to Velma's house and I suddenly remembered something.
"Luka?" I called.
"Velma was the mate of a wolf."
