“Excuse me, you are driving in the wrong direction.”
When Janet looked out of the window, she found that they were already in the wild. The place was uninhabited and was surrounded by an endless stretch of trees.
The car was winding across an unknown path.
Hannah knew her way home better than anyone else. She also realized they were traversing an unknown terrain.
“Ah, this is not the way to our home! Are you deliberately going in the wrong direction?” Hannah anxiously shouted.
Sensing something was wrong, Janet quickly grabbed the driver’s seat. “Stop the car! We need to get out!”
The driver glanced at them through the rearview mirror. He was wearing a mask, leaving only his eyes visible. Before they knew it, he hit on the gas.
Janet and Hannah jerked backwards. Hannah had just undergone the surgery, so she weakly collapsed on the seat. Her lips turned pale in an instant.
The taxi moved in an unknown direction, circling along the winding mountain road.
“I told you to stop the car. If you don’t, I’ll call the police!” Janet took out her phone from her bag and quickly called the police. “Help! A taxi driver has abducted me. I don’t know where I am. There is a maple forest in front of me.”
“Ma’am, calm down, please. Do you remember the license plate’s number? Could you be more specific about where you are and what’s around you? Any clue would be helpful to us.”
Janet couldn’t tell where she was. She couldn’t see the license plate number now and didn’t pay attention to it when she got into the car.
“No. I don’t know. I don’t remember. I’m terrified! Please help me.” Janet’s voice trembled with fright.
“I’m sorry, ma’am. Any landmark or any distinct thing you can spot?”
“No, nothing. It’s a desolate place surrounded by mountains and trees.”
The driver sneered and turned a deaf ear to Janet’s words. Then, he suddenly turned the steering wheel and made a sharp turn.
Sitting in the back seat, Janet jumped with every bump. As the driver took a sharp turn, Janet’s phone flew from her hand and fell down. Janet fumbled around and finally picked up the phone. Unfortunately, by then, the call got disconnected.
Janet propped herself up and looked out of the window. The wind was like a sharp knife, slashing her face.
Just as Janet tried to jump out of the car, her gaze fell on Hannah, who had passed out in her seat.
Janet could easily jump out of the car and escape. But Hannah was old and was just discharged from the hospital. Therefore, Janet couldn’t leave Hannah alone in the car. Janet took out her wallet, gathered all the money, and angrily threw it at the driver.
“I’ll give you all my money. Let us go!”
The driver narrowed his eyes and chuckled. “You b***h! What’s the use of your small bills?”
He ignored Janet’s pleas and drove into a grove.
Not knowing what else to do, Janet called Ethan right away.
When the phone got connected, she shouted, “Ethan, Ethan… the taxi driver has abducted me and Hannah. It looks like we are in a maple forest. But I don’t know the specific location. No one is here. It’s about an hour’s drive from the city…”
Janet controlled her emotions and tried to calmly describe her situation to Ethan.
“Do you have anything to protect yourself? Try escaping or negotiating with the driver. I will be there in 20 minutes.”
Janet felt a sense of invisible security. Ethan’s calmness somehow made her believe she was fine, and that he was coming for her. She trusted him.
However, she was too frightened to notice that Ethan’s voice had never been this cold and serious before.
Hearing that Janet was on the phone, the driver hit the brakes.
Janet’s forehead rammed against the seat, and she cried out in pain. She hurriedly fumbled in her bag. As soon as she touched a pen, she heard the door open.
“You f*****g b***h! Who are you calling?” The driver grabbed fistfuls of Janet’s hair and dragged her out of the car. Then, he snatched her phone.
“Ah! Let go of me!” Janet shouted in horror, kicking her legs and struggling to escape.
