Quiets the Key
Crossing the boarder was the least of my problem. I ran as fast as I could making sure I would never turn back. I nearly tripped due to the long dress I wore to the fancy ball that night. It was 12:00 and no, I was no Cinderella. I was the exact opposite of Cinderella. I was running for my life! I could here the steps quickly catch up with me. I finally was given time to stop along a line of trees. One, with a hole in it large enough for me to squeeze into. I quickly tucked my self away into the hole disappearing into the night.
I could hear there voices disappear past my ears. I didn’t know for sure if I was safe so staying in the tree could possibly be the end of me. I nearly felt the need to escape the tight space. “Blue” a familiar voice whispered. It was my older brother. He inched closer to me. he was within a safe distance when he took a bullet to the head. I flinched a bit as his death wasn’t the first one I’d witnessed this night. I had to keep quiet so now was the time to keep myself together. He fell to the ground, eyes still open. I wanted to cry but I just knew I couldn’t. If I did cry I would be along side him. Luckily they left his body behind. He hadn’t revealed my hiding place. I slowly drifted away in the tree.
