A day had come to pass, Mrs. Wallington had been on the phone all day, to early morning, asking everyone if they had seen or heard from Claire. Gene had phoned Sebastian, I'm really concerned for our Claire, this not like her to do something like this, "as she explained."
I am telling you Sebastian, some things wrong, Claire has been known to play games, but not like this.
I agree Sebastian replied, I've already notified the police this morning, and my friends are searching for Claire as well; someone's bound to find her.
She had told me the day of her wedding, at the dress shop, that someone tried attacking her; and I thought she was playing another one of her games. I didn't believe her, you know how Claire tells tale's, This time it's for real Sebastian; "Gene had explained".
I know Mrs. Wallington.
Oh my poor dear must be so scared, my sweet Claire, "as Gene cried while expressing her concern".
Stay calm Mrs. Wallington, we will find her, I'll phone you as soon as I hear from someone; and the authorities, "Sebastian said". In the meantime, stay by the phone in case she tries to call you.
Therefore, Sebastian had gotten into his car, and headed for the police station. As Sebastian entered the towns police station's door, I want to pay extra for more of your men, on the search for Claire Atkin's; "Sebastian stated, with a high pitched voice!"
I am offering a ransom in the sum of one million dollars to who ever finds her, "Sebastian quoted".
We can't be certain that she's been kidnapped Mr. Androusey, "Lieutenant Gardner said".
Claire had phoned me the night before our wedding, to come to her aide. She claimed to be attacked by a tall man with short brownish hair, wearing tan trousers, and a dark pullover shirt.
Did she see his face, "Lieutenant Gardner asked?" No, it was dark, all she could see was his clothing while she scared him off; from behind.
Why didn't you call the police, "asked Sgt. Carl Fitzgerald?"
I came over, checked the grounds around the lake, and stayed with her till mid morning; didn't see any reason to call, "Sebastian explained". You know how Claire toys with me and her games, "with an agitated voice!"
I will tell you this officer's, this isn't a game this time, No one has heard or seen from Claire, she would never leave me standing at the alter, "Sebastian said, argumentatively!" Something has seriously happened to our Claire.
Okay Mr. Androusey, we will put more of our officer's on the search, "said Sgt. Fitzgerald."
See what you're men come up with, after searching Claire's grounds, don't forget to scour the lake as well, "Sebastian responded", while exiting the station.
Awakened by the touch of a cold hearted hand, crossed her flesh. He places his hand of her mouth, to keep her from screaming, but of course she tries to struggle from Thornton. It's no use, I've got you as my prisoner, until you learn to love and accept being Mrs. Androusey.
Yes were married my dear, here's the marriage license to prove it.
Never will I be Mrs. Androusey, let me out of here, you crazed animal, "Claire shouted!"
Those are just meaningless words, you're upset; you will learn to love me in time, "Thornton replied."
Claire, no one will find you here, I've planned this out very carefully, "he explained."
"Listen to me very carefully, you will never leave me, Thornton said."
You'll never get away with this crazy plan of yours, everyone knows I'm marrying my true love, Sebastian; they will wonder what happened to me, "Claire explained."
They will look for me, and when they find me, "they will kill you!"
I'm sure they'll search for you, but no one will is going to find you my princess, "Thornton said." I'm going to take care of you Claire.
Come with me, down the hall is your room, where you will find all your clothes in the closet, accompanied with your shoes. As you can see I've taking the liberty of filling your room with all things you like, such as your favorite perfumes, and your favorite music.
Claire looked over the room with astonishing eyes, "You have been watching me, my every move she said", as tears rolled down hear fearful face. A peculiar look stowed upon her face, "Everything has been duplicated, she said in a whimpering voice."
Yes it has my love, I had to recreate and buy the same things you own, to make you feel at home as he grabbed her by the wrist. As she pulled away, Thornton grabbed her, putting his arm around her slender waist; and the other hand covering her mouth.
Claire struggled to escape his manly grip, I knew you would fight me every step of the way, as she tries to escape his clammy sweating arms.
"Stop she shouted", as she wrestles his masculinity against her voluptuous olive skinned, restless body.
I have no choice but to sedate you again Claire, "Thornton said with irony", as she looked up at his fallacious face. Claire became weakened by the shot in her arm, as Thornton picked her up, and carried over to the bed. As he laid her down to rest, he began to kiss her velvet colored rose, sensuous lips. Claire wasn't fully sedated, yet she tried moving her lips away from his, but it was hopeless. She had no strength, while she laid there helplessly.
"Such beauty that can't be denied, he said", as he caressed her long beautiful brown curls of hair. Claire began to moan and struggle, but she couldn't, the sedation had taken fully.
"She chuckles", Oh Mrs. Wallington that's not it, last night a stranger came into my home, "Claire explained".
You're still playing that game, especially the night before your wedding. For goodness sake Claire, rushing her out the door, "Mrs. Wallington, I'm serious."
Go my child, you have waited so long for this day to come, don't be late. I'll see you at the church I must go home and get ready myself, "Mrs. Wallington responded".
Claire collected herself while exiting the door, of the dress shop.
As turning the key to her vehicle, caput...caput, Oh shoot...not now... not today; of all times, "Claire shouted!"
She pulls off to the side of the road, lifting the hood of the car, there she stood looking at the radiator overheating.
All she could think about was being late for the best day of her life, marrying her true love.
While the wind swept the tears from her eyes.
As she looked down the road, she saw a bronze pickup truck heading her way, Flagging it down to come to her rescue. Screeching off to the side of the road, the truck had come to a complete stop.
Stepping out of the muddy old door, Claire turns around nervously, she can't help but notice; "It's him she cried out!"
Anxiously running for the car door, he grabbed ahold of her wrists, clutching them with both hands.
The anticipation he felt of wanting to be near her, he had waited patiently for this day to come, as he scooped her up off the ground, cradling her in his arms. Claire looked at him with such fear in her face, and said; "Why are you doing this to me, trembling with exhaustion?"
Please I don't want to hurt you, my name is Thornton Androusey. I'm here to take you to your new home. I've been observing you from afar for quite some time, "he responded".
I just have to have you, You are mine and always will be. I've arranged to have us married today.
I am marrying Sebastian, with hostility in her voice.
Thornton put his hand over her mouth, gently pierced her with a needle in her shoulder, Claire falls helplessly into his arms. He carries her to the truck, as they drove off into the woods, across the lake; leaving her car on the side of the road.
