4. Help me!

Mara's P.O.V :


I was tired of seeing darkness. My eyes fluttered open only to be met with piercing green ones. My parents are here, at the hospital, after I finally escaped them and was freed yet they have to capture me again. I had a plan.

"Can we go home?" I asked them. "Sure, just go get changed" my mom replied with a fake smile. I went into the bathroom to change into skinny jeans and a plain long sleeved shirt. I then put on a blue sweatshirt. I grabbed my converse and tied the laces. When I was finished I walked straight to the front door in my room that was wide open.

"BYE!" I yelled to them and I ran out of my room and straight out of the hospital. Just my luck! It's raining! But that didn't stop me. I ran and ran and ran. I knew I was lost but I still had to keep on going and that's exactly what I did.

Then I tripped myself and I fell down. I got up and kept on running even though my knees were burning and stinging like crazy. I was crying hardcore but I knew if I stopped my parents would find me.

I was becoming weaker and weaker, due to the blood loss. I was in so much pain, yet the motivation in me was remarkable. I needed help but no one is here for me. I started slowing down because of the pounding in my head. I felt dizzy and tired. My sight was getting fuzzy, but I continued to cry and walk at the same time. I was walking what I thought was forward, but I bumped into something. I wasn't completely sure if it was a someone or something considering it was 11:36 p.m. I tried getting up but I didn't have the strength. My world felt like it was closing, my life felt like it was ending. But I always said to myself I'd rather be dead than stuck with the beasts I call my parents. I couldn't do it anymore, I was finished. 'Goodbye world' I mentally said my goodbyes and then shut my eyes for what I thought would be the last time.

Liam's P.O.V :

"Guys, I need a breath of fresh air. I'll be back." I told the boys. They were in the middle of watching a horror movie and I don't particularly like them.

I walked outside and was standing there when I felt something bump into me. I turned around to see what I thought was a little girl, laying on the ground. The lighting was terrible so I couldn't really see what she looked like. I saw enough of her though to notice she was drenched with water and she was also crying. She was struggling to get up but I was to shocked to help her. Then I heard her whisper "Goodbye World", and she started closing her eyes. Before I knew what I was doing I picked her up and ran to the house.
