7. Waking the Demon
It plays games. Walking in the shadows. Watching me. And when I'm alone he comes out and walks around in the room. He tells me that Alex is happier with out me. He doesn't even care that I'm gone. That I was never special. That it doesn't matter how hard I try I'll always be part of the A Team. He plays over and over everything that's happened to me. Everyday the same thing.
I started screaming. And screaming. I was falling down. Into my uncles trap. I couldn't wake up. The nurses came in and woke me up, she looked at me and I pushed her away. The door was wide open. I bolted for it. I ran and ran. Slipping and falling on the freshly polished tiles. Everything looked the same. I fond the exit and ran out. My feet were soar and my body ached but I kept running. The hospital wasn't too far away from Roses house. I picked up the passé and ran till I got to her front door. Before I even had time to nock she opened the door and pulled me inside. I stood there panting "Katie!" She cried hugging me I hugged her back, she was my only female friend and she was so caring, "Alex said you might try running away and because I'm the closest I should keep an eye out for you." She said not letting go of me, "he-he cares?" I asked trying to catch my breath. "Of course he does! He's your boyfriend,he's been sitting her for about two days not eating or sleeping waiting for you!" She said to me locking the door and taking a step back, I started to cry. I explained everything to her. The Demon the fact that well I was in the hospital I tried killing myself to get away from the demon, what the demon would show me. And my theory behind what or who could stop it.
The child safety and police came to Rose's home. I sat in the living room hugging myself. "No! You can't take her! She's safe her! She ran away for a reason! Don't you think locking a fifteen year old girl away not letting her out to see her friends or anyone she cares for would send her insane?!" Rose argued with them, "It's fine Rose. I shouldn't have put you in this position, I'm sorry. The best thing I can do to keep you all happy and safe is go with them. Just don't tell Alex I was here." I said standing up Rose was terrified "I told him I would keep you here and safe until he could get here and take you back!" She sobbed I hugged her, "Tell him the truth then." And I walked out and got in their car.
I sat alone in a pure white hallway, with jet black chairs all along the wall. People walked in and out of doors and halls not noticing me sitting there. Then one man came over and sat beside me. He was tall and had red hair, he was wearing a suit. He looked at me then turned sideways to face me, "Are you...Kate Harris?" He asked checking his clipboard, I didn't answer, "It's just Kate." I said I didn't have a last name I wasn't a Harris. I was an A Team girl. "Ummmmm ok? Well you can follow me." He said a little unsure, I got up and followed him through the big double doors at the end of the hallway. "Today you'll be meeting with your uncle." He said looking back at me I watched the ground and didn't stop, I stayed in my silent bubble.
"Kate, you're coming home with me." My uncle said after a discussion I couldn't remember, "mmmm." I said not even pretending to care.
As we left the hospital my uncle put his arm around me and pulled me close, "You're in so much trouble! You'll pay for this you little fucker!" He whispered in my ear aggressively. I knew what he meant by pay. He had someone waiting for me, or he was going to beat the shit out of me.
