5. Chapter 5


You woke up and opened your eyes. Where am I? You shot up in your bed and looked around. You started to hyperventilate and you brought your knees up to your chest. You heard someone walking towards you. “Addie, it’s Eli…” He said while he sat on the bed next to you. He started to rub circles on your back but you pulled away quickly. “What’s wrong?” he asked quietly.

“I-I don’t know where I am…” you said in reply through breaths.

“You are in Alex’s room.”

“I am?” you looked up. You saw a Star Wars poster along with a Ozzy Osbourne poster. “Oh…” you said. You started to calm down and then wrapped your arms around him. And then you realized something. “I have school today…” You said sadly into his shoulder.

“Don’t go today then.” he said back.

“But I have to go.”

“We have the rest of the week off after today, right?”

“Yeah, they’re adding on to the school so they’re closing it today, remember?”

“Yeah, but why don’t you take a break. You need one... I’ll stay here with you.”

You sighed and agreed to staying home. “I should probably go and tell Mom what is happening.” he said.

“Okay.” you said back. He got up and walked out to go and tell Wendy what was happening. He came back a couple minutes later into Alex’s room and you were asleep again. He smiled and sat on the chair in the room and took out his phone. He texted Alex and told him why he wouldn’t be at school today.

Anna came walking sleepily down the hall and saw Eli in Alex’s room. She walked into to see what he was doing. She walked in and was very happy. “Addie!” she said happily running into the room. Eli shushed her and told her she was sleeping. “Why is she here?” Anna asked quietly.

“There was… It was complicated at her dad’s house…” he replied back not wanting to tell her that her dad hit her.

“Is she going to ride the bus to school today with us?” She asked happily.

“No, actually. I am going to stay here with her today.”

“Did you ask Mom?” Anna asked.

“Yeah. I think the bus is going to be here soon, so you should go downstairs now.” Eli told Anna quietly. She did as he asked, and not to long after she went down the bus came. The bus is loud so you could hear it from the room you were in. As it pulled away it woke you. You just sat there for a while staring at the wall thinking about Dad. As you kept thinking a tear rolled down your face. You wiped the tear from your face and rolled over.

“Eli?” you called quietly.

“Yeah?” he replied almost immediately.

“Do you want me to go and make us some breakfast?”

“You don’t have to. I will.”

“Please? I really want to make something…”

“Fine.” He sighed and you thanked him. You got up and then went down that stairs to the kitchen. You saw your phone on the couch. It must have fallen out when Alex carried me to his room last night. You walked over and grabbed it and turned it on. Texts from Dad filled the page.

You brought a hand up to your mouth in shock and nearly dropped your phone. Come home right now you little slut. Most of them were like that. You have no right to run away from me. You were too busy reading texts to hear Eli come up the stairs. You didn't hear him as he came up to you either. He put his hand on your shoulder and you moved away and looked back at him with fear. "I have to go back and get my stuff." You said through tears.

He looked at you with concern. "What's wrong?"

You shook your head showing that you wouldn't tell him. "I- I just need to go back and get my stuff while he is at work."

"I am coming with." He said protectively.

"No. I don't need your help. At least not for this." you said back strongly. He put a hand on your shoulder.

“Are you sure?”

“Yes… But if I am not back in two hours call me, okay?”

“Okay. Be safe.”

“I will be.” You pulled on your jacket and boots and walked out the door. “I’ll see you.” You said with a smile. Then you walked out.
