Another update to make up for my lack of updates lately :) I've been playing around and doing things in Harry's point of view, do you guys like it or should I just stick to it only being in Miranda's POV? Let me know what you think :)
I looked frantically around the park for those bouncy curls I haven't seen in the last ten minutes. I looked up at the slide that she was just sliding down and on the swing sets to see if she had went on those. I looked at the monkey bars and the smaller slide that's at the opposite side of the park, but with no such luck.
She was nowhere in site. I ran my fingers through my hair and took a deep breath before I panicked. She has to be around here somewhere, how does one lose a kid?
I swear, you zone out for 10 seconds and they disappear.
I groaned out loud before covering the grounds of the playground one more time. I have to find her, what would I tell my sister. Oh, sorry, I just lost your daughter at the park while I was supposed to be watching her. No big deal.
She's nowhere to be found. Where else would she go? I've never been to this park before, Gemma told me to take her here instead of the normal one because it's better. So much for that, because now Madilyn is gone.
I look left and right and don't notice anything around me but trees. Would she run in the forest? Probably. I jogged in there and started calling out her name, "Madilyn, where are you at?"
"Madi!" I yelled her name at the top of my lungs but to no avail. Where would she have gone?
At this point I was lost in the forest, all of the trees blended together and I had no idea how I was going to get out of here.
I looked for the nearest exit and saw a stream of light about 200 feet away from me. I started walking and breathed a sigh of relief when I was out of the forest, however now I was on the complete opposite side of the park.
I was about to turn back around and find another exit in the forest when I saw the back of a house in front of me. A really familiar house, at that.
I noticed the tire swing and the glider and smiled to myself. Only I'm gonna be sitting here smiling at a tire swing and a glider while my niece is fucking missing.
I snapped myself out of it and jogged to her front door, as it'd probably be weird to knock on her back door.
Maybe she can help me find Madilyn, since the forest is in her backyard. Maybe she's been in it before and knows how to get me back to the park?
Before I could talk myself out of it, I knocked, slightly out of breath from all of my jogging. I'm out of shape.
She opened the door adjourning the same high waisted jeans and crop top I saw her in earlier. She had taken her hair down though, and it flowed down her back in waves. There still isn't an ounce of makeup on her face yet she still looked flawless.
I cleared my throat and shook my head before I continued to stare at her, "I'm, uh, I'm sorry to bug you but I need your help with something. I somehow lost Madilyn and I can't find her anywhere and I don't know what to do and I thought she'd be in the forest so I went into it and got lost myself, and then I found an exit and appeared here and you're my only chance at finding her. I know I'm a fuck up, I can't believe I fucking lost a human being, but I really need your help," I rambled on and she looked at me with this really annoyed expression on her face. I know I probably pissed her off by ignoring her this week, but I lost my fucking niece, she could at least show some sympathy.
