1. Chapter 1
I walked. I started to run. I ran to the park, and into the trees. There, I found the cave. The cave wich I had found ling ago. I stoped running, inches from the entrance. I walked into the cave and I saw the light. I kept walked tell I reached the end. I pushed past the vines and there, was the most beautiful site I hade ever seen. There was a water fall that led to a small river into a pond. the pond had fish and frog in it. It was crystal water, thats how pure it looked. I sometimes dreamed that if you drank it all problems would disapear. The place was filled with sun, yet the only person I knew that knew about tgis place was me. In the very center there was a tree. It was an oak, huge and healthy. It had many branches. My thoughts flickerd to memories. I remember when I was five, I was playing hade and seek with my sister and I found this place. I didnt dare tell her because it was my secret. I gripped my backpack. In it was about half a meter of rope, a knife, and a book on how to tie differnt knots. I walked over to the tree in the very center of this magical place. I unzipped my backpack and took out its contents, shivering when I touched them. I grabbed the rope and book and flipped to page 107, a loop knot. I started tying, and soon had a very well done loop. I cut off the ecstra with the knife. I started cutting my arm. When I was done I took out soem bandaids from the hole in the tree I store my stuff in. The picture I had cut looked like the knot I had just tied. It did on purpose. I took the other end of the rope and tied it high of the ground to a branch, about ten feet in the air. I wasnt going to hang myself today, it had to wait. I put my knife and book into the tree hole and started home. I didnt want to leave. I felt safe here. Safe from everythig.
"WHAT DID I SAY ABOUT SINGING YOUNG LADY!" My dad yelled at me at the dinner table. "Not to or I would be punished." I looked down ready for my punishment. "Thats right. And what did you do?" I looked down at me shoes. "I sang." He slapped me. "NEVER SING IN THIS HOUSE OR ANYWERE AGAIN YOU GOT THAT BITCH!" I started to cry. "Yes" I tried to stop but I couldnt. "GO TO YOUR ROOM! NOW!" He punched me in the gut. I whimperd. My dad thretend another punch so I shut up and went to my room. "Why cant I live a normal life like other kids?" I mumbled to myself. All of a sudden my sister slamed my door open. "Because your a bitch and a whore! Thats probably why you were late coming home!" I looked down. "Your lucky, because Im about to make you a deal." I looked up. "If you do all my homework for a month I wont tell mom and dad, but if you dont," she smirked. "Say goodbye to being white." I gulped. "Ok." I managed to croak. "Good! I have a math project due in two days so get to work, NOW!" She threttend to punch me. I nodded and got to work. I hate my family.
