My parents screams became louder as Liam pulled me down the stairs.The only way out was the front door,which wa in the living room, where my parents were.I swallowed and held tighter onto Liam's hands.We entered the living room and my parents turned to us.They scowled at me and I tried nt to cry.Liam pulled me toward the door.
"Where are you two goin?" My father,Dan,asked.
"WE're going to my house." Liam said.
Dan nodded,glared at me,then started to fight with Luara again.
Liam pulled me out the door and closed it behind him.We wlaked to his car and he opened the door for me.
"Thanks." I smiled.
He smiled slightly back at me and closed the door.Opening his door, he got in and pulled out of my driveway.About fifteen minutes down the road, Liam pulled down a road and we headed out into the country.He pulled into the gravel driveway of a diner.
"I thought we were going to your house." I said.
"We will after.I need to know what happen and my parents are at home." He said.
I nodded and got out of the car.Liam walked over to me and suck out his hand.I took it and we walked into the diner.
"What did they do?" Liam asked as the waiter left the table.
"They beat me again.: I whispered,ashamed that I'd let it happen.
Liam pulled me into a hug as I started to cry.
"It's okay.We'll find a way to stop the,I promise." He said.
I nodded,but continued to cry.The waiter came back and gave me a weird look but said nothing.He took our orders and I looked around the small diner.We were the only people there besides the workers.The walls were made of dark,oak wood.There were the same wooden tables and boothes around the entire place.The lights were dim .
"Are you okay?" Liam asked
I nodded and smiled at him.He smiled back and kissed my forehead.I leaned my head on his shoulder and thought about how it was when I was little.Everything had been simple and sweet.I'd never been hit or screamed at.I only cried when someone took my toys or I was sad;never because I was in serious pain.I sighed and turned to say something to Liam when a sharp oan shot through my side.
"Owww!" I screamed.
"Lane,what hurts?" He said.
I put my hands on my ribs and closed my eyes,wincing in pain.The stabbing pain was still there,but wasn't as bad as it had bee when I'd moved.
"Let me feel.I need to see of they're broken," He placed his handon my stomach,"THis may hurt a litte bit."
He pushed ina little to feel m sides and the pain came back.I gasped in pain and closed my eyes.Liam took his hands off my sides and pulled me into a hug,being careful not to toch my ribs.
"I think you may have broken a few." Liam said.
"What else hurts?"
"My ankle." I said.
