Saved By A Stranger

Cassidy and her best friend Candy lived at an orphanage for over 14 years. They had lost all hope when suddenly a handsome stranger came to adopt them. They were desperate, but this stranger drew the confidence out of them. Cassidy finds true love, Candy finally understands, but happiness comes with a price. How much will they pay to be happy?


2. I can't stand it Cassidy

     I sat on my bed and looked at Candy, "You never told me that you were failing in Science." Candy looked down and put her dress away.  I frowned, "Candy, you can tell me anything.  I'm your sister."  She shook her head, "No, no. I can't tell you. Then you will hurt me like the other girls did." I ran over to hug her, "No, Candy, I love you. i won't let anyone hurt you. I can't do anything if you don't tell me what's going on."  She burst into tears, "I-I-I can't hold it anymore Cassidy. Alyssa and her friends have been hurting me."  She pulled up her sleeve to reveal cuts and bruises. I was about to cry, but I knew what I had to do. My voice was cracking, "Why did they do this to you?" She pulled her sleeve down, "Alyssa's boyfriend-" I looked at her, "You mean Josh?" She nodded, "He-he-he was drunk one night when-when-when I was hanging out with him. A-A-And he kissed me."  I was confused, all these situations were bubbled in my head and I couldn't think straight.  I asked, "Wait, what does all this have to do with you flunking?"  She cried, "Alyssa said that if I don't give her all the answers to the test, she will hurt me. She said that she needs to be with Josh."  I nodded. It all makes sense to me. Candy was an A+ student and Alyssa needed the answers. Josh is 2 years older than Alyssa, so she needs to skip a grade or two.  I rubbed her back, "You know what?  When someone decides to adopt us both, I will make sure we won't go to that crummy high school anymore so you wont be hurt."  She smiled, "That sounds very nice."  I smiled as she slowly fell asleep.  I turned off the light and went to my side of the room. I wonder how I'm going to get someone to adopt us. I didn't want Candy to suffer anymore.  I shut my eyes and went to sleep. I dreamt of very unusual things.  I saw Candy and she was crying, her bloodshot eyes piercing my heart.  I ran to her to hug her, but I couldn't. My arms just went through her.  She looked up to see me, "Cassidy."  I nodded, "Candy. What happened? Why can't I touch you? Candy? Tell me!" She cried even more. My heart was literally falling.  She looked up, "Cassidy, I couldn't stand Alyssa and her crew, so I went in the restroom when you fell asleep and I took the drugs I hid behind the sink and slowly cut myself. I bled to death peacefully inside the bathtub. Now, I'm in a better place." I roughly wiped the tears off my face, "Candy, no. We can get through this together." She looked down, "Cassidy, I can't take it anymore. I'm sorry."  I woke up screaming and running to the restroom to see if Candy was there. The bathtub was empty. I ran back upstairs to see Candy peacefully in bed. I smiled and went back to sleep.
