Keric looked down and told her to get out of his face. Nichol was devastated and thought maybe she said too hurtful of things and felt terrible. Nichol got dressed and was heading towards the door.
“Where the hell are you going?”
“I’m leaving to get some fresh air, I need sometime alone.”
Then out of know where Keric grabbed Nichol by her hair and dragged her from the front door back into the room and closed the door.
“What are you doing? What’s wrong with you?”
Before she got another word out Keric slapped her. Nichol could feel her face sting with pain and started to cry and then Keric kneeled in front of her.
“Look I’m sorry but you can’t just leave when damn well please.”
He pulled a white pill from his pocket and forced it down Nichol’s throat. She fought him as hard as she could but he grabbed her nose and held it open forcing her to breathe through her mouth.
“Swallow it or I’ll make you swallow it.”
Nichol did and started screaming and he threw her on the ground and she took off running. Nichol didn’t make it down the stairs before she felt her body stop moving.
“What’s happening to me? What have you done?”
She looked up at Keric standing at the top of the stairs saying something but couldn’t make out the words. Keric walked down the stairs and picked her up and leaned into her ear.
“You can never leave.”
