Sara was nervous. She had walked this way to the bus stop more times than she could remember, but now she wished she had driven and paid the outrageous parking fees the downtown garages charged. She picked up the pace of her walk and the woman behind her seemed to do the same. Sara had seen the woman a several of the stores she went to. She was sure that it was the same woman because of the dark blue raincoat, plain white headscarf she wore tied under her chin and the dark sunglasses. Okay, it was 1958 and a lot of women wore headscarves and sunglasses. Sara wore them on certain occasions herself. Still, this woman seemed to be following her. It could all be innocent, of course.
Sara was relieved to see a car parked on her side of this deserted street with a woman bent over doing something in the backseat of the car. She was a tall woman wearing a raincoat, a floral silk headscarf and sunglasses. As Sara approached the car, the woman straighten up and looked at her. The woman behind her got closer. Suddenly, the woman in front was blocking her way forward. Sara realized that her ways right and left were blocked by a fence and the car. Before she could react, the woman behind her stuck something in her back and put a cotton gloved hand over her mouth.
"No screams...I have a gun. get in the car," the woman behind her hissed.
Half pushed into the backseat, Sara went to the other side of the car and grabbed the door handle. She moved it, but it didn't open the door. The woman, who was behind her, slid onto the seat next to her. The revolver was displayed so it left no doubt that it was real. The other woman got in the driver's seat. Sara clawed at the window and started to yell 'help.'
"Shut the fuck up or I will hit you hard!" the driver said in a distinctly male voice. Sara realized that the driver was only dressed as a woman. Fear hit her. What did these people want? The man put the car in gear and went down to the next street turned right and then turned into an empty alley. The woman gave the man the gun, pulled Sara's hands behind her back and wrapped cord around them. She bend over and crossed Sara's legs and used another cord to secure them. The woman pulled Sara upright, the man handed her two handkerchiefs. The woman forcibly stuffed one completely in the frightened woman's mouth and tied the second one between her lips at the back of head. The man gave the woman the headscarf he had been wearing. She put it over Sara's head and knotted it tightly under her chin. The gag that was very obvious was suddenly hidden. The woman forced dark glasses over Sara's eyes and the world suddenly went black for Sara. She heard the man put the car in gear.
"Sara dear, you will be our guest for a few days until your daddy pays for your release. Not to worry, we will do our best to see that you aren't bored," the woman whispered in Sara's ear as her hand went under Sara's skirt.
Kidnappings are another obvious way to include bondage in a story. There are different reasons for a kidnapping. Kidnapping for ransom is perhaps the most frequently type of kidnapping. Kidnapping to force someone to do something for you is another type of kidnapping. For instance, if the villain grabs the daughter of a bank officer, the kidnapped girl could be used to force the bank official to assist in a robbery. One of the kidnapping scenarios I like is the one that happens by accident. The kidnapper needs a hostage and the heroine happens to be in the right place at the wrong time. The final type I can think of (there may be others) is a political kidnapping, which is similar to the second type, but the desire is for a political ransom...releasing political prisoners, etc.
There are four obvious phases to a kidnapping...the grab or snatch, the transport, the wait for the ransom, and the release/rescue/escape/bad ending. In the grab stage, the kidnappers attempt to gain control of the heroine. This could be in almost any location including her home, work location or most anywhere else, including a very public location. The snatch would be planned where the heroine would be most vulnerable, where there is less security and perhaps where she feels safe. The key to the snatch phase is to gain control of her without others realizing or being able to stop what is happening. This might include subduing others that are with her, using a ruse to get her alone or taking advantage of something she does often (like in the story above) or a combination of these.
The grab is the most dangerous part of the kidnapping for the kidnappers and the heroine. The kidnapping must be well-planned and perhaps there must be some luck involved for it to be successful. There are, of course, several ways of subduing the heroine. A favorite is chloroforming her. If the plan is to render her unconscious, then the kidnapper(s) needs a plan to transport her to the escape vehicle. Carrying a limp woman any distance could be problematical. If the plan is to tie and/or gag her, the kidnapper(s) then must deal with a struggling woman. If there is a sufficient number of kidnappers, it would be possible to just grab and carry the heroine with a hand clamped over her mouth. Another possibility is to threaten her physically so she will go with you without fighting. However, this also has great risk if she comes to believe that there is more danger in being kidnapped than fighting. Of course, the kidnapper(s) would have decided what they were going to do prior to the kidnapping. Still, they might have to adapt if something unexpected occurs during the grab. In fetish bondage, the snatch part of the kidnapping is the most exciting with either a chloroforming, hand gag, tie up or some combination of these.
At some point it is likely that it would be to the kidnapper(s) advantage to bind and gag (and perhaps blindfold) the heroine to help control her and to minimize the possibility that she will attract attention to her situation. By the transport stage, it is likely that tying up the heroine would become a necessity in many cases. This is true even if she is held in a car trunk or other secure location in a vehicle. I prefer the bound in plain sight transport in the backseat of the car. Help is so very close, but no one understands the heroine's dire situation. Of course, at least one of my villains, almost always a woman, would be playing with and fondling her captive on the way to the hideout.
Once the kidnapper's hideout is reached successfully, the heroine might be kept bound and gagged (and perhaps blindfolded) for her stay. If this is the plan, the length of the kidnapping should be relatively short (hours or days). Taking care of a helpless woman for a prolonged period might be problematic (feeding, toilet, etc.), not to mention time consuming and it would take a toll on the heroine. [None of this is ever an issue in fetish bondage kidnappings or on TV fore that matter...but maybe it should be?] Another option is the isolated locked room where strict bondage isn't required to keep her secure, but that doesn't have the romance of fetish bondage, although she could be bound and gagged when people, who don't know about the kidnapping, visit the kidnappers.
It is during this period of captivity that kidnapper-heroine interaction would occur. She might fall for her kidnapper or the kidnapper might fall for her. There could be consensual or non-consensual sex involved. There could be an escape attempt. A favorite subplot is when a female kidnapper feels sorry for the heroine and helps her escape. The heroine leaves the woman kidnapper bound and gagged so she won't get in trouble. Of course, this rarely if ever works and certainly not in fetish bondage, where both women would spend time squirming next to each other.
In real life bad things can happen to kidnap victims...not usually in fetish bondage stories. It is another opportunity for the heroine to be bound and gagged during the exchange (money for heroine) or to be left squirming somewhere. Perhaps she might escape or be rescued. If rescued, the hero gets to untie her.
I like kidnap scenarios in fetish bondage because there are opportunities for different tie ups, gagging and regagging the heroine and of course, fondling and other force intimacy that is possible. [I always like the heroines to survive and get revenge on their kidnappers, by the way.]
Sara looked at her sister, Beth. Beth had been forced by the kidnappers to bring her ransom to a secluded spot after driving around for half a day. Beth had delivered the the money, but instead of releasing Sara, Beth had been grabbed as a precaution. Now they both sat in a busy city parking lot in the backseat of a stolen car. Their hands were bound with cord behinds their backs. There was more cord around their exposed breasts and their ankles were tied and secured to the metal rod that ran under their car seat. The woman kidnapper had also tied a rope connecting their hands and running tightly through their crotch to the rope about their bodies after she had finished playing with them. Any movement caused stimulation to their already sensitive areas. No one could see any of this because of the long raincoats covering their bodies and buttoned up in front, with their bound hands inside the coat. The only thing out of place were the panties that were hanging above the ropes that were wrapped around their ankles and that was almost impossible to see from outside the car. Their mouths were stuffed with a handkerchief and another was tied tightly in their mouths. No one saw this either because of the brightly colored silk headscarves tied over their heads hiding their gags. The way the car was parked onlookers could only see the back of their heads. They knew that they would be rescued, but when? The kidnappers were long gone.
[For the record, I don't wish this experience on anyone in real life!]
