“Alyssa.” He had shouted.
“Yes,” I was reluctant to use the word ‘dad’, he wasn’t much like one, infact he wasn’t even. I wasn’t going to use his name Kane either. I ran down almost imediently. I stood before them. My foster parents; I could call Maddie mum. She was nice to me. I didn’t even remember my own mum. She had that worried look. Her eyes were sunken red and her cheeks were blazing. I could tell he had hit her. He then looked straight at me, and I could tell he was not happy….
“Your report!” He said, after a long moment of silence. “Take a look at it then!” He screamed. I was scared. “Explain then!”
“Well I tried my hardest.” I whispered.
“Tried your hardest?!” he shouted, “This is pathetic.” Maddie just looked at me and tried to smile. I knew she could not say anything. I knew what she was trapped in a relationship with a monster.
“I know, and I am sorry.” I said loudly so that he could actually hear me. He lifted up his had, and I thought he was going to hit me, but then his phone rang. He went out for a brief monment to answer it. He then came back in, “Got to go, my darlings.” He reached to kiss Maddie on the cheek, in a hast and he waved at me, then he was gone. I knew it and so did Maddie, he was cheating on her.
When I was sure he left, I moved towards Maddie.
“Your results were preety good. He just like to, You know.” I smiled at her.
“Are you okay? Did he hit you?” she aked.
“Don’t worry. Not all guys are bad, it’s the matter of finding the right one.” It reminded me of Chad. He would kill me, if he found out about Chad, but ot was complicated. He was nice and he liked me, and me like wise. I stared at the floor for a moment the sighed. “Maddie. I mean mum, well lately I met this guy, and I actuallt proper like him. I try to push him away but he won’t fall for it. I’m scared of what Kane will do.”
