I didn't like where this was going, Ben's hands crept around my neck, and I froze.
"Ben no." I whispered in his ear, trying to push him with my hands.
"What is it now?" Ben sighed heavily sitting up.
"I just don't want to do this." I was playing with my bracelet on my right wrist, thin golden chain with a fox image on the pendant that hung from it. I've always had it from as long as I could remember.
"O' come on Aaliyah." Ben moaned, then kissing my bare shoulder as if to tempt me. I got up off the fall and dusted myself down, I opened the door.
Ben grabbed me from behind pinning up against the shed wall; I could smell the alcohol on his breath now.
"Ben get off me." I told him, his brown eyes never left mine even as I struggled to get free. "Get let me go!"
"No Aaliyah, you said you wanted this." He purred to me.
"No I didn't, let me go!" I shouted feeling the range inside of me, feelings that I never felt before, were rising to the surface. "Get your grubby paws off me, or your be sorry." I threatened.
"Let me go now." I snarled at him, I actually snarled like an animal. Ben instantly let go off me stepping away. I walked away quickly, looking over my shoulder in case he lung at me. I needed to calm down, let the range that was still building inside of me die down.
"Ali are you ok." Briony voice was full of concern when she saw me.
"Yer I'm good, can you look after these for me?" I asked giving her my black sandals.
"Sure but are you ok, did Ben?" Briony asked.
"I'm fine." I lied to her then I started to run.
I loved running, the feel of the wind through my fiery orange hair (ginger). My long legs making me stride along the dark streets, my jade green eyes looking up to the half moon as if guiding me. The range that I was feeling was finally going away; I wasn't feeling tired at all, more alive and free.
I started to run home, knowing that this was going to be tricky.
"Shite." I whispered, only now just noticing that I left my bag in Ben shed. Now I didn't have a key to get in, nor my phone. I sighed and grumbled as I got to my front gate. A beam of light basted straight at me, making me blinks a few times.
"Get in here now young lady!" My dad bellowed at me.
"Jim the neighbours." My mums timed voice said.
"I don't care about the neighbours Maria; she's the one I having a go at!" He shouted. "Here now." He snapped slowly I walked to the front door, head down not meeting my dad anger face, my mums concern face.
I went to the kitchen and sat at the table, like so many times before ready to face the stand off between my parents.
