I didn’t dream that night, I didn’t even have a nightmare. Ha. Even a nightmare would be better than this terrifying torture.

Edward was gone.

How could I live without him. Even though we hadn’t even been together for that long I still felt like everything revolved around him. He was everything, everything I wanted, everything I needed…everything I don’t have.

My frail fingers traced the words Edward had carved, as I lay on the floor sobbing. I had no idea on how long I had been lying here, I only knew that the bell had rang 54 times. I didn’t want to eat though, I felt physically sick at the thought.

I loved Edward, I just hoped he loved me too. Down in the pit of my stomach I knew that he wouldn’t be waiting though, he would have moved on with his life. After all, why would he spent his time waiting for me, it’s not like I’m anything special. I’m just some desperate girl Edward had met…But, I loved him. I loved him so much. I don’t know how longer I can live without him, I don’t know how I survived all this time without him. I don’t think I can take anymore of this, Edward was my life. I needed him.

I brought my head up from the ground slightly, and automatically got a head rush. Stupid dizziness. That’s when I noticed that no one was around, where had everyone gone? It wasn’t meal time, because there was no sickening smell of burnt puke. Was this a dream? Surely I couldn’t be dreaming if my emotions were so realistic.

I lay back down on the concentrated and listened to the muted thuds coming from the roof, hopefully this would take my mind off Edward. But, it wasn’t working, all I could think about was Edward…

Wait.

Muted thuds coming from the roof, that only meant one thing: Rain. It was raining. That means everyone is outside. Although I couldn’t take the happy atmosphere when it rains, there was one possibility that lingered on the back of my mind. I needed an attempt to complete it.

I quickly got up from the ground and bolted for the door which lead into the rain (obviously tripping over along the way). I didn’t hesitate when I got outside either.

The rain came down a ton at a time, which made it almost impossible to open your eyelids fully. But, I could make out the shapes of cheerful people, enjoying this short downpour while it lasted. Ha. Enjoyment was the last thing from my mind.

Without warning my mind presented the memory of last time it had rained. Without that one time I don’t think me and Edward would have fallen in love. He would of never brought me back safely - which would never of let to Edward coming back to see me the day after out of curiosity - which would of never let to love. He would of probably ignored Alice’s wild vision, and told her that she was crazy.

I shook my head, and tried to snap out of my thoughts. I knew it would just lead to another breakdown anyway. I had to get this plan over and done with.

The barbed wire stood stiffly, towering twenty feet over my head. I had to be quick, and I had to be successful too. For if I wasn’t it would only lead to me getting caught and hurt. What would I do if that happened?

I didn’t bother to get angry by the rain which drenched me from head to foot. I’ve never cared about my appearance, so why should I start now. I knew that my hair already looked like a haystack without the rain, and my clothes were far from clean.

In one quick sprint I made my way over to the barb wire fence. With all my might I yanked myself up it, even though the metal pierced my arms and legs. I made an effort to ignore the curious stares too, I knew no one would dare to follow me anyway.

I was half way up when I felt myself feeling faint, but I knew that I couldn’t give up now, after all I was closer to my dream. I stopped for five brief seconds to regain my breath before carrying on.

You can do it. You can do it. I chanted in my head.

When I reached the top I had a dilemma. What the hell was I going to do now!?! It’s not like I can jump down, it was too far a drop. That was classed as suicide.

“There she is!” I herd a husky voice coming from behind me.

I automatically swivelled my head around to meet the angry glares of four, gun loaded men. What was I going to do now!?! Then I heard gun fires. I needed to get down from here quickly.

I hurled myself round the other side of the fence and started to climb down, as fast as I could. Surely they weren’t going to climb up here after me were they? They couldn’t.

When I got half way down I jumped. It wasn’t very far, but I still landed on my back. I stood up straight and ran without looking back. They couldn’t catch up with me now, I was too far out of their reach.

Then it dawned on me: I was in a big, dried out, field, in the middle of nowhere. I didn’t even know what state I was in, so how the hell was I going to find my way home. It was impossible.

After about two miles I was seriously out of breath, and not knowing where I was, pretty scared too. But happiness out powered the nervousness, happiness that I was free of the flea ridden place. I was one hundred percent free! Ahhh, it felt good. In fact, it almost brought a smile to my miserably face.

I stopped and sat down on a wet tree trunk. I then looked at my surroundings. I was deep in an overcrowded forest, the tree’s shelter me from the fierce rain that pelted down in the bucket load. Thick green moss covered every inch of this vast forest, only letting the occasional weed or flower grow.

One question was haunting my mind, and I wasn’t sure if I wanted to answer it. Where was I going to go from here? That one small choice I had made today was completely going to effect the rest of my life. I didn’t know where I was. I didn’t know how I was going to get back home. And I didn’t know when I was going to see Edward again. I would probably spend the rest of my existence running around in circles trying to find the way out…There was no way out.

I was suddenly brought out of my confusing daydream when I realised that darkness now seeped in through the tiny gaps in the leaves. Night had finally come.

I jumped off the tree trunk and onto the damp floor, I was now used to sleeping in uncomfortable places. The damp wet ground was no match for the stone cold floor. The soggy moss and spiky weeds would be like a mattress made by angels. Ahhh.

I let the sound of rustling leaves and howling wind sooth me to sleep, until finally in deep sleep.

Thunder crashed and lightning rolled as I ran through the mass forest. My feet seemed to be heavy under me, as if they were dragging me down. The storm was getting wilder and I could sense that the worst was yet to come. It sent shivers down my spine.

The weird thing was, I wasn’t sure what exactly I was running from. Nothing could seem so frightening and deadly that it sent my heart and adrenalin into overload, until I was constantly shaking. This made it harder to run.

Lightning stuck, making the sky flash with light for a second. That’s when I saw it coming for me. One huge tree shook beside me. The thunder let out a menacing laugh. The massive tree toppled over, until it now lay painfully over my legs, making it impossible to move.

The pain was unbearable, causing me to choke with pain…

I screamed in agony.

It took me a second to realise what was happening. Certainly the last bit of my frightening dream had been reality, as I looked at the ten ton tree now crimpling my fragile legs.

I screamed once more.
