10. louis saved me
I watched as my dad took every punch, blow after blow and I couldn't help but think it was my fault. I mean if I had been quiet like he said this wouldn't be happening. I wanted to help, and get who ever that was off my dad, but I was too weak. Usually I could pull through the pain but this time it wasn't working. I tried my hardest to stand, but every time I tried to move I would get this unbearable, sharp pain in my stomach. I put my head in my hands as I started to cry harder, I'm a worthless piece of shit, what kind of person can't help their own father. After awhile I couldn't hear anything but the sound of my own cries, and I couldn't tell if it was because I was crying so hard I couldn't hear anything else, or if it was because the guy stopped beating my dad, but either way I was too scared to look so I just sunk deeper into my hands as I continued to cry. Suddenly I felt someone put a hand on my shoulder, I jumped pulling my hands away from my eyes and scooting as far back against the tree I could, letting out scared cries." Sh, sh it's ok love" I heard from next to me. I looked over to see the boy who was just beating my dad, except I knew who he was now, I knew that voice anywhere. " louis?" I sniffled looking his way. He nodded " yeah" he said quietly." Why did you do that?" I asked though a scared and shaky voice, it honestly terrified me that he could do that to my father. " he was hurting you ash, I couldn't just let him hit you like that" he raised his voice. I closed my eyes tight as I sunk back into the tree, it was scary when he yelled. " ash, please..... I'm sorry, I didn't mean to scare you" he touched my arm and I flinched. It went silent as he pulled his hand away slowly, I could tell I hurt him but I was scared, I couldn't help it. " I'm not gonna hurt you, ash" he said, even though it was nearly pitch black, I could feel him looking in my eyes, it honestly made me a little uncomfortable. "promise" I peeped looking back at his dark shadow, I saw him nod slowly, keeping his eyes fixed on me. " promise" he repeated me, and reached down grabbing one of my hands. I looked down at our hands, a beam of moon light settled over top of them, so you could see perfectly. His hand was so much bigger than mine but, it made me feel safer some how. " ash?" He said making me look back up towards him " will you come stay with me tonight?"
Damn the suspense, sorry you'll have to live with it ;) HEY!! You know what you should do? Tell me what you guys think should happen, i might agree with you and use your ideas, or not, it depends on if they're complete crap or not. But I probably won't hurt to try........ Probably. Okay, BYE!
