H-E-L-P

I ran as he chased me down the street. I felt like screaming but the would be a waste of energy. I ran like I have been running my whole life. I heard his foot steps getting fainter and fainter. I didn't slow my pace at all as I kept running and took a sharp right turn. I look back which was a huge risk only to find him not behind me anymore. I slow my pace down to a fast jog but not quite a run. Only to have two large arms wrap around me and my mouth being covered.

1. Abuse

Alex's POV

I flinch as he strikes his hand across my cheek. It throws me to the ground as I hold my red cheek. He looks down at me as he takes a liquor bottle off the table and walks out the front door.

This is what I live to everyday. I don't have a phone. He keeps me in the house and never lets me walk a foot outside since the last time he did. He let me out in the backyard and I had found a part in the fence where it was broken I was hidden for 4 days until one of his buddies found me, beat me, and then brought me back here. Here to the abusement house. The "he" I have been mentioning is John. My dad's brother. When my parents died in a car crash I was sent here. Here to this horrible place.

As John slams the front door it brings me out of my thoughts. I run upstairs. Here is my chance. He never leaves the house. But he is so drunk he doesn't realize what a mistake he has made. I grab my back I prepared weeks ago incase this happened. I then look out my window which looks out the front yard. He is walking down the street extremely drunk. I then run downstairs and quietly go out the door. I go along the bushes incase he saw me. He may be drunk but that doesn't mean he cant run fast. John then keeps walking down the street and turns to the left. I then clip my backpack together so its harder for it to fall off. I take a deep breath and keep walking keeping a eye one where John turned.

A cat then runs out of the bushes and runs down the street.

"Don't turn left. Don't turn left." I mutter as the cat turns left. I hear a bottle crash. Immediately he starts running towards the house.

"Shit." I swear and hide myself in the tree. I then see him run past me running faster towards the house. I look up to see a dog in the window.

"Don't bark. Don't bark." I mutter. As I stay still. His eyes are still locked with mine. I look at John who has stopped in the middle of the street almost to the house.

I then do the unmentionable. I run. The dog starts barking like crazy.

"HEY STOP RIGHT THERE!" I hear John scream. I ran as he chased me down the street. I felt like screaming but the would be a waste of energy. I ran like I have been running my whole life. I heard his foot steps getting fainter and fainter. I didn't slow my pace at all as I kept running and took a sharp right turn. I look back which was a huge risk only to find him not behind me anymore. I slow my pace down to a fast jog but not quite a run. Only to have two large arms wrap around me and my mouth being covered.
