Sitting in my small , box room I feel safe. As I am  the only girl here , I'm expected to do all the chores but mainly washing up. Seeing as we have just ate dinner , I should be doing the dishes right now but the careworker , Steve, has forgotten about it, or so I thought...

" CANDY!!! What makes you think you can lazy around doing nothing when you should be washing the dishes!!!" Steve bellowed I ran down the stairs , panicking - I knew what was coming next. He was going to paddle me. " You know your usual punishment" Steve said as he pulled out a ladle " You shall be PADDLED!" . And with that he whipped me on the leg at an almighty speed. 

Looking at the cuts and bruises where Steve had paddled last week, I burst into tears. Ohh mum , why did you die? I knew , I've heard it a million times . I bet your thinking how??? One word : Steve. Ever since I came to this care home,  he has told me that my mum died because of me. I've always wondered if it was true. Probally wasn't. my eldest sister, Lilly would know. Lily, oh Lily. Last thing I heard about her that she was ill.  The last time I saw her was when I was born.She's probably better now and in a lovely care home ( well any care homes better than mine) . I need to get away , I need to leave , but I can't ! Or could I ?... I don't know.
