The demons that haunted my nightmares were supposed to remain there.
Yet, they had materialized into the real world and stole what was mine. There wasn’t much I feared, but my life had been turned upside down twice in recent weeks.
When Kingston alerted me that there was an incident involving Anais and her father and that his team was rushing in, my heart felt as if it were being strangled. It took precious moments for me to reach Rob and head down to the car because there was no way I would stay at my office waiting for word on what happened to Anais. Every second that passed without word made my mind race, wondering if the moment she walked out of my parents’ home would be the last time I saw her. After I was told that although James had been shot, Anais was fine and they were transporting her to a safe house, I felt as if I could breathe again.
Once it was confirmed that Kingston had Anais and she was safe, I knew that everything was going to be fine. I trusted Kingston with my life, and I knew that he would do everything in his power to make sure that Anais was okay.
The slight tremble of my hand as I pulled at my tie told me my feelings about this were completely different. The item of clothing now felt as if it were restricting my breathing, a change from just before I entered my home. The headache that was starting to form would not deter me from what had now become my only purpose: saving her.
Someone kidnapped her and I would drag whoever did this through the bowels of hell to get her back. This was a war and there wasn’t a chance that I would lose.
I pulled my phone out again and clicked a single button to redial the number that I practically had memorized due to how many times I had seen it in the last hour, but I got the same thing every time: Anais’s voicemail. I called both Kingston’s and Carter’s phones and got the same result. Where the fuck is everyone?
I cussed at myself for not working faster. The extra security measures that were supposed to be in place weren’t due to be installed until Monday. I’m failing her.
