Screams invade the streets of wadeville and nothing startles Leigh then moaning and undying terror coming from the seeping window frames of her tiny home , its a hard knock life living in johannesburg with crime st staring you in the face as you walk down the street ,she awakes with much tremor in her eyes .. What is it now , where are all these screams coming from , she pierces her big blue eyes out the window and it appears to be coming for the house down the road , 241 wadeville. This house was like no other , the residents were hardly ever home and quiet frankly it looked haunted on a day to day basis , but for some reason they were rather noisy on that particular day , Leigh was brave and both on her fluffy pink slippers and her green faded night gown and ran out the house . She walked briskly towards the house and she stood looking through the misty windows at a tall dark man with broad shoulders and a fierce look on his face as he scream at the petite helpless lady , Leigh was afraid to intervene as she once did , but now she was not the 5 year old little girl who watched her mother lay at the side of her bedroom door covered with blood she was much older and could help the women, she banged the door with all her might , and shouted , You should stop what you are doing or else I shall call the police .silence crept in the house and the man and women seem to have listened . It was 7.30 already and Leigh name echoed throughout the tiny shabby apartment , her mother May was calling her as she was getting ready to leave for work , Leigh with silk brown hair and big blue eyes was her only child , May had been married to Leigh father for almost 7 years before she decided to go through with a divorce and he hadn't been in there lives for 9 years already . He was an abusive man and continue to abuse and torture May , Leigh was aware of this and for that reason had become as strong as she was today . I'm coming mum ! Screamed Leigh , rushing down the stairs , she grabbed her bag and headed straight out the door ,as Leigh was walking down the road she saw a handsome young man walking ahead , she was quiet smitten on first glance and watched him with aura
