WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
A hot summer day. Sun was high up in the sky. No human or animal could be seen around. The river was calm, without any disturbance. No sound of any bird could be heard. It was very calm that day
One must have heard of the phrase "Calmness before a storm."
The calmness was disturbed by the sound of Cassie's footsteps. Cassie had been on run from her kidnapper for last three days. The man who had held her captive for five years and now when she was free, the only thing she wanted to be happy once again, to be with her family once again but none of this was possible as her captive had destroyed her family. Killed her family, her loved once.
And now she was only left with her two years old daughter who looked exactly like Cassie.
The little girl has blue eyes, which was only thing she didn't heritage from her. Her eyes were uniquely beautiful, whoever looked in her eyes, gets easily lost in them.
Unluckily! The little beautiful girl's father was the same evil person who has held Cassie captive, tortured and raped her for five years. Cassie could remember her time with her beloved family and when the evil man stumbled into her life and turned it upside down. After torturing and raping Cassie, when he found that she was pregnant with his child, all he could think of killing Cassie but he always had a great desire of having a son. But when Cassie gave birth to a girl, the man was outraged and just wanted to kill the little girl along with her mother. But Cassie was able to escape from him by drugging him with the same tranquilizer, he had been using on her.
Now, Cassie was running along the river with her little daughter in her hands. All she could think of protecting her child. She was just praying to reach a safe place before her captive could find her. She knew she cannot outrun him but she was willing to sacrifice anything for the sake of her daughter.
While running she saw an old cottage near the river so she ran towards the it looked at the little girl in her arms who was soundly sleeping.
She looked her daughter for the last time, kissed her, all over her face and slowly kept her on the doorstep and rang the doorbell of the house. Looking at her beautiful little girl for the last time, she ran from there as she fast her feets could take her and she hid behind a tree.
