When my dad had finally dragged me to the car, I saw his face, he was red with anger, but this time it was different. Normally he didn’t think twice at calling me all sorts when he was like
this, not even in public. The ride home felt like a hundred years, but he still didn’t say anything, I was starting to fear the worst.
As soon as we stepped over the threshold to the house he went off like a boiling kettle,
“HOW DARE YOU BE SO DISRESPECTFUL TO OUR FAMILY? FIRST YOU DRESS LIKE THAT! THEN YOU DISOBEY OUR RULES, GO INTO TOWN TO SEE SOME TALENTLESS BAND, AND SKIP SCHOOL, WELL YOUR GONNA PAY FOR
YOUR ACTIONS!” I tried pleading with him,
“Dad, I’m sorry I didn’t mean it, I won’t do it again”, it was no use, he raised his hand and hit me across the face, I fell to the ground and hit my head on something, the last thing I
remember was a warm liquid surrounding my face and then I blacked out.
Several hours later I woke up in the hospital and checked my phone, I had a new message,
“Hey it’s Andy. Are you O.K? Your dad seemed really upset”. I didn’t know how to reply, I didn’t want him to worry, so I sent back,
“I’m O.K, nice to hear from you J” I got out of the bed, and looked in the mirror, I had six stitches on my forehead, just above my eyebrow, and a black eye. Then my phone started
“Hello?” I asked suspiciously, as I didn’t recognize the number,
“Hey! It’s Andy, I was wondering if you wanted to hang out tonight?”
“I’d love to, but I don’t think I’ll be allowed, my dad’s not in a very good mood”,
“Oh, that’s cool” there was a short pause, then he said,
“I’ve got it! Why don’t I come to your house?”
“I still don’t know if you’d be allowed, I’ll text you”.
“Alright have you and your parents fell back in yet?”
“Sort of”, I lied
“Wha-” my dad burst into the hospital room,
“WHO ARE YOU TALKING TO? IS IT SOMEONE FROM THAT BAND?” before I could answer he snatched my phone and screamed,
“DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT PHONE MY DAUGHTER AGAIN” he hung up the phone and looked at me,
“This better teach you not to disobey me again” he threw my phone on the bed and stormed out. All I could do was cry, I felt like my life was falling apart and I didn’t know how to fix
