I scrolled hurriedly through my contacts, searching
for someone to call.
I dialed Ruth's number first. She answered at the
once. I carefully explained the situation to her.
She was as empathetic as i expected, but she
couldn't let me stay at her house. Her parents
wouldn't allow it.
I called Hannah next. We could barely hear each
other. The sound if loud music in the background
was enough evidence that she was no where close
to her house.
I walked about aimlessly for a while, feeling bitter
and sad. I couldn't just lie down anywere, i was
scared.
I sat at the foot of a mango tree, watching passers
by, and thinking about my predicament.
Everyone seemed so happy in my family, everyone
but me. My parents had no love for me, they put me
in a prison all my life, and now they want to
humiliate me.
I hated my parents, I thought they were the worst
ever.
I had run away from home, but I have no where to
run to. The sky began to change, small flashes of
lightening began to appear in the sky.
It was going to rain, and i was outside on the streets.
It was then the foolishness of running away hit me.
I had no where else to go, i had to conceal myself
from the rain. So I decided to go home.
I got up, and slowly walked back towards my house.
The battering may continue, but i couldn't stay
outdoors at night.
On my way back, my phone rang. The ring tone was
special. I need not look at the screen to know it was
Ehis.
His call turned out to b the only silver lining in my
dark cloud of misery. I touched the answer button,
and answered with the meekest voice possible.
"were are you? Ruth just told me what happened" he
asked, almost sounding worried.
I explained everything i could, as well as my
decision to go back to the house.
"No don't go, I'm coming to pick you" he replied,
and ended the call giving me no room to refuse.
I walked back, and sat on the tree, anticipating his
arrival.
It took quite a while, but he arrived finally.
As soon as he parked, he hurried out of the car, and
ran towards me. He pulled me up to my feet, and
hugged me so tight.
I was weak and exhausted, hungry and tired. But
Ehis's hug brought light back into my world.
He lead my slowly to the car, opened the door and
let me in. I felt a measure of peace and comfort
once again, as he zoomed of into the dark cold
night.
My parents constantly warned me to stay away from
boys. They ll go to any length to monitor and control
me.
If only they knew that their action had led me into
the hands on another boy, on a cold dark night.
