A close escape

Extracts from this document...


A Close Escape. The cold burst of wind shot a frozen sensation up my spine. I sat there, all alone curled up in a ball to retain the heat. I wondered, "Why is she doing this to me?" My eyes locked on the rotting door, waiting for HER to enter. As I sat there in my ball, rocking back and forth trying and wishing to get myself back to sleep, I could hear the sound of freedom. The birds singing, the autumn trees hitting against the fragile glass, knowing that if I escape I could be free too, but I know that, that will never happen. As I am mother's prisoner! I had one way and one way only of admiring the outside world. I dragged my lifeless body across the cold cement floor to the garage door. I peeped through the smallest crack and saw light. Even though I could only see the slightest piece of God's creation, it was magnificent. The vibrant colours made my eyes hurt, the smell was unreal. I can see a family walking down the street, and my heart starts to ache as I thought about how lucky and happy they were. ...read more.


I wish she couldn't see me then maybe I wouldn't be her slave. "You! Get up and do your chores, you're so worthless, who would want a child like you!!" she shrieked like a banshee as she tugged me up the cracked stairs by the ear. "Clean the toilets!" mother squealed in my ear, whilst she handed me a brown worn out toothbrush, to clean the dirty toilets with... again I went off into my own world, that toothbrush used to be mine, when I was actually part of the family, I missed the good days! Suddenly my nose began to pick up the smell of freshness... then my eyes seized up, mother had left the front door open, I stood at the top of the garage steps amazed at what I was seeing, the real world. I could make a break for it now and mother wouldn't suspect a thing, she probably wouldn't even realise I was gone. What am I saying of course she would, who would clean up and make her food she certainly cant do any of these things for herself, she can barely stand. She needs me. ...read more.


I ran into a park and hid myself beneath the foliage. I could hear police sirens ringing in my ears. Every little noise made me flinch. A leaf rustling, a twig snapping or even an innocent birds chirp. This was torture, just waiting and not knowing what was happening. Maybe it would be better if I went home; at least I would be out of my misery once and for all. My eyes started to droop and I fell into a deep sleep. I felt a sharp pain searing through my shoulder and my body left the floor. It was the police. My worst nightmare had come true! I was thrown into the back of the car; my fragile body collided with the window. I looked on helplessly as my beautiful surroundings would once again turn into darkness. We pulled up outside the house, mother came to the door, and she put on her fake smile and actually made it look like she gives a damn about me. "Thank God you found him, I was so worried!" I actually started to believe it myself, maybe this has made her realise and change, but no as soon as we were behind closed doors, the sick games started once again. ?? ?? ?? ??
