"stand and fight for your kingdom, rise to the challange, you can't escape your fate..." I ran, as fast as I could, my dark hair flying behind me. I tried to run from the voices, haunting me, the dark, visious voices, speaking of death and desteniey. I was afraid, but no matter how fast I ran, they chased me.
Breath slammed into my longs, but i still felt like I was being smothered by the darkness that surrounded me in the dense, cold, humid forest. I screamed out for help, but nothing came.
I ran faster, but I couldn't get away from the voices that chased me. Soon, i came to the sickoning relization, that the voices, Were in my head.
"Tori!!" Somthing was yelling and shaking me.
I flinched, instantly assosiating the rough behavior as my mother finding something to pin on me. I sat up, quickly, yanking away from the hands on me. I met some pretty blue eyes, and realized I was safe. My mother was clear across the country. Alexander was the one shaking me, and I sighed. "What?" I looked around, it was still really dark.
"You were screaming." he sighed, running a hand through his hair, "I got worried."
I nodded, and hugged him tightly, "I'm fine, Zander." I squezed my eyes shut, "I just had another nightmare."
"You act like you get them alot."
"I-i do..." I took a deep breath, "Ever scince... Darren..." i tried to finish, but my throat closed up. I missed him so much. I tried to keep the tears back, but they fell anyways, sobbs overtaking me.
Alexander pulled me close to him, holding me. ""I'm so sorry."
"W-why?" I asked, "it-it wasn't-your fault."
"Baby... I-i knowyou don't think that.. but it is..."
"W-what do you mean?"
"I was the one who swerved instead of hitting the deer."
I shoved him away from me, "WHAT"
"Baby, I'm so sorry."
"Get away from me!" I yelled.
"Please." I could feel him near me, and I screamed again, "Get the fuck away from me! You make me sick! Get away from me! AWAY! I never want to see you again!" Iyelled, "I'm going back to Flordia! Where I belong! FAR away from YOU" I screamed at him, and ran out of my room. I banged on Luke's door, "LUKE!"
He answered, shirtless, his hair a mess.
"A-alex...Alexander... He-he tried to R-rape me." I sobbed.
"Luke that's not what happened!" Alexander ran out after me, it didn't help that he was shirtless.
"Get out of my house, Alexander, and don't you dare show your face here ever again. Or I will kill you."
He sighed, and left, "i'm so sorry, Tori-ann... I really am.."
I slept in Luke's room that night, well, I didn't really sleep. i just staired up at the ceiling, my mind blank, everything numb.
Once the sun came up I went back into my room, and locked the door, shoving my dresser infront of it. I nailed boreds over the windows, and sealed everything off. I would be fine. I sat on my bed, and sobbed.
After a few hours, a knock sounded on my door, "Tori, are you in there?" my father's voice came.
"No. Go away." I said, back.
"Can I come in?"
He tried to open the door and sighed, "I knew i shouldn't have done the lock.."
I ignored him, and went over to my I-pod doc, and plugged in my MP3 player, turning the music all the way up. I laid tehre on my phone, texting.
"Hey, are you gonna be in school today?" james asked.
"Nope. I'm never going again. I'm locking myself in my room."
"Why? What happened?"
"it's a really long story."
"Maybe we can hang out later?"
"No, i'm locked in my room. I'm not comming out."
Luke started to text me too, but i just ignored it too. I eventally just sent everything to the junk box, along with all of Alexander's messages.
I fell asleep for awhile, and when I woke up, hunger pangs were going at me hard. I curled up into a ball, and took a deep breath. I stood, and walked over to the music, turning it off, and turning on the tv. I think I'll just watch tv for awhile.
