"Hey Emerald" I heard Clayton yell out trying to get my attention. I keep going I know that I am currently two houses away from my own but I still don't want to take a chance. I'm never safe they are always watching me always. He's shuts the engine to the car off and gets out making his way towards me. "Emerald I came by to give you a ride to school." he says while getting in front of me to block my path. I keep my head down not looking at him. "Please say something" he begs. "Come on get in the car." he says. But there is a hint of growl in his voice showing that he is getting frustrated. I shake my head back and forth. "Why not? look at me and talk." he says through clenched teeth. I open my mouth and cough hard causing a lot of pain through out my whole body. I don't look up at him but hear him sniff the air. "Why is there the faint smell of a man and alcohol on you?" he practically growls again getting angry.
