Once Upon a New York Night

Do you ever feel like you mean nothing? Like you don’t feel wanted by anyone? Like the world would be better off without you? I’m Carry and I am 17 years old and well, that’s how I have felt ever since my mom died and my dad started beating me every day. I was on the verge of ending it all. Leaving this world for good. But everything changed when I ran away to New York with my 2 best friends. I would have never thought I would feel like I was special to someone, like someone would truly like me for me. I never knew I would find love in the heart of the big apple.


3. RUN!


Janae’s P.O.V.

Poor Carry her life has been a living hell for years now and I have done nothing to help. I should have seen the signs, they all pointed to her being abused. She was telling us everything that had been going on in her life since he mother died and I couldn’t stop my blood from boiling with hatred for her father. How could he do this? Carry is sweet, funny, caring, nice, and beautiful. How could he do this to his own daughter? God if I get my hands on him I’m gonna beat the shit out of him. As Carry approached the end of her little biography I was on my feet pacing, trying to calm down before I said something I would regret. We were all in silence for a few moments before Mone spoke up.

“You have to tell someone.”  Mone didn’t look up as she said it but I could see the same tears in her eyes that I had in mine only hers were tears of sadness and worry and mine were tears of guilt, sadness, worry, but most of all anger. Carry was my best friend and she has had to live through this. I couldn’t believe it.

“I ca-“Carry began but I cut her off.

“No you have to no excuses, if you stay there your dad is gonna end up killing you.” As soon as I said it her face turned from sadness to hurt. I didn’t mean to be so harsh but when I get angry I get angry and my filter stops working.

“I can’t my dad will beat me to death before the authorities can get there.” She managed to choke out before she lowered her self to the ground and started sobbing. Mone moved to the pavement beside a broken Carry as she began to comfort her and speak in a soft, kind voice.

“You can’t stay there with him. We won’t let you.” Mone kept comforting Carry as she continued to cry into her shoulder. Poor Carry, we have to help her. I would do anything to help her.

“So what do I do?” Carry looked at me desperately hoping there was a way she would never have to return to her father as the tears began the flow freely down her cheeks.

They sat there in silence as I racked my brain for a plan to save my best friends life. Then I got it! I stopped pacing and looked directly into Carry’s bright blue eyes and spoke to simple words, “Run away.” The looks on their faces was pure shock, “I know it’s a long shot but my uncle has a tiny apartment near Times Square and I’m sure he won’t mind if we use it, considering the circumstances.” I saw as Carry’s face lit up and Mone had a huge smile plastered on their faces. I just hope my Uncle won’t mind.


Mone’s P.O.V.

This is why I loved Janae she always knew what to do. I hope my parents wont mind I mean I’m 18 I’m technically adult and so is Janae so Carry is the only one still considered a minor, since shes only 17, but that shouldn’t be a problem.

“What about money? I don’t exactly have any.” Carry spoke in a sad voice.

“There are plently of restaurants and small shops in New York I’m sure we could all find jobs within a mile of the apartment. I mean in New York small shop owners can use all the help they can get when I went there last year it was pure madness!” Janae exclaimed with a smile.

“Guys…” Carry spoke in a voice laced with fear.

“Yeah?” Me and Janae spoke in unison.

“Run.” Carry said as she stood to her feet and took off. Me and Janae stood there dumbfounded until we heard a voice behind us.

“So you guys are planning to run away with my daughter? I just want you to know there is no way in hell that is gonna happen.” Crap. I wish we would have ran I turned to run when I heard Janae open her mouth.

“It sure as hell is gonna happen. I’m not letting you lay another finger on our best friend you sick bastard.“  Janae said through gritted teeth and with that we took off only stopping long enough for me  to flick Carry’s dad off and we began to search for Carry. With the speed she was going she could be long gone by now. I hope she’s ok.


Carry’s P.O.V.

I didn’t stop running until I reached Mones house which was a good 25 minute walk from my house. When I reached her porch I sat down with my mind racing, How much did he hear? Is he following me? Where are Mone and Janae? Are they ok? Did he hurt them? Did he hear our whole plan? These questions running through my mind before my thoughts were interrupted by the sound of footsteps. I looked up frozen in fear praying to god it wasn’t my dad nut as the figures got closer I saw it was only Mone and Janae. I stood running to them and grabbing them into a huge bear hug.

“Oh my god what happened! Im so sorry I left you guys I was just so scared. Im sorry. I should have stayed with you guys. Are you ok? Did he hurt you?” I was talking fast scared of the answers they might give me.

“Calm down we are fine. It was quite funny actually” Mone said giggling.

“What did you do?” I asked slowly looking towards them.

“Well I might have cussed out your dad.” Janae said with a funny grin on her face trying to hold back her laughter just like I was.

“And umm I might have flicked him off as we ran away laughing.” Mone added. By now we were all laughing so hard we had to shush each other to keep from waking Mones parents.

“God I love you guys so much. How did I get so lucky as to have you guys here with me. Thank you so much!” I said between giggles. We finally calmed down and stood there staring at each other like idiots in complete silence.

“Guys its late we should probably go inside and get some sleep. We have a long day of packing and organizing.” Mone said as she turned to head for the door with us following close behind.

We reached Mone’s room and started to get ready for bed. Me and Janae made beds on the floor out of pillows and blankets. When we all finally lay down it is close to 2 am and I had never been more exhausted in my entire life. Before Mone turned out the lights I spoke up.

“Thanks again guys. I love you so so so so so sooooooo much. Good night!” I slurred the words because of my exhaustion causing them to giggle before they said their good nights. I fell asleep that night dreaming of the new life that would await me in NYC.


OK so I might be able update tonight again but I don't know and school starts tomorrow so I gotta get organized. Please tell your friends about my story and comment what you think.
