in your arms

lizzie looks just like any normal 16 year old but she isnt. her life is a living hell after her mom dies in a tragic accident , her dad becomes abusive and the only other family(her older brother) leaves. as lizzie faces life alone she often wonders why she lives? when she has nothing. one night she makes up her mind. but to do what will she end everything or find safety in the most unexpected way?


1. the night i run

 ~lizzies p.o.v~ 

   I hear the door click close. i hear the footsteps get closer. i see the shadow with a beer bottle in his hand. my dad is home from the the bar ad this isn't good he is the drunkest i have ever seen him and i'm scared. as the tears roll down my face he just looks at me and i just think 'how can he do this to his own daughter?'. the silence is broken when he screams "STOP CRYING" and then i feel the sharp pain as his hand comes in contact with my face. he tells me to follow and i know he is taking me to the basement to punish me. as i'm following behind i think why am i living? he yells "KEEP UP" i quicken my pace. 

   As he locks the door to the basement he tells me to sit while he gets the ropes. i frantically looked around for an escape of any kind i didn't care at this point and then i see it the open window the could lead me to freedom. and i climb through the open window my dad sees me. i know this because for some reason i looked back really quick. my dad(mike) is quick and puts knife in his hand and then follows. i run frantically through the streets of London and eventually mike gives up but not before he throws the knife which finds a place right under my rib cadge. its stuns me but i keep running i run until i cant run anymore and i collapse in an ally way behind someones flat. then it hits me and i see he blood and feel the pain. i start crying and it feels like the end, i lay back and close my eyes as i continue to cry.    

   not even a minute passes before i hear a door open, footsteps and someone saying "hello?".the Irish accent pulls me out of the blackness for a couple seconds and i curl up into a ball making my self as small as possible. my attempts fail and he finds me, to my surprise he doesnt  say anything just picks me up but i try to push away. i'm to weak and when i can hear him say "shhh" I  strangely feel safe as I slip into an uncommon blackness.
