2. The call

It's ringing. I've never used the number. When she left, I didn't have a cell phone and I couldn't ask my dad because he didn't know I had the number and he wouldn't have let me call her anyways. I mean it's been three years, she probably has a new number by now. I was about to hang up when somebody answered.

~Phone Call~

Her: Hello?

Me: Hello. Is this Amanda?

Her: Yes. Who is this?

Me: Mom, it's me, Alison

Mom: Alison? Is it really you?

Me: Yes, Mom. It is. I'm sorry I never called before. I didn't have a cell phone when you left and I couldn't ask Dad. I hid the number in case I ever needed it and I do.

Mom: I'm so glad you called. I didn't think I would ever hear from you again. I'm so sorry I left you. I wanted you to come with me, but I understand why you didn't. I should have stayed and tried to work it out for you, but I was being selfish. I'm so sorry. But, you said you needed the number now, why is that? Is everything okay?

Me: Actually, no. Everything's not okay. He hits me.

Mom: What? Who hits you, your father?

Me: Yes, it started only a few days after you left. (starting to cry)

Mom: (starts to cry also) I can't believe this. I never should have left you. This is all my fault.

Me: No, it's not. You didn't know.

Mom: I should have known though. I should have know that if I left, then he would start hitting you because I wasn't there for him to hit anymore.

Me: Dad used to hit you?

Mom: Yes, it's one of the main reasons I left. But, I should have stayed, or taken you with me.

Me: No, you did the right thing by leaving if you were being abused, and you tried to take me, I wouldn't go.  And every day, I wish I had gone with you.

Mom: Oh, baby girl, I'm so sorry. Are you still living in the same house?

Me: Yes, why?

Mom: Pack a bag and wait, I'll call you in about 20 minutes when I'm there.

Me: But what if he hurts you?

Mom: Then he won't be hurting you. But I don't think that will happen, not if my plan goes right.

Me: Okay, I'll be waiting for the call. I love you, Mommy. Forever and always. I love you.

Mom: I love you too. Forever and always. I love you too.

~End of Call~

I go to my closet and grab a bag. I put my laptop in it and my laptop and phone chargers. I pack all of the things that are important to me and then as many of my clothes as I can fit. I touch my neck to make sure the locket Ari, my best friend, gave me is still there. It is. My phone rings right as I finish zipping the bag. Perfect timing. I take it out of my pocket and answer it.

~Phone Call~

Me: Hello?

Mom: Hey, is your bag packed?

Me: Yes.

Mom: Okay, go look out your window.

Me: Okay, I am.

Mom: Look at the neighbor's house. Do you see the white Toyota grand prix?

Me: Yes.

Mom: Okay, that's me. Do you remember my friend, Lindsey?

Me: Yes.

Mom: She's going to knock on the front door and pretend to be selling something. When your dad answers the door, sneak out the back door and come get in the car, okay?

Me: Okay, but won't Dad recognize Lindsey?

Mom: No, she looks different. Her hair I is a different color and she's wearing a hat and scarf that will make it hard to see her face.

Me: Okay. See you in a second.

Mom: Okay. I love you. Forever and always. I love you.

Me: I love you too, Mommy. Forever and always. I love you too.

~End of phone call~

I put my phone in my pocket, grab my backpack and my bag, and go unlock my bedroom door. I slowly open it just enough so I can see downstairs and I wait for Lindsey to come to the door and for my dad to answer it. I know he doesn't like door to door sales people and he tries to get rid of them as quickly as possible, so I'll have to be fast. But, I'll also have to be quiet. Just then, I hear the doorbell ring and I watch my dad walk to it. As soon as he opens the door, I slowly slip out of my room and tiptoe down the stairs and into the kitchen where the back door is. I slowly open the door, silently begging it not to creak. I get open enough to slip out of it and I very carefully close it. Once I'm out and the door is closed. I hurry to the fence and jump over it into the front yard, I look at the neighbor's house and see the white car parked exactly where it was when I looked out the window. I run to it and get in the back seat, because I know Lindsey will probably be getting in the front seat when she comes back. As soon as I get in the car, I look at my mom and a huge smile appears on her face. I forgot how beautiful she was. Gosh, I've missed her so much. I can tell she's relieved that I made it to the car without him catching me. "Hi," I say. "Hi, sweetheart," she says grinning. I lean into the front seat enough so that I can hug her, and give her the biggest hug in the world. "Thank you so much for coming to get me. I know I'll be eighteen in a month so I could've just stuck it out for another month, but I just couldn't take it anymore." "No problem, sweetheart. I'm so glad you called. I don't want you in that house with him for another second, let alone another month." "I'm just scared that when he sees I'm gone, he'll come find me," I say. "He won't be able to do that," she says. "How do you know?" I ask. "Because the police are on their way here now to take him away," she replies. "Are you serious?" I ask, relieved. "Yes. There is no way I could let him get away with hurting my baby." she says. Just then, I hear sirens and I see cop cars round the corner onto my street. They pull up at my house and my mom and I step out of the car. The cops go to the door and Lindsey walks away from the door and over to us. My dad looks at all of us and Lindsey takes the hat and scarf off. One of the cops handcuffs my dad and says, "You are under arrest for domestic violence against your daughter, Alison Green and your ex-wife, Amanda Hill. You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law." "I don't know what you're talking about. I have never abused either of those stupid whores! They are dirty liars!" my dad yells. The cop escorts him into one of the  cop cars and says, "Save it for the judge and don't dare call them whores ever again." As he is shoved into the cop car, my dad looks and my mom and I and yells, "You will pay for this you fat, ugly, sluts!" and then the door to the cop car is shut. A different cop comes over to us and says he needs to ask my mom and I each a few questions. We tell him everything and  then he says my mom now has full custody of me until I turn eighteen. Then, we thank him and all the cops leave. I look at my mom and she wraps me into a hug. We both start to cry. "I've missed you so much," I say. "I've missed you too, baby girl." My mom says. All three of us get into the car and my mom drives me to my new home. One we start driving, I pull out my phone and call my best friend, Ari, to tell her everything that just happened.
