What's going on?

Millie is keeping a secret about being bullied by Sarah, who is holding a very scary secret of her own.


4. Puzzled And Panicking

When Sarah said my name, I flinched. What was she going to do now? Surely she wouldn't hurt me if a) my Mum and the ambulance are here and b) I'm already wired up and broken.

"What do you want?" I asked, getting scared. This was the worst thing she had ever done to me.

"Millie, I'm so sorry. I never meant to hurt you so badly. Well, I did but not like this." Sarah replied. Tears were running down her cheeks.

"Why would you want to hurt me? What did I ever do to you to make you hate me so much? Why would you do this to me? Why?"

Sarah looked at me. She looked so scared and upset.

"I can't tell you. I'm sorry, Millie, I really am."

"Sorry? You're SORRY? 'SORRY' doesn't make me better again, does it? 'SORRY' doesn't make me less scared of you. In fact, it makes me more scared of you! Get away from me! Get away! GET AWAY!" I screamed.

"Millie, please. Let me explain! OK! I will tell you everything! You mustn't tell anyone, though. Promise? Promise?"

"Yeah whatever. I promise."

And she told me her story. About her parents and her little sister. About how she needed to hurt someone to make her feel better and to get her anger out. I felt sorry for her.

"So, there you go. There is my story. I really am sorry, Millie. Am I forgiven?"

I thought about it. Why should I forgive her? After all the horrible things she has done to me. Although, I do know now why she was being horrible to me. At least she had a reason. She could have at least held herself back and not hurt me. Hmmmmm.

"Why should I forgive you? After everything you've done to me? I've told you, GET AWAY FROM ME!"

Sarah looked so shocked to see me scream at her. Normally, it's her screaming at me to get up or to tell me to stop running away. 

Mum must had heard me screaming because she came running into the ambulance van, red in the face.

"What is it Millie? What ever is the matter?" She looked from me to Sarah and then back to me again.

"Who is this?" Mum looked Sarah up and down and then looked at me again, puzzled.

Before I could come up with an excuse, Mum snapped.

"This is who did this to you, isn't it?"

Sarah looked at me and slightly shook her head. Mum must have realized that the reason that I hadn't responded was because it was Sarah who had beaten me up.

"You!" Mum pointed at Sarah, the look of death on her face. "GET AWAY FROM MY DAUGHTER!"

Mum lunged at Sarah but she swerved out the way. Mum smacked her head on the metal safety bar and fell to the ground.

"Mum!?!?" I tried to get to her but I couldn't move because I was still strapped into my stretcher. Sarah was staring at my Mum, shocked.

"Mum? Are you OK? Talk to me, Mum! Mum? Mum!" 

Tears were once again rolling down my cheek.

Suddenly, like my Mum, I snapped.

"Are you trying to ruin my life forever? First, you beat me up for 4 years and now you've killed my Mum! I won't ask you again, Sarah.-"

"I know. I'll go.  Millie.....I'm-"

"Don't tell me your sorry. I don't want to hear it! Just get away from me or I'll call the police!"

Sarah was also crying now.

"OK." I'm going. Bye Millie. I promise that I'll never pick on you again. Oh, what have I done?"

I was so angry. "I don't see why you're crying, lovie. It's ME who's got an unconscious Mother and ME who's going to hospital."

Sarah walked out of the door and closed it behind her.
