Fly Away


6. Into the Dark

I was starting to get weak once again. My knee was dripping with blood, and my stomach was growling as loud as a thunderstorm. I heard footsteps approaching. I hid behind a tree and stared nervously at the area where the footsteps were heard. The boy from the hideout appeared through the bushes.

"I know you're here." He said and stared at me.

"Look, I was just trying to go. You won't see me again." I sighed.

"Pearson, are you insane?!" The boy shouted.

"What? Why did ... how... huh?" I asked, questions racing through my mind.

He gave me a flyer, which said, 

   'Suspected murderer on the run, Family taken into custody' and next to the text was a big picture of me.

"No! My family! Where did you get this?!" I shouted.

"From the exact same way you're heading. While you were knocked out, I was gathering supplies." He said.

"I have to go back. I have to save them. This is all my fault." I said, my eyes tearing up.

I kept running until I saw the house, despite the pain, despite the guilt.
