Adrianna’s POV February 3rd, 2014 The cold winter air was starting to sting my lungs as I desperately tried to catch my breath. I couldn't stop, not when I was so close to having a taste of freedom. I couldn't see through the tears that fell from my eyes as I ran. I run and I run, but I'm not getting anywhere. It felt like I was trapped. I always return to their house out of sheer fear that they will later find me and break me beyond repair. I just wanted to leave the family to pursue my dreams. I'm just a few weeks shy of eighteen and they try to claim that I'm nothing more than a troublesome kid that they dearly love. They do not care for me, they never have. My family make me want to do absolutely anything to escape. They cause me pain: physically, mentally, and emotionally. My father is the reason the hope in my eyes has died. My mother is the reason why the brightness of my smile has dimmed. My older brother is the reason why my voice has quieted. They are the reasons my pride is no longer inside. I have tried to reason with them, I truly have tried. Yet, they don't want to listen. They are too caught up in their world that they seemed to have forgotten that everybody else is entitled to live a life of their choosing. It's one of the reasons why I must remind myself, "I'm not one of them." I finally stop on a bridge to catch my breath. I grab my phone and the screen glares up at me while I check the time. '12:07am' I left an hour ago. I look out over the bay of my hometown, sighing to myself as I climb up on the stone railing to sit on it. The zephyr cools my sweat ridden face as I stare out across the water. I sit in silence, listening to the waves gently crash on the bank underneath the bridge. I hear loud voices and loud laughter behind me but I do not turn around to see if they were drunks or just loud people taking a walk. I swing my legs as I tear my gaze from the water and I look up at the starry night. Every time I run away, I make sure it's a moonless night to avoid being seen. I close my eyes, hearing the loud scuffle behind me suddenly stop. I'm jolted out of my peaceful introspection by a rather smooth voice, "Hey, are you okay?" I turn slightly, noticing the group of males behind me. I didn't know what to say. I didn't talk to anybody but my family. I didn't know how to handle a situation like this. One of the males clears his throat. "I asked you a question, miss." I ignore his question for the time being. He had silver hair that was slicked back. The other six had hair colors of varying shades of brown, black, and red but my gaze was drawn to the one with silver hair. I finally think over his question and how I should answer it. "You…could say that I am," I hesitantly answered. They all share a look. "If you're okay, then why are you sitting on the railing?" The silver haired boy asks, raising an eyebrow. I glance back at the water. "Why stand to view the water, when you can sit?" I retort, glancing back at them. They share another look. "But you are crying." He states. I frown, touching my cheek to find that he's right. I was crying, and I didn't know why. "Why I'm crying is none of your business." I murmur, turning away from them. "It is when it seems like a girl our age is sitting on a bridge as if she's going to jump." A new voice, a deeper one, bluntly states. His tone sends chills down my spine. I spin around, swinging my legs back over the stone railing. I stand up, rolling my shoulders. Before I could even say anything, I felt something akin to pins and needles shoot up and down my body as I stare at the silver haired male. Suddenly, my head was spinning and my vision tunneled. I didn't even realize that my knees gave out until I was caught by somebody. My body was like the falling dry leaves of autumn. I couldn’t hear properly. Everything was starting to sound as if I was underwater. The only thought that ran through my mind as my vision blacked out was, ‘It’s gonna be ok, it’s gonna be ok.’ _+_=*=_+_ _+_=*=_+_ _+_=*=_+_ _+_=*=_+_
