Chapter 1 Adventures in Babysitting
Katie looked at herself in the mirror while she was in the lift, to make sure her outfit was ok. She was wearing a strapless red mini-dress which was buttoned at the front with a hemline that was just below the top of her black hold-up stockings. Next she smoothed her hands over the red calf length high-heeled boots she wore as footwear.
I hope Gary likes this. Katie thought. Iâ€™ve been trying to get his attention for a while now. She knew that Gary worked in administration at the same university that she was studying at and she had developed quite a crush on him. Katie found out that he needed a babysitter for tonight, Friday, and he was offering a lot of money as he was desperate.
Katie decided that she would take the standard rate, rather than what he was offering. It was really a strategy so that he would notice her and maybe develop a relationship. If I dress in my sexiest outfit, maybe he will pay attention she thought. Katie arrived at the door to his apartment. Well, here goes nothing.
Katie pressed the doorbell and waited. After a few moments Gary opened the door. He was looking very smart in his two piece suit. He looked at Katie and said â€œWo-, sorry, come on in.â€ He opened the door wide for her.
Katie stepped into the apartment. It was modestly furnished, but then Gary did have two children to bring up. They were Angela and Zoe, both eleven years old and born nine months apart. The older one, Angela, was blond haired and blue eyed, while Zoe was black haired and green eyed. They both wore identical blue knee-length dresses, white socks and black sandals. Gary explained the rules to Katie and at the end said â€œI will be back at half-past ten. You two girls must be in bed by ten oâ€™clock, understand?â€
The two girls nodded their heads and said â€œYes dad.â€
Katie then saw Gary out, then sat down on the settee and settled down to study. It would be three hours before Gary would return. While she studied, the girls played with their console, watched television, etc. Time passed relatively quickly.
The next thing Katie realised was that Zoe was trying to get her attention. She put down the book that she was reading and calmly said â€œWhat is it Zoe?â€
â€œCould you play a game with us?â€ Zoe asked.
Katie looked at the time. It was quarter past nine. â€œYou do know that you have to be in bed for ten, donâ€™t you.â€
â€œYes,â€ Zoe answered â€œbut we will stop playing the game before then, promise. So will you play?â€
â€œWell, tell me what the game is first.â€ Katie enquired.
â€œIâ€™d like to play a game of cops and robbers, if thatâ€™s all right with you.â€ Zoe replied.
What parts are you two playing?â€ Katie asked.
â€œWe play the evil bank robbers first, and then play the cops after.â€ Answered Zoe.
â€œSo what part do I play?â€
â€œYou play the part of a kidnapped bank worker.â€ Angela said.
â€œWhat happens to me?â€ Katie asked.
â€œWe take you hostage and tie you up, then as the police, rescue you.â€ Angela answered.
â€œOkay, â€œ said Katie â€œbut Iâ€™m to stay tied up for ten minutes, and only have my hands and feet tied, do you understand?â€
â€œYes.â€ Said Angela and Zoe.
â€œSo, now what are you going to do?â€ asked Katie.
Angela answered â€œFirst weâ€™ll go to our bedroom and get some rope and toy guns, then we come back in, take you prisoner and tie you up. Then leave and come back in as the cops and rescue you.â€
â€œWell, that sounds ok.â€ Said Katie â€œShall we start now?â€
â€œYes.â€ Said the two girls and they left the room. About twenty seconds later, they re-entered the living room, each carrying a toy pistol and a piece of rope.
Angela pointed her gun at Katie and said â€œPut your hands up.â€
Katie did so saying â€œPlease donâ€™t hurt me, Iâ€™ll do whatever you want.â€
Zoe went up to Katie and put the toy gun to her back.
â€œNow walk over to the space in front of the television.â€ Zoe ordered.
â€œYes, just donâ€™t hurt me.â€ Said Katie as she walked over to the clear space in front of the television, with Zoe following behind.
Zoe pressed her gun into Katieâ€™s back. â€œNow lie face down on the floor.â€ She ordered.
Katie did as she was told. Zoe now said â€œPut your hands behind your back.â€
Katie put her hands behind her back, saying â€œYouâ€™re kidnapping me arenâ€™t you?â€
Angela replied â€œYes. Weâ€™re tying you up as our hostage.â€
Katie watched as Zoe knelt at her ankles and Angela knelt at her waist.
Simultaneously, Katie felt rope being wrapped around both her wrists and her ankles. First the rope went around her ankles and wrists, then looped around between them, pulling the ropes tight.
Finally Katie felt the knots being tied. This was feeling a little unusual. Here she was, a grown woman, and she had just been bound hand and foot by two eleven year old girls. She struggled at the ropes, but they stayed put. Katie realised that she wasnâ€™t going to get free easily.
Angela said â€œZoe and I are going to our room for a few minutes, then weâ€™ll come back as cops and rescue you.â€ Katie nodded and continued struggling.
As the girls left the room Katie imagined that she had actually been kidnapped and that Gary would rescue her. She thought about him putting his arms around her and then kissing her on the lips.
â€œBack now.â€ Angela said Katie opened her eyes. Angel and Zoe were standing there, with a large bag. â€œDonâ€™t worry miss, we caught the crooks and recovered the money and now we can free you.â€ Angela and Zoe knelt on either side of Katie at her waist.
â€œCould you please lift your feet up? It would make it much easier to untie your ankles.â€ Zoe said.
Katie did as she was asked and raised her feet into the air. Her lower legs were now at a 90 degree angle. She could feel Zoe and Angela fiddling with the knots on her feet.
Katie was caught by surprised by what happened next. The two girls pushed her feet practically into her backside. Stunned by what was being done to her, Katie then felt rope being wrapped around the bonds on her wrist and then being taken back to her ankle, then it was being tied off with knots at her wrists, out of reach of her fingers.
Theyâ€™re tied my hands to my feet! Katie thought. Itâ€™s so tight, I can even feel my boots with my hands! Theyâ€™re going to be in trouble for this!
â€œLet me go! You let me go this instant!â€ Katie demanded â€œYou are going to be in so much trou-â€œ Katieâ€™s demands were suddenly stifled when Angela put a large sponge into Katieâ€™s mouth, almost filling it. Next, Angela got a scarf and wrapped it around Katieâ€™s mouth, holding the sponge in place. With muffled â€œmmmmâ€™sâ€ Katie realised that she was very effectively gagged.
Next, Angela sat on top of Katie and got some rope out of the bag. She wrapped the rope around Katieâ€™s elbows, pulling them together. Then Angela wrapped the rope vertically, cinching it and pulling elbows even closer together. Finally, the rope was tied off and Angela stood up.
â€œmmmm, mmmmm.â€ Was all that Katie could say. Iâ€™m helplessly bound and gagged and at the mercy of two eleven year old girls! This is not funny! What are they going to do with me?
She didnâ€™t have to wait long to find out.
â€œShall we go to bed now?â€ Zoe asked Angela. â€œWe normally leave these women for dad to find when he gets home. They never babysit for him again.â€
â€œThis is different,â€ answered Angela â€œThe other women turned up in jeans and t-shirt. This one is in a dress, like she is going out with someone. She really wants to steal dad from us so that we never see him again.â€
â€œYes.â€ Said Zoe, â€œIf he goes off with her, weâ€™ll never see him again and he wonâ€™t love us anymore, just like what happened with mummy.â€ Zoe started to sob.
Angela hugged and comforted Zoe to stop her crying. â€œI know, mummy left with a doctor and sheâ€™s never come back. It shows that she doesnâ€™t love us, but dad still does. Letâ€™s make sure that this woman wonâ€™t steal dad from us.â€
Garyâ€™s wife ran off with another man? I never knew that? Katie thought.
â€œShe put on that dress to make him look at her. I saw the way dad looked at her. Without the dress, he wonâ€™t look at her and she canâ€™t steal him from us.â€ Angela said
â€œYes,â€ Zoe responded â€œand you know how angry dad is if we are not dressed. He will be very angry at the babysitter.â€
Youâ€™re kidding! Theyâ€™re not going to remove my dress! This is ridiculous!
Angela and Zoe rolled Katie onto her left side.
This canâ€™t be happening! Iâ€™m going to be undressed by two kids. I should have worn t-shirt and jeans after all!
Angela started to undo the buttons on Katieâ€™s dress, from the top to the bottom. When all of the buttons were undone, Angela simply pulled on the dress and it came away from Katie.
Katie blushed shamefully. She was now lying on the floor in her underwear.
â€œAngela,â€ said Zoe, â€œWe do want to make dad really angry at the babysitter, donâ€™t we?â€
â€œYes?â€ said Angela â€œWe do.â€
â€œRemember after bath-time once? Daddy was very angry because we didnâ€™t get dressed? Well, if the sitterâ€™s not wearing anything like we were, then dad will be very very angry at her.â€
â€œThatâ€™s right,â€ Angela said. â€œOk you deal with the bottom and Iâ€™ll do the top.â€
â€œmmmm, MMMMMâ€ said Katie.
No ! This canâ€™t be happening! Katie struggled as much as she could, which to be honest, was not much.
Angela undid the clasp at the front of Katieâ€™s bra after some fiddling and then took it off Katie. Zoe pulled Katieâ€™s panties down to her knees, then around the bend at her knees and finally to Katieâ€™s ankles.
Oh God! This is so shameful Katie thought These kids have stripped me naked! I should have never let them tied me up! Gary is going to be mad at me when he gets back. Iâ€™ve let him down completely!
â€œOne final thing.â€ Said Angela. She rolled Katie back onto her front. Then Angela got another piece of rope and tied it to the back of Katieâ€™s gag.
Whatâ€™s she going to do now? Thought Katie.
Angela looped the rope around the wrappings at Katieâ€™s elbows and then pulled gently but firmly on the rope. Katieâ€™s head was pulled off the ground and soon was as far back as it could go. Angela then tied the rope off. Katieâ€™s neck started to ache a little.
â€œLetâ€™s go to bed now,â€ said Angela. â€œSHEâ€™S not stealing our dad away from us, the way our mummy was stolen.â€ With that, they left Katie alone in the room with her thoughts.
Katie looked at the clock on the video recorder. It said ten past ten.
Oh No! Iâ€™ve got less than twenty minutes to get out of this! Katie started to struggle, bend, twist, writhe, trying anything she could get to find some measure of freedom.
After fifteen minutes, Katie gave up, sweaty, exhausted and with no hope.
Itâ€™s over! She thought. Heâ€™s going to find me like this, bound, gagged and naked and heâ€™s never going to speak to me again. Iâ€™ll be lucky if he doesnâ€™t call the police.
Katie started to quietly sob as the futility of her situation sunk in. She lay there helpless, oblivious to the time and she never even heard the front door open...
