4. Running away

I dragged a small, black suitcase down the wooden stairs.


Each time the suitcase hit a new step, the sound went straight threw me.

I left my suitcase at the bottom of the stairs  and slithered silently into the kitchen. I found the jar where Nan kept the emergancy money and took the whole lot, right down to the coppers. If I was goona survive, "out there," I was gonna need everything I had.

I pulled the heavy suitcase out into the night, with me. I didn't know where I was going, i just had to get away  from here.

I walked for hours deeper and deeper into the night.  I knew where I was now, and I most certainly knew where I was going. As I approached the dark wood a shudder went down my spine. I wasn't sure about this, but where else was there to go.

"Pull yourself together," I whispered to myself. I walked past dozens of huge shadowy trees, jumping out of my skin at the slightest of noises.

My legs were aching  and I was begining to think I had past my spot, when I saw it. A huge oak tree, great for climbing,and way up in those branches was mine and my sisters tree house.

I had never tried dragging a suitcase up a tree. It certainly added some time to the journey, but I was determined, and after a long old climb, I reached the tree house.

I suddenly felt sick, i didn't think I could possibly go in. I gritted my teeth and stepped inside banging my head as I did so. I pulled a small towel out of my bag and wrapped it round me.

I knew the nightmares were coming, but tonight I was ready for them. This was a new begining.
