I Am Not Afraid To Walk This World Alone.

Riley Hicks is a different type of teenage girl. She wants to fit in, but no one likes her. To get through the day of torture she suffers at school, she listens to the words of her saviours. My Chemical Romance. When listening to them, the school's horror fades away, but that all changes when she gets home. With her mother gone from the fear, Riley is left in her father's abusive hands. But what will happen when she finally escapes, just to find a "stranger" that helps her... *My entry for the Battle Of The Fandoms competition.*

7. Chapter Seven - Dad????

 A/N - Hey guys! I am SO SO SO sorry that I haven't uploaded in ages, but I have been away for a while. I was on a University experience. It was AMAZING! Anyway, back to the story. I hope you're enjoying!

~~~~~~~~~~~
We were about to walk outside when Gerard turned me down a different corridor. 

"Why-"

"Frank's gonna bring the car to the back."

"Oh okay." Then I see the paparazzi outside. "Oh!"

"Yep."

We reach the back entrance of the hospital and, sure enough, Frank was standing next to a black car with darkened windows. He opened the back door for me and I climbed in. Gerard put my bag next to me and shut the door. I sat waiting for Gerard to get in the front before we left the hospital grounds. I put my head phones in and shut my eyes.

I woke up and I was in a strange bed. I heard yelling and crashing. That's when I heard the voice. His voice. 

"Where the fuck are you hiding her?"

"I don't know who you are or what you are doing in my house, but get out!" Gerard screams. 

"Don't lie to me, ass hole."

"Don't you dare call my brother an ass hole! If anyone's the ass hole, it's you!"

"Don't fuck with me kid!"

"Yeah, what're you gonna do about it!"

I hear a gunshot and Gerard scream out for his brother. No... He wouldn't have. 

"What the hell are you doing coming into our house and shooting people, you fucking douche bag!" Frank, no, he can't. Another gunshot. I whip my legs over the side of the bed. 

"Dad!" I scream, "Dad, stop! Please!" 

"Riley! Get your ass down here!"

"Riley, stay where you are!" I heard Gerard call. I ignored him. I race down the stairs to see Ray holding back Gerard and my Dad holding a gun at them. As I watch my Dad and Gerard, I realise Gerard's face is exactly like The Ghost Of You video, after Mikey is killed. That's when it sinks in. My Father is a murderer. I stand in front of Gerard, not moving when he attempts to push me out of the way. 

"Dad. Put the gun down."

"Why the fuck do you think I'm gonna do that, bitch?"

"How dare you talk to your own daughter like that?" Gerard says behind me, struggling against Ray.

"Gerard, calm down. You've already lost the others, don't let Ray lose you as well." I don't look at Gerard as I say this. My eyes are locked on Dad's. I can feel the tears on my face, but I stay as strong as I can. For Ray. For Gerard. For Mikey and Frank. I take a deep breath and take a step forwards. "Dad. Don't hurt them. Please. I will follow you and do what you want, just don't hurt them."

"Too late." He pushes me to the side and fires two shots. I scream. No, no, no! Gerard and Ray slide to the floor. Gerard is still struggling to fight. I drop to his side, trying to apply pressure to his wound. 

"No," He says, weakly. "Riley, you're dreaming. Wake up."

"What?"

"Riley!" I'm shaken awake. Gerard is stood over me. "Are you okay? We heard a scream." 

I look down at his torso. Plain white t-shirt. No blood. No bullets. No Dad. I break down again.

"I'm so sorry!" I sniff, "I dreamt - I dreamt Dad found us. H-he shot Mikey and Frank and then you and Ray."

"We're fine. Look. Guys!" He calls down the stairs. A few moments later, in piled Ray, Frank and Mikey."

"What?" Frank asked.

"Riley had a nightmare. I was just proving we're okay."

"I'm honoured that you are worried about me!" Mikey exclaimed, making me laugh a bit. The boys left, leaving Gerard sitting next to me on the bed.

"Is this-"

"My bed? Yeah."

"Oh." I looked around. I was a big bed. I yawned. Gerard laughed. He pulled me into his chest and began to sing. Within minutes, I was asleep. 

I never said I'd lie and wait forever
If I died, we'd be together
I can't always just forget her
But she could try

At the end of the world
Or the last thing I see
You are
Never coming home
Never coming home
Could I? Should I?
And all the things that you never ever told me
And all the smiles that are never ever...
Ever...

Get the feeling that you're never
All alone and I remember now
At the top of my lungs in my arms she dies
She dies

At the end of the world
Or the last thing I see
You are
Never coming home
Never coming home
Could I? Should I?
And all the things that you never ever told me
And all the smiles that are ever gonna haunt me
Never coming home 
Never coming home
Could I? Should I?
And all the wounds that are ever gonna scar me
For all the ghosts that are never gonna catch me

If I fall
If I fall (down)

At the end of the world
Or the last thing I see
You are
Never coming home
Never coming home
Never coming home
Never coming home
And all the things that you never ever told me
And all the smiles that are ever gonna haunt me
Never coming home
Never coming home
Could I? Should I?
And all the wounds that are ever gonna scar me
For all the ghosts that are never gonna...
