Prologue ~ Letter From Mom

Dear Candice,

I miss you very much. I didn't mean what I said yesterday, It was a mistake. I do love you and you know that. I guess I didn't know you were so miserable....

Please, please come home! Your father misses you also, and your little sister Jaimie. We are the ones miserable without you. When you receive this letter, call me and come home a.s.a.p. !


Mom, Dad, and Jaimie.

P.s., there's some money in the envelope to buy some food in the meantime.


I crumpled up the letter and took the money out of the envelope. 'They don't miss me, I thought. Its a trap , I know. They just want me to feel guilty as I did the last five times I ran away so I can some back and be abused again.They don't love me either. They aren't even my real parents.....' Would I ever come back ? Come back to the Hell I was living?

Probably not.

Then there was Jaimie.


How could I have been so selfish! Jaimie shouldn't go through the same things I have gone through while growing up!

I needed to go back! The cold brushed against my face, causing me to shiver. 'Not Tonight. Tomorrow I'll go back.'

I haven't forgotten you, Jaimie.

I'm coming to get you.
