The Unwanted And The Lost

Willow is abused, and unwanted. Bullied, broken, lost, and more. So one day, she gets sold to a man with her dog Midnight, who's black as the night. But something isn't right, its just worse for her. Way worse. She has to escape this madness. She tries many times to escape to the woods, but will she make it and see a familiar face?
Or fail again?


5. Midnight


           When I returned home, I saw a small box on the floor and heard a faint bark. I walked towards it and looked inside to find a pitch black dog wrapped up in a blanket. It looked really little, probably about 6 weeks. I stared down at it and bent down, gently picking it up. I held it close to me.

"Where did you come from little boy?" I said, smiling down at it.

Appearing out of nowhere, my dad slowly walked in.

"I thought you needed something to... keep you company while I'm gone at work or something. His name is Midnight. Or, whatever you want to name him."

I stared at my dad for a moment, and he smiled at me. What? Why wasn't he drunk? Furious? Hitting me? What is this? I smiled down at the dog in my arms.

"Thanks," I said softly.

"The only thing is, you have to care for him yourself. I got you a cage, bed, and a month worth of dog food. But he needs a collar, leash, and toys, which you'll have to get yourself. So you may need a part-time job."

"I can start baby-sitting? Or being an assistant at the hospital?"

He nodded and smiled and gave me a thumbs up, and walked away. I smiled and carried Midnight upstairs to my room. I saw that everything was set up near my bed. I set Midnight down and he ran around, jumping. I called Colton.

"Hello?" he answered.

"Hey, you'll never believe what my dad did..." I said, smiling.


"No, good. Come over and I'll show you," I said, petting him.

He said okay and hung up. He arrived shortly after.

"Close your eyes," I said, leading him into my room.

Midnight jumped onto him as he sat on my bed. He smiled. We hung out at my house before going to the pet store, picking up everything my dad said to get for the puppy.
