Starting Over

How would you feel if your "dad" killed your mom right in front of you and your sister? Would you run? Save your sister? Well, I did. My father was an alcholic, he would beat us. But, the day he found out I wasn't his and my mom had an affair, he crossed the line. He killed my mother. Tried to kill me, but I took my sister and ran. We ran as far as we possibly could. Hi, my name is Abigail, but they call me Abbey. I had a rough childhood. Now I'm 18 living with my 16 year old sister, Nina. My father- well her father anyway, is looking for us. We've been running for 2 years now, with no place left to go. How will we escape this mess? Who is my biological father? So many questions, so little answers. But then came these 5 boys. Never will I regret meeting them, they call themselves One Direction. Find out our story.


1. How It All Began

         I could hear my father slam the door, followed by loud footsteps. He was drunk again. I heard my liitle sister calling my name from downstairs, I rush down to see my dad holding a knife to my moms neck.

I ran over to my sister right away, hugging her, assuring her she will be safe.

"How dare you cheat on me!" he yelled, pushing the knife into my moms neck as the warm, red blood dripped down her neck, I couldn't help but scream and the next thing I knew my mom was laying on the ground lifeless and he was walking towards me.

I took Nina and I ran. He chased us down the street in the pouring rain. I turned back and saw he was no longer there. I faced Nina, and she was devastated. The fear in her eyes made me want to die inside. She was only 14. This isn't how it should be for her. I couldn't quite understand why my father did that. It just doesn't make any sense. Did he say my mom cheated? When? This is all so crazy! I just know I'm not going back there, EVER!

I have no where to go. I think I remember my aunt that I had met maybe twice? I don't know but she lives all the way in New York. Where am I? Texas. How am I supposed to get me and my sister to New York?

My phone started to ring, it was my dad. Do I pick up? Let it go? I was too late, Nina already snatched it from my hands and answered it.

"Put it on speaker." I told her.

"Nina sweetie, I'm sorry I don't expect you to understand. Your mother had an affair and lied. Abbey is not my daughter. I got a little carried away. Please come home... alone."

I was speechless. He was never my father.

"And what leave Abbey? She's been better to me then you ever have, and I will never forgive you! You killed mom! I'm staying with Abbey so don't expect me anytime soon!"

A smile spread across my face when I heard her say that, we may bicker and argue a lot but we will always be sisters, ALWAYS.

"Nina please, your mother is gone and once I get rid of Abbey we can be together. No lies. No secrets. Just family." Get rid of me? What does he mean get rid of me?

"Have you gone crazy? I will never forgive you for mom and if you kill Abbey, I will hate you for the rest of your life!" And with that she hung up. I pulled her in my arms and held her for a long while.

         We went to the train station and asked for tickets to NYC but the lady said the next ride wasn't until morning, so we camped out at the station.

When we woke up the train was leaving and we hopped on for a long journey. When we arrived I had no idea where the heck I was. They had a map but I didn't know where she lived. I went through my contacts and called my Aunt Jenna.

We got to her house and told her everything, and I mean EVERYTHING! Nina was asleep in the guest bed while I was takiling with Jenna.

"And you guys had to witness it all?"

I was crying, I couldn't help it. I was always an easy cryer.

"Yes, and I'm worried about Nina." I said through my constant tears as my aunt was trying to comfort me.

"I understand, but it's not long before he figures out where you are, Abbey, we need to worry about you." She was right. This was probably one of the first places he'd look.

"Look, Abbey, Nina will be safe. He isn't going to hurt her. He wants to hurt you. How about me, you, and Nina all move. Somewhere he won't find us, atleast not anytime soon." My aunt Jenna was so nice to us. She never approved of my dad. She's a strong person. She only shreaded a few tears.

"Like where?"

"I have some friends in London, England. So we will start there." England?!? Isn't that in like Europe??

"When do we leave?"

"Tomorrow, we will leave right in the morning but go get some rest for now, okay?"


I went to where Nina was sleeping peacefully, escaping the real world. I lay next to her, my body is aching. The bruises on my ribs make it hard to fall asleep. I feel myself drifting to sleep, my eyes getting heavy until I escape to my dreams with my sister.
