The small boat continued to make it's way through the river,with the thick,surrounding jungle on both sides.
As stated earlier,it was only a small boat,and there weren't many people on it.At the bow,were two native men,who kept a watchful eye.Both of them were very strong,and armed with sheathed knifes.They could still see some of the dangerous wildlife that lived here,especially snakes that were curled up along the overhanging tree branches.
Fortunately,none of these reptiles made any hostile move against them,but the two natives still kept their eyes sharp.
Steering the boat at the stern,was another man.Unlike the local natives with him,this man was European.He was tough,having lived in the jungle for so long.Sweat beaded his forehead,but he wasn't nervous.Instead,a lustful,almost cruel smile was visible on his face.
The reason he was smirking,was that he couldn't stop looking at his prize he was taking with him on the boat.His 'prize' was actually a young woman.Like himself,she was dressed in jungle fatigues.A green shirt with breast pockets either side.She wore green jungle trousers like himself too.There was a holster secured around her waist,but the holster was empty,unlike his own gunbelt.
His smile stayed,as he knew there was no need to use his weapon.The woman sat with her back to the boat's edge.Her hands were tied securely behind her,and her ankles also secured tightly together.
The man continued to stare lustfully at his captive,fondly remembering when he'd tied her up.He hadn't just bound the girl hand and foot.Instead,he'd added more ropes over her,relishing as he'd wound the horizontal loops over her shirt.He'd tied four loops above and below her chest,and had even tied her knees together,rendering her totally helpless.
She was looking back at him,but there was no smile on the girl's face.Her eyes were wide and fearful,as she then heard the man say to her:'Not long now,my dear.Then,we can spend some time together.Won't that be nice?'
There was no verbal response,at least,not an intelligible one.Nor was he expecting one from his prisoner.After he'd finished tying her up,the man had taken the precaution of tying a gag over the girl's mouth.He'd tied it tight,keeping her hopes of possible screams for help,to a bare minumum.She was actually mumbling behind the gag,but only he could hear them,so he was satisfied she was effectively silenced.He'd received reliable intelligence,that the girl had friends close by,and were looking for her.
Well if they're female friends,he smirked to himself,I'll be more than happy to receive them.He already had a couple of her pretty friends,similiarly bound and gagged back in his hideout.If there was any heroes searching for them,they'd have their work cut out.
This made him smile even more,and it increased when he finally saw their destination.A small village,comprising several thatched huts,with several of the inhabitants standing,watching them approach.
He guided the boat alongside the battered,but still stable jetty.The two natives standing on the bow,now jumped ashore,and with long experience behind them,secured the boat.
With this done,the man then switched off the engine,and after he'd done so,turned and grinned down at his captive.
She really is a beauty.He thought,admiring the girl's looks.She had dark hair,just falling on her shoulders,and her figure was quite impressive,especially her chest.The girl noticed his look at her body,and her eyes were now more alarmed.
She mumbled fearfully into her gag,as the man suddenly reached down,and promptly lifted her over his shoulder.He too,jumped ashore,carrying his prize.
He carried the girl into one of the huts,and was pleased with what he saw.
There were two more native men standing silently.These were the guards he'd posted,to keep watch over the three other girls,also tightly bound and gagged.
The three women stared instantly at his entrance.They'd been tied sitting on the floor of the hut,all next to each other,and their eyes were shocked,now seeing he'd brought in another trussed up woman.The three mumbled in protest into their gags,but just like the new girl he'd brought in,not one of the women could speak.
He put the girl he was carrying gently down,but had also placed her back against a wooden support in the hut.He held her in place,gesturing to one of the native guards,who immediately understood.The man stepped forward,and brought out more coils of rope.He then wound more of the coils around the girl's upper body several times,lashing her to the post.He secured these new ropes tightly,making sure their newest prisoner,wouldn't be able to break free.After he'd done so,the native stepped back,and resumed his guard duty.He and his colleague stared expressionless,at their pretty,bound and gagged prisoners.
Satisfied once more,the man still knelt by his latest prize,and placed his hand under the girl's chin.He lifted her head slowly,pleased to see the girl too frightened to resist his touch.
'You just stay there,my pretty.'He told her,still smiling.'I've just got to do some checking first.I'm not discounting the possibility,that there's a rescue party coming for you and your pretty friends.I don't want any of you to escape my clutches,and you'll see what I have in mind for you,and soon.'
He couldn't resist giving the girl,a loving kiss on her forehead.He could tell she didn't appreciate it,but laughed arrogantly.There was nothing she could do about it.he sneeringly thought.
'Don't go away,ladies.'he warned them.The menace was fully evident,as he continued.'I'll be back soon to explain why you're here.After of course,I've had my fair share of you all.'
He heard the frantic,but still faint mumbling from the four gagged girls,and his evil smile got more wider.With that unpleasant thought he left for them,he stood up and left the hut.The four bound,gagged girls,now dreading what was in store for them.
To be continued?
Goodbye to all that
