A/N: This is my very first request yay! I would like to thank Anon for taking their time to request this. Another Sam Drake imagine, it’s a lot longer than I thought it would be. Please excuse my crappy writing and I hope you enjoy.
It was late in the evening, and you were lying on your bed not being able to go to sleep or it would rather be the case that you didn’t want to go to sleep. Eyeing the clock on the night stand in the corner of your eye waiting for another minute to pass which seemed to go so slow. Finally losing all patience you turn your head to the side to finally look at the clock.
11.23pm it clearly displayed, sighing and turning your head back to face the ceiling you couldn’t help but wonder where was Sam. He was already gone for a couple of hours, so you wondered if he’s going to get back home anytime soon. Earlier this evening Sam had gone off to visit Sully to discuss something which seemed of high importance, before he left he didn’t exactly mention how long he would be gone for but you assumed it wouldn’t be more than one or two hours. You were wrong.
This waiting game was taking a toll on you, no longer being able to stay still you got up from the bed and walked over to where the window was. Looking outside the window it was almost pitch black and you could hardly see anything outside. You hoped that your boyfriend was okay and that nothing bad had happened. Walking away from the window you reach down on top your desk where your phone was placed. Just as you were about to grab a hold of it you heard a sudden knock on the door.
Initially startled by the sudden thump on the door, you completely forget about the phone and rush over to the door to greet your loving boyfriend. “Hey it’s about time you got ba-” You couldn’t even finish your sentence as you opened the door, because to your surprise it was not Sam you were greeted by but instead two men stood in your doorway. One of the seemed to be hurt pretty badly with a wound on his forehead with blood dripping down. Whereas, the other man was holding his wounded friend with his arm slung across his shoulders.
“Are you alright?” Shocked, you asked the wounded man.
“Not exactly” The other man replied instead, “You see we got into a car accident and my friend here is hurt pretty badly. My phone got damaged in the accident so I have no way of contacting the ambulance, please could you help us?” He sounded so desperate, but I completely understood with the situation he was currently in.
“O-of course, I’ll go and get my phone!” You nodded to the man who was holding his friend. But before you could turn around to head inside for your phone the man stopped you. “Please, can we come inside? My friend, I don’t think he can stand like this any longer."
Seeing how hurt his friend was with blood still dripping down his forehead, without hesitation you opened the door wider to let both men in. Not thinking twice about helping out these two men, you turn back around to retrieve your phone which was left on your desk. As you were about to reach it, you suddenly were knocked hard into the ground.
It had all happened so fast. You curl yourself together taking in the sudden pain you were experiencing throughout your body, and still not realising what was happening. Not given another moment, you were grabbed by two hands which took a hold of your arms to be flipped around just to be slammed back into the ground. Your whole body shook in pain, and just as you were about to scream the attacker placed a hand over your mouth to silence you.
The man with the wound on his head you had let in earlier was now on top of you with one of his hands placed over your mouth and the other was holding a knife, which was placed near your neck. "Scream and I’ll cut you!” He threatened you. Complete fear had taken over you, your breathing had increased and you felt like you were about to have a panic attack. The man still held a tight grip on you, “Now don’t do anything stupid, tell us where your money is and nothing bad will happen to you” He said whilst still holding the knife close to your throat almost as if he was toying with you.
Trying to calm yourself down and getting your breathing back to normal, you slowly nodded to the man indicating that you were willing to comply with his demands. He steadily took his hand away from your mouth to let you speak, but the knife still remained in the same position as before.
“I-it’s in the bag…my purse it’s in the bag” you said as you tried not to sound too shaken.
The man instructed his partner to rummage through the apartment to find your bag with the money in it. With his partner preoccupied he turned his attention back to you, looking down at you with a smirk on his face, “Now that wasn’t so hard was it sweetheart.” You dared not to move, still scared about what he might do to you.
Minutes had passed which felt like hours, his partner still hadn’t returned with the bag. It almost felt too silent to which the man was getting impatient about. Calling out to his partner and getting no response, he was becoming more agitated leaving you more scared than ever. “What the hell is going on?” He snapped at you, taking his free hand and grabbing you by the throat.
Feeling his grip tighten around your neck, you felt like all life was being drained out of you. Just as you were about to lose conciseness his grip loosened and his body was flung away from you. You could hear a loud thud hit the ground, trying to understand what was happening in the midst of all this, you try to pick yourself up from the ground to see what was going on, barely being to hold up.
“Get off her you bastard!” You heard Sam’s voice, who was now fully enraged and kicking off on the guy who was lying the floor. Slamming the man back into the ground, he takes no time in between to punch the man in his face continuously. At this rate he was going to kill him, “Sam!” You manage to weakly call out to your boyfriend, to which gets his attention towards you. He stops his fists from making contact with the target in front of him, who clearly was unconscious by now with a bloodied face. This time with real blood. Shoving the unconscious man to the side, Sam rushes over to help you up.
When you finally get to look at him, his face full of worry, “(Y/N) are you hurt?” He places both his hands on each side of your shoulders trying to hold you still. Your body hadn’t stopped shaking since you were in such shock. You felt so weak right at this moment, it was such relief to see Sam. Overwhelmed by the events that had occurred, you didn’t even get the chance to say anything before collapsing into his chest. Before passing out completely you could vaguely hear Sam’s voice, “It’s okay baby, you’re safe now.”
Finally coming to your senses you peeked your eyes slightly open just to find yourself in an unfamiliar room, this definitely wasn’t your apartment. You tried to tilt your head slightly which still hurt, not to mention so did the rest of your body. You noticed two strong arms wrapped around you, tracing your head slightly up to find Sam holding you closely with your head on top of his chest. His chest was moving steadily with his calm breathing. You sighed in relief.
Noticing that you are awake, he looks down at you and gives you a warm smile, “Hey baby, how are you feeling?"
"Better.” Your voice was still so weak and quiet.
“You should get some rest.” He takes one of his hands and brushes his fingers over loose strands of your hair to tuck them behind your ear.
Laying there with him for a moment, your thoughts wondered back to the nightmare that had occurred to you earlier. How could you forget, those men could still be out there. Just thinking about this made you uneasy and your breathing started to pick up. Sam noticed this, “What’s wrong (Y/N)?”
“The men…” You trailed off, but the fear in your voice was evident.
Sam moved his hand from stroking your hair down to cup you face. Holding you gently, he looks into your eyes without breaking contact, “You don’t have to worry about them anymore, they won’t hurt you ever again.” You decided not to ask what exactly happened to those men who attacked you, perhaps it was better not knowing.
Just staying here like this with Sam next to you made you feel a lot better. His eyes never leaving yours not even for a second, you felt your body relax finally. Stroking your cheek gently, Sam leans down and pressed his lips gently to your temple. You could feel his stubble brush against your skin which sent shivers down your body. “Get some rest baby."
Just hearing his voice like this made you a lot calmer. You finally felt like you could close your eyes and go to sleep. Burying your head into his chest you closed your eyes, Sam was gently running his fingers through your hair, you felt yourself falling asleep.
"It’s okay baby, you’re safe with me."
