    Kidnapped ¿ Part two ¿

    So you guys gave me three positive comments. As promised heres the next part. Hope you enjoy.
    <br>

    <br>

    As I was thrown into the car I saw two other men in the car. The one in the backseat was wearing a mask and had the coldest green eyes I've ever seen. The one in the passenger seat , I noted , wasn't wearing a mask. He has strong facial features and soft brown eyes. I couldn't help but think out how handsome he was. As i looked at this man i winced as a sharp pain went through my shoulder blade. Then someone put a damp towel against my nose and mouth. The last thing i saw before i passed out was a man wearing a mask with piercing blue eyes that seem to stare into my soul with hatred and darkness. I woke up as the driver stepped on the brakes so hard that i flew into the back of the passesnger seat , hitting my chest extrimally hard. I winced in pain as the door to a garage opened. The driver and the two other men got out the car. I slowly opened the car door and climbed out a i saw the three men that were in the car with me was joined by two other men. I noted that the driver whos eyes held so much darkness and hatred and the man that sat beside me with such cold green eyes had sometime removed their masks. The five men standing in front of me were so handsome. The driver , whos name happened to be Blake , spoke , "Hello , Kaitlynn. Welcome." He then looked around as the man with cold green eyes came behind me and snaked his arm around my stomach and whispered in my ear , "You are now one of us." His voice so clear. I looked around and the drivers eyes somehow had softened a bit. "Kaitlynn , tomorrow you will start your training. For now you can relax in the house." The five men led me into a fairly magnificent house. I couldn't help but look around in awe. Then finally we went down into a basement which was converted into a lounge room and a gym. I sat down on a bean bag , a bit confused at why then men were now being so nice. I finally learned everyones names. The man with piercing blue eyes was name Blake , the man with with cold green eyes was named Drake , the man with soft chocolate brown eyes was named Elijah , the man that had light brown eyes was named Efrain , and the man with playful hazel eyes was named Noah. I was still a little afraid but i began to relax. That night i went to sleep in a forgien bed wondering what tomorrow would bring.
