19. Another Day Another... Death?!
Louis and I walked to school the usual and suddenly a girl ran past us screaming, "RUN! RUN! SCHOOL SHOOTING!" What? School shooting? That means... Oh my god! People can die! "Louis we need to help people!" I said. "No! Someone's got a gun, you can't go," he said. I didn't care, nobody could die. I darted around Louis. "HARMONY!" He screeched and ran after me. But I had a head start and there was no stopping me. I saw smoke and watched as the school was engulfed in flames, people screaming and running, students, teachers, staff. Some people were on the ground with burnt and blistered skin and others just bleeding with gunshot wounds, and others had both. The grass was on fire as well, spreading by the second and getting larger. A man turned around who was standing in front of the fire. "Why would you do this? Why would you kill innocent teenagers? Innocent adults? Why would you be as evil to torment those who don't know you?" I asked. He smiled. "Harmony, you'd never understand, even if I told you," he said. What? He knew my name? "Engulfed in flames, the world is dark, so I'm going to light it up," he said. "Sound familiar?" He asked.
"Harmony go outside and help Niall pick some apples," my mam said. "Ok," I replied and ran over the green grass to where Niall was standing on a chair to reach the apples. "Nialler! You'll never get done that way!" I said. Then I scrambled up the trunk to the top where the most ripe apples grew. I picked tons and through them into a basket. "Finished mother!" We yelled. We turned around and saw mam smiling at us doing laundry in front of the house. A figure of a man walked up to the house and we thought it was dad... Oh how we could have stopped it. He was holding something. A lighter. He lit our house on fire. "My Teddy Bear!" I screamed and ran into the house that slowly was getting bigger on fire. I ran to my bedroom and grabbed Glower. He was my bear. My mam ran inside. "HARMONY GET OUT!" She yelled grabbing me and tossing me out the door. My father was inside and now another was too. The man closed the door until it burned down. He pulled out a gun and grabbed me. "So Harmony, it looks like you are going to die today," the man said calmly. I sobbed so hard I couldn't breath. "SHUT UP!" He yelled pistol whipping my temple and making me fall to the grass. "NIALL!" I screeched. He quickly grabbed me and ran. I heard gunshots but I was blinded by fearful tears. Niall kept running, and he didn't get shot. Eventually, we went back to find the burnt bodies of our parents. Why would someone hurt them? They had no enemies, we had no enemies.
"You're pure evil! You killed my parents! You took away my life that I loved! And you don't even care!" I screamed. I ran up to him so fast he couldn't react. I was on too of him punching him, over and over and over with my hatred and rage increasing my strength. "YOU EVIL BASTARD YOU GO TO HELL!" I screamed louder than I ever had before and I punched faster and harder. I grabbed his shoulders and banged him on the burning ground over and over until Louis pulled me off. "NO LET ME GO! HE NEEDS TO DIE! HE KILLED MY PARENTS! HE KILLED MY HAPPY! HE KILLED EVERYTHING! HE IS SATAN! HE IS EVIL!" I screamed wriggling out of Louis grasp to kick the man. I heard a gunshot and kept going. I kicked until he was unconscious and threw him into the flames. I looked around to make sure no one was shot anymore than before. "Ok everyone's fine," I panted Louis stared at my stomach and quickly ran to me. "What?" I asked. Then I looked down and saw a hole in my shirt, and blood everywhere. I was shot.
Ooh! DRAMA OVERLOAD! Could you feel the intensity? I'll update soon! Thanks for the comments and stuff!
