Broken Sparrow

Verity is young nineteen year old girl, with her life laid out before her, but her life seems to have already ended. The boy she was with since she was fifteen has made her life a living hell, however, her heart belongs to another, but the feral punishments that will follow if she goes with him are unimaginable. People thought London was a city of dreams and prosperity, filled with promise, but now the only promise she is filled with is a nightmare.

I ran towards my car and fumbled with the keys, my hands wouldn't stop shaking. I didn't know why I was shaking, fear or anger? Maybe both. 

I turned the key in the ignition and the engine jutted. I looked in my rear view mirror and saw smoke billowing from my exhaust pipe. This cannot be happening. My car picks its moments to work, but this can't happen now. I need to get Verity. 

I try to bring some life into my car for ten minutes, it's useless. Steam flows from the bonnet, that's when I know I'm going on foot. My heart slows and I wipe away the sweat from my forehead. What if I'm too late? My head began to spin, hundreds of scenarios flooded my brain, and none of them were good.

I swung open the glove compartment, and the gun stared at me. I was reluctant to hold it, or use it. I only ever had it for protection, never out of purposeful aggression. I run my hands over it. It was cold, like death was radiating from it. I look inside, it's fully loaded.  

Let's hope I get to her in time.
