Asha Piercing: A Short Story

Improved Essays
Asha Piercing had began to hate looking at her mother's house. It was a pearl white house surrounded by a big golden-wired fence, and enormously musculus pool;inside and out. It had a yard you would die for, because weeds never grew, yet the flowers in the yard were always healthy and bright. There were gardens of lily's plotted perfectly all around the walls. And the arching trees in the front made a normal walk to her mother's front door a dream.

The police would find him soon enough since she had called only two minutes after the incident, and they would be looking for her. Asha covered her eyes and cursed.

"He tried to hurt me." She informed herself. "He deserves this."

She shook her head and ducked behind the building as she heard sirens pulling up. Her mother would definitly send her back to the private school now. She wrapped her arms around her body and fell to her side. It was all too much; this feeling of losing. Asha felt angry with herself. She never wanted to lose again.

"Do you finally get it?" A voice said before crouching down beside

She told me that she had been trying to catch a ride home, since an hour earlier but no taxi would take the risk of getting stranded in between.
