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.

10. Verity

The moment I saw his face, the world around me ceased to exist. The people talking, drinking and laughing in the cafe merged into blackness, while I remained. He told me not to scream, but I couldn't anyway. My lungs felt like they were collapsing in on me, I could hardly breathe, let alone scream in fear.

For months all I've had are nightmares of his face, seeing his ice eyes in the pitch black. I see him smile a Cheshire cat grin, while I cry. I don't cry because of the pain, but out of fear, because I don't know whether I'll wake up. But I do. I wake up in a pool of sweat and tears, screaming. Jay is always there, holding me, rocking me. My dad never comes in anymore, just drowns himself in liquor, as he's done ever since he was beaten up by Kian's goons. My mum can never kiss my forehead and stroke my hair. How can a dead woman comfort me?

I know where he's taking me, back to his flat. I escaped that place once, but now I'm going back.

Why did I get in his car?

Why didn't I scream?

Will I ever go home?
