    Takeover part 5 By Ava

    Trinity woke up to find herself on cold, hard metal. She realized she was in some sort of factory. She heard an evil laugh...
    Suddenly, Trinity woke up from her dream. She smiled. It was the first day of summer vacation! She heard someone knocking at the front door, so she went to check it. She found Michael, her long time crush, waiting. "Come on, I have somewhere to show you," he said. So Trinity followed, leaving a note for her mom first. Michael led her downtown to an old warehouse. It looked old on the outside, but the inside looked new and improved. Michael led her through a door, and Trinity found herself in a giant room. There were machines everywhere, with women on most of them, along with one or men each. Michael went to an empty machine, and pushed her to it. "Get undressed," he said. So Trinity obeyed, and he shoved her on the device. It was strange, with metal bars for her legs. Michael tied her legs to the bars and her hands under the machine. He flipped a switch and a buzzing sound came on. A long, big device came out. "Ever seen a d ildo before?" Michael asked, grinning. He pushed a button and the d ildo started vibrating. He slowly started pushing in Trinity's p ussy, then let it do the rest by itself. He pulled a lever, a the d ildo slammed into her, making her scream. Michael left it thrusting in to her, and pulled of his clothes. He put anothet vibrater to Trinity's br easts, and shoved his c ock in her mouth. She obediently sucked. Michael pulled on her hair, pulling her head up into his monster sized d ick. "Like it?" Michael hissed.
