The next morning I wake up to the sounds of moving trucks. I slowly get out of bed and approach the blinding light from the window. I look out to a large truck of boxes as the movers carry each box with extreme care. I begin to hum my favorite song as my mind wanders into guessing who the new neighbors are. I stop, paralyzed in fear as I hear a beautiful voice begin to sing to the exact song I was humming. I turn to the window and creep over to see where it's coming from. I listen and my eyes wander to the window of the new neighbor's attic, and standing there in the window he stands. The boy who had followed me 2 days ago. He was living right across from me. Singing my song. "A twisted road plays out like a rhyme, revealing itself alittle at a time, turn the corner leave what's behind, outta sight and outta mind, outta sight and outta mind." I stood there hypnotized by his voice and his eyes. His eyes were the color of rubies. After he stopped he disappeared from the window. I ran down stairs past my sleeping cousin, and straight to the door of his house. I knocked 5 times. No answer. The movers left. And still no answer. I could faintly make out breathing behind the wooden door. Instead of walking back to my house I went to the river. I like walking alongside the running rapids and hearing the sound of the waves crashing against the mossy stones. I layed down in the grass trying to forget the ruby eyed boy. But I couldn't get those eyes out of my head. Something about them made me feel...safe. Suddenly I could heard the sound of crunching grass and I prepared myself for what would come next. My father is a human. But he is not a good one. He would get extremely drunk and beat me and my mother. (one of the reasons I'm so shy to talk to anyone) the only reason i never acted shy around Raven was because she stood up to my dad once. But she wasn't here to save me this time. He grabbed my arm tightly and slammed me against a tree. "You like that don't you?!" he laughed. I cried out in pain. He grabbed me again and began to punch and kick me violently as I curled up on the ground begging him to stop. He finally stopped and walked away yelling to me, "If you tell anyone I beat you I will kill your mother." I layed there. Knowing he wasn't kidding. I slowly brought myself home. I walked past Raven as fast as I could so she wouldn't see.If she would have seen me she would call the police. And I didn't want to trouble her. I climbed back into bed and bandaged my wounds. I covered my bruises. I prayed that tomorrow didn't come.
