I can’t breath.
He’s literally stealing the breath from me as his fingers tighten around my
throat, his body pinning me down. His hand squeezes harder. My heart accelerates
to a dangerous level, feeling as if it will burst from my chest, but I refuse
to give up. I can’t. It would mean he wins. With all the strength I have left,
I keep trying to push his body off. My hands claw at his face and somehow I
manage to gouge his eyes with my fingernails. With a wail, he rises off my body
and loosens his grip around my neck.
With all my might,
I swing my arm up and my fist makes contact with his face; it shocks him momentarily,
allowing me to push him off enough to wiggle my way from under him. I’m still
breathless, barely able to move, but my only thought is escape.
“Get back here,
you bitch!” he shouts as he grabs onto my ankle, my body pulled to a stop.
Turning around, I kick him with my other foot and manage to break free once
I don’t have the
strength yet to stand up, but I manage to frantically crawl from his grasp to
keep him from pulling me down again. My fear and determination is what keeps me
moving. Sucking in a deep breath of air, I force myself up to my feet and start
I’m running for my
life at this point. My feet are moving on instinct, doing what they know best
as they attempt to put distance between us. I can hear him chasing me; his
panting breaths mere steps behind me, but I keep running, never looking back.
“You think you can
get away from me, Abigail?”
His words fuel my
fear, causing my legs to pump harder and my body to move faster, the air
swooshing by me, the world passing in a blur. I know he’s no longer behind me,
but I can still hear his panicked shouts.
“You belong to me!
I’ll find you and you’ll regret ever leaving me!”
