Introduction

мy ѕoυl тo ĸeep


d ι ѕ c l a ι м e r

This is loosely based off of a book called Rescuing Hope that deals with the sex trafficking ring in Atlanta. There will be no in detail discussion of sexual assault, possibly just the mention of it for history backgrounds. If you're offended by this, don't read on.

I glance up at T, my date, as he reaches out to open the door to his apartment. The warm smile he gives me before twisting the doorknob made me feel better than I have since… Well, it made me feel good. We were attending a party he was throwing for one of his friends. As soon as the door was open and we entered the living room, though, I can tell it’s a different scene. There is alcohol everywhere, the smell burns my nostrils, and the stench of weed is overpowering. My heart is beating too fast, I know I’m not supposed to be here. My mom would be disappointed that I’d gone somewhere with a guy I met on the subway. My date places his hand on my back and leans down, “Are you okay?” He asks me. I nod my head and force myself to move forward and plaster a smile on my face for his friends even though I’m slowly sensing that something is very wrong. They shake my hand and all seem very polite until T brings me a cup of what I’m assuming is beer. I look down at it skeptically but take a sip anyways when I feel all the eyes on me. Within a few minutes, my head is funny and the room begins spinning. Then everything goes black. I wake up unable to move my arms or legs, I realize they’re tied to the bed posts. There’s a man in the room. As he walks towards me, I notice he’s one of T’s friends. When I realize what’s about to happen, I scream.

“NOOO!!!” Rose jerked upright in bed. It was the dream again. All of that happened two years earlier but it still haunted her. She glanced around her room and was only reminded of the dramatic turn her life had made. The curtains that lined her window were torn and the carpet was stained. There was another girl on the floor of the room, whom she miraculously hadn’t woken with her scream, and two more sharing the next room. The outside door was locked by T whenever the girls didn’t have a job to do. She had become part of the sex trafficking ring in Atlanta and didn’t have a hope of returning home to her mother.

p l o т

A young man trying to make detective and fresh out of training is put on the case of trying to bring the leader of the largest trafficking ring in Atlanta down. The department doesn’t know the leader’s name or where he keeps his girls. The only thing they do know is how to make an appointment. So, the new cop is going undercover with an older detective as customers to two of the girls, one of which just so happens to be Rose. Will he succeed in his attempt to gather more information to take down the whole operation? And will he and Rose fall in love?

Speech Code: #D52B52



Hope tried to close her eyes and tell herself that it would be over soon, that it was necessary for survival, that without this T would beat her again, but she couldn't get the feeling of the man's lips all over her chest to go away. Every now and then she could feel the cool metal of a wedding ring pass across the skin below her waist and it made her nauseous. What a pig. She thought to herself. Shaking her head and looking up at the ceiling of the nice hotel he had rented for this made her wonder what his wife would think he was spending the money on. A night in a place like this was surely close to $500-$600 and he had only rented it for an hour or so, depending on how long he could last. That thought made Hope shiver a little more, a sign the man took as him pleasuring her.

Ever so gently, she turned her head to look at the clock that lay on the nightstand beside the bed, they had been here doing this and the like for about an hour so it should be over soon. Almost like clockwork, the man pulled away, running his hand completely up her body and making sure to take in every inch of it. He smirked a smile at her that, if it wasn't in this situation, would have made her blush because it truly was a great smile. Being that it was in this situation though, it only made her feel more disgusted at the sight of the man. "You are truly fantastic, my dear. The best I've ever had. I'll be sure to let T know that I want you, and only you, from now on." The man winked as he scooted out from under Hope, leaving her laying on the bed completely nude.

She knew he hadn't paid yet so, as sickening as it was, she rolled over and posed in a way that looked completely natural but she knew from past experience made them tip higher. She had her head propped up under one hand while the other hand was laying on the bed out in the direction of the man, a sign that made them think she wished it wasn't over and boosted their already cocky enough ego. Her legs were scissored over each other and she made her voice sound more like a purr as she spoke, "Thank you, you were quite enjoyable yourself." Gag. "Don't forget my money, please." Hope batted her eyeslashes and smiled ever so sweetly at the man who immediately reached into his wallet and threw a wad of cash at her. "Worth every penny."

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It was well past midnight when Hope returned back to the apartment. Her hair was a mess, as it always was after a job, and she was sure her lipstick was in places other than on her face. She was craving a shower, she couldn't wait to scrub the feeling of that man off of her skin. Unable to enter the apartment without a key, she stood outside the door and waited for T who she knew would show up soon to let her in. As Hope was standing there, she was past by a few people on the street who gave her judgmental looks, automatically knowing what she was. The problem was that they assumed she was there by choice. Yes, she was willingly standing outside the apartment waiting for T when she could run, but she knew what would happen if she tried that. She didn't know downtown Atlanta well, besides the hotels she did jobs at. He would find her before she could get very far and it would be hell after that.

"Hey there, sweetheart." T said as he rounded a corner. "Got my money?" Hope set the wad in his hand and took a small step back, knowing that he could get handsy late at night. He stood there and flipped through the wad for a moment, counting it. "That's my girl. Okay, before I let you in I want you to pass this along to your roomates. Tomorrow night all three of you will be doing a really important job for me. It's with two business men, from what I heard one is just a bit older than you, but the other is in his 40s so I'll let you girls decide who wants to try and get it up for him." T snickered at his own joke. "I'll be here tomorrow to pick you ladies up and take you to the place around 8. Be ready when I get here or else." His voice was menacing as he finally turned the key and let her in.

As Hope shut the door, she heard him darkly say goodnight but she didn't turn back around. Another job tomorrow night... She thought to herself, and she'd done jobs with men in their 40s, but a young face would definitely be refreshing, maybe she could convince her friends to let her take the young one. As she walked deeper into the apartment, she went to go check if anyone was awake.

ImageImageLeah sat on her bed sitting there worrying about Rose she had usually always gotten the creeps on the street and Rose was a nice girl and didn't deserve this but what could she do T was the one who did this to all of them.
Leah sometimes wonders if her parents ever thought about what happened to her like if she died or ran away she thought about them everyday imagining what they would say if they saw her again if they would be even happy to see her what if they were glad that she was gone and ever time she thought these bad thoughts she started crying because she was scared that they might be true in some weird and unlikely way.



ImageImageWhile Leah was waiting up for Rose to get home she started hearing an alarm go off across the street it seemed to be a cop going by for just a second she sat there knowing right now if she said something these police could take her away all she had to do was say something Say something, anything, yell scream you have to get out of here you don't want this say something she thought as she kept on thinking this the cop drove pass and she knew she again had missed her chance of getting out of here but she didn't know what to do she knew if she did escape she wouldn't get far with her being so tried and T might come after her parents at least like this she knew they were alright.



ImageImageWhile Leah was waiting she remembered closing her eyes being so tried not to be able to resit sleep so she feel into a sleep, a dream state of sleep. As Leah was sleeping she heard a jingle of keys and suddenly sat up hearing some talking in the halls then the door opened and she saw Rose standing there looking extremely tried and ready probably for a shower. She looked at Rose and got up out of bed saying "Are you okay I was worried about you." pulling out a chair for Rose to sit down on.

Dialogue and thoughts are in #3333FF



"Eight-thirty tonight? That'll do just fine," the bearded man drawled. "I trust they'll be in the best condition." He lifted the slat of the blinds with a finger and peered through it as he half-listened to the man on the other end ramble his assurances. Of course they'd be in perfect condition, for what you paid only the best, what do you take me for, et cetera et cetera. Hooey. They wouldn't be. Not by his standards. The best condition for those girls would be not being there at all. The best condition for those girls would be safe at home with their families. That simple.

"Good, good," he said absentmindedly into the phone. "Until next time, then." And the line went dead. The bearded man kept his gaze on the gap in the window slats, looking out in silence.

The view from this new room wasn't nearly as nice as the view from his old apartment. From there he had a perfect view of the apartment across the street and the church steeple above it. Whenever he was angry, he looked out that window, and saw the cross high above everything, and he remembered who had the power in the end. In ev'ry age, O God, you have been our refuge, you have been our hope.

Instead he was here, in a fake home for a fake man, for Edward Shaw the mysterious gentleman caller. According to the history he had memorized (and helped create), he had made his fortune in business consultation, improving several businesses' inner workings through sociological analysis. It was simple, believable thanks to the crash course in sociology, and utterly false. Hopefully he would not need it for long: his accent was starting to irritate himself, and he had only been speaking in it for a few days of warming up so far. The beard, too, itched, reminding him why he hadn't grown one since Savannah.

He glanced at the clock. Eight AM. About time to head to Holy Spirit. He took a piece of paper from the desk and scrawled on it:



If you're reading this, I've gone for a walk. I should be back by 9:30. Don't worry, but don't do anything stupid. -E



And done. He took the black knotted cane from its resting place by the door and left, locking the door behind him.

Walking out in public as Edward Shaw felt weird, he realized. He felt like his limp was overdone, didn't look realistic. He wondered if the shillelagh was too obvious. He didn't want Shaw to be too ostentatious: after all, if Shaw were to be shot, Lije McCloud would be the one really shot. Fat lot of good the facade would do him then.

He arrived at the church a few minutes before half-past. He silenced his cell phone, then took a seat midway to the back, knelt, and prayed. Lord, he muttered, "I'm going to be walking in the shadow of perdition for the next few weeks. Maybe longer." He paused, sighed. "I just want to help them. That's what You'd do, right?"

The bell rang, and the ten others in the church stood. The bearded man stood with them. Was it Lije McCloud who was going to Mass, or Edward Shaw? He didn't want to think about it.

The light turned green as Mason pressed on the gas. He was just driving around with no real destination in mind, mostly because he was feeling sick to his stomach. He didn't know how to handle it and he needed time to think, hence the driving. I need a beer He shakes his head, No, no not now. Not after I've been so good.

Mason had been sober for three months, and trying to get sober for much longer. It's true what they say; an addict never stops being an addict. At work, at home, anywhere really he still feels as though he needs to have a beer.

He glances at the clock, "Shit, it's already 10:30. I should get back to the house." The house was not really his, but it was rented by the department for the duration of the case they were on. They were entering the underground of Atlanta, a dark place filled with drugs, prostitutes, and pimps, a veritable hell on earth. The thought of it all made Mason sick to his stomach, he wanted to help them, he really did. However, something are just too hard to stare at. Nietzsche once said, "When you stare into the abyss, the abyss stares at you." And Mason was not impressed at the feeling of being watched, of being found out.

The reason for all this inner turmoil and tumultuous monologue? At 8:30 tonight, Mason and his partner, Elijah McCloud, were going to be "visiting" a small group of women held by a specter with no known identity. Tonight, they are going to gather evidence and hopefully to bring him down quickly. But they are stepping into a world they don't understand. A shadow world, where they must play by shadow rules.

Robin often found herself in this position, curled into the warmth of her covers while listening to the oddly comforting sounds of the bustling nightlife -the inaudible murmurs, gentle rumbling of vehicles and even the odd bark of a dog-, but being unable to allow her eyelids to droop down and call it a night. Sleep, of course, was nothing to be wasted in a profession such as hers; the job itself was so draining and left one wanting to do nothing else but sleep. Yet, it was nights like this one, nights in which Hope was out late, that Robin's eyes remained open, staring blankly at the cracks of the ceiling. She knew that Leah had to still be awake as well, bless that sweet girl's heart.

In an essence, the young brunette of only fifteen reminded Robin of herself in her earlier days. She can vividly recall being only fourteen herself, being thrown into a world of filth and scum that no one should have to deal with. It wasn't just scary, it was horrifyingly frightening in every way. It's not an easy transition to go from sitting at home, comfortable and living with all of those little luxuries such as being able to take a walk in the park or take a hot shower whenever you wanted, to suddenly being immersed in the dirty aspects of the underground sex trade. Not at sixteen, not at fifteen, not at fourteen should anyone have to go through this.

However, it seems that despite Robin being a veteran of the field for almost four years, she's still finding herself unable to fall asleep until she knows Hope is safe at home, just as Leah is. It just goes to show how camaraderie never fades.

Thankfully, it wasn't long until she heard the familiar jangle of keys and the rough twisting of a doorknob, followed by the pitter patter of Leah's feet against the floor. There were words exchanged between the two other girls of the apartment and they drifted towards Robin, beckoning her. Robin had enough of looking at the ugly cracks of her ceiling, herself, as she climbed out from the baby blue of her sheets and followed suit.

Standing at the doorway, looking admittedly exhausted, was her closest and dearest friend: Hope.

Hope had figured the girls would be awake; it was sort of an unspoken rule that no one rests until all three of them are back in the apartment and safe. Once both Birdie and Leah were in the living area, Hope let out an exhausted smile. "Yeah. You know, the usual." She pulled her tangled hair up out of her face and put it into a ponytail. "So when T let me in, he said that there was a job for us tonight. An older guy and a young man; they're apparently some business men so they must be important to him. He's going to pick us up at 8:30 pm so we need to be ready by 8:00 just to be safe."

Although she had meant to wait until she could reach the bathroom, she couldn't keep the disgusting clothes on anymore from her job. She stripped her shirt off and gave an apologetic look to her friends. Of course she still had her undergarments on and due to the lifestyle she was in couldn't be known as the most modest girl, but the other girls saw enough skin on their daily jobs. Shivers ran through her when the scent of the man slew past her nose while taking off her clothes.

She supposed for the job later that night all three of them weren't really needed. T had obviously wanted her or he would have told one of the other girls. She would leave the option open for either Birdie or Leah to stay home but Hope already knew Birdie would let Leah take the leave since she was the newest and the youngest. "Listen," She turned towards Leah, "There's only going to be two guys, so if you want to skip out on this one..." She let the question hang in the air and waited for a response.

ImageImage Leah didn't know what to say she couldn't let her two friends go without her it wouldn't be fair and Hope just went with a guy she was speechless she wanted to say she would do it but she hated it a lot but both those girl didn't deserve the treatment "I can't let you guys do that for me especially you Hope you just came back take a shower and rest I can't let either of you do this for me." Leah knew both girls would deny her to come so to add "But I know you both will say no so before you leave is there anything I can do for you?" she asked to see if they wanted anything or needed anything.





ImageImage
Leah looked at Robin and Hope and waited for them to reply but as she waited she went to the stove and grabbed the kettle. She poured in hot water and put it on medium and waited for it to boil.







ImageImageOnce it was done Leah took out the tea cups and poured the boiling hot water into the tea cups and set one in front of Robin and Hope. "Which flavor of tea would you like?" she asked. Grabbing herself a mango.

"Go in peace, glorifying the Lord by your life."

"Thanks be to God," Lije said with the others. The congregation began reciting the prayer to St Michael, and Lije joined them. As he continued through it, it felt more and more apt to his situation. He was confronting one of the rawest evils in the world, short of murder. He'd seen plenty of murder in his time, both in Savannah and Atlanta. That was bad enough. The victims were dead, hopefully in the light of God. Beyond that, he could not say. But they were dead. These girls were alive.

He gave a short nod to the priest as he shook his hand. "Enjoyed your homily, Father."

"Thank you," the priest said. "Are you new to this parish?"

"Sort of," Lije said in his Edward Shaw voice. "I'm staying around for a few weeks. Business."

"I see," the priest said. "I hope you'll come by Sunday."

"Oh yes," Lije said with a smile. "I'll come by every Sunday when I'm here, Father. You can count on that." Assuming nothing forces me into hiding, he added in his head.

"Excellent," the priest said. "God bless you."

"You too, Father."

With that, he set off for home—the closest thing to home, anyway.




The apartment was empty when he returned. Odd, he thought to himself as he crumpled up the note and tossed it, then sat down to wait for Mason's return.

After walking back to the room that she and Birdie stayed in, Hope grabbed a semi-clean shirt and threw it on over her undergarments. It was way too big, probably something T had snatched from a dealer sometime, so it hung down below her knees. It was comfy, though, and didn't smell of her most recent customer so she was satisfied.

While she was changing, she was thinking. As much as she hated for Leah to go, maybe it would be good for her. She wouldn't have to physically do anything, but she could be there as "something pretty" for the men to look at just in case one of them got bored with the one entertaining them. It would be a good lesson for Leah since she's new, to see how T's most important customers are handled.

Joining the two girls in the main room, she sighed and pointed to the tea she wanted. "Actually Leah, maybe you should come. You won't have to do anything, just be there. It'll be good for you to see how T likes his top shelf customers treated." Hope took a seat on the rickety stool that lay in the center of their small kitchen area and waited for Leah to make her tea. Then she turned her eyes expectantly to Birdie, yearning for her to weigh in on the situation.

After muttering a soft, "Earl gray" to Leah in response to her inquiry, Robin quickly followed Hope's lead and grabbed another one of the rickety stools and sat down. The chair squeaked, one of the poorly painted legs wobbling, threatening to give out and send Robin to the hardwood flooring. Under Hope's expectant gaze, Robin bit her cheek thoughtfully; her own gaze flickered from Hope's face to the young girl preparing the trio tea. Softly, she began, "You know I'd rather you not have to come with us, Leah."

Robin would rather have Leah not have to do anything at all, to be frank. Robin would be content with simply taking care of the other girl, babying her and giving her a life that would make her happy. However, it was something that Robin knew was entirely impossible given their circumstances. Leah lived their at the apartment with them because she did her job and she did her job well. That doesn't stop Robin from wanting Leah to just be a teenager, but, she supposes, she hasn't got much of a say in this matter. "If you really want to come with us, you can. I'd rather not have you put in the front lines, but if you say that you want to learn a few things, you can come along."

She hoped that Leah would remain passive, trying not to catch the attention of either of the two men. Robin and Hope would do their best to entertain the two guys and the job would be over before the three of them knew it. It was simply the matter of keeping Leah safe.

"It's you decision, Lee." Robin sighed.

Leah was pretty surprised they said yes Robin and Hope loved to shelter Leah under there wing Leah didn't mind it though without parents she loved having Robin and Hope they were like her two big sisters. Leah looked at both girls as they sat down and said "I understand I'll stay out of the way and just learn some tricks." said Leah trying to sound a little happy even though they were talking about slavery she kept a smile on her face to make sure she kept living a fact of life she told herself she was just going to have a really difficult one with struggling to have a good happy time so she looked at the girls and said "I'm sorry about this but I hate being alone in the apartment by myself I hear noises sometimes and it freaks me out."Image

Leah scooted closer to the table in her chair and took two cubes of sugar and put it in her tea, grabbed the tea cup and took a sip of it carefully because it was still quite hot.

Hope nodded at Leah's decision. "Alright then." She took a small sip at her tea, cringing backwards when the hot liquid burned her mouth. Standing up, she began to make her way back towards the bathroom, knowing that T would still have the water turned on since they had a big job later in the day. "I'm going to go take a shower. You girls should try to get some sleep. We have a big day tomorrow."

After saying her goodnight's, she walked into the bathroom and turned the shower on, positioning the handle to spit out the hottest water it could. A few moments later, Hope dangled her hand under the water. It was lukewarm. Nothing to complain about, though. She'd been forced to bathe in ice cold water several times before so even a little bit of warmth was a gift. She stripped her body of the clothes she still had on and slipped into the water, closing her eyes and pretending she was back at her old home. That she was bathing in boiling hot water and scrubbing herself with something from Bath & Body Works instead of the generic, scentless stuff she was actually using. That once she was done, there would be steam in the room to keep her warm while she dried off and stepped into clean, untattered clothes. That after exiting the bathroom she would walk into her cozy bedroom and that her mother would come in and say goodnight as she had every night before Hope had been captured.

When she finished with her shower, though, none of that was true. The room was cold and the clothes she put on were barely clean and had holes all about them. Her room she walked into was dirty and bare, and the only person that would come in to say goodnight was Robin and that was only because they shared the room. Climbing into bed, she grabbed onto the blanket tightly and prayed that she wouldn't have that nightmare again. Not tonight. They had a big day ahead of them.

"Thank you, you guys are the best and I don't know what I would do with out you." she said looking at Robin and Hope she stepped up and walked to her bed. Lying down she took off her slippers and hoped into bed she pulled over her covers and grabbed her little bear, hugged it tight and closed her eyes.

Leah tried to keep her eyes shut but truthfully ever since she was gone she can never sleep like a normal person she had nightmares of the men she slept with and couldn't imagine what it was like before all of this stuff but she shock it off and kept her eyes shut and fell asleep thinking about Hope and Robin and her old home.

Re: My Soul To Keep

    I mean should I post?

Re: My Soul To Keep

:v

Hope Ashtkerr responds soon.

Re: My Soul To Keep

Alright sounds good! We're just waiting on fivehours to reply, which won't be but for a few more days and then we can resume the story!

Re: My Soul To Keep

    I suppose I never followed through on reservation rules :/ My FC: Jesse Williams, T's full name is Trece Washington, and his hex color is #388E8E! As for my opinion on hedgehogs? I guess I'm not really an animal person. I like rabbits.

Re: My Soul To Keep

    Hey everyone! Happy to say my T is complete! Please let me know if y'all have any concerns or have your two cents to put into the relationships he shares with the "girls". Also if someone could fill me in further on the plot, where everyone's living, and T's position in general, it would be much appreciated! Thank you!

Re: My Soul To Keep

Sorry, been busy the past few days. About to post. My thoughts: If the girls go missing suddenly, along with the "clients," T's going to get suspicious. He could bolt, or take it out on the remaining girl(s). Lije probably knows this. He'd probably explain the situation to the girls, tail them home to find out where they're being kept, then figure out how to catch T. Get T, the girls can all go home, and if there's a bigger ring, T might be the key to breaking it.

That's how I see it, at any rate. Could lead to some interesting dramatic tension, as I doubt anybody except T wants the girls to go back to the apartment, but like I said, if they take it too quickly, T's going to know something's up.

Just my two cents.

Re: My Soul To Keep

That's a pretty good idea

Re: My Soul To Keep

So, I'm thinking that maybe Leah can be rescued by the cops when they come in for the job but Robin and Hope can go free. Then they'll try to get Leah to talk but she'll be hesitant for a while because she's afraid Hope and Robin will get in trouble? Or T will hurt them if the cops fail?

Let me know what you think!

Re: My Soul To Keep

Yeah, if you're interested in playing him you totally can!

Re: My Soul To Keep

    Hey all! I'm Cas! @The Littlest Mermaid, are you still in need of a character in place of T? Let me know and I'll be totally willing to fill in!

Re: My Soul To Keep

No, your post was perfect! I'm just waiting for @fivehours to reply so we can get the girls all on the same page.

Re: My Soul To Keep

Alright, my post is up. Left it pretty open, though I promise Lije will be back at the apartment next post.

Also, in case it's confusing, my post was assuming that Lije and Mason were to share an apartment, with a possible guise of being business partners or a mentor and pupil (which isn't that far off...). I figure this'll make the apartment a sort of "home base" place for them to talk about the case, but if you had something else in mind I can concede to that.

Re: My Soul To Keep

Hmm, I guess you can post your post whenever, you'll just have to wait for the girls to catch up before we can do the scene where they meet!

Re: My Soul To Keep

I have a post almost ready; however, I planned for it to be set early in the morning of the day Lije and Mason are going to meet the girls. If you want to finish this late-night scene before that, I understand and will wait. If you don't mind a little quentinuity for this part, then I'll post it whenever.

Re: My Soul To Keep

I know, @SaladFingers never made a character though. I suppose we can just make the third roommate NPC or she can just not exist?

I guess we'll forget the existence of the other roommate and get started!

Re: My Soul To Keep

Sooooo........

Re: My Soul To Keep

@Salad Fingers
That's totally fine! Just submit a character sheet when you get ready and then we can start the story!

Re: My Soul To Keep

If you can put up with the fact that I'm new I would like to take on the remaining role with FC: Jessica Stroup and the hex code of: #c0d737 This will be my first foray into a group but I can assure you I have plenty of writing experience.


Hedgehogs are very cute, in fact if I could have on as a pet I would. Unfortunately I'm a horrible pet owner and thus I will never have one as a pet.

Re: My Soul To Keep

Yeah they are! I'm really excited! All we're waiting on is someone to pick up the last roommate. If anyone knows someone who may be interested in playing the part, feel free to reach out to them otherwise we could NPC her or just wait. Whatever you guys are comfortable doing.

Re: My Soul To Keep

Characters are looking good, guys!
