i felt sore and bad, my hand automatically went to my
my head hurt, and so did the rest of my broken
i looked at my hand and realized someone was kind enough
to put bandages where i was cut.
which was more than just my hand, my stomach was wrapped
my left arm my right hand and my legs.
i looked around and found myself in a big room, it was
well except for the spider webs and a little bit of dust,
it was nice.
hm who would do this for me? i wondered.
it wasn;t the first weird thing, on the side table there
was a plate of fruit, fresh fruit.
well that was nice i thought. i reached over, winced a
little at the pain, and grabbed an apple.
my favorite. i took a bite out of it, and then suddenly i
herd footsteps coming up the stairs.
the door creeked open slightly and stepping in was the
boy who saved me.
he looked at me with wide eyes and a happy trusting
"well i'm glad your awake now, i thought you might have
gone into a coma." he said nervously.
he had bandages and such in his hands.
the boy was good-looking, blonde-brown hair hazel eyes
and well built.
i looked at him questiongly.
"your not afraid or disgusted by me at all?" i asked
he looked at me confused.
"No. why would i be? you've always been the nicest person
and cutest around." he said smiling reasurringly.
"My master told me that people would always be scared of
me"i said, then un-wanted tears began to fill up my
he came up to me and sat on the bed then he patted me on
the back and said it was okay.
but it wasn't, i knew it wasn;t and so did he.
i knew my master would send angry people out to get me
and really kill me.
i pushed away from and narrowed my still crying
"its not okay! it'll never be okay!" i screamed.
then stopped and looked at him. he was smiling sadly at
me, but he was still smiling.
"anna i know it's not okay, but you'll have to trust me
to protect you. i'll never let anyone hurt you as long as i'm
around." he said.
then crying happy tears i flung myself at the boy and
said thank you.
i never really planned on trusting anyone not even
myself. but for some strange reason i trusted this boy.
he was nice and kind and sweet to me, even though i was
freak against nature.
and for another strange reason i didn;t feel like a freak
anymore, now that i'm around this boy i feel almost
i blinked then leaned away from him again.
"um i'm sorry but, who are you exactly?" i
"my name is connor." he said.
" thank you so much connor." before he could say your
welcome i hurried on "um this might sound crazy but for some
reason i feel like i've known you forever" i said.
" its not crazy anna it's true." he said smiling. i knew
my face was a big question mark but he shook his head and
"i'll tell you when your better." with that he got up and
walked to the door.
"um will you stay here with me?" i asked gently, the last
thing i wanted was to be left completely alone.
"of course. if you need anything i'll be downstairs,
okay?" he said.
i smiled a huge smile and said okay. he smiled at me
again then went downstairs.
i've never felt so happy in my life. it's like a switch
was thrown inside me and it felt warm.
i ate the last few bites of my apple then laid
i hadn't realized it was almost night time. i geuss i
cried almost all day.
damn i am one crazy chick as my uncle larry would
i miss everyone from the circus except master. i don't
miss that awful man one bit.
if i did then call me insane.
i closed my eyes and listened to the sound connors heart
along with the tv *giggle*.
as soon as i fell asleep i opened my dreaming selfs
"hiya anna!" the little boy said.
"hi um......" i trailed off, it was dream so why don't i
know the names of the people i dream about?
"connor! silly anna! do you wanna play or sit here and
count the clouds?" the who called himself connor.
my imagination has lost it's damn mind, how can i dream
about connor as a child if i didn't know what he looked like as a
then i realised, i have been dreaming about this kid for
more than 6 years. he was always there.
"i know what your thinking. you just wanna count clouds
again huh?" he said. all i did was nod and smile.
"you don't do much do you?" he asked.
"i guess not." my dreaming self said.
"hey relax it'll be fine, your with me now. remember, i
promised i'd be around and protect you" he said and smiled older
connors big goofy smile.
it may have took me forever but now i know, connor was
always there for me.
even when i was a kid.
i woke up from my dream and walked downstairs.
just as i suspected connor was asleep on the
i bent down and kissed his cheek.
"thank you connor, for always being there just like you
promised." i whispered in his ear.
he smiled his big goofy grin again and that made me
i walked back upstairs and laid back down.
