ALICE'S POVMy first instinct was to run for the door from where I came in, but Alder grabbed my wrist and turned me around abruptly.“ Leave me! I don't want to do this. I can't die. I can't die just yet. ” I whisper yelled hysterically, trying to jerk his hand away from my wrist. But who was I kidding? Alder was whole lot stronger than me. Even if I tried for the rest of my life, I still will not be able to get myself free from his grip.All of a sudden, Alder started dragging me to the right corner of the dark room we were currently in. I wanted to scream, but my voice was struck in my throat. My mind was fixed on only two words ' She died '. Well. I should have asked Alder if they were going to transfer the money to my family if I died.It was all about money to begin with. If they transferred all the money to my family, then it would be okay to die early. I was not sure if my death was going to be an easy one though.I hated to admit it, but I was scared.I was so scared, that my whole body was trembling and my mind was frozen in time.I was so scared, that I felt like throwing up but then I remembered that I have not eaten anything for almost one and a half day now.I was so scared, that I felt like curling up and then crying until the whole world disappeared.Alder dragged me to the corner and opened some kind of metal bar door in the dark. Almost feeling blind in the darkness surrounding us, I wondered how Alder was able to even see where he was going or what he was doing.In a motion, he pushed me and I fell inside on some metal - cold floor. I turned around to scream at him or to protest, but the bar door closed on my face. When I realized what it was, my face turned pale and my lips started to quiver.
It was a metal cage.And Alder had locked me inside it.“ Follow the rules and nothing will happen to you. ” The usual flat voice of Alder's, sent chills down my spine and my inability to see him in the dark, made me feel completely and utterly helpless.“ Remember. You have already signed the consent papers. ” He added, making my body turn colder than it already was, due to fear.I was stupid. There was no limit to how stupid I really was.When Melissa had asked me in the lobby to sign some papers earlier, telling me that it was necessary paperwork, I signed them without reading them. I was just too desperate that the thought of reading those papers never crossed my mind. Or maybe, I simply did not care enough about the consequences. I did not have anything to lose.Now, when I was locked up in this cage feeling helpless, everything felt more real than ever.“ Please, Alder. Please let me out. I don't want to do it now. ” I pleaded once more hoping with all my heart, that Alder would listen, but as a reply to my pleads, a cloth fell down on the cage, covering it as a whole.What was happening? I grabbed the bars and touched the silk cloth surrounding the cage. “ Follow the rules and nothing will happen to you. ” Alder's distant voice barely made its way to my ears and I fell down on my knees.What did I do?What did I do to myself?Leaving the bars, I wrapped my arms around myself and begin moving back and forth to dull down the fear that was clutching my heart and mind.The darkness around me was suffocating me, but I was helpless.Maybe, Helplessness had latched itself to me and it refused to leave me now.Heaving a heavy breath, I rested my head on my knee and closed my eyes to calm myself down.If I have landed myself into this shitty auction thing, then I have to go through this now.And for that...I needed courage.Hell lots of it.*********It felt like I have been sitting in the same position for years. My back hurted alot and my legs were numb.Out of the blue, I sensed the cage I was locked in, moving. I was unable to see anything due to the cloth over the cage though, so I kept sitting there, curled up in myself. I was tired. The emotional fatigue was much more than the physical one.The cage stopped moving and I heard several voices. Light gradually started to seep through the red colored cloth over the cage. I was surprised that I have not died with suffocation in here yet.“ And now it is time for the thing everyone have been waiting for. ” A loud male voice boomed in my ears and I held my breath back instinctively.Was he talking about me?The cloth was lifted off the cage instantly and light blinded me for a moment. Guided by instincts, I pushed myself to stand up on my numb legs and almost fell down, before grabbing the bars to balance myself on my feet.The first thing I noticed was the cage I was locked inside. It was sparkling Golden which looked pretty much like real Gold. My light brown orbs moved to the place in front of me. I could see silhouttes of people. A lot of people. Sitting like a huge audience. A crowd. But I was not able to see their faces. I was at a disadvantage, because I was in the spotlight, yet they all were hidden in the dark.“ We have named her kitten. She is a virgin and she is willingly selling herself off for one night. Completely at your service. ” Hearing the words of the announcer, bile rose up in my throat and my heart dropped down to the pit of my stomach.“ The starting bid is one Million. ” The announcer announced from somewhere in the dark and my wide eyes went to the huge screen beside me.The close up videos of my figure were showing up on it, along with an amount written in huge digits. It was one million which changed to one and a half million, as I kept watching it. There was a timer of one minute beside that amount, which was reset just as one million changed to one and a half.My eyes were frozen on the screen. I did not know what I felt at this moment or what I was even supposed to feel. Needles were pricking my body and I was numb along with freezing cold.It was stupid, but I wanted to know what I was worth for one night. I wondered if I went completely mad at this point to have such absurd thoughts.The numbers on the screen begin to increase, just like my heart beat. With all my heart, I prayed that atleast I was worth five million, so I could make something out of this night.Something to look back to and not regret doing this shitty thing. Even if it was something idiotic as this.The amount on the screen, froze on four million with the timer almost coming to a zero and my shoulders slumped down in defeat.Doing everything to the point you end up losing yourself and still falling short. This was the worst thing that could happen to anyone.Just as the timer reached the last one second, the amount on the screen went several digits up and my breath hitched.It was ten million.Gulping, I turned to stare at the silhouttes that moved once in a while, clearing my that doubt that they were really humans and not dummies.A sigh escaped my lips and I felt my knees go weak. It was worth it right?If I did something so horrible, atleast I gained enough money to pay for my father's operation.
Who was I fooling with this bullshit?
No excuse would ever be enough to justify what I did tonight or what I was going to do further.
A beep sound resonated in the hall and several groans were heard, but I was too caught up in my own bitter sweet emotions.“ The bid is closing on Ten million! ” The announcer announced and the cage started to move once again.I was relieved though, that I did not break the first rule.' Rule number one. Do not talk during the auction no matter what happens. 'The world began to spin in front of my eyes all of a sudden and black dots started to appear in my sight. The next moment I have fell down on the metal, that was more likely to be pure Gold.*********When I blinked my eyes open, darkness surrounded me once again. I was suffocating. When I tried to move my hands, they did not move. I pulled at them and realized that they were restrained.My breathing went shallow, as I thrashed harder to get myself out of the handcuffs holding me down. I was panicking now. Cold sweat was coating my forehead and cold air hit my exposed body. Gulping, I threw my head back, taking notice of all other things around me.
I was laying on a soft bed. I have not laid down on a soft bed for so long, that I have begin to forget what it felt like.My hands were handcuffed. Those leather handcuffs were definitely attached to different posts of the bed. Not too tight or stretched to hurt me. Just enough to restrain me.A blindfold was pulled over my eyes, which rendered me unable to see anything, that was happening around me.My heart beat picked its pace, realizing the graveness of my situation.Melissa had told me about all of this earlier. But it exceeded my imagination. The realness of my state right now, was making my nerves tick with nervousness.' Think about those ten million and keep your mouth shut ' My rational - evil mind screamed at me and I inhaled deeply, before exhaling it through my nose.I was trying my best to calm myself down and I was almost succeeding in it, when I felt someone's fingers grazing the soft skin of my right ankle and a scream left my lips without my notice.
ALICE'S POV I felt someone's fingers grazing the soft skin of my right ankle and a scream left my lips without my notice. The soft fingers were soon replaced by a warm and soft mouth, that made my heart almost leap out to my throat. I knew what was going to happen. Was I ready for it? No. Did I want it? No.Did I have to do it? That was a big Yes.That was why I shut my eyes closed, when the fingers traveled a little higher to my knee and stopped, before being replaced by the soft lips. I grasped the chains hooked to the Leather handcuffs tightly in my hands until my knuckles turned white. If I thought more about the fear that was killing me slowly, I knew I was going to start crying. The tears pricking my eyes were an evidence of an emotional outburst, that was coming right up. For God's Sake, I did not even know who was doing this to me. And this fact made everything
ALICE'S POV When I opened my eyes, Darkness surrounded me completely. My breath hitched finding myself unable to look in the dark. I pushed myself to stand up on my feet and ran in the familiar direction. “ I am scared, Dad. ” I cried out and banged on the closed door, but no reply came. My heart started to beat faster, fearing the darkness that was engulfing me “ I am sorry, Dad. I swear I won't do it again. Please let me out. ” I banged on the door harder, my breaths becoming labored due to terror. “ Please let me out Dad. Please, Dad. ” I screamed on top of my lungs, as tears fell down from my eyes. “ Alice. ” Someone was calling me. I jolted up, screaming and pushed the person who was sitting beside me away from myself. “ Alice! Alice, its me. Melissa. ” Melissa's worried voice made me snap out of my nightmare and I looked at her feeling, horri
ALICE'S POV Groaning, my hand went to my neck which was aching. Slowly, my senses started to work. I was laying on something comfortable - too comfortable for my liking. Blinking my eyes open, I hissed and pushed myself to sit up in the bed I was laying on. What happened? I grabbed my head and closed my eyes once more to try to remember where I was and how I got here in the first place. ' You need help ' Alder's voice echoed in my mind and my eyes shot wide open. He - He Kidnapped me? My heart started to beat faster, as I looked around myself feeling scared. I noticed that the lights were off, but the moon shined in from the glass walls of the room, letting the light of the night pour into darkness. When I looked outside, my jaw hanged low. The whole city could be seen from there. My breath hitched, when I realized that I must be in some kind of penthouse at this time. Detaching my e
ALICE'S POV Alder dropped me back to the hospital. The whole drive was silent. I did not talk to him. He did not talk to me either as we sat side by side at the backseat of a Rolls Royce. Now as I stood in front of the hospital building staring at the big signboard that read Greenvill Hospital, I did not know what to do. Should I go inside? I knew Mom must be waiting for me. She must be waiting to humiliate me further. She was not that wrong though. Maybe her way of protesting against what I did was wrong but the reason behind her outburst was not wrong at all. Every mother is bound to get angry like this if she finds out that her daughter went around selling her body just for money. It was Just Money for her. But for me...It was life. I needed this money to stay alive or I might really end up jumping off that cliff due to guilt that had been drowning me for years now. Not months but
ALICE'S POV My shift ended early today. I heard from my Boss Liam that Madison asked him to let me go early. I was thankful. Too Indebted to her. As I walked on the silent streets in the middle of the night, I raised my head and looked at the moon shining brightly between the stars. It mermerised me as I exhaled heavily forgetting about the world around me. I forgot that I was Alice Anderson. I forgot that I was almost raped just now. But I was bound to remember it after a moment. Memories never leave you. They keep haunting you. Until you die.Looking down at my feet, I thought that it would be better if I never tried to forget. I was chained to the ground, Reaching moon was not possible. I walked and walked until I was standing in front of the hospital once again. It was a place that I hated. And it was the place where I belonged. Sighing, I forced myself to keep walking, ignoring the disgusted
ALICE'S POV I stood in front of the hospital building once again. Staring at the signboard, my mind thought about everything the doctor said to me just a while ago. When I ran out of my father's ward, I went to the doctor to consult about his condition. Although he did not talk to me with much respect, but I was still relieved that he explained and informed me about everything. He told me that they can only delay my father's operation by two weeks. If prolonged for more than this time, he might die soon. There was no guarantee about anything so it would be better if I deposited ten million as soon as possible. My head was hurting. My heart was being crushed. I did not know what to do once again. Going through the practical options in my mind one by one, I even thought about selling myself once again. This was shitty. Too horrible but what did I have to offer except my body for that much money. But then I re
ALICE'S POV “ I didn't know you could do this too Kitten. You never fail to grab my attention. ” His voice was the same velvety harsh whisper that managed to send shivers down my spine and his touch still burned my skin with a type of fire that I unconsciously wanted to possess. This time...All my strength was truly gone. My knees were weak and my heart was beating in my throat. What was he doing here? I was suddenly conscious of everything. His hot breaths hitting my ear. His surprisingly warm thumb slowly making imaginary shapes on my elbow. His warmth that was seeping through my back. “ Wh-What are you doing here? ” I whispered doubting that my broken voice even reached his ears. “ I came to see. ” His reply came shortly making my breath hitch. Sweat started coating my body. If I stayed like this, I was surely going to faint. Stepping forth, I felt his hands slipping away from my arms leaving my skin prone to coldne
ALICE'S POV Slowly, he grabbed my hips. His fingers dug in my flesh making me hiss in pain. He might not be lying with that ' Fuck you hard ' thing. Hearing me hiss, he did not loosen up his hold at all. He did not care about me. I did not care about him either. Then slowly, his right hand left my hips and slid down to touch my clit slowly which made me want to moan. I clenched my hands into fists to not let him know how it really felt. His touch was electrifying. Whenever he touched me or was even close to me it felt like I was burning in fire and drowning in freezing cold water at the same time. I could never decide which feeling was more intense. With no words exchanged, he slid two of his fingers inside me. The forcefully held moan finally escaping my lips along with a hiss. And now he could know that I unwantedly wanted him too. Bodies never lied. Mine did not lie either. I was wet. With ju
