Haley was reaping the consequences of sticking around with her alcoholic boyfriend. She felt like she needed him. She had no one else. But one thing, one person saved her...It was destiny...


1. A storm in the city

Haley's P.O.V.:

Could today possibly get any worse? I ran through the busy new York streets, the rain drops pelted me, every drop making me more numb with cold and pain. My legs ached and screamed at me to colapse, and i nearly obeyed. I finally reached the apartment building and ran up the stairs, falling onto the musty old couch once I reached my room. I reached over and clicked the light switch, hoping the light could maybe warm the emptiness inside me aswell as out. To my disappointment but not surprise, the room remained dark and cold. Jake probably didn't pay the bills again... Jake is my boyfriend. What has happened to my life? I'm living with my alcoholic boyfriend who I don't even love anymore. There has to be something better out there. The only chains holding me here are my worries and insecurities.
All of a sudden I heard the door slam open. Jake stood there, wet and wild looking, as the thunder rolled outside the window. He looked like a mad man. I was frightened. The stale smell of cheep beer lingered on his breath, and hit me from across the room.
"um h-hey, Jake" I said, my voice trembling.
"hey babe, come here."
"uh no thanks i-I'm good.. Really tired.. I think I'll stay here."
"I don't think so!" he said, his voice raising and echoing around the room.
"I said COME HERE"
I was really scared now. He had come home drunk before and it was never good for me.
I slowly stood up, every nerve in my body shaking, and cautiously crossed the room.
He grabbed me by my long, wet, knotted hair and pulled me the rest of the distance. I was numb enough from the rain that I didn't feel the full sting, but had difficulty suppressing a scream.
"you will do as I say."
