Run...he is coming for you...
You can't stay here for ever..
There I was, just in the bathroom, pacing back and forth, with his blood on my fingers and tears rolling down my face...I can't believe I just did that...I look in the mirror, if I'm going to run, this look has to go..immediately.
I quickly grab the scissors and chop away at my hair, short and simple, I'll dye it when I get the money..
I know I just need a little bag of clothes and my necessities, then I make a dash for it..
Run...faster! He won't be able to get you if you run faster! Quicker Caroline, don't trip though, just run!
"Ma'am? Wake up..we are almost there and I think you're having a nightmare.."
I jump..."Um yeah..sorry about that.." I play with my hands nervously..
"Who is James?"
"James, you kept mumbling his name like you were scared of him.."
"He is um..no one.." I nod to reassure him..
"Are you sure? You sounded pretty scared. Do you have anywhere to stay when we arrive?"
"Um no, but I was going to get a hotel room, hopefully"
"No, come with me, to a real home, stay as long as you need."
"I don't even know you"
"I'm Conner, Conner Ambel. There you know me, you are?"
"I'm uh.." Should I tell him my name? "I'm Lizzie.."
"That's a pretty name."
"Ladies and Gentleman, welcome to NY. We are pulling into our bus station now, please do not leave anything on this bus, because it will never be returned again. I hope you all enjoyed this ride with us today, I hope to see you again."
Well here I go, with some strange man..
