1. The Run
I don't know what I've done wrong. My family hate me. My friends hate me. I don't have anyone else left. Do I? I have to leave. Leave home and find a new way to live and fast. I'm being abused. At school. At home. My family are perverts. My step-dad, Carl, is always recording me get dressed, undressed, hop in the shower and as I sleep. I'm always slapped, kicked or anyway of being hurt at home. I'm not safe here. When my mum, well I wouldn't say mum I call her Karen, has gone on a business trip and there's no one else in the house, my step-dad does despicable things to me. He rapes me, cuts me and threatens me. I need to be freed. Be by myself for once. no one to hear or see me. They wouldn't care if I was gone. I'm just a toy.
I've got a plan to escape. I've been planing for months now. I just need the perfect time. Karen's going on a business trip this weekend. If god really cared about me he would help me.
"Nicole get in here right now!!" yells Carl, "And don't try any funny business or I will hurt you!!"
Karen left a few hours ago. I'm guessing he took a while to be ready for me. I've got my things ready. I've got money, food and clothes for a couple of days. As I walk into his and Karen's bedroom he has a knife and he's hard on. At least he's got his clothes on. Usually he goes and pulls me onto the bed and rips my clothes off.
"Stay here or I swear!!" He threatens
This is my chance. When he opens the door I'll make a run for it. Good thing my house isn't two story. I run for my room as quietly as possible. I grab my bag and jump out my window. I hear the front door shut and I know i need to run. I need to find a place to hide. I'll go to the place me and my old friend Liam went to. The magical waterfall. I run the way we always took. It's only a 30min walk. Running might be about 25mins. I can hear footsteps behind me. Oh no. It's Carl. I need to run somewhere fast. I look behind me. He doesn't know where I've gone. Good. I turn down an alley way that pretty much leads to the Waterfall. I stop for two seconds. I look behind and see Carl run past the alley way. Phew. That was close.
I start to walk the rest of the way to the Waterfall. When I get there the memories flood into my mind. I'm trying my hardest to keep the tears back. It's when I blink I see a tall figure silhouette behind the Waterfall exactly where I was going to go. Who could it possibly be? Maybe Carl knew where I was headed and bet me to it. I'm scared. The figure started to walk towards me when i started. What is going on? Who is this person in my sacred place?
