Start writing here ...I do not own any HON characters all I own is Skysong, Silversong, Feathersong, Rainsong,Wolfsong, Hakan, Hania, and Dyami all rights to HON characters go to P.C and her daughter Kristin I know it seems like I took the character Skysong from Tamara Pierce but I didnt I used the name without thinking so for those of you who read Tamara Pierces books dont get mad at me its not the same character just the same name.
I watched as my twin brother Rephaim sat on our bed in our hotel room thinking about god knows what. I walked to him and sat next to him; I knew that if Rephaim needed my advice on something that he'd tell me. It had been a few days since we had left our home town trying to escape from HIM and it was starting to take its toll on my twin as we fought to find a safe place for us and our younger siblings to live.
I wrapped my arm around Rephaims shoulders and he leaned into the comfort I always offered him when I thought he needed it. Our brother Nisroc and his twin sister Silversong were laying on the opposite bed sound asleep. I looked at Rephaim and was glad they were asleep because he was crying. We both hated it when our younger siblings caught us crying so we always tried to keep from crying as we remembered the siblings we left behind.
Rephaim turned his head and pressed his head against my shoulder. Instinctively I wrapped my arms around him. It was one of the few things we could have done for each other during the time our so called father had been beating us before we were old enough to leave and take some of our siblings with us a few of our brothers and all four of our younger sisters. Rephaim and I were used to comforting each other when we were helpless against HIS onslaught when he was beating one of our siblings or one of us. We had taken a total of four brothers with us Nisroc being the oldest out of the four of them. The others names are Hakan, Hania and Dyami they were in sleeping bags on the floor along with our sisters Feathersong, Rainsong, and Wolfsong.
I rubbed Rephaims back when I felt his shoulders begin to quiver, I could tell he was fighting to keep from sobbing. We had left our siblings behind and I knew he was upset that we hadn't been able to save them as well. Rephaim and I froze the minute we heard a familiar voice talking with the hotel manager demanding to know where we were. I felt Rephaim grip my shirt, and move his head to where he could easily hear what was going on.
"I don't know who your talking about sir." the manager said.
"Yes you do I know my children are here!" HE exclaimed.
I traded a glance with Rephaim and we both knew we'd have to get out of there before he found us or found a way to make the manager cave and tell him where we were. We listened as they both left then we silently began to wake our siblings. Nisroc went to say something or complain about being woken up but I slapped my hand over his mouth and gave him a look. Nisroc shut his mouth and everyone began to silently pack up.
I peeked out the window to see where HE was at at this point and I saw his car leaving the motel parking lot. I turned around and nodded to my siblings and they silently made their way out to Rephaims car and my car. We packed up then my sisters and I got into my car while Rephaim and our brothers got into his car. I started my car and lead the way out of the parking lot. I drove to the intersection and then let Rephaim get in front of me. We drove all night until we finally came to a small town called Henrietta, Oklahoma. Rephaim pulled over and got out and walked back to us. I rolled my window down and pointed at a house that was for sale we knew we could share rooms we had before we'd ran off with our brothers and sisters.
Rephaim and I looked the house over before deciding to buy it. I had saved up plenty of money from working on cars before Rephaim and I were old enough to take our brothers and sisters away with us. Rephaim had saved up to we had worked together so we had both saved our money. We made sure everyone had their own rooms and then we began to unpack. My room was next to Rephaims as Silversong's was next to Nisroc's the others rooms varied.
