"You want to go get tacos?" he asks from the gap between our houses "It's 2:34 AM! We have school tomorrow!" i shout being the good girl i am. "So?" " You are watching your life slip right past you. Live a little. You can stay here, get some sleep, wake up in the morning and do the same thing you do every day. Or, you can get your skinny butt dressed, and climb out your window, and go on an adventure with me at two in the morning and eat some taco's." He gives me a pointed look, before shrugging his shoulders "Your choice." My life was boring and bland. I am abused by my step father. I simply wait for the next beating to come or perhaps life to rip out from under me, leaving me to die in peace. And then he waltzed into my life, bringing his antics and drama with him. Only he breathed life back into me, he showed me what I was missing, he brought me back to life. But if he finds out about what my real story is. The reason behind the scars that zag across my wrists, will he run away? Leave me like my father left me? Or will i simply be not good enough, like I was't good enough for my father?
