"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.
