My Submission:

She whipped her head round, baring her teeth as she tried to flee, but he was relentless. He had her snagged by the neck and wasn’t about to let go, no matter what she did. 

He had been stalking her for weeks, strategically planning his moves. He’d had years of practise and read numerous books to prepare him for this very moment. Although she gave a stellar performance trying to breach his grip, it was all for naught.

He wrapped a rope around the teenager’s neck and dragged her to his van as she kicked and screamed the entire way.

The first thing he did when he got her home was wash the dirt off her, bringing out her true color. She was even more beautiful than he suspected. He dressed her in a warm sweater and layed out a pile of blankets for her to sleep on.   

When he acted as plaintiff against her abuser, it was the first sunny day she’d seen in a while. And when he officially adopted her, the animal who had been neglected her entire life finally had a fur-daddy who fed her well, took her to dog parks, gave her the belly scratches she so deserved for being such a good girl, and doted on the sweet terrier mix with infinite snuggles and love for the rest of her days.
