MILLSOP Chapter 29


A Sheet was wrapped around Alice

Archie recognized the voice on the line as being Alice. He said; “Alice where are you?”  In between her incoherent statements he understood her to say; "Archie, come and get me."
 
His mind was filled with confusion and fear for he didn't understand what was going on.

After some time she repeated; come and get me Archie and bring me some clothes.

He asked, “What do you need?” because he thought she wanted a coat or something.  

Instead she said, "I need everything".  

He still didn't know where she was so he asked; “Where are you?”

She said, “I don't know, it’s some room like a hotel room.”  He told her, “Look on the door and see if the name and number of the room where you are is listed there.”

She said, “Okay I will try.”  After a couple of minutes she came back to the phone and gave him the name of the hotel and the room number.

As it turned out it was a cheap hotel in a bad part of town. Archie entered the lobby of what at one time had been a decent establishment.  Now it was occupied mostly by men who were having a hard time making ends meet, and the smell of liquor was present.

Archie went over to the elevator which had a sign on it, "Out of order use the stairs."  
 
He climbed the stairs to the second floor and found the room number.  When he tried the door it opened as it was not locked.
 
Entering the room, he saw Alice huddled in the corner with a sheet wrapped around her, and a man sitting on the bed with a half empty bottle in his hand.

The man looked at Archie and said, “What you want?”  Archie told the man he could leave now or he would help him out. The guy decided to leave and stumbled unsteadily down the hall.

Archie then turned his attention to Alice who had dropped the sheet, and was standing there completely naked.

Before, Archie always enjoyed seeing his wife without clothes on, but in this situation he was repulsed by what he saw.
   
He helped her dress, and kept her steady as they left the premises. By the time they reached their apartment Alice was a little more coherent and said, “I want to take a shower,”  to which Archie said, “Go ahead no one is stopping you.”
 
Archie was numb as he sat down in a chair. The whole series of events had stunned him. He decided he needed some coffee to calm himself down for he didn't know what he might do when Alice finished her shower.

He had his coffee and was sitting on the couch when Alice came out. Neither said anything but she sat next to him and put her head in his lap. Having her next to him changed the whole mood of the moment, because he was so glad to have her back safe he couldn't think about anything else.

They sat there holding each other until it was time for Archie to go to work and he slipped out and dressed. When he came back she was asleep, so he covered her with a blanket and left her there asleep after kissing her on the forehead.

When he arrived at work Marcy said, “A package had just arrived by messenger,” and she placed it on his desk.  He set it aside for the moment even though it said urgent on it.

An hour later he opened the package and inside there were photographs of Alice completely nude with a man lying next to her on the bed.

There were several pictures of her in several lewd positions. The accompanying letter said these pictures would be sent out to the news papers and T.V. stations unless he cooperated with them.

They wanted to know about the work he was doing on the big merger the firm was working on.

Archie figured if he did what they wanted his firm would lose millions of dollars by losing the deal.

As Archie looked at the pictures anger rose up in him that he had never experienced before, and just that quick he decided what he must do.
