"WAKE UP!!!" I hear someone yell at me. I open my eyes to see the last person I want to see right now, Paul.
"What Paul??" I ask him nicer than I really should have. He looks at me like I have spoken to him out of turn and I know that I have. I look down at the thin blanket covering me. I hear him walk closer to me and then I feel his hand under my chin. He pulls my face up to look at him but I leave my eyes down, knowing that he will punish me for speaking out of turn. He says,"Look at me." When I don't he says,"Amber look at me."
I look up to see him looking at me with a look that I have never seen on his face. As I stare into his eyes and him into mine. We sit there for a moment just staring into his eyes. He then starts leaning towards me. With the life that I have had I think that he is going to hurt me. I flinch back but my back hits the headboard.
When I look back at his eyes I see that the unknown gaze is gone. He looks at me with the usual cold gaze he gives me is back in his eyes and I can see that he means business with me.
"Get ready. You have a big day ahead of you after what you said to me this morning." He walks out of the room after telling me that. "Ugh. Why?" I mumble to myself.
I get ready and then walk out of my 'room'. Paul is waiting for me in the television room. He was sitting on his butt watching some stupid show on MTV. I walk up behind him and say,"All ready sir. What do you need me to do today?"
He glances at me then turns his attention back to T.V. "I need you to make me the usual breakfast then clean the kitchen, the dinning room, my bedroom and my,bathroom. Come back when you are done with all of your assignments." I walk away and get going on the bacon, eggs, sausage, hash browns, and waffles.
When I am done I put his food on a tray and start walking back into the T.V. room. Instead of watching T.V. He is playing Call Of Duty on the Xbox 360. I walk in and set his food down on the coffee table in front of him. Making sure that I don't get in front of the T.V. I was only going to make that mistake once.
"Thank you Amber." He says. I haven't heard anyone say that since I was taken away from my family. "Your welcome. I have cleaning to do so I must go." I tell him he nods and says,"Go clean up."
As I walk away I can't hear gun fire and I can feel his gaze on my back. I ignore the instinct to turn and slap him because I knew that would only end with me getting punish. I walk out of the room and head back to the kitchen to clean it. As I clean I start to day dream.
I am sitting in a nice silk full length light green dress. My hair is flowing down my back and blowing slightly from the wind coming in the open window in the tower.
I walk over to the window and look outside. I look down at the ground and see someone riding in on a horse. He looks up at me and smiles. I smile back at him, recognizing him immediately. It's Josh, my childhood best friend. I hadn't seen him in years.
He was very hansom. He had on nice clothes and he looked as if he could be a prince. I had always thought of him as my prince but that was before I was ripped away from my family and from him....
I was pulled out of my day dream by someone screaming at me. I look up to see Paul. I flinch away from him while he yells,"YOU!!! DID I SAY THAT YOU COULD SLEEP?!?! NO!!! I SAID THAT YOU WOULD CLEAN THEN COME BACK TO ME FOR MORE WORK!!! I DID NOT SAY THAT YOU COULD LOUNGE AROUND AND SLEEP!!! WHY DO YOU SO THIS TO YOURSELF?!? YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE JUST GOING TO GET LOCKED IN YOUR ROOM WHEN I DON'T YOU!!! IF YOU DIDN'T DO THIS THEN MAYBE YOU COULD SIT DOWN AND WATCH A LITTLE T.V. WITH ME BUT NO YOU DON'T GET TO DO THAT BECAUSE YOU FALL ASLEEP WHENEVER YOU DON'T HAVE EYES ON YOU!!! YOU ALWAYS DO THIS!!! WHY DO YOU TORTURE YOURSELF?!?! I JUST DON'T GET YOU!!!" His face was bright red when he finished yelling at me. I am now standing up but cowering against a wall trying to make myself look smaller. Wishing that I could just disappear.
With that Paul walked off. I quickly went back to cleaning. I finish the kitchen fast and move to his bedroom. His door is closed so I know not to go in there. I walk off and head back up to my 'room'.
Tell me what you think please. Comment, vote, fan.
