He stole me.
He broke me.
I’m being auctioned for Fifty thousand dollars.
Now, I don’t belong to anyone but strangely enough I wanted to belong to him.
It’s his eyes … I lost myself in them
She is so out of place. Her hands are shaking and she looks like she’s about to faint. Huge
grey eyes keep moving flittingly from the stage to her water. The other two seem to be enjoying
the night, but Kristine definitely isn’t.
I reach over and take hold of her hand. I give it a light squeeze. “You survived. The
shows are over,” I whisper.
“Barely,” she mumbles back. Her eyes flit between my hand and my eyes. I’m making
She’ll be perfect. I can see Warren keeps looking at her. She’s gotten his attention as
well, not as much as Riza, whose face he’s bussing sucking. They sound like an Elephant,
slurping water. The man can’t kiss to save his own pathetic excuse of a life. He lets her lips go
with a wet popping sound. I can see the redhead is struggling to not reach up and wipe her mouth off.
For a brief moment Warren’s eyes meet mine, then Justin’s. “It’s time,” Warren stands
Disappointment flashes over Kelly’s features, where she’s been talking to my brother. I can’t help feel sorry for these girls. Such stupid girls.
Warren’s still smiling as he takes out a gun with a silencer attached. I hear Kristine’s
gasp and then the wooshing sound it makes through the air, as he smacks Riza against the side of her head. Her body falls to the ground from the force he used. Shock vibrates through me. I’ll
never get used to seeing a woman being beaten.
Justin grabs hold of Kelly and covers her mouth before she can scream. I hold Kristine’s hand tighter. She stares at Riza for another shocked moment, then she launches her body forward
to get to her unconscious friend. Blood trickles from a gash where the gun connected with Riza’s temple.
“R … Riza!” Kristine manages a gasp filled with terror. “Why did you do that?”
Warren turns the gun on Kristine, a look of irritation on his face. “No!” I jump up and yank Kristine up next to me. “Don’t be stupid. You don’t have to kill anyone. Think of the money. Your father will be pissed. He wants four girls.”
Warren moves his hand so that the gun is pointing directly at my chest. I clear my face of
all emotion. I shove Kristine at Warren. “Kill her then. It doesn’t matter to me. We’ll just have to
keep looking, because I sure as hell won’t be telling your father why we failed him.”
Kristine is whimpering at Warren’s feet, a total mess of snot and tears. Warren scowls
down at her. “She’ll be a turn on for someone who likes the sniveling kind. Silence her before I
change my mind.”
I reach for Kristine but she tries to scramble away, in the direction of the injured girl. Before I can take hold of her, Warren’s pointed shoe connects with her ribs. Her mouth opens in
a silent scream and more tears fill her eyes. I grab hold of her, one arm around her waist and the
other over her mouth.
Warren glances at the waiter standing by the door to the balcony. “Bring this one,” he
points to Riza. The waiter rushes to the girl and he throws her limp body over his shoulder. The
way he’s carrying her makes the dress ride up, exposing her ass.
I lift Kristine off the ground and follow the waiter. Her hands come up, gripping hold of
my arm. Sharp nails dig into my skin. She tries to thrash but she should know it’s useless. She’s
no match for me.

About the author:
Michelle Horst is thirty seven years old and is from the land of milk and honey.
She’s been in love with reading from an early age. She has a passion for other cultures, but she has an ultimate soft spot for nature and animals.
She first tried her hand at writing in early 2009 and as the first words started to form into a book, she knew she was hooked. Dreams spilled onto pages, and that was the beginning of a wonderful journey.
One filled with joy.
One filled with passion and heart stopping moments.
But most of all, it’s filled with such pride and peace as a story comes to life, and characters fill your life, living in the very walls of your mind, living in the minds of your readers. There is nothing as satisfying as that.
Thank you for each and every story you share with me.
