6. A safe place

Nick lead me out the school gates and in to the park that was over the rode. The park I got chased into. We walked over the wet grass over to the river I remember going on walks with my dad before he died and I have not bean her since. We walked well half ran down the little dirt path the went along the river then he stopped at an old willow tree and started to climb the old ruff bark and then when he got to a senten hight I could not see him he was hidden by the amount of hanging foliage.

"Come on" I herd him call down. I got hold of a low branch and started claiming I got about half way up the tree when Nicks hand pulled me up and sits me on a branch even though it was just an old willow tree when you where up in the branches where no one else could see it was wonderful place. Nick sat next to me on the branch with a grave look in his eye

"Fay you need to tell me everything right from the start"

"Why should I" I said confused he looked me in the eye

"because I care"

"You should not care about some one like me "

"why not"

"Nick I suffer from depression I don't know when my next cut will come or from who. I might give myself the next cut" he said nothing

"I'm not worth it Nick you shouldn't love me" I said knotting my fingers together

"Your right I shouldn't... But I still do. I'm not sure why but I do. I think it's that I feel like I should be here for you. It's odd because I only met you yesterday but I feel like I can tell you anything. I feel like I was meant to be here for you"

"Your mad you know that" I said unknotting my fingers. He smiled

"Probably but your no better than I am" he said and we both started laughing

"We're perfect for each other" I said through my giggles. It felt wired to be smiling I had not smiled in so long. I looked up at Nick was smiling too

"I haven't seen you smile before" he said brushing the hair that covered my black eye and stitches

"You are beautiful you know" with that I was frozen I could not move I could not keep from looking in to his eyes. I was worried I might fall out the tree. My fingers grabbed the branch so hard it was painful. Through all this I saw that Nick had the most beautiful sea green eyes sort of a grey green. He placed his hand on the scared side of my face his thumb ran over my stitches. I closed my eyes knowing what would happen and with in five seconds Nicks lips lightly touched mine and a shudder ran down my spine and I turned my head.

"Sorry" he whispered

"It's not you" I said resting my head on his shoulder. We where quiet for a moment and for the first time since I can remember I felt safe and content.

"So are you going to tell me how your life wound up like this" Nick asked putting his arm around me

. "When I was ten my farther died in a car crash and my mother went in to deep depression she stayed in her room and would only talk to me but I think I reminded her of dad too much so I stayed away only going up if I needed money for food or if she had bills to pay. From the age of Ten I was looking after myself I walked my self to school I cooked my own dinner but I never gave up hope that my mum would come back.

"When the people at school found out most people where supportive for me but there where a group of people that thought I was lying and attention seeking and they turned a lot of people against me then a year later I went in to secondary school and my mum was still in depression but what was worse was that some of the kids that bullied me came with me to my new school and started spreading rumors about me and even more people turned on me and the people that where my friends where too scared to stick up for me life was like that for about two years but I did not complain because I did not want my mum worrying about me.

"On the third year i met a boy called Micky I thought he loved me but in the end he just gave the bullies even more reason to make my life hell and it turns out that he was with them so after that I trusted no one. Things just went out of control then and got worse on the forth year I stated cutting myself and on the forth year my mother came out of depression and saw what was happening she blamed her self and still does. She got me to do counselling but doing that, talking about why I was cutting sent me into depression and from then on the bullying got worse and so did my depression... That's it that why I'm like this. That's why I hate my life."

I looked at Nick and he was looking at me intently and I felt a tear roll down my cheek. He wiped at away and sighed

" I'm sorry" he said shifting so he had his back against the trunk of the tree. I felt my eyes drooping with tiredness and I felt my self falling asleep

"You better not be fall sleep are you" said Nick snapping me back in to reality "dont coz I'm not the one that's going to be taking you to the hospital when you fall out" I just smiled but he looked at me unserten

"Come here" he said. I looked at him for a second and then edged my way to him and rested my head on his chest and he wraped his arms around me. Slowly I started drifting to sleep. I woke up screaming because i hade a bad dream but suddenly there was a hand over my mouth

"Shhh Fay you have to be quiet" said nick. I took my a minuet to find out where I was. There was a noise under use and I could see that its was a group of teenage kids by the river they where the kids that cut me yesterday. I could not here what they where saying and after a long minuet the walked off. We both sighed in relief

"That was too close" Nick whispers
