Isabella Stewart 8 years old
I hide in the closet and try to bury myself deep into the musky smelling coats. I can hear mommy crying on the other side and daddy is shouting. I hate it when he shouts. I try not to make a noise; mommy always says to be quiet when daddy is in one of his moods. Daddy likes to hit mommy, I don't understand why she doesn't stop him. My teacher says the police can help but daddy is scary and says he'll kill me if I tell.
"You stupid whore! You think you can cheat on me? After everything I've done for you?" That's daddy shouting and following it is a loud smack and mommy screams. I try not to whimper I hate it when mommy screams. I hate daddy, I hate him, I hate him.
"Please! I wasn't cheating I swear!" Mommy yells. I hear more rustling and another shout before daddy answers her.
"You calling me a liar now? Are you saying I made this up?" I hear more banging and mommy's cries until suddenly they stop. For the longest time all there is, is silence, hot tears stream down my face and I hear the sound of daddy's boots on the floor.
"Isabella?" He shouts for me. I huddle deeper into my hiding spot stopping my breathing all together. But he's already throwing open the door ad yanking me out by the hair. I scream and kick at him tears of anger and fright blurring my vision, I see mommy lying on the floor she isn't moving.
"Let me go!" I scream and bite at his hand. Daddy drops me and shouts and punches a hole into the wall. I run heading for the door my heart pounding so loud and my lungs burning painfully. Daddy grabs the back of my t-shirt and throws me to the ground my head smacking the wooden floors. Everything seems to stop and the ringing in my ears becomes painful.
"Richard stop please honey don't hurt her. She's nothing come on let's go to the bedroom." I hear mommy say from somewhere behind me. What? Mommy no, no mommy don't let him hurt you! I think to myself since I didn't have the power to say it out loud. Daddy looks down at me his eyes black as night and his face red with anger, he points one chubby finger at me an evil look in those cold eyes.
"Your lucky." He hisses before spitting at me. I watch as he jerks mommy up harshly from the floor.
"N-no mommy don't do it…" I whimper out. She looks back at me her brown eyes dead and her face and body bruised and swollen. I didn't need to hear the words to know what she was thinking. Her and daddy disappear into the room and I fell asleep wondering how things got so bad.
Mommy laughed and played with my hair as I told her about school and how Derek Anders sat in the paste in Art. I smiled when mommy laughed it made me happy, she didn't do it much lately since daddy lost his job. Suddenly the apartment door swings open and daddy stands in the doorway his hair slick with rain. He looked angry and mommy sighed picking me up and heading for my room.
"What do you think your doing Samantha?" Daddy growled out.
"I'm putting our daughter to bed Richard." Mommy snaps at him turning and opening my bedroom door. I hear the sound of daddy's loud footsteps and look behind me to see him charging over at me and mommy his face filled with rage. He pushes us and mommy stumbles knocking me into a wall.
"What are you doing?" she shouts at him cradling my head in her hands. I was scared daddy has never pushed mommy before. Tears fill my eyes and daddy shouts more, mommy is shouting back and I struggle in her arms trying to pull away. Daddy is shouting more and mommy calls him a drunk. He hits her and we fall to the floor, mommy is crying, I hate it when mommy cries. I run at him and kick at his shins screaming at him from the top of my lungs.
"Stupid kid shut up!" Daddy shouts and I feel the back of his hand connect with my face before I see it. Everything blurs and smoke fills the house daddy's hands are hot and I hear mommy screaming again. I cough and blink the tears out of my eyes, smoke? I cough more and the screaming grows louder.
I look around the smoking room and blink hard tears immediately filling my eyes. Panic rises in my heart and I look around wildly for mommy.
"Mommy?" I cry and end up coughing, the black smoke filled the house and sweat poured down my back. I couldn't tell where it was coming from and I tried to stand up.
"Mommy?" I scream and head for the bed room door where mommy and daddy last were and reach for the knob. With a scream I yank my hand away, the knob was hot and the pain radiated all the way up my arm. I looked around wildly crying and screaming trying to find my way out of the apartment.
"Isabella!" Mommy screams from the bedroom. I run back the smoke becoming thicker and the fire now visible from in the kitchen. The heat shot way up there and my body was soaked with sweat. I rush and pound on the door screaming and yelling for help.
"Mommy I can't get in! Mommy! Help me!" I scream. I hear her harsh cries.
"Be good baby! Get out of the house Isabella! Go to the door and get out! Mommy loves you!" she screams.
"No mommy I won't leave you!" I yell shaking my head and going into a harsh coughing fit.
"GO NOW!" she screams her voice laced with pain and anger and they continue after that long ear piercing wails that sent me flying. I run through the smoke coughing, my lungs burning memories flashing so quickly in my mind that it made me light headed. I find the door and reach for the handle. That's when I saw him the man in yellow running down the hall towards me. I'm scared and my stomach pinches and my eyes burn, I can hardly take in any air at all. He grabs me and looks down at me I see a small glimpse of blue eyes before I pass out.
"Isabella?" A voice calls and I wake up. Suddenly the fire attacks my mind and I sit up straight looking around wildly.
"Shh its okay Isabella everything's fine." I look over and see a women standing in the doorway looking at me with calm blue eyes. She was obviously a doctor and I looked beside my bed eyeing the pitcher of water.
"Would you like me to get you some of that?" she asks. I nod my throat felt dry and my chest hurt. She pours me some water in a plastic cup before handing it to me, I drink it greedily the coolness washing away the ache.
"What happened?" I ask my voice sounding hoarse. The doctor stands patiently at the foot of my bed her face blank.
"Isabella I'm Doctor Elliot and I have some bad news for you dear. The apartment you were living in caught fire from the room next door. I'm afraid to say Isabella that it took the lives of both of you parents." The doctor says calmly. I gasp looking down at my hands; one I noticed suddenly was wrapped in gauze.
"They're dead?" I barely whispered tears filling my eyes.
"I truly am sorry Isabella but you were very lucky if the firefighter that saved you hadn't of come sooner you wouldn't be here." The doctor told me. I watch as a tear drop lands on my pale hand, mommy and daddy were gone? I was alone? This wasn't fair! I had never done anything wrong! Why my family? Why mommy and daddy? Why not me? The questions raced fast in my mind as I broke down into screaming sobs. The doctor showing some emotion comes around and hugs me shushing me softly.
"They're in a better place now dear." The doctor murmured in my ears. I ignored her and continued crying I felt bad for all the things I ever thought about daddy, I was sorry for saying the mean things to mommy about him. I felt bad for everything that's happened in the past year. My parent's didn't deserve to die in the fire, they didn't deserve to be burned alive and consumed by fire.
"Bella did your father ever beat you?" The doctor asks suddenly pulling back and looking me in the eyes. I freeze the tears and snot rolling down my face, I promised daddy. The doctor gives me a stern look and I shrink back from her gaze.
"Now Isabella you can tell me, it's okay." The doctor tells me. I feel a whole round of new tear fill my eyes and I shake my head. The doctor nods before she asks me to do a usual check up.
"Now take a deep breath for me." She instructs. I try to breathe in but couldn't fill my lungs all the way. I end up going into a coughing fit, Doctor Elliot handed me another thing of water and I drank it in two big gulps.
"That's just from the smoke inhalation it should get better by tomorrow." Doctor Elliot says. I nod quietly feeling absolutely tired.
"We'll discuss living arrangements and stuff tomorrow okay? You've had an awfully long day." Doctor Elliot continues talking while I get underneath the sheets of the uncomfortable hospital bed.
"Goodbye Doctor Elliot." I whisper my voice cracking.
"Goodnight Isabella." Were the last words I heard before I spiraled into a dark nightmare.
Here ya'll go, hope you liked it!
