Heal Me

We'd run away from home, my little sister and I. We were helpless. Until he came along with his dark, bushy eyebrows and windswept hair. His name was Liam.


3. Oliver Twist

Liam took us to the hotel he was staying at, it was magnificent. The outside of it was clean brick in a soft brown colour that made you want to step inside, there were two small potted trees on either side of the grand entrance.  The doors were opened to us by a man wearing a splendid red suit and had a top hat on; it reminded me of a film that I’d watched when I was really little, ‘Oliver Twist’ or something like that. It was an old fashioned film about a boy who worked in a workhouse and then became free; I’d give anything to work where he did rather than go home to that monster.  The foyer inside was very fancy, everything was so grand here, I felt rather out of place in my scruffy clothes.

As we approached the front desk, the reception lady looked up and smiled warmly at Liam. Then she noticed me and Lydia and her smile faded instantly. “Security” she shouted and two big tough men in black suits came towards us briskly. “Escort this young lady out. I’m so sorry, Mr Payne, she must be some silly little fan” she said, gazing into Liam’s eyes as she said it. I flinched as a security guard reached out and grabbed my arm, wrapping it tightly around one of the bandages and trying to pull me away. I screamed, terrified they were going to take me back home.

“Stop” said Liam in a stern voice. “She’s with me.” Instantly, I was let go of and the guards left with an apologetic look, mixed with confusion. Liam explained that Lydia and I was to stay with him in his suite until other arrangements could be made. The receptionist smiled at me, but the smile didn’t quite reach her eyes, her eyes were cold and uninviting. She passed me a room key without speaking a single word to me. I nodded in thanks and then followed Liam to the elevator.

As we entered the lift I realised just how small it was and my breathing became shallower. I started breathing faster in an attempt to calm myself; I was beginning to feel dizzy. Liam pressed the button for our floor and then turned around to smile at me. That was when I fainted.
