Chapter 1: Wrong Beginning
I woke up to the sun bringing streaks of light into the tent I was sleeping in. I sat myself up and stretched my arms out wide that transformed into a stressful yawn. Whatever happened the day before did not hit my mind. My memory just wouldn't bulge.
I was right about to stand up from my sitting position when I glanced to the right of me. My position sat there frozen from the shocking scene before me. My eyes widened but I couldn't get myself to move.
To the right of me, sleeping, was Haru. I shook my head violently and grabbed the blanket for support.
"No." I whispered. "No."
Why did I do it? I don't even like this guy! Why did I sleep with him? No! I didn't sleep with him!
A million thoughts floated in my mind as I looked down at the sleeping body. Haru's breathing was steady and his face looked so peaceful. His chest was bare and his hair was let loose without something to hold it up. I looked throughout the tent I was in and realized that Haru's clothing were deposited next to the small mattress we were in. The shocking thing about the site was that my dress and my pants were there along with Haru's clothing.
I got the energy to get myself up and grab my clothes. I put them on hurriedly and braided my hair rapidly. While I was braiding my hair, Haru woke up. He stretched his arms and sat up on his elbows.
"Good morning Katara. How's your day?" he asked.
I was furious. Did he do this to me? I didn't want to be with him. I never did. The guy I loved was probably out there looking for me while I was stuck in here with Haru. Not for long.
"My day? You wanna know about my day? Well I'll tell you. First of all, it's dawn which means my day hasn't even started yet. And second of all, my day has been really crappy since you came along! I don't even know where to start Haru! Why did you do this? You-you don't even know how furious I am right now! I want to get out of here right now. You hear me? R-right now!!!" I yelled with all of my strength but it didn't affect him at all. My anger was about to burst and I was on the verge of tears. Don't cry Katara, I thought, don't cry. It'll just prove your weakness.
Haru's expression did not change at all. He just smiled wickedly and walked over to me all drunk like. It was disgusting.
"Katara, Katara, Katara. You just don't understand. I had to do this or else you wouldn't come to love me." Haru answered. I gave him a threatening look. He sighed and put his arm around my shoulder. I shrugged it off. A tear fell down my face. But I wasn't going to accept defeat.
"You know what! I'm getting out of here right now! I don't care what you do you creep! I hate you! Get out of my life!"
I ran straight for the exit in the tent. For a second I actually thought I was going to be free. Free from his clutches and back to my love. The one who actually cared. The one who actually...but it didn't happen. I was right back to where I started. Haru grabbed my arm with a strong grip that made it hurt. He jolted me backward and against his chest. His face was no longer pleasant. It was full of anger.
"Nothing in this world is going to stop me from keeping you here. I mean nothing. So you better stay right where you belong or else. Not even your precious little love. I mean that idiot can't do anything! He's a son of a-"
"Don't you dare Haru!" Katara interrupted.
He threw her to the ground harshly, causing her to scrape her chin. This was a bad beginning for her. A very bad one.
