Author’s Note: Last chapter. Thanks for reading.
The police outside shout in their headphone a few times. Inside the room, Lee is just calm but he knew there was no way out. He wouldn’t give up without a fight. He had lingered there for too long. His plan had failed.
“I see you called your friends” Lee looks at Ben
“You better do as they say”
“Who made you the boss? Shut up I have to think” Lee raises his voice and gets to the window
There were at least 5 police cars outside. The officers were standing behind the car doors with the gun pointed at the motel. Mandy and Ben are sitting on the bed looking at him.
Lee gets to them and grabs Mandy’s arm so she stands up. Ben tries to grab her hand but Lee drags her to the bathroom. He locks the door behind them.
“This is what I want you to do. Go outside and tell to the cops to back off. Say I want to get my car and a free getaway and I’ll promise no one will get hurt. Can you do that?” He lays his hands on her shoulders and looks in her eyes
“You can’t tell me what to do anymore”
He steps back and looks upset at her.
“That’s where you are wrong. Do you really think I wouldn’t keep hurting you? I lied, I love taking you with force. I love the power. The first time I saw you I wanted to make you my sex toy. That’s what you’re doing to me. That’s the reason I killed your friend and Sara. They tried to seduce me so I stopped it. I did it all for you. So you actually own me a favor”
“No I don’t. You only say that because you think it turns me on. But it doesn’t. I want this to be over. Turn yourself in. Do it for me if you really love me” She looks upset at him
He didn’t want to hear none of it.
“So you’re gonna refuse me? You can say goodbye to your precious Ben” He storms out of the bathroom
He’s been hiding a gun inside his jacket pocket and points it at Ben. He quickly gets up and steps back. Mandy gets there quickly but before she can do anything, Lee shoots him in the right knee. Ben collapses on the floor and grunts in pain. The police have heard and they storm in.
“Put the gun down and get slowly down on your knees with your hands behind your head” One of the cops commands Lee and he drops the gun to do so
Mandy gets to Ben and gets down on her knees beside him. He was in terrible pain. The ambulance is called. The cops arrest Lee for murder and kidnapping. Before they take him away, he wanted to give her a last kiss and she lets him.
“I’m sorry” Was his last words to her
She was relived she was finally free.
Later in the hospital Mandy sits by Ben’s bed. Luckily the bullet only injured a small part of his knee. He would be alright again.
“Will you ever forgive me?”
“It wasn’t entirely your fault. I should have listened to you. I’m just glad I got you back. Let’s promise each other we’ll never be part again” She takes his hand in hers
“I promise” He smiles and they kiss
Mandy would never see Lee again. He had been found guilty and sentenced for 15 years of man slaughter and other crimes he had committed. It wasn’t the first time he had got arrested. It turned out he had raped and insulted several women before she met Mandy but he had always got away with it. He was a great manipulator and knew how to exploit his good looks.
Mandy’s hell was over. The only thing that would remind her about it was the child she was expecting. It didn’t matter who the father was. She and Ben were happy about their new family. After 10 years they finally get married. Their experiences made them stronger. Nothing would take that happiness away again.
Lee drives all night long. Mandy hadn’t woken up once. They were getting to the border. It was only 10 miles away. He had to make a final stop and then it was time for goodbyes. He would meet his partner in crime in a motel close to the border at 9 am. The motel was situated in a quiet place where not many people were moving around. The sun was shining and it was a little windy. Mandy wakes up when he opens the door on the passenger’s side.
“We’re here” He opens the door wider
She was still disorientated when she steps out of the car. She wipes her eyes with her left hand and leans against the car a while. He closes the door. When she moves her fingers away, she sees a man standing at a front door to the motel. At first she doesn’t see who it is. It couldn’t be? He was still in London. When she finally opens her eyes completely, she sees a familiar face.
Happy she runs to him. She wraps her arms around his waist.
“Ben, am I happy to see you” She hugs him tightly, tears running down her cheeks “What are you doing here?” She sobs
Lee has walked after her and stops on the porch. He keeps looking around.
“I came to take you home” Ben hugs back
“You can say your hello’s inside” Lee hurries them
Mandy didn’t want to let Ben go so he carries her over the doorstep. Lee closes the door.
“Where is my passport? I should be leaving”
Mandy couldn’t believe what she heard. She was finally free? Ben takes her arms away.
“Um about that” He pauses and looks down
“I’ve thought about what you said and I can’t let you get away with it. You killed two people for crying out loud” He looks up again
“What are you saying? You’re not gonna help me?” Lee was surprised
Mandy didn’t understand a thing. Now when Ben was there, she was free to talk again.
“Wait a minute, two people?” She’s puzzled
“Should I tell her or should you?” Ben looks at Lee
He looks angry at Ben. When no one says anything she turns to Ben.
“Ben, care to tell me what this is about?”
“What do you say now, jerk” Lee interrupts and looks his way
“Mandy, he killed Annette” Ben looks in her eyes
Shocked she looks at Lee and anger was growing inside her.
“No, I don’t believe it. I refuse to” She looks at Ben again
“It’s true” He replies
She looks angry at Lee and gets closer to him.
“You killed my best friend. How could you? You let me believe it was some homeless guy. After all you’ve done to me. All those disgusting men you forced me to have sex with. All the confidence you took away from me. It was all because you wanted to get away with murder. You bastard” She slaps his face with her hand with all the force she has and he just takes it
She gets back to Ben. All the anger she had built inside her was now coming out.
“If you really want someone to blame look to your left” Lee says in a minute
She does and Ben looks away. She steps back from him.
“You?” She was even more confused
“It was all his idea so why don’t you scream at him” Lee gets upset
The truth was finally coming out. She couldn’t trust anyone. What had she done to deserve this treatment? The only person she could fully trust had betrayed her. She wanted to run away but she wanted to know the truth.
“What is he talking about?” She waits for Ben’s reply “Ben?”
He really was embarrassed. Lee was getting agitated. He should have been in Canada right now but he was stuck.
“Sorry for interrupting but I really have to go so could you hand that passport, please?”
“Shut up” Both Ben and Mandy yells at him
“OK” He gets to the window to look outside to see no cops were around
“The things is, I didn’t think it would go this far. I just wanted to have a change to our relationship” Ben tells her and sits on the bed
“So you hired this sex expert to spoil it all” She points at Lee
“I didn’t know at the time what kind person he was. I’m not responsible of his actions. I just wanted proof you would be faithful to me and as it turned out, you weren’t but I didn’t stop you either. It did prove our sex life, didn’t it?”
“You knew he was following me. You knew he raped me several times. You knew everything and you did nothing to stop it. How can I ever trust you ever again? I’m disappointed in you Ben” She sits down on a chair near the wall and starts crying
“I didn’t think it would go this far. How would I have known he’s a sick bastard?”
“Hey that’s an insult” Lee yells by the window
“But you are. I can’t believe I ever made a deal with you in the first place. I really hope the cop gets you” Ben yells angry at him and then get down on his knees beside Mandy
She looks at him but she was still not convinced. She didn’t know him anymore. She had been totally heartbroken when he left her.
“Were you even in London or was that a lie too?” She stops crying and dries her eyes
“I really was. That’s the truth but I was only there a few days. The day I met him was when I was waiting for you in the bar after work”
“Wait a minute. I was waiting for you. You were late and Annette said maybe you were stuck in traffic” She was confused
“No I came there before you but left and then came back again”
It confused her even more. Lee was impatient so he gets to them.
“Is this gonna take long? I don’t want to hear some history lesson here”
“Just leave then” Ben got upset which he didn’t do very often
“Give me my passport and I will”
“There is no passport. I lied to you” Ben stands up
The guys stood face to face, Lee being about one head taller.
“Is that so?” There was anger in his eyes
“Yeah what are you gonna do about it?” Ben pushes him a little
“You want to test me, huh? Keep trying and you will”
“You think you’re tough because you’re taller than most people. But in fact you’re nothing. You just beat woman when they don’t do what you want. Rape them; force them to do things they don’t want to”
“What do you know about it? You can’t even please your own woman. You need someone like me to do it. Mandy really was a good lay. I doubt you’ll never be as good as me. She will always compare you with me”
Mandy felt there would be a fist fight in a minute and she just wanted this to be over. She stands up.
“Will you two stop it? I’ve had with you testosterone filled crap. I just want to go home. I’m been through hell and I just want it to stop” She was upset
“You heard the lady” Ben steps away
“What a coward you are but what to expect”
Just when Lee is about to turn around, Ben tries to punch his face but misses by one inch. Lee just laughs and is about to walk away when Ben tries again. He succeeds but it makes Lee furious. Suddenly there are sirens outside.
“This is the police. Come out with your hands above your head!”
The cops had arrived. Ben smiles.
Mandy wakes up not knowing where she was. It was dark outside. She sees Lee beside her in a car. Her seatbelt was on. She had no idea how she ended up there. He notices she’s awake. He looks at her and smiles. A panic started to build inside her. Where was he taking her? All she could remember was that coffee she drank.
“Don’t be afraid. I won’t do anything to you. From now on I’ll treat you right, I promise” He glimpses at her while driving
She didn’t want to believe him. He had lied to her so many times. Seeing him kill Sara was still fresh in her memory.
“What do you want from me?” She looks at him nervously
“Want? I only want you to relax. You’ve given me a lot already and that is coming to an end”
What did he mean? Was he gonna kill her as well? Her heart was pounding faster. She had to get out of this car. He was driving quite fast so she could jump out either. She had to make up an excuse. The road was empty since it was already quite late. They were driving on the highway and some trees here and there. He concentrates on the driving so he doesn’t notice she’s looking at him. He had shaved and changed to blue jeans from his black pants. In a way he did look quite attractive in her eyes even if had treated her the way he had. She knew she couldn’t trick him or she would be in a gutter somewhere.
“I need to go to the loo” She manages to say
He looks at her but doesn’t reply.
“Please Lee” She lays her hand on his hand on the steering wheel
“We can’t stop right now” He glimpse at her
“I really have to go, please” She stomps her feet on the floor to indicate she really did
He thinks a while and then pulls over.
“OK make it quickly” He stops the engine
She gets out and walks slowly forward, looking over her shoulder to see if he was following her. He had stepped out of the car and looks quickly around. It was time to run but when she does, he’s suddenly close to her. She’s been looking forward for a second so he had time to get to her.
“Stop right there. Do it here”
She was about to cry.
“I can’t do it while you’re watching” Holding her tears
“Do you want to go or not?” He raises his voice but then calms down “I’m sorry”
Something strange was going on. He could burst in anger but now he calmed down in a second. She takes her jeans down and crouches down. While doing so she notices the folded knife in his back pocket. He looks away and after she pulled her jeans back on, she quickly snatches the knife from his pocket and points it at him. But he’s calm and smiles.
“So you found it like I thought you would. If you think you’re gonna make me angry, it’s gonna be a long wait”
“Stand back” She waves the knife in front of him
“Just think before you act” He steps one step closer to her “You don’t want to go to jail for this. Prison is gonna be hell for you. They love pretty things like you”
“Nothing you say will have any effect on me” She starts sobbing but he gets closer
“Mandy I’m not gonna hurt you. I’ve done enough of that already. Now give me the knife” He reaches his hand
“I swear I’ll kill you if you come any closer” She was getting angry between her sobs
“Hey come on. I’m much taller and stronger than you. Beside you already killed someone. Your finger prints are all over that knife. You don’t want to go to jail of something I did, do you?”
Her eyes are covered with tears. He looks at her in pity. She drops the knife on the ground and fall on her knees, crying her eyes out.
“That’s a good girl. Let’s continue” He folds the knife back in his pocket and helps her up
She was mentally tired. She gets back to the car and they drive away. That was her last chance. She would be his prisoner forever and that made her even more depressed. She falls asleep. On the way he stops and gets out. There’s a big lake where he throws the knife as further as he can. He should have got rid of it ages ago. He gets back to the car. Mandy was so tired she didn’t even notice they had stopped. He takes a look at her once and concentrates on the driving. Soon this journey would come to an end.
Mandy wakes up when she smells coffee. The weather outside was sunny and warmth felt inside the room. The bed was empty beside her. She sits up and looks around the room but she was alone. She sees a coffee mug on the table. She wraps the sheets around her and gets to the table. She was so thirsty so she drinks it all without even thinking something was in it. When she gets to the bathroom her eyes become blurry. She loses her balance and ends up on the floor.
Lee has come back and gets to the bathroom. He lifts her from the floor and lays her on the bed on her back. He covers her naked body. He had drugged her coffee with strong sleeping pills. He couldn’t do this anymore. It was better if she wasn’t awake or he would spill the beans. He sits down by the chair close to the bed to watch her sleep. He had time to think about everything he had done. Deep inside he wasn’t an evil person but there was something about her that made him act crazy. Even if he did love her, his weaknesses towards other woman was so strong. He hated rejections which was the reason he acted the way he did. He was used to get what he wanted and when someone tricked him, he felt betrayed. He didn’t mean to kill those women. It wasn’t planned and now he had to run from the law. Canada would be his savior. He couldn’t leave just yet though. His partner in crime had to make the arrangements first before he could flee the country.
Looking at Mandy sleeping woke up his urges again but he didn’t want to take advantage of her. He takes his mobile and looks through the photos he took of her. He opens his pants and begins to touch himself. He takes a grip of his member and moves his hand across the shaft until fully erected. He changes the photos to the video where Mandy and Sara were doing each other. Was he really this addicted to sex that he had to do this all the time? Even watching her doing it with other men turned him on. He never looked at the men. He wasn’t that interested in them. Moving his hand up and down the shaft, he watches another video where both of the girls are pleasing him. He looks up at Mandy on the bed to make sure she was still fast asleep. Then puts up the volume.
“Come here my little sluts. Daddy wants to feed you” He says on the video
In the video the girls are on all four on the bed and they get closer to him. They keep looking at his erected member and take a grip of it. They pleasure him with their tongues. They all moan and grunt in rhythm. In a moment he commands them to stop. The video continues where one of the girls are filming while he takes the other from behind. Watching all of this makes him reach to climax. He puts the phone on the table and closes his eyes to calm down. After a moment he stands up and gets to the bathroom to clean up.
Meanwhile his mobile rings but he doesn’t hear it. He’s taking a shower and stands there a while. When he’s finished, he takes a towel to dry him and wrap it around his waist. He gets to the bed where Mandy was still sleeping. He looks at her and then notice his phone was blinking. There was a message so he gets it. His partner in crime tells him to call straight away.
“What have you done? It’s all over the place. You put her in danger. That was not our deal” The person on the other end rants
“Calm down. What is it?”
“You killed two women now. Explain yourself” The person was still upset
“OK I made a mistake. Sorry I’m human” He was calm
“Some mistake. What were you thinking?”
“It’s their own fault”
“You blame the victims for your crime? I should have known”
“Listen prick, you knew what you were up against. It was you who suggested I would seduce Mandy but that was only because of your boring relationship. Wanted to spice up your sex life, you said. Well here it is. Deal with it” He was angry and raises his voice a little
There was silence on the other end. The person takes a deep breath.
“OK what’s done is done. It’s my entire fault. She’s gonna hate me when she finds out”
“She already hates me I can feel it. So we’re even. You keep the end of your bargain and I keep mine, OK?”
“I’m not sure I want to help a criminal”
“I keep your name out of it if you promise to help me or I tell the press who’s the real criminal here”
“Alright. You better leave before the police get there. They’re already close. Where is Mandy anyway?”
“She’s sleeping. She’s been working on me all night” He smiles to himself and looks her way
“See you tomorrow at the border and give your new passport. Good luck” The person on the other says and ends the call quickly
Lee lays the phone back on the table and put his clothes back on. He gets to the bed and lifts her up so she sits. He slaps her cheeks gently to wake her up.
“Time to wake up babe. We’re leaving”
She opens her eyes but closes them again. He lays her down again and tries to find her clothes to put them on her. He lifts her up in his arms when he’s finished and puts her in the car in her seat. He gets back to their room to take they’re things. He leaves the keys on the table and gets to the car. She’s sleeping so she had no idea what was going on. He drives to the road. It would take at least 13 hours before they would reach the border. Before he started the engine he looked on his phone about the news he heard. He was on the most wanted list. Sara’s body had been found and there were enough of evidence to get him arrested for Annette’s murder as well. This was the consequences of what he had done. He would rather get killed then be put to jail. That was a risk he was ready to take. He would lose the love of his life but what good would that be if he couldn’t be free?
After hours of driving Lee finds the motel he was looking for. They had been without drink and food all day so they finally got something. After they’ve eaten, Mandy had fallen asleep straight away. He had no regrets about what had happened. The only regret he had was not getting rid of Mandy earlier. But he was too deep. He didn’t want to fall in love with her but he did. His plan had changed rapidly. Maybe it was time to tell her the truth. He sits by a chair close to the bed watching her sleep. She looked so peaceful and beautiful so he could just watch her. It was midnight but all he could think about was her naked body. He stands up and gets to bed beside her. She’s sleeping on her back. She had no clothes on under the sheets so he slowly takes it off her. It doesn’t wake her up. He runs his fingers across her groin and blows warm air from his mouth. He begins to touch her with his fore and index finger for a while and then gets out of bed. He stands in front of the edge of the bed and undresses himself. He gets closer and spreads her legs. He gets on top of her naked body without touching with his. He looks down at her face and slowly gets inside her. It wakes her up. He smiles and begins to move back and forth, still not touching her. She gasps.
“You like that, do you? Waking up with a hard shaft between your legs, huh” He thrust inside her and pulls out a bit
His arms were getting tired so he lies on top of her. He tries to kiss her but she turns her head on the side. He lifts him up again and takes her harder. It makes her scream slightly.
“Mm I love it when you scream” He pushes inside her “Some more”
He thrust inside her even harder until her screams gets louder. It excites him even more. He was hurting her on purpose to make her suffer. She grabs the sheets just to grab something. She refused to touch him. His resistance had become shorter. He used to last longer but it was over in a few minutes. It proved he was getting tired of doing this. Having to use women for sex was taking its toll. When he reaches his peak he gets off her immediately. He lays himself beside her exhausted. She turns on her left side so she didn’t have to see him. She wanted to sleep and not be taken over and over again. In a moment he gets up and gets to the bathroom. She’s fallen asleep again under the sheets. He puts his clothes back on and takes his phone. He makes sure she doesn’t wake up and is out of the door.
As soon as he’s outside, he calls someone. It takes a while before anyone replies.
“Oh good. I don’t know how long I can keep up with this. You have to take me out of this misery”
“Just hold on. Only a few days and I promise everything will be over” The person on the other end says
“A few days? Oh man that feels like ages. I have to tell her” He runs his fingers through his hair
“Not yet or you’ll spoil everything”
“OK but if you don’t get in touch when you say you would. I give myself in”
“Lee stop worrying. I know you love her but you have to stop hurting her. I didn’t exactly keep her safe when I turned her in to you”
“Thanks anyway” He smiles and ends the call
He takes a deep breath and gets back inside. He takes his clothes off and gets to bed. The next few days would be long so he needed the rest.
