The one whose emotions I can’t feel is the one who makes me feel the most.
I was a sensitive, at least that’s what I was told by the boy who saved me from the overwhelming emotions that consumed my soul, the boy who saved me from myself when my gift became stronger. Through the years, he was my redemption, my reason to take my next breath…then, he was gone.

Jensen always told me I was strong, but I didn’t believe him until I was forced to be strong on my own, and I kept breathing without him. I’ve taken 42 million breaths since the moment he sent me away. Now, four years later, he’s standing in front of me, and I can barely breathe.

This isn’t just a story about the abilities I possess; it’s a story about something much stronger…the love of the man who possesses every part of me.

***Disclaimer – Feel is intended for readers 18+ due to strong language, mature scenes, and some violence.


I’m getting ready to open the bedroom door when a shot of someone’s anger, and a heavy case of nerves, hits me right before a hand clamps over my mouth and an arm wraps around my waist, pinning me against someone hard and large.  Stupidly, I try to scream even though I know it will be muffled. 
“Shut-up,” a gruff voice demands, and I bite his hand in response.
“Owww, that fuckin’ hurt!” the voice barks as his arm squeezes my body tighter against his. 
I elbow and twist wildly in response, trying to get a better read on his emotions while mine are drowning in fear. 
“Take it easy,” he spits in between a few groans as my elbow makes contact.
I do the opposite and fight harder, giving all I’ve got.  A sharp pain radiates through my right arm as he twists it behind me and pushes it up my back.  My cry is stifled by his hand that he’s pressing against my mouth and nose, almost cutting off my air. 
He starts dragging me out the back door and down the stairs, and I kick backwards, hitting his shin.  A loud expletive leaves his mouth, and I’m rewarded with another sharp upward thrust of my arm, and I gasp in pain.
“I don’t want to hurt you,” he growls, “so stop fighting me!”
Is he out of his flippin’ mind?  I scream bloody murder as I see a dark gray van.  My heart is beating so hard it hurts.  Using all my strength, I struggle against the creep trying to kidnap me and throw my head back against his nose in a last ditch effort of escape. 
“Sonofabitch!” he yells, but his grip never relents as he pushes me inside the van. 
My body hits the metal floor as the door slams shut.  Raw fear spirals through me as I try to squint through the dark.  My emotions are heightened, clouding his, and I try to calm my panic.  I let out an ear-piercing scream as I lunge for the door, but he blocks my path.  Lashing out, I curl my fist and swing as hard as I can.  My knuckles explode in pain when they crash into his jaw. 
“Will you stop hitting me?” he yells, grabbing my arms and pushing me into a chair. 
“Let me go!” I scream, kicking savagely. 
“You can scream all you want; the van’s soundproof,” he states, his voice sounding as pissed as he feels.  He straddles my lap, and I let out another loud wail.  Slapping his hand over my mouth, he grabs duct tape, “On second thought, shut the hell up.”  He keeps his left arm pressed roughly against my chest and arms as he holds the duct tape with his right hand, ripping two long pieces off with his teeth. 
My eyes begin to acclimate to the dim lighting in the van and I can make out blue eyes and dark hair.  I would think he was attractive if he wasn’t currently taping my wrists to a chair, getting ready to do God knows what to me.  “Let me go, please,” I switch tactics. 
“I need a few answers first, then we’ll see,” he states, pulling against the duct tape to make sure it’s secure. 
“Answers?” My question comes out in a rush as I try to keep from hyperventilating when my wrists won’t even budge against my restraints.  “I don’t know anything.  Just let me go.”
He steps closer and I push back, causing an ear-splitting screech as the metal of the chair slides against the metal floor of the van.  “Don’t touch me, asshole!” I warn, my anger rioting as I feel his burning through me.
  “I’m not going to hurt you,” he barks, looking like he’s about to bust a vein trying to keep from yelling at me.  His eyes darken before he rakes a frustrated hand through his hair and grinds his jaw before speaking to me again, “I’m not the bad guy here.”
Glancing down at the duct tape currently pinning my wrists to the cold metal, I cut my eyes at him, flashing a sickeningly sweet sarcastic smile, “Oh, okay, I get it…so you’re supposed to be the good and cuddly kind of fucked-up, perverted bastard who likes to tie women to chairs, then.”
  Whatever he’s getting ready to say is cut off when the door opens.  The sun blinds me as it pours inside, and I open my mouth to scream but all air flees my lungs when I see him, the one person I ever trusted, ever loved; the one person who ever made me feel safe.  For years, Jensen was my air.  He was my redemption, my reason to take my next breath…then he was gone.  He always told me I was strong, but I didn't believe him until I was forced to be strong on my own, and I kept breathing without him.  I've taken forty-two million breaths since the moment he sent me away.  Now, four years later, he's standing in front of me, and I can barely breathe.  How is it possible that the one whose emotions I can’t feel is the one who makes me feel the most?  That night four years ago sears my soul and the pain threatens to destroy me all over again.
