What happens to a girl when her childhood is torn apart? Her parents divorced, nobody to trust, no one to talk to, and constant pain. Then she met him. Is she saved or is it too good to be true?


4. Terrified

   Marie's pov.

It was a few months after the thing that happened with Lance I was at home. I was hungry, alone, and cold. 

   My mom told me to go to bed early so she walked me into the room and tucked me in. i fell asleep and hours later at about 3 a.m. and there was pounding on the door. My mom opened the door, they got her, the cops. 

   My moms friend Linda was shaking me, trying to wake me up. I woke up. she told me to pack clothes and what i deeded for school. i did. she put me in her car and told me that the cops came to get my mom i saw all of the car tracks in the dirt of our driveway. She took me to her house. 

   The next morning she woke me up to go to school, I got ready, she took me to school, then she told me that she would pick me up after school. I played tag with my best friend Amber. 

   Amber was my only friend at that school. She was the only one that would talk to me. I guess I was just too weird for the other kids. I guess I never tried to make friends either. I never had friends come to my house because Amber was my only friend and her parents would never let her. I never asked either because I guess i was just too embarrassed of my mom. 

   The day dragged on, I couldn't focus on the teacher so I just laid my head on the desk. After school i stood outside and waited for Linda to pick me up from school. One by one all of the kids and teachers went home. I waited for hours with a secretary, we were the only ones at the school. She asked me of there was anyone els that I could call. i had only memorized two phone numbers and that was my moms and my aunt and uncle's.

   They were always there when i needed a place to go. They were actually my great aunt and uncle. My dads aunt and uncle. I always went there when i was younger with my cousins and my brother on my dads side of the family. 

   I picked up the phone and dialed the number and I waited for the answer. After a couple of seconds my aunt Trina answered. I told her that i was at school still and no one would come get me. She told me to wait for her outside. I waited and she came.

   My aunt Trina took me to her house. she knew what happened with my mom the night before. She explained to me that that's where I would live for a while. They set up a bed in the office and that was my room for 3 years. 

   I went to another new school. I didn't talk to Amber anymore. She probably wondered where I was. She'll probably forget about me soon anyways.
