If you haven’t read Chapter 28, here is the link:
“We need you both, something has come up.” My brother walked in as Dean and I cuddling in his bed. “I’m sorry, but it’s important.”
I got up from the bed and grabbed my shoes. I started to worry as I looked at Logan. “Please tell me dad is okay.”
He nodded as he looked back at me. “He’s fine, just hurry up, Aunt Marie and James are waiting for us.” I nodded as Logan left the room. I looked over at Dean, who pulled me into a hug.
“Don’t worry, it’s nothing we can’t handle, I’m sure.” Dean said as he planted a kiss on my forehead.
“I’m so sorry, I wasn’t thinking straight when I bailed him out.” My Aunt Marie said as she looked at Logan and I. I didn’t understand why she would do such as thing, but when I looked over at Logan, he was furious.
“Sorry? As if we haven’t been through enough!” Logan shouted as he got up from the meeting table, pacing back and forth. “Why can things just be normal for once for us?!”
Logan stormed out, I was about to get up and follow him, but Roxi touched my hand. “I got him.” As she rushed out to follow Logan.
I looked back over at my Aunt Marie, she had such a worried look on her face. “Why did you really do it?” I asked as she sat back down.
“I didn’t want your mother to be with your mother. He was all I had since our parents walked out of our lives when we were young. I didn’t want to be alone and I wasn’t thinking straight.” She paused and grabbed my hand. “I never knew Lucas wanted to take your guys, I locked him up and he ended up escaping.”
I looked back at Dean as James came over and showed us the pictures that Lucas did to our rooms. As I was looking at my room, the words that were spray-painted over gave me a pit in my stomach. “Who does he want? Logan and I?”
Looking up from the pictures, my Aunt Marie started crying. “He told me something when he was in jail, it didn’t make sense until now, but he told me he only wanted the one that can give me her.” I froze. “He wants you more than anything, you look just like your mother and he will do anything to get you.”
Dean held my hand as I just froze. I felt like I couldn’t move. What my Aunt said, made me scared for my life. I just didn’t know what I was gonna do. My thoughts kept rushing through my head. How can we stop him? How can we keep everyone safe? What does he have planned for me?
“Athena, I will make sure that nothing happens to you or your brother,” James spoke as he looked into my eyes. “I watched what happened to your mother when he was around, I’m not going to let the same thing happen to you.”
I looked over at Dean, as he had gotten up and left the room. James grabbed my wrist to face him. “This is a lot of information for him. Give him some time to dissolve it.” I nodded as I walked away and headed towards my brother’s hall.
“This is all of her fault!” I heard Logan scream. “She made this choice and everything she has done has put Athena and I in more danger than we need to be!” I kept walking to see my brother on his deck pacing back and forth.
Roxi was with him, keeping her distance, “Logan! Sometimes people don’t think when they’re in pain! Your Aunt did the best she could and I know that it’s not something you want to hear, but you should hear her out.” Roxi said as I got closer.
“He’s coming back for us because we look like our mother! He wants to have a perfect family with us because we are her children!” Logan said as he turned around and looked at me.
“He’s not coming for you, Logan.” I said, walking onto the deck and facing him. “It’s me he really wants.” I said as he shook his head no.
I felt my eyes water, as he threw his hands into his hair. “No, no! Athena, we aren’t going to let him take you. I’ve already lost too many people and I’m not going to lose my sister.” Logan pulled me into a hug.
He knew exactly what Lucas wanted to do with me. My stomach turned just thinking about it. I would be his next slave.
