The Ties That Bond
In the small town of Roxbury, New Hampshire, everyone knows everybody. In that small town, children could run to the corner store and buy a gallon of milk or a loaf of bread for Mom a half a mile down the road and return for dinner happy as a clam. One such young woman was doing just that when she was picked up by a man in a blue van. It was a nondescript van stripped of license plates and had been seen by two boys. Police didn't get too far and the town went out of their way to help the family in need.
Claire Beck moved to the town when she was six years old. She moved into an old decrepit house that was owned by an older gentleman trying to get out after living in the house for years after his wife of fifty years passed. Claire moved into the house with her older brother Jeremy and parents Johnathan and Maria Beck. For most of her life, she lived happily. Claire was living the life intended for her until she was up and taken from that corner market she had gone to every Thursday. She was just fifteen. At first, she feared for her life, begging her captor to let her go. He refused. Again, the next day, she asked if she could return home to her Mama and Papi. Again, he refused. On that went, begging to be let go so she could go home, ignoring the food he brought her, ignoring the water he gave her each morning to drink of the long night of cries that echoed in that chamber.
It got to the point where Claire could not ignore the food any longer. She had to eat or else she would starve to death. The man who had taken her nursed her back to health, giving her nourishment she would help her gain the weight she had lost after not eating. He had become sweet to her. Still, Claire yearned for her family back in Roxbury but she quit asking for him to let her go, knowing that it would not get her the family she so desperately wanted to see. Claire still had no clue to the name of her Captor having always been told to call him "Sir" or "Mister". Once he had played with the idea of Master, but Claire hadn't been fond of that one. Again, Sir had surprised her and said he understood and left it at that. This had gone on for two years before he brought up the idea of Master once again when she was fourteen. Again, she found herself shaking her head backing away. [Claire/Captor] Send me a PM if you're interested.
