Anna's gone. That's all I get in my head before I block the world out and push away from the arms trying to get me and run out into the street.
My father runs after me "lily!" He shouts out into the darkness "please wait!" But I don't wait. I run.
I don't think I just run as fast as I can into the streets of New York hopping for a way out. Maybe I'll find something or somewhere to go I don't care so long as I don't have to see her.
All pale and with a cloth draped over her. no! this can not be happening!!! my breathing becomes heavy and difficult, and my eyes tear.... i have to get out of here.
i run blindly to the front doors of the hospital and straight out into the rain. its pooring but i run, into a small alley and then i crumble against the walls sobbing loudly.
i fell my pockets for anything but all i find is a small pocket knife me and Anna used to carve our names into the tree at home.
i throw it away and get up ready to find some bar and get so drunk i don't remember but at that moment a man walks out of the alley and straight towards me....
i turn and walk quickly away but i hear his steps follow me. "what do you want?" i ask sharply and he smiles a crazy smile that looks like a clown.
i suck in a breath and step back but just then he pulls a knife. he steps forward and i turn running blindly through the streets trying to get away.
i fell hands grab me and i fall hard onto the ground my head making a thunking sound when it hits. black spots appear.
"by the time this is done you'll feel what Anna felt when she lost her mother" he whispers and just before the world goes black i remember words Anna said " when i went to the hospital i
saw what happend to her it was more then cancer. someone poisoned her and then hurt her in more ways then one, she never had those scars.
and a man was in the lobby he had this smile like a clown and looked half mad." this was the same man, and he was here to kill her just like he killed Anna and her mother.
