"Can I go back now Mum?"

"No, I still need you Shelby. You can go back to school, but this is your home. Not Horizon."

She wanted to go back to the only place she called home, the only place she could be safe.

"You touched her?"

"I'm sorry Kitten, it won't happen again."

"You promised!"

He broke his promise, will she keep hers?

"He's going to be taken off the oxygen, he's going to be fine! Isn't it great?"

"Yeah.. great..."

He managed to get better, but will anything else get better?

"It's okay kitten, I am here now, no need to cry anymore. Everything is going to be okay."

"Please don't..."

Everything got worse.

"Don't do it Shelby, don't let him win."

"I can't do this anymore.."

Will she make it through this?

Or will she run again?

"You can't leave me with him..."

"I don't want to but I don't think I can stay here..."

Will she ever return to the place she calls home?

Or will she have to stay in her own personal hell?

And if she does go back, will she ever be the same person they all remember?
