I run so fast like my life depends on it. Never wanting to look back as I grab her hand and pull us further away from the dreadful cabin. What he did to her was unforgivable, to us, to all of them. If they couldn’t tell their own story, I guess I would have to. Could life truly get any worse than it already is? When I look into my sister’s tear stricken eyes, I say no! I will never let him touch her again. I will make it my life’s mission to protect her for the rest of my life, but that’s a long time from now and it’s only the beginning. This is my story.
