Chapter 1: Memories

  I ran through the thick trees as I tried to escape him. I didn't know exactly where I was going, but away from him was good enough. I could hear the leaves crunch and the small twigs snap under his feet as he followed close behind me. "Alyce! I'm not gonna hurt you!" He shouted as if I might actually believe him. "Leave me alone, Alex!" I screamed as I increased my speed. Suddenly, the trees went away. I tripped over the overgrown root of the last tree and tumbled into a graveyard. My head hit the headstone and I could feel the warm blood run down my forehead. I crawled behind the headstone, hoping he wouldn't see me and would leave. He didn't. alex walked behind the headstone and slipped a small pocket knife out of his jacket. "No...Alex, please..."

"It's too late for me to forgive you, so don't even try to apologize." he growled through gritted teeth. "But Alex! I-I-I'm sorry!" i exclaimed through my tears. "For What?!"

"I don't know! Whatever I did to make you treat me like this!" i screamed up at him. He smirked at me and gave a small laugh. "It's not gonna work this time, Sweetie."  he said, putting emphasis on the last word. He kneeled on and raised the knife above his head. I cringed, waiting for the blow that would take my life. I barely opened my eyes to see if he was going to do it. i saw his arm come down with such force that-

  I jolted upright in my bed, awakened from my nightmare. I wiped the sweat from my face and flung the cover to the ground. I put my face in my hands and cried. Every night for two years I've had the same dream every night. A flashback of that night plays constantly in my head. I remember it all, no matter how much I try to forget it. Every sound, every smell, every thought that I had that night....they are all permanently etched into my brain. I lifted my head and glanced up at my alarm clock. 4:57 in the morning. 'Only one more hour,' I thought to myself. I couldn't go back to sleep or that dream would come back. I grabbed my iPhone 4s off my nightstand and texted my best friend, Jade.

I put my phone back on the table and let out a huge sigh. I looked around for a second and then decided to go take a shower. I gathered my clothes and a towel and went into the bathroom. i turned the hot water up really high, and when I opened the door an hour later, steam rolled out of the bathroom and covered the mirror. I got dressed and headed downstairs whhere my mom, stepdad and little brother were eating breakfast. "hey Alyce," said my 14 year old brother, Jackson. "hey, little bro," I replied softly. "Honey, are you okay?" asked Mom. I shook my head just enough to see, and she sighed. "Sweetie, it'll be-" then  she realized what she said. 'Sweetie.' "oh, I'm sorry, I-"

"It's okay, mom," i insisted, "I have to go." I got up out of my seat and rushed out the front door. As I closed the door I heard my stepdad say, "Drama queen." I rolled my eyes. I almost went back in the house, but I decided that Adam wasn't even worth my time. I got in my car and pulled out of the driveway.
