The car put on its high beams and ran straight for them. Byakuya twisted the wheel to avoid the car but the other vehicle mirrored his movements and then suddenly put itself across both lanes. Jamie knew there was only one option, the steep, deep ditch and at their speed there wasn't much to do. She flung out her wings as they went over the side. The wings made for a roof that was impenetrable as the car rolled over and over and over one more time to land upside down in a winding ankle deep run off stream that with rain would not remain ankle deep for long. The lead thug swore as he seen his target roll so many times his stomach felt queasy. "Damn it! Get down there! Lets hope that the prized bitch is still kicking." Jamie felt warm breath on her chest and eased her arms from around....
his head laid cushioned against her breasts. The seat belts had snapped off in the accident. Her nose suddenly picked up the scent of blood and what her nose smelled was followed by her mouth. Her lips slipped over his, her tongue nearly forked to find his injured one, it was practically torn in two. As her tongue drew his deeper her healing saliva washed onto and into his bite and soon was healed. Byakuya found his mouth cut off of oxygen as Jamie's had successfully capped it in a kiss. He pushed her away roughly and found that he had pushed her head down into a sudden deep part of the stream. She merely folded her arms and rose up spitting the water out like a fountain. " So much for a thank-you. You almost had two tongues instead of one. Now if you don't want yet another hole in your head. Maybe between your lovely eyes.You will lay down on your stomach on the opposite side of the stream. Head to one side, so you don't drown and stay there no matter what happens...." When he merely gave her a disdainful look and slid off of her she sighed. " At least think about your ghigi's appearance. Don't make me use my talents to make you...." A snap of a twig and a beam of a flash light made her pause. " Damn it! We don't have time." She snapped her fingers and his body did what she wished. His ears picking up the sounds of men coming down the hill. "Jesus! They really went for a rough ride. Shit Lilies going to kill us and not the easy way. She's going to take time, making it painful and last. Oh that's not good. The boyfriend got thrown out....shit she could be crushed." Some of his fellows chittered in agreement. "Just stop you shits. If she's dead, can't do nothing about it. We just pick up someone that looks like her even if we have to make her look like her. It should work, it has to work. But lets hope she's not fish food just yet. We'll leave that to Lilly." Byakuya's heart started to thump hard against his rib cage. They were the ones that were kidnapping the families. Now they were after Jamie. No this time it was just for Jamie....someone named Lilly. He tried to move even a bit and could not. "Sorry Stone Face. I have to keep you safe.... Sorry about the kiss too." The men were getting closer. Her tone became slightly nervous. "Go back and stay safe. Have a family, but stay safe. Never come back. Never. For my sake and yours." Then she was silent.
"Holy Shit! She's over here! Excuse me honey got to check your pulse. Lily wants you alive and kicking when she gets going on you....damn nice body too. Oh well better you then us but damn what a shame." One of the men toed Byakuya in the ribs. "What about him?" Toe asked.The finder snorted. "She didn't say anything about the girl's boyfriend. Just leave him there, probably die of the chills any ways by morning. Better get her in the trunk at least its warm and dry. Think anyone knows that they were together tonight?" The toe whistled low. "With a girl like that I'd be with her every night. Screw that! I take her every minute I had free. Think....no guess not. Lily doesn't like used meat and after....she'll feed her two those pets of hers if she doesn't give her to that freak that likes to experiment on the left overs. Damn! Oh well lets get this miss...what did she call her.....hmm
....Jamie of the phoenix red hair. That's exactly the color too. Do we really have to give her to Lily?" The men snickered. "No we'll just give you to her instead." The Toe laughed jittery. The lead sighed and picked her up from the stream. Byakuya saw her pale face and the wet white shirt strain against her skin as the man held her in such a manner over his arms. Her eyes opened just once. They were cold and dark as far way from the warm laughing bright eyes as one could get....ones that has been there less then an hour ago.
'Don't come back.' He heard the order in his head her eyes were closed and as they used the rope to climb up he could feel her touch get weaker and weaker. He started to shiver but that's all he was allowed to do. How dare she do this to him! His anger got him a mental slap. 'Because I have to protect you-you idiot! You are the important one here. Not me! Plus I know Lily. If I can stop her now no one else will be taken....a toy like me is worth all the other toys she has stashed somewhere. The where is the problem. Its what we don't know. So just stay there and look sexy big boy they are going to call the fire department anonymously when we get going. What can I say you attract all types.
Yuck!' She giggled and then groaned. 'Sorry I guess I shouldn't eat like a pig on my off days. Too heavy for Mr.Thug here to put down easy. You O.K?' He felt warm all of a sudden, blood? 'No just a little piece of me to keep you warm till the cavalry comes by. They are calling. It won't be long the mall isn't that far away....but do as I said go back.Be safe. Live. Never come back. I was clear wasn't I?' His ears picked up the roar of car engines and the squeal of tires and then silence.Not just from the cars but Jamie. He quickly sprang out of the ghigi and flashed to the road. Gone. Not even lights. He took out his phone and called it in. She'd changed her clothes, and left all but her greenbacks at home. Nothing to track her movements. Space. She'd wanted some common every day space. Something he had refused her from nearly the beginning. "Jamie!" He screamed but all he got was the steady patter of the rain and the occasional crack of thunder and lightning. She had protected him, kept him safe, healed his injury. And begged him to return to the Society and never leave it for his safety and her sake.Perhaps she was indeed right. Yet how could he show his face to the other captains with this on his report. How could he ever live it down. His pride demanded him to save her or at the very least help find her. He owed her that much. As he turned he saw that indeed the thugs had called the rescue squad to come and get him....he sagged and flashed to the body. No she was definitely not in any way like his Hisana, but then again if she could come to the society never having to fear losing anyone for a very long time. Jamie would get bored and go looking for trouble, he smirked slightly. Yes and she would find it undoubtedly. With that thought he slid into his body and curled up as the adjustment was made. Just in time for the spot light to find him. "Holy shit! He's alive! Come on we'll need the ropes and the sled to get him back up here. Come on! Hurry up!"
