My eyes fluttered open. I'm in my room, laying on my bed. Everything seems normal. But I remember everything. It's not the first time I blacked out. I've blacked out about five other times. It's horrible. I have a massive headache and I just want to go back to sleep.
I heard vibrating on my desk beside my bed. I reached over and grabbed my phone. I didn't check to see the caller ID.
"Hello?" My voice sounds groggy.
"Uhm.. Hey, this is Niall. Boss gave me your number cause you didn't come yesterday and told me to call and check up on you." He said sounded worried.
"Oh, Uhm... Yeah I'm fine, I-I was just.... Sick. Yeah I was sick. I'll be there today though. What time do I need to come in?" Sick?! Whose Hanna believe that!! What if I have bruises and scars that are noticeable?!
"Okay, do you feel better?" He asked totally buying that I was sick.
"Yeah, I mean I have a headache now but I'm all good." At least having a headache wasn't a lie.
"Okay, well work is at five. I'll see you at school in a couple minutes." We hung up shortly after we said our goodbyes. I checked the time it's only seven. I got up and took a shower and blow dried my hair. I don't wear make up, I just don't like it that much. I put on skinny jeans and my 5SOS shirt on with my black converses and my book bag. I grabbed my phone and headed out. Reed isn't here. He goes to work at five AM. And gets home about 10 PM Sunday since it's Friday.
I head to school and Elijah immediately asks me all these questions. I tell him everything and we head to Math Class.
Two periods pass and now it's Art Class. The one with Niall.
"Don't sit down we have a new seating arrangement." The Teacher calls out. There's only two to a table. I zone out until I hear my name. "Ender with Niall." I swear this is rigged or something! How can we be partners for both Work and School! We walk to our table In the back and start 'learning' art stuff.
"Y'all are gonna work with y'all's partner on y'all's free time to make a sculpture. Of anything that comes to mind. Be creative! Class Dismissed.
I get my stuff together and start heading out. It's lunch time and after lunch I can leave. I'm in honors so I only have three classes.
I spot Elijah and head to his table where we usually sit. I'm not gonna eat I'll eat later. Elijah and I usually don't talk since he's eating so I just play on my phone.
"Hey Ender!" I heard someone call my name. I look behind me and it's Niall. "So when do you want to start out project?"
"Today? I can after lunch." I state. Niall is allowed to leave too since he's a Senior.
"Okay. Are you ready?" He asks.
"Uhh... Yeah let's go." I say nervously.
"Can we go to your house? My mom will kill me if I have a girl over." He chuckles.
Kill?! My foster dad beats me all the time! His mom is nice and wouldn't hurt a single fly!
"Uhm... I guess so." I nod my head. Since Reed will be gone all weekend. He won't find out. We walk to my house and start working on our project.
'Knock knock' I heard someone at the door. I went and opened the door. SHIT! HHOW CAN HE BE HOME ALREADY?!
"WHAT THE HELL?! WHY IS THERE A BOY HERE?!! I LEAVE YOU FOR A COUPLE HOURS AND YOU BRING THIS PRICK OVER?!!" Reed yells and punches me.
"Don't touch her!!" I hear then I black out... AGAIN!
