“Hey come here girly, I just wanna play.”
“No! Go away I don’t wanna play with you!”
“Now, now, Aria, you know what happens when you disobey me.”
The figures started to walk forward one hand outstretched grabbing my arm and yanking me up.
“No!” I screamed waking up with a start.
I was covered from head to toe in a cold sweat. Goosebumps covering my arms. I looked around checking my surroundings.
“It was just a dream.” I murmured to myself l, still trying to calm my rapid breathing.
I check my surroundings one more time to be sure, than get up heading towards the bedroom door. Looking around I quietly start down the stairs heading towards the kitchen. In the kitchen the lights are off, and everything is put away and organized. Turning the lights on I head towards the cup cabinet, grabbing a cup and heading towards the sink filling up the cup with water.
After drinking my cup of water I head back up the stairs to find my mother waiting for me at the top. Waking up in the middle of the night was a normal thing for me, even after three years of being free of my captors they still have my sleep.
“What was it this time?” She whispered with concern.
“It was just one of the many tortures I went though.” I responded quietly.
“Are you going to be okay?”
“Yeah, I’m just going to go back to sleep now.”
“Okay, sleep safe.” She said while kissing my forehead.
Once back in my room i flopped down on my bed, closing my eyes. I thought about the only good thing that had been in that part of my life, while falling back into a peaceful sleep.
Running through the halls I could see his eyes darting around making sure we were alone. Slowing down he came beside me and grabbed my hand and started running again. Pulling me into a room along the hall he slowly shut the door. Once in the room he pins me to the wall. Staring into his deep forest green eyes a shiver runs down my spine. Before I can ask anything he slams his lips down on mine, kissing me hard and passionately.
The room door slams open making a loud noise making him and me jump apart. Turning to the door we saw his father standing in the doorway, looking royally pissed with both of us.
“What were you two doing?!” He yelled.
“None of your business father.” Replied Leon.
“None of my business? If it wasn’t for me you wouldn’t know her! So get rid of that attitude and put her back where she belongs. And as for you, Missy, you’re going to get the punishment of your life.”
“Father! She did nothing wrong! She didn’t even want to leave the room!” Exclaimed Leon.
“Leo, it’s fine. I followed you, I knew what I was getting into if we got caught.” I murmured in his ear.
Spinning around Leon hugged me tightly nuzzling into my neck, he lightly but my sweet spot and than whispered into my ear, “Run . . .” Before he spun back around and delivered a hammer fist punch to his father’s face.
Slightly hesitant I ran to my room, grabbing my bag full of necessities and changing into a black crop top with black jeans and a blueish grey plaid button up shirt with combat boots. Rushing to the garage I dash to the hidden black dirt/street bike, and jumped on driving away from the only person I loved.
Walking down the street in the dark, I see a flash of movement ahead of me. Stopping I squint trying to make out what it was, seeing the outline of a human figure, my eyes day around trying to figure out what to do.
“Aria? Is that you?” Asked the figure.
“Leon?!” I replied relieved.
“Thank lord it’s you.”
Leon dashed to me, wrapped his arms around my waist and spun me around. Laying out a few giggles, I stared into his deep green eyes. Once he set me back down on the ground he framed my face with his hands and kissed me. Deepening the kiss I run my hands up his chest into his hair and slightly tugged on it.
“Bambina, don’t start something you can’t finish.” Leon groaned against my lips.
“But, Leon I want you.” I pouted.
“I told you, we had to wait until you’re older, at least eighteen.”
“Because if we did anything it would be illegal.”
Pecking his lips, I turned away from pouting.
“Come on don’t be like this. I don’t like it as much as you do.” Said Leon, frustrated.
“Then give in,” I said, spinning around and jumping into his unexpected arms, “Give into me. Please. “
“You make this so hard. You make it almost impossible to be the responsible.” Leon replied.
“Then don’t be. Be reckless with me, we don’t know when we will ever see each other again.”
“As tempting as that sounds, I want to wait so that it’s special, not while your on the run from my father,” Leon mumbled against my lips, “Plus I think you should get some sleep. You’ve been walking for hours on end and you have an even longer one tomorrow.”
“Will you stay with me tonight?! Please!” I whisper-yelled.
“Yes, only for you, my Bambina.”
Slowly waking up I snuggled closer to Leon. On instinct he wraps his arm around my waist making me feel safe and protected.
“I don’t want to leave you.” I murmured.
“You have to, I promise I’ll find you later on in life.” Leon mumbled sleepily.
“But what if you can’t find me because you end up in jail or dead or even worse you fall in love with someone else.” I whimpered on the verge of tears.
“Hey look at me,” he said while turning my head so I was looking into his eyes, “I’m not gonna go to jail or die, and I’m definitely not going to fall in love with someone else. I only love you.”
“I promise. I love you, Bambina.”
“I love you” was the last thing heard as the dream started to fade out . . .
