Missing - Chapter Eight

After hearing the commotion downstairs I had to take a look to see what was going on. As I came to the doorway to the main hall, I could see Dimitri, Chris, Sandy and my parents talking about something.

"Are you definitely sure?" my father asked Sandy. "Yes its been confirmed," she replied to him. I didn't know what they were talking about but what ever it was, it had both my parents upset.

"Hanna and her boyfriend are missing, but the guardians were not so lucky. His guardians had their throats ripped out. There was blood everywhere! I should have never agreed to letting Jacob taking watch. It was all my fault!" she explained. My father became pale and bewildered, almost breaking down into tears.
While my mother went on a frantic rampage of emotions. First crying, then screaming. They eventually helped her to her room to see if they could calm her. All I could think of was why no one was telling me anything.

That's when Dimitri spotted me as I bumped into the shelf beside the door.

"Go tell Emily what's going on while I help organize the search team," I hear Dimitri tell Chris.

Chris joined me in the living room with a grave face. "What's going on? Where's Hanna?" I asked.
"After you got home from school today, your sister and her boyfriends car was found only a hour ago. Your sisters guard and her boyfriends guards were murdered," he was explaining but I had to interrupt him. "What about my sister," I demanded. "Well that's the thing, they haven't found her or her boyfriend. Their still searching but haven't found any leads to her yet," he explained.

"Why would anyone do something so horrible?" I asked. "We're not sure. Probably for money or something like that. I'm sure they will call or send a letter demanding something soon," he tries to reassure me.
But that didn't seem to work. I began to panic. My heart was racing, threatening to jump out of my chest as I imagined the worst. I couldn't hardly breath by this point.

And then the tears came. Running down my cheeks as I fell apart.

I felt my knees go weak as I crumbled down to the ground.
Chris didn't know what to do with me. I was crying and sobbing uncontrollable. I felt like someone had just ripped me apart. I started to get really dizzy with spots dancing in my vision when Dimitri appeared and bent down pulling me into his arms. I buried my face into his chest and cried.

"It's OK, they will find her," he whispered.
I don't know what it was about Dimitri but he had a way of calming me. I closed my eyes wrapping my arms around him tighter as I found a bit of comfort from the pain. 
Dimitri picked me up out of the floor pulling me into his arms. I wrapped my arms around his neck and nuzzled my face to his. "It's going to be ok. We will find your sister," he whispered into my ear.   Oh he was my comfort and everything at that moment. 
"Sleep," he demanded. "I can't while she's out there all alone," I replied between my sobs. "She's not alone, her boyfriend is with her. I'll stay right here, so try and rest," he told me trying to comfort me. But I couldn't relax. I wish I could tap into her so I could find her. I closed my eyes hoping that I could feel her. I knew she was alive, but for how long I wasn't sure.

  2. Oh, I hope they are okay, and that Emily can see where she is! I can just feel how worried they all are. Both of her guards murdered!
