    Take a Bow Chapter Five

    Sabrina gasped at what she saw. Mackenzie was lying on a table blindfolded. Several men were surrounding her and smirking. Sabrina whimpered and wished that Cole was there. The man laid Sabrina down on a different table. He blindfolded her as well. Suddenly she heard an ear piercing scream and the sound of a struggle. She tried blocking the sounds out knowing it was mackenzie. She heard several men walking into the room with her and she shivered. Then suddenly the brakes were slammed on. "Everybody out!" A voice shouted. The blindfold was removed from sabrina and the large man guided her into an old victorian house. It was lavendar with red trim. It was disgusting in color and hideous in a certain way. It was eerie and unsophisticated. Sabrina grimaced and looked for Cole. She didnt see him and was worried. She looked for A.J. or Mackenzie but couldnt find them either. She saw Julianna up ahead walking into the house. Once she was inside the house she was guided into a small room where A.J. was inside. Sabrina cried and ran into his arms. A.j. held her and tried comforting her. "Wheres Cole and mackenzie?" Sabrina asked. A.j. sighed. "Cole was taken away just like you amd Kenzie." Tears filled his eyes. Sabrina knew he was in love with Mackenzie and she knew he was scared. She was scared too and as a freshman she had no idea what was going to happen. All of the others were seniors and she was scared to death yet her composure was the strongest. She thought for a long time trying to find a way to comfort A.j. suddenly it clicked. Sabrina and A.j. were together which had to of ment that Cole and Mackenzie were together. She quickly explained her reasoning to A.j. he thought and finally agreed with her. It was a very reasonable thought. Take the lovers away from each other and see what they can all think of that happened. Teenagers imaginations can run very wild. Sabrina layed her head on A.j. and fell asleep hoping someone would be looking for them by now. She dreamed of her and Cole and living happily. With two kids and a happy family. She was being woken up by a shake. When she finally woke up A.j. was no longer there. She sat up and looked around quickly. She started panicking and breathing deeply. She leaned against the wall and sobbed. She noticed a security camera and flipped it off as she cried. The door was opened and a.j. was thrown in a few moments later. He had a large gash across his eye and his lip was bleeding. His other eye was starting to swell and he was coughing up blood gasping for air. "A.j." she said. She hurried over to him and examined the wounds. "What happened to you?" She said scared. He shook his head and brushed her hair out of her eyes. Tears filled his eyes and he said. "Lie to them. Tell them what they want to hear or you might look like me." He coughed and more blood came up." ***********the next chapter will focus on cole and Mackenzie. Keep in mind that during the next chapter this was happening at the same time.
