Serenity Winters

Elliot Micheals

Once we arrived at her place, I parked the car in front of her apartment building and decided to wait in the car when she got her things. When she stepped out and headed into the building, she looked back at me one more time and a silent exchange occured. I could sit back and relax in my seat now as I trusted in her that she wouldn't tell anybody in the building what had happened. But even if she did, no one would believe her would they? I mean, I'm the most convenient kidnapper to ever exist.

While I waited, I flashbacked to the supermarket and when she'd been really quiet beside me. I wanted to know what she was thinking. She looked so lost in her own world that when I called her name, I thought that she would snap back to her old self and start asking me questions on how I knew her. Serenity Winters. I'd found it in her driving license in her handbag when we'd been in my apartment. That name was strangely familiar...where had I heard that?

Closing my eyes, I leaned forward and pressed my forehead on the steering wheel, trying to remember.

Serenity Winters,

Serenity Winters,

Serenity Winters,

Serenity Winters,

Serenity Winters,

Serenity Winters,

Serenity Winters,

Serenity Winters,

Serenity Winters,

Serenity Winters!

My eyes flashed open and I felt a childish excitement spread through my chest. Serenity! I remember her now! All the letters we'd exchanged and long chats we'd had and then when I'd saw that one picture of her. She was beautiful in that red gown of hers. Her long brown hair was left free and cascaded down her back and her skin glowing as she smiled at the camera, standing on the top of the staircase; she was a goddess. No wonder I'd felt so happy when I saw her first. She was like an angel sent from heaven in reality after all. Even if the present Eliott didn't know the real Serenity, the old one did. And that's the reason why I'd wanted her.

The tapping on my window alarmed me and I jumped in my seat. It was Serenity and she smiled at me. I returned it.

"I need your help."

The End
