7. The Unexpected


I sat at home finishing up my homework when i heard a knock at the door. I went downstairs and opened the door. i was not prepared for what i saw.

There stood Maddison. She had mascara running down her face. Her dress was slightly ripped in some areas. There was a red hand print on her cheek and bruises up and down her arms and legs. She also had a black eye.

I quickly ushered her inside and have her an ice pack for her eye. I saw she was shivering so hot some blankets and wrapped then around her. She started crying so i hugged her.

When she calmed down i asked her "Maddison, what happened?"

She started sobbing " I-i-i " she stuttered. Then looked down.

i grabbed her shoulders and said "Maddison if you want me help you, you need to tell me what happened"

She opened her mouth but closed it again. I waited a little bit and she opened her mouth again. This time she spoke. "I-i

w-w-was -"


"I-i w-w-was r-r-a-aped" she stuttered and started sobbing again. I let her calm down before I said, "Tell me what happened."

"I-i ca-an't. I'm s-s-sorry i cant." she said

"It's okay. I understand. We should go tell your parents." i replied.


"No" she shouted shocking me. "We can't. At least not yet can we just stay here. I mean it's is spring break. Can i just stay here with you. We could have some girl time." she said giving me her puppy dog eyes. I couldn't resist.

"Fine, but let's tell your parents your staying for spring break. You can borrow my clothes for tonight and tomorrow we're going to get your clothes. okay."

"Thank you, thank you, thank you."

"Now let's go get you cleaned up."

I helped her clean up the make up off her face and then she took a shower and washed her hair. I gave her my blue pajamas. The top said 'princess' in yellow and shorts that has crowns on them. We then went downstairs and made popcorn. We watched titanic and Maddison fell asleep on my shoulder. A smile asked across her face.

I always wanted to be a big sister and this was pretty close. I was happy to see that i was able to make her forget the events of what happened earlier. At least for now.

*during the movie*

Alexis is so nice. I don't know what I would've done without her. She's like the big sister i always wish i had. I don't know where i would've gone if she hadn't been there because i sure as hell wasn't going home. They would question me to much. They wouldn't let me have time to heal. They would give me no space and pressure me. But with Alexis is a whole other story. She didn't really question me. She let me have time to heal. She gave me my own space and didn't pressure me.

I started getting tired halfway through the movie. Don't get me wrong it's not because it was boring. It's actually one of my favorite movies. It was just that i had a long day and was really tired. I slowly drifted off into a deep sleep while leaning on Alexis shoulder.

As soon as the movie was over i put everything away and went back to Maddison. I carefully picked her up and brought her to my bed and covered her. I was surprised at how light she was even though she is a small girl.

I went into the hallway closet and got the inflatable bed and extra sheets and covers. I set up next to my bed and went to sleep.

*middle of the night*

Someone was shaking me causing me to wake up. i knew it was still late because there was no light outside.

"I heard the front door open and close. I'm really scared. What if it's a killer?" Maddison said.

I was now wide awake. I shot up and grabbed the nearest hard thing i could find which was my baseball bat. I walked downstairs holding the bat and saw the kitchen light on. What kind of killer turns on the light. Aren't they supposed to be stealth. I slowly made my way into the kitchen and saw my dad stuffing his face with leftovers.

I decided to let him be because i was really tired and didn't feel like making any conversation. I went upstairs to find Maddison sound asleep. I guess she was tired too. I slowly made my way to the inflatable bed and went back to sleep.
