Forever Young

Marie was an average girl. Until she wasn't.


17. How it Should Be

I heard a shriek.  Kianna’s shriek.  I knew it, because it was the same one she used when she was fangirling with me.  Claire threw her hand over my mouth to stop me from screaming.  Then I had an idea.  I whipped out my cell phone, and called the police.


“911. What is your emergency?”  The operator said.  I told her that my crazy ex was breaking into my flat, to try and capture me.  Then, I told her the same story I told the boys, a couple of days ago.




‘I suppose I have to tell you guys what that was about." I started, "When I was 16, Auntie set me up with Chris.  That was 2 years ago.  He was the boyfriend that I had never had before.  He was perfect.  Then, around 6 months after we started dating, he became abusive.  He never let me talk to anybody but him, so I couldn't tell anyone what was going on, but my brother.  Then, my brother stood up for me.  Chris shot him.  Then he kept me under lock and key."  By now, I had everyone in tears.  Including myself.  I continued, "Around month 8, I ran.  His abusing was getting worse and worse, so I ran.  I ran, and I kept running.  I ran wherever my feet would take me.  He was chasing after me.  I ran into a dead end. He came at me with a knife in his hand, and he gave me this."  I lifted the bottom of my shirt, to show the boys the scar running from the bottom of my rib, to my hip, then to my other hip, in an L shape.  "L for love" is what he told me.  "I'm lucky I didn't die."  I said, quietly.  "He was arrested for a year, but he got out on bail for good behavior.  And now, here he is.’

****End Flashback****


I heard sirens wailing outside.  I heard a crack, as the police broke open the front door.  Chris was wailing for mercy.  Inside the extra-safe room, I broke into tears.  Then, a burst of light entered the room.  Kianna had opened the door.  I crawled out to freedom, with Claire hot on my tail.  “Is everybody okay?”  Was the first thing out of my mouth.  “Minor scrapes and bruises, but other than that, yeah.  We are all fine.”  Liam said.  My scared tears were soon turned into tears of joy.  Finally, Chris was going to jail, and I had all of my friends with me.  And, that’s not to mention the fact that Niall Horan is my boyfriend.  We all ran into a group hug.  Everything is finally how it should be.
