Is This What Love Feels Like?

Riley was just a 14 year old trouble maker in her school, West Bridge High. She was never popular or even loved after the passing of her father. Her mother had her up for hours, abusing her until she had bruises. She couldn't take it anymore so she ran away. Along the way, she met up with an unexpected stranger who offers her amazing things. What will Riley do?


1. Run, Riley


"SHUT UP YOU LITTLE GOOD FOR NOTHING!!" My mom screams at me as she pushes me to the ground. "Would you like to repeat that!?" she yells again.

I drag myself up, grabbing onto the side table.

"Yes. Yes I would." I can see her dark eyes fill up with hate. "I SAID I WISH YOU WOULD DIE!!!" I scream in her face. She grabs me by the arm and drags me out into the front yard. It's 2AM so the neighbors aren't awake. I'm terrified about what shes going to do to me. She grabs a bucket of gasoline and starts her car engine. I stand there trying to decide if I should bolt. 

"Put it on. Now." She hands me a blindfold which was really only a rag.

"I SAID NOW!" she shout-whispers.

I put on the blindfold and tie it in a loose knot.

"Can you see anything?" she asks with force.

"No," I lie, my voice becoming shaky.

She picks me up and my feet leave the ground.

"WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH ME?!?!" I scream loudly.

"SHUT THE HELL UP," She replies angrily.

"HELP!!! HELP ME PLEASE!! SOMEONE!!" She elbows me in the gut which makes me bite my tongue.

"I'm putting an end to this. You won't have to be my daughter and you won't have to sit through being lectured about being a bitch child. It will be better for the both of us." Oh god. Is she going to... KILL ME?!!? Suddenly she drops me and I thump against a metal platform. I attempt to feel around but my hands had been tied together, but I recognized the smell. A car. In the trunk of a car. My MOM'S car. I try to let out a scream but I'm stopped by a thick piece of duct tape. The car starts to move and I squirm around trying to escape. Eventually I wriggle out of the knot around my wrists and take off the blindfold. I didn't dare taking off the tape because I was afraid I would scream and my mother would come back and murder me. I had to get out of here. I needed to. Now. I counted in my head backwards from 3 and opened the latch of the back of the car. I quickly jumped out and began to run in the opposite direction.

"HELP ME!!!! PLEASE!!! SOMEBODY HELP!!" I continued running and I looked back to see the car stopping slowly. After that I refused to look back, I spotted a large house about 60 feet away.

"Run, Riley!" I kept thinking to myself. I ran and ran until I couldn't run anymore. Once I reached the house I knocked on the door desperately. I gave horrifying screams that could be heard from a mile away. I pounded hesitantly on the door. I snatched at the door handle and surprisingly it was unlocked. I scurried inside and slammed the door, locking it. I looked around the entrance room, panting. Where was I? Who's house was this? But most importantly, what do I do now?

Questions wobbled around in my head and I began to feel faint. I slumped down onto the wooden floor and rested my head on my knees. With a jolt, I quickly peered up to notice a sleeping boy spread out on the couch. He had gorgeous blonde hair and an amazing skin tone. He just looked so perfect all bundled up. Now I had several problems. My own mother trying to kill me and I have to hide from this boy in his own house but without falling in love with him. I think it's too late for that.
