How have I come to this?
I, never in a million years, thought that I would be in this position. Lord knows I tried so hard to forget and get a fresh start. My heart still aches, but now it even hurts more. Losing someone.... no, losing everyone, is bound to happen to me once more. It's not so long ago when I lost everyone in my life, and I don't want it to happen again.
Their eyes bore into me like heavy daggers, but still yearning and pleading. The youngest appeals, "Rachelle, please."
My thoughts are clouded, a single tear falls down my cheek. I lift my head to the heavens pleading God for help. I never wanted this to happen. All I wanted was to move away from the past, to start again, to live again. But I'm caught up in this mess I can't run away from. I just can't.
They stride towards me, dead set on their plan. I bow my head trying to hide the tears that are about to burst and step back nudging my heel on the wall behind me. There is no escape. I can feel their eyes on me. I lift my head to see them in front of me. They all look me in the eye. "Now you choose. One of us? Or none at all."
