Oh no! Oh no no no no no!
I'm squished into the back of the car. We're going to die! We're going to die! We're going to die!
I close my eyes tightly, bringing my knees to my chest and holding clumps of my hair.
I'm starting to rock, this car isn't going fast enough! It's not going fast enough!
I can hear someone say something about Ohio and lyrics fill my mind. I start to murmer the chorus of Ohio Is For Lovers by Hawthorne Heights.
"And I can't make it on my own.
Because my heart is in Ohio.
So cut my wrists and black my eyes.
So I can fall asleep tonight, or die.
Because you kill me.
You know you do, you kill me well.
You like it too, and I can tell.
You never stop until my final breath is gone."
I start to get louder as I rock faster. I'm shaking with fear.
"...So cut my wrists and black my eyes
So I can fall asleep tonight, or die..."
My grip tightens in my hair, bringing water to my eyes but I carry on resighting the lyrica over and over again, getting louder and louder as I move faster and faster.
Someone in the car is saying something but they sound muffled and distant.
I'm now shaking and rocking as fast as I can. The lyrics scream out of my throat.
"...You never stop until my final breath is gone..."
We're going to die! We're going to die! We're going to die!
Memories flash behind my closed eyelids.
There's one of my running with the fire stone. I've just stolen it from the temple for them.
They said they needed it. They wanted it and I was giving it to them. They choose me because of my ability. I ran in the temple and stole the fire stone before anyone realised. No one knew it was me.
Now there's one of me running out of the village, taking the fire stone with me. I'm running away from them. They want the stone but I'm not gonna give it to them...!
They're going to kill me! They're going to kill me! They're going to kill me! I scream these words inside my head, too afraid to speak my fears, too afraid of them being true like I know they are.
Suddenly his face is close to mine. He's once handsome face now twisted with anger and pure hatered. He smiles evily at me than lifts his sword and brings it to my chest.
I scream out, turning my arms into swords lashing out at everything, my eyes still firmly closed.
I don't wanna die! I don't wanna die! I DON'T WANNA DIE!
