I knew I couldn’t be wrong...With a sinking heart I opened the room door, the sight I saw was devasting and shocking. Tied on the bed naked, vulnerable and exposed was Kate. My beloved sister. I quickly ran to the bedside and shook her hoping that she was miraculously somehow alive. There were terrible bruises all over her body and her skin was grazed and it was shocking to know how animalistic they have treated her. From almost everywhere blood was oozing from all over her. terrible inhuman cuts and wounds. She was soaked with blood and urine as well. The bed she was tied was metallic. I quickly searched for a pulse. I could feel her pulse very faintly. I thanked god silently, although she was unconscious’s she was yet alive.
With my trembling hands I quickly removed the ropes she was tied on to the bed to. I hugged her to my body, tears rolled from my eyes soaking my dress, I couldn’t help myself. Never in life had I known that such a day would come to my life.
Hugging her to my body. I quickly called 911 and told them with my voice almost breaking my location and hanged up. The damage was already done I was somehow angry with them too, although they tried their best to locate her but was not able to find her. I knew it wasn’t best to hold grudges but my mind was not on right track at the moment. Next I called for an ambulance and waited both for emergency help and the police. Meanwhile I was hoping some how my sister would open her soft warm eyes which I always have felt safe upon seeing. Silently I vowed myself I would find those bastards and take revenge for what they have done.
SEVERAL HOURS LATER…..
“Father! She is in the intensive care unit, I am waiting outside. Please don’t panic. Things would be fine soon. Doctors have not yet said anything. I will call you as soon as I get updates about her condition.” I hanged up quickly. And waited near the intensive care unit, my eyes never for a moment leaving the doors to the room. Sudden footsteps from behind me jolted me to .look away from the door. I was surprised and quite shocked at the same time. Standing behind was Kates best friend Craw ford. Emma! How is she! Did they find those bastards? He was fuming with anger. It was evident he was shattered and and in agony .but what surprised me more was how did he knew she was in the hospital. With questioning eyes I looked at craw. Urrmm…emms.The whole thing is on the news, they are saying it’s the most animalistic inhuman abduction they have ever seen.
I mentally slapped myself off course the media had known she was missing. All over the news for almost two weeks the news had been going on.
Craw, me and my dad have all been eagerly waiting, hoping for any updates on her whereabouts.
Craw had an upcoming meeting so he had to leave for two weeks to attend the meeting in one of his branches in Seattle. Although he kept delaying the meeting, insisting he would only go when they find Kate only. With repeated insisting from me, dad and his family he finally gave in and left for his meeting.
Craw was a successful businessman who has several branches of his own in several locations.
He’s passion had always been in managing so today he has five distinct large scale hotels and restaurants in several locations. And is still looking further to advance his business more.
However the instant he saw the news of Kate been found he had flown back and directly came to the hospital to see her.
We were all waiting eagerly for the doctor, hoping and praying she is safe. Several more hours later a nurse came out and informed us that she was out from danger however she is laying unconscious in a coma state. And they would move her out from surgery room and admit her in a private room. They also informed that she was in a coma due to multiple injuries she had suffered in both her head and other body parts. Although they were able to fix her internal all injuries they cannot fully tell when she would wake up from her unconscious state.
I was beyond happy to know somehow they were able to fix her injuries. I hugged my father who was silently crying with tears of hope. Even craw was relieved to hear the news. At het same time he had to go because he had to go attend a very important business meeting, however before leaving he asked me to call him as soon as they move her to the private room.
Mean while somewhere in the neighborhood…
Sir! I am sorry we had to leave because someone had tipped the girls younger sister our whereabouts, we knew we could get caught so we left the girl and went as quickly as we could. Please forgive me.
You fools don’t worry that was all my doing, keep low for now. The police and media are all over about the incident. They will surely search for clues and evidence to find you guys. So better leave the country for some time. I have already taken flight tickets for you and your little group, go to the airport and collect it. It’s under your name. And call me back as soon as you land your provided destination so that I could tell you about the rest of your work.
Miss Emma your sister is going to be moved now, please wait for her in the private room. A nurse informed us, so we quickly went. Few minutes later they wheeled my sister in a stretcher to the room. Seeing her hooked up to so many tubes and unconscious killed my heart.
I had informed craw she had been moved to the room, and he had said he was on his way.
As we set idly besides Kates bed with hope, craw came in and held Kates hands. I saw tears streaming down from his eyes. He was deeply shattered and broken.
Suddenly my phone started ringing. I looked at it and was relieved to know that it was the police.
“Miss Emma I would like you down here at the station, we have some very disturbing news to tell you.” I quickly told my father and craw what the police had told and left in my car to the station.
At the Station
“Good evening Miss Emerson dove, my name is the Jeffery smith. I am the leading detective in your sister’s case. You can call me Jeff. I am sorry to ask you to come down here at this time, giving the circumstances how you must be feeling. I don’t know any better way how to say this to you. I think your sister wasn’t really abducted like how the previous cases similar to this have happened. I can assure you this was a very well planned abduction. Since we were unable to get any evidence or clues from the site she was found. Those people who were behind this have taken great efforts to cover up their tracks well. However my team and I are trying our best to find those whom are behind all this.
“I would like to ask you however, do you by any chance have any enemies that you know off, because my experiences in this field have reflected that most of times such things are usually due to long term feuds between business rivals or families. I am sorry to say this but we just want to be sure of any such thing if there is one.”
“No Jeff I don’t think we have any enemies. And as for family apart from my dad and sister and me there’s no one relative or cousins alive that I know of. You see we are not really from this country. Our parents had moved here when we were very little. And I don’t remember my mother. Because dad never talks about her. And Kate always brushes the topic off when I ask her about our mother. “
