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..


22. Home

In fresh clothes now I go down and see Laura. 

"Come on darling I'm taking you home" she says. 

"... where's my other clothes?" I ask. 

"In the wash, now come on I'm taking you to your mum" she takes my hand and drags me out to her car and puts me in the back. I sit up to see the dashboard to see it is 12 o clock. I don't get it, why wont she listen to me? She hasn't let me say much at all. Does she know something? There's so many questions to ask. 

A few minutes later we arrive at home. My Dad's at work and my Mum's in, just as I thought. Laura lets me out and guides me to the door. She rings the doorbell, I see my Mum coming. 

"Rachel... where have you been honey?" she asks sounding worried. 

"Mum" I say hugging her. She leads me into the dining room and sits down. 

"Where have you been?"

"I went behind the gate down the road, I saw pirates, dinosaurs, angels - " Laura puts her hand over my mouth. 

"Nicola, I woke her up when I went in. I found her in her room, she's been having night terrors again" Laura cuts in. 

"Oh no not again, Rachel go to your room honey" Mum says putting her hand on her hand. 

"But... that didn't happen" I say. 

"Rachel please go to your room I don't want to have to tell you again"

"B - "

"Rachel!" without another word I sprint out the room and upstairs. I sit outside of my room so I can listen to what there saying. "Oh Laura I really don't know what to do" 

"Nicola you need to take her to a doctor" Laura says. 

"I'm scared they'll take her away" 

"They won't, she's only sixteen, it's not going to go away... you need to take her to a doctor" 

"Okay... okay... I need time"

"Make it soon" I hear my Mum cry. I go into my room and shut my door. Staring out of my window for a while, I make out two flying figures, its Jess and Sky. I gasp, and run to the window, they wave and fly off into the distance. That's it, it's over. Laura won't believe me and my Mum thinks I need help. I fall on to my bed and cry. There are still many things I don't understand and never will. Why won't Laura listen to me? Why won't she believe me? Something tells me she knows what's behind the gate. But why won't she tell me anything? It seems I am the only one who knows what lies behind the gate.
