Doors To Mirrors (Excerpt 166) Paralyzed
“Come on sweetheart, it’s time to get up.” A voice whispers in Nadja’s ear.
“What?” She questions as she opens her eyes.
She is lying in bed, on her right side, and the room is dark. Trying to let her eyes adjust to the low lighting, she blinks them several times but the heaviness of them cause this simple feat to be exhausting.
“Come on, let’s go.” The voice says in a louder and more demanding tone.
It is now that she recognizes the voice to be Aaron’s. The persistent manner, the lack of expression, there is no doubt in her mind it is him. As she tries to turn to look behind her, she feels paralyzed unable to move freely. Now with her mind and eyes fully awake, she feels the adrenaline in her body growing to a higher level. Glancing a few feet away into the mirror of her wardrobe, she can see a silhouette of him sitting on the bed behind her.
“No, this can’t be.” She murmurs to herself.
“Oh yes it can.” He whispers close to her ear, so close she can feel the breath from his words.
“No, I cannot go with you, this isn’t right!” She says loudly now wondering where Viktor is.
Trying with all her might to free herself from this paralyzed state, she wiggles her fingers and toes and attempts to roll over. To her amazement, nothing is working, she cannot move a muscle in her body and she begins to wonder if Aaron has drugged her with something and she begins to yell out!
“Viktor! Carl! Someone help me!” She screams as tears begin to run down her cheeks. “Please! I need help!”
“Nadja?” She hears from somewhere in the room but she does not see anyone.
“Please, help me!” She cries out with great fear.
“I’ve got you, you’re okay.” Viktor says as he holds Nadja in his arms.
“What?” She questions as she looks up at him.
She then quickly jumps out of bed pressing her back up against the wall of her bedroom as Viktor stands but keeps his distance.
“What is going on?” Nadja questions in a confused way.
“I don’t know, you were yelling out in your sleep, you sounded desperate and when I came in to check on you, I could hardly wake you up.” Viktor says as he stands still.
“Oh my god.” Nadja says as she begins to cry.
Viktor immediately rushes to her and takes her in his arms. Holing her tightly to him, he looks around the shadowy room for he feels very uncomfortable, as if someone is there.
“Let’s go to the fireplace.” He says as he holds her with one arm and grabs her soft robe with the other. “It is freezing in here.” He says as he kicks the door open a little more than it was, and rushes her to the sofa.
“What happened? How did he get in?” Nadja questions as if she is half-asleep.
“There is no one here.” Viktor answers but his senses tell him this is not entirely true. “I don’t see anyone, Nadja.”
“It was Aaron, he was here, on my bed.” She whispers and for some reason the way she is speaking frightens Viktor.
“Stay here, I’ll go check.” Viktor says in a low tone.
