From someone else's point of view I had the perfect life: posh house on a country estate, loving and caring family, good looks and i did well in school. But they didn't know what was happening behind closed doors. What i was going through as a person.

Behind the large mahogany doors to the Dawson family home was a troubled and unsettling family life. I never saw my dad who worked away from home as a business man, i was lucky to see him twice a year. My mother was posh snob who everyone in the neighbourhood secretly hated and my brother was in prison. He was wrongly accused of murder when a man broke into our house last summer, he hit him on the head with a bat not knowing that one blow would kill him, but it did. He pleaded not guilty but his pleas were ignored and nobody believed that he was just trying to protect his family. One harsh jury if you ask me.

So now you know how messed up my family life is. And i haven't even gotten to me yet. I'm being bullied at school and have resorted to all manners of things to help me forget from drugs to self harm - all of them work for a small period of time - but i am damaging myself for the future. My grades are slipping and my life is a mess. I'm stuck in a dark hole and i don't know how to get out. I'm falling from grace as they say, funny. My names Grace. 

It all started at the beginning of fifth year in school. I had many friends back then, we weren't the POPULAR gang but we weren't a bunch of losers either, we had fun and sat together for lunch. But after fourth year my friends left the school and i was left alone. I started fifth year as the little fish in a big pond and i was way out of my depth until i found a girl called Olivia. She was similar to me and we soon started hanging out. She was a quiet girl who loved art and soon introduced me to a group of her friends. I knew they instantly took a dislike to me. I don't know how or why they did, but teenagers can be funny like that.

Soon i started receiving texts from unknown numbers telling me they were going to hunt me down and kill me, vivid descriptions of my death soon started coming from various numbers into my phone: strangling me with a piece of rope from Gym class or throttling me with a heavy book. Either way i was scared. I told my mum about this and we went out and bought me a new phone with a new number and everything settled down for a while.

I was showing Olivia my new phone one day when Sam - the ring leader of the bullies - came over, towering above my slim five foot four frame, i was tiny. 

"Nice phone ya skank, be a shame if someone standed on it" she chortled, at her own joke.

"Please learn to speak properly before you try insult me again" i shot back, jamming my phone in my pocket and getting up to head off to Maths class

"Don't speak to me like that you little whore" she shouted, in my ear, blocking all other sound

All i felt then was her fist connect with the left side of my jaw, i felt the sweet taste of blood trickle into my mouth. She had gotten physical. I was terrified. I wouldn't last long in a fight.

"I don't want to fight you. So please just leave me be. I've never done anything to you." i said, choking back the tears that were springing to my eyes, my left side jaw throbbing with the pain. 

"Except being born" she spat, and kicked my in the side of my rib cage while i was on the ground. With that she strode away tugging a startled Olivia behind her. Leaving me gasping for air on the ground hand clutched around my shattered rib.

Talk about kicking someone while their down. Sam takes things to the next level.
