Headphones On Part 6

Luis had been the mysterious person the whole time! A huge amount of thoughts crossed my mind. For example, why would he do this? Is this real? Where are we? WHAT JUST HAPPENED? The last one is 0% exaggerated. I couldn’t believe that Luis was his own kidnapper. Wait. I couldn’t believe that Luis was MY kidnapper. But the voice that I heard in the bank didn’t sound anything like Luis. The voice sounded manly. Like a thirty year old man. Luis was definitely not thirty. I couldn’t think straight. I did not know what was going on. I finally decided to speak.

“Luis! It’s YOU! Why? What? How?” I asked.

“Stop shouting,” he said firmly, “Why: because  I have been in love with you since the day we met. What: I have no idea what you mean by that. How: EASY! I “disappeared” and that made you worried. I have been trying to get you to fall in love with me and it has worked a-”

“In love with you? You think I’m in love with you?”

“Well of course.”

“Why would you think that??”

“Because you’re here, aren’t you?”

“Yeah, AGAINST MY WILL,” I shouted. He came a step closer to me and said, “Just admit it. You love me more than anything, you just don’t know it yet.”

I couldn’t believe what he was saying. I did not love him. AT ALL. Before I really loved him as a friend but now I hate him with all my guts.

I looked at him STRAIGHT in the eyes and said, “I will never love you, YOU just accept it. Now let me go.”

“Hahahaha, how funny. You think that I would just LET YOU GO after all this work that I did? NO!”

“You WILL go to jail for this,” I said as coldly as possible.

My phone had buzzed again. Luis took it, read it, and then showed me.

I said, “LUIS! Please! You’re better than this! Remember when we were five and we went to the park together? Yeah? That was really fun! We bought each other ice creams instead of buying them for ourselves. Then we went to the monkey bars and you dropped your ice cream and you cried. But I made up for it because I let you go down the slide first. Do you remember?”

The evilness had left his voice, “Yeah I remember.”

Luis stared off into space with a hopeful look. Then he snapped back into reality again and said, “But that doesn’t matter, today is what matters!”

He grabbed my phone and started typing.

I had expected him to say: Yes I’m fine, don’t worry. Or something like that.

But when he showed me, I couldn’t believe my eyes.

I started bawling slowly.

“Thank you, Luis. Thank you so much,” I said quietly.

“Okay, I don’t have much time before they come so I’m going to go. Goodbye. Thank you for a wonderful friendship. And I’m sorry,” He walked away.

“Oh, wait. Sorry I forgot you were tied. Here’s your phone and yes. Now goodbye.”

He untied my hands so that I could text if anything else happened. I patiently waited, going through what had happened in my head. I wish I could’ve asked him more questions. Suddenly, there was banging on the door. I closed my eyes trying not to get hit.

Then I heard the door bang open. I still had my eyes closed. I felt a pair of arms wrapped around me and a soft voice say, “Honey, I can’t believe you’re here.”

It was my mother. Right after she said that, I started bawling violently. I couldn’t believe this was over. I wanted to go home. I opened my eyes and saw a bright light. I looked over to my sides and there was a group of police officers trying to get my legs untied. It was over.
