I step into the room, fear creating a heat envelope around me. I can sense the fragrance change, the temperature drops and the wind hitting the trees.
Am I safe? Are they coming for me? Will I be able to escape from this spiralling mess?
I regret not speaking my mind. If I had spoken that day, I wouldn't be stuck in this situation now.
I sense movement in the ground. Someone's coming. My heart starts to race, I can feel my blood pressure get higher and higher.
*Tap, tap, tap
No. This can't be happening.
*Open the door. GOD DAMN OPEN IT
*There's no use yelling. Break-in. Today, it's either she dies or we die.
I go grab the nearest object- a vase. I don't know how useful it is, but i cannot be unarmed. The doorknob starts turning vigorously, going in all directions trying to open. I stand there, next to the door, holding on to my dear life.
I wish to survive, but, I've had enough.
The scares from family, not relationship, the backstabs from ex - best friends not boyfriends.
*Let's go. I don't think she's here.
*If we don't find her, boss is going to kill us.
I felt the wooden flooring shake. Were they nearing? Or were they retreating? I just stood there in silence for few minutes. Gathering courage, I unlocked the door and saw the hallway scattered and broken. They had left.
And I'm still alive.

Molly: I wasn’t sure if I wanted to start this one as the characters are a bit younger but I wanted to see if this poor girl would finally be able to be free of abuse and open to accept love (family) and be able to heal. It’s is great so far, minimal spelling errors, I think the Spanish isn’t necessary ...

2jlynn: Cannot imagine all that went on in Annalisa had going on in her life the past 2 years... then to top it off with her dad stepping in taking care of everything her an Eagle would need yet expecting nothing in return. Yes, it's a book, but nothing can stop the dreaming.
