I heard footsteps coming towards my room. I went and hid in my closet. My bedroom door opened.
"Misaki where are you?" A hushed voice asked.
I came out of my closet and ran over to my brother. "Big brother is daddy mad at me?" I whined. "You know I didn't mean to kill mommy right brother?"
"I know you didn't mean to sis, but that's not going to change the fact that father blames you for it," my brother said. Jellal hugged me.
I cried. "Father hates me. He really hates me."
My brother guided me to the bed. "Sit," he whispered.
I nodded. I sat down and my brother guided my head onto his lap. I fell asleep for a while.
"Misaki you little brat," a cold, desolate voice said. "You're dead."
I shot up. "What did I do daddy? I didn't mean to kill mommy."
"It doesn't matter. My wife died because of you. You're an omen. You should've died that day not her."
My father came over to me and started choking me. "Daddy please stop," I squeaked. "I can't breathe."
My father used what magic he had left against me.
"Your pitiful. You shouldn't be allowed to live. Go ahead cry. No one will ever save you."
I crawled back into my bed and laid back down.
"Misaki wake up," a voice whispered. "Dad's asleep come on. I'll get you out of here."
"Big brother?" I asked groggily. "What do you mean daddy's asleep?"
"It'll be okay. He won't hurt you ever again."
I nodded. "Okay."
My big brother grabbed my hand and dragged me out of the house.
We were a few blocks away from the house. No one seemed to notice, if they did they didn't seem to care, that two children were wandering around in the streets.
"Big brother where are we going?" I asked him. "Won't daddy come after us?"
He stopped. Jellal turned and faced me. He shook his head. "Dad won't. I won't let him hurt you ever again."
I nodded. I smiled. "Thank you big brother."
Jellal shook his head. "I wanted my little sister to be safe."
I ran into his arms. I smiled. "Thank you. Thank you for saving me big brother."
"I found a place for us to stay. Follow me."
I nodded. I held his hand.
"Where are we going to be staying big brother?" I asked after a while.
"You'll see sis," he answered. "It's somewhere safe where no one can harm you ever again."
