I ran down the stairs, trying to catch my breath. My heart was pumping itself out of place. I leaped to the last step and threw myself into the kitchen. I found my sister clutching her ears and bashing her head against the wall. ‘Chris, honey stop it, I’m here now, Sshh be quiet,’ I cried to her trying to make her let go of her ears in order for her to hear me. ‘NO, GET AWAY!’ she threw me across the room and I smashed myself into the wall. She started to go bright red, shaking so hard I could see her from three metres away. Her eyes were pouring tears out. I sprinted over to her and hugged her so firmly, it hurt me. She then stopped; she relaxed; hugged me back and whispered… ‘I’m sorry Ashley, I’m really sorry, its -’ I cut her sentence off. ‘Just shush Chrissie, just be quiet,’ I demanded.
