Stella and Marie went downstairs after being in their rooms for three hours crying. Marie peaked into the kitchen to see if their dad was home. After not seeing him anywhere the girls snuck into the kitchen to get something to eat. Their dad didn't let them eat. He said that food is too good for them to have and if he ever saw them eating or found out they ate that he would kill them both. Marie and Stella grabbed an apple and starting eating. They were just finishing up when they heard footsteps. Stella and Marie looked at each other then the apple in their hands.
"It's time." Stella said.
Marie just nervously nodded. They threw their apples out and grabbed a blanket and a stick. Marie went to the fridge and came out with 6 apples, 4 water bottles, and a couple energy bars. They tied the blanket up and ran upstairs to grab their backpacks. Stella convinced Marie into packing their stuff after what happened with dad this morning so they could run away when needed. They had a wooden ladder hidden in their closest for the escape. Marie took it out and handed it to Stella. Stella put it on the window sill and climbed down the ladder with Marie right behind her.
"STELLA! MARIE! WHERE DID ALL THE APPLES GO? I SWEAR IF YOU ATE THEM YOU WILL BE SO DEAD. GET DOWN HERE NOW!" their dad screamed.
I ran pulling Marie along. It wouldn't be long until dad noticed we were gone. And I was right.
"STELLA AND MARIE! GET BACK HERE NOW! YOU HAVE ONE CHANCE." dad said.
We ran faster.
"You leave me no choice than to do this girls." he said pulling a gun out and pointing it at Marie.
Before I could do anything dad had shot her. Blood was gushing from her leg. I wasn't going to leave her like this though.
"Stella. Go. On. Without. Me.." Marie said weakly.
"Never." I replied, "here take my back pack and I'll carry you."
She nodded and took my backpack not arguing because she knows I'm strong. I picked her up and starting running, checking back every so often.
****5 hours later****
I have been running for a long time now and it's dark. Marie passed out 3 hours ago because of all the blood loss. I decided that it's time for me to get some sleep. In the morning I can worry about shelter and the hospital. I found an open barn and layed Marie down carefully and layed down next to her. I hope that dad doesn't find us. And I hope the person who owns this barn doesn't care we're here.
I finally got my thoughts to shut up and closed my eyes, falling asleep as soon as they were closed......
