I woke up in pain. A day never went by without the pain. Jacob was going to wake up soon. I got up slowly and went downstairs. I got out the eggs and bacon and made them up and put them on his plate. I was his pet. I had to do what he said or get hit.

When the food was ready I heard him come downstairs. I got his coffee ready and put it by his plate. I made myself two eggs and sat down.

"Good morning Danny."

"Good morning Jacob."

My day went by like anyother. I stayed home and cleaned or watched TV. I decided to make dinner at five. He usually came home at five but he said he was going drinking tonight.

By the time he came home the food was ready but he didn't want any. He came over to me and started kissing me. I pulled away from him.

"Why don't you eat?"

"I don't want to," he replied.

I backed away but he hit me. I kept my head down and felt the tears go down my cheeks. I wiped them away.

"I heard you're with another guy when you go out. Is it true?"

"No. I haven't gone out for awhile."

"Sure, sure. My friends don't lie."

"I don't either."

I felt my hand find a knife I hadn't put away yet. I grabbed it and stabbed him in the ribs and ran away from him. I ran into the living room and grabbed my purse and ran out of the house. I kept running and made it to the bus station unable to breathe. I sat down and decided where I wanted to go. I was going to New York City. I grabbed my wallet and counted how much I needed. I got my ticket for as soon as possible.

**Two Years Later**

I walked into my apartment in good spirits. I saw my boyfriend Carl watching TV. Jacob had never found me. I basically disappeared on him. I put my purse down and went to Carl and kissed him. It was eight at night and I wanted to sleep so I went to change. When I was ready I layed down and closed my eyes and fell asleep.

I started dreaming. It was like anyother dream. I saw Jacob angry and he would hit me. Each time I'd stabbed him and ran. I woke up with a start and cried again.

"If you were dead or still alive, I don't care."

Truth was I did. I always worried I'd see him again. This last dream however was different than the others. He hadn't come back at me after I stabbed him. Maybe it was over. Who knew if it was over or not.

The next day dragged on. I couldn't get the dream out of my mind. As I was leaving my office I could have sworn I'd seen Jacob. I got in my car quicker than I ever had. My phone started ringing and I jumped. It was a number I didn't know.

"Hello?"

"I know where you are Danny."

"No, you don't! Leave me alone."

"I do."

I hung up and drove as fast as I could. I noticed this one car kept following me. I kept calm and just drove around. When I got out of the city are I hit the gas. I saw no one and turned around and got to my apartment. When I walked in I sat down and cried. I thought about Jacob then fell asleep on the couch.

Carl gave me a kiss on my forehead. I woke up and sat up. I smiled at him. I hadn't had a dream that time. Carl walked away as I watched him go.

"I don't care about my past anymore. The future is where I look, not the past."

With that everything about Jacob left my mind and my new life started.
