Chapter 1: The promise
Amari POV: I must have dozed off because I felt a pair of hands wearing cold metallic rings touch my shoulder tenderly. Looking up I find myself staring at his silhouette "Hey sweetheart" I can't see his face but I know his smiling "Ahhh you touched me," I say almost screaming but I close my mouth shut. He places his finger against his face as he peels back to stand straight "Sorry, I'm just so excited you've never done that," I say softly. Shadow is a boy I met a couple of months ago every since then he's been coming over and reading me stories. He doesn't know it yet but in the future, he's going to be my boyfriend "And I'll never do it again but I know how much you wanted to talk so I woke you," he says his voice suddenly deep. He must also be growing up too "Your voice is getting deeper," I say smiling and he grunts "Yeah, I guess," he says nodding his head. Today for some reason he smells like the way my mother's car smells when something is broken and there's just smoke

Chapter 2: Change
Amari POV:It's been a year and I haven't seen or heard from him. Each night I stayed up hoping that he would be back to talk me through the night but he never came. My birthday is today. I know that falling for some random stranger is not okay but his no stranger to me. He made me feel like a princess just by hearing me talk about my day. Yet now I'm alone all over again. Sometimes I get mad at the fact he walked out on me but I tell myself that he had his reasons and I understand that. My mom says if something is meant to be it will come back to you. At least all I have to do is keep our promise "Happy birthday to you, happy birthday, happy birthday to you Amari " my mom sings the Italian version as she kisses me on the cheek while dad takes a video of the whole thing "My darling is 9 years old today" he starts sniffling as he looks at us through the camera lens "Don't you dare cry Dad " I roll my eyes smiling "You are just getting old and more and more beautiful" he starts tea

I don't even know where I am. I just want to go home. I'm still chained to the bedpost like a sad dog. I have no more tears left to cry over after this Sounds of locks being unlocked are heard before the door swings open "You a menace little lady," a male voice says. He comes to sit next to my bed in a wheelie chair. I don't say anything I just turn and I stare at him. "Well darling all you have to do is behave and take your medication and in no time you'll be out of this place free to go," he says tapping a syringe filled with a strange liquid. He brings it close to me and I try to get out of the chains away from him but it's useless "Calm down darling, it will all be over soon," he says rolling up my sleeve and injecting me with the syringe. I don't scream and I don't cry I mean what can I
