Behind The Gate

A gate. A padlock. No key. No one knows what is behind the gate. Do they want to find out? Who knows. What will happen if they find out? Who knows. But one girl decided to see for herself. And then her life is turned around..


8. Escaping

As I wake up I find myself staring at the white ceiling. What am I thinking now? I’m going to runaway. I throw my legs off the bed and look down into the hall. No one is there, not a sound to be heard. Excellent. I quickly jump into the bathroom and rush to the toilet. I come out, and look down the hallway; still, no one is there. Making my way to the window I keep looking over my shoulder to make sure no one is there. Early morning. This is it. Without looking back I jump out and then close the window.

“Yes” I whisper to myself. As I breathe I see my breath in front me and I start to shiver. I will warm up; I set off on a jog. Birds sing around me and trees rustle in the wind. This looks a good day. I am thinking happy thoughts today; I did sleep well last night. Running through trees and bushes my arms sting and blood trickles down my neck. Note to self: watch where I am running. I see open space ahead. This is looking good. I slow down, and then pull some of a tree away.

“Whoa...” I slip and fall down it. “Ahh!” I grab a hold of the trunk against the bank. I look down, water, I don’t want to go in it. “Oh God” I look back up, that’s where I want to be. Hoisting myself up I hear the truck snapping. “Ah na...” It falls down, I close my eyes as I move down with it. My heart is in my throat and I feel I am going to drop to my death.

It has stopped. Am I dead? I look forward, I am facing the bank. Where am I?

“Queen Hyna?” someone says on my left. I feel my eyes widen in my sockets as I look to my left. I am now facing a blue haired, pale faced, mermaid.
