Excerpt from “Redemption” Chapter 10
Ian tapped his fingers against his knees as he searched for how to bring up the subject he’d been wondering about for hours. “Truth or dare?”
“What?” Becca asked, practically laughing out the syllable. “This is really not the place to be doing any kind of dare.”
“Truth it is then.”
She twisted in her seat to meet his stare. “What do you want to know?”
He wiped his hand across his brow, preparing to ask the question. Any way he phrased it, he had a feeling it wouldn’t come out right. He knew Abe had something to do with what he had seen on her back that morning, and he wanted to know why.
“I think if I’m going to be your fiancé for that Abe guy’s benefit, I should at least know why.”
She nodded as she dipped her head down. She had hardly ever talked about what had happened except with Lily; Sam hadn’t even known. She felt the heat rise to her cheeks at the thought of those last weeks with Abe. Her palms got clammy, her pulse started to race. She took a deep breath before launching into what was sure to be a very long explanation.
“As you probably noticed, Abe’s not exactly human.”
“It’s the eyes.” He nodded as he blinked overtly.
“I met Abe while he and Lily were working at Manchester. I knew, with our obvious differences, it would never end well, but I never imagined…” She took a long, deep breath. “Abe is a shadow walker. He can pull you into his shadow and transport you anywhere.”
“Hence, the not touching thing?”
“Exactly,” she replied, trying to figure out where to start. At the beginning of the end, she guessed. “It all went to hell when I got assigned to ‘The Monitor’s’ task force a little over three years ago.”
“You were going after that guy? The one who burns his victims?” The vision of the scar on her back came blaring in his mind. A crescent shaped burn put there by a serial killer.
“Yes, much to Abe’s disappointment. He became extremely overprotective and went to the ends of the earth trying to find any being that would be able to help us find the mad man. Abe has visions too. They work differently and for some reason were being blocked when he tried to use them for the case. He did find someone else to help eventually – Gideon. Gideon had the power of foresight and was able to possess almost any living thing. He had been banished decades ago, but Abe assured me that Gideon had visions of The Monitor. We went to meet Gideon, only to find that the truth was…Gideon was The Monitor.”
Ian nodded as he realized why The Monitor had never been caught. “He was possessing people to do his killing for him.”
“He ended up torturing us for weeks. His favorite way to torture me was through Abe. Gideon would take over Abe’s body and beat me into unconsciousness, but I wouldn’t break. He’d burn me just like the rest of his victims and still, I didn’t break. One morning, he strapped me down to a table with leather straps. I was so weak at that point I could barley move, but I promised myself that I would never let him break me. That’s when Gideon came to me as Abe for the last time. He ripped the clothes from my body and crawled on top of me. He raped me as Abe and I couldn’t even cry out for the real Abe lost inside of him.”
Final Thoughts: I am one sick bastard, it was what I was created for. Hurting Rebecca was one of my bigg
est regrets. But hear me now, I will stop at nothing to make her mine. One way or another, she will be by my side…forever.
