I heard my dad walk up the stairs to my room. He was probably going to make me buy him more beer for himself and my mom. "Here's thirty dollars, now go buy me as much beer as your fucking arms can carry. And be quick, I'll be waiting for you to join me." He said. My father was always abusing me. As he walked out, I thought about the whole I hold on to my life: for myself. I knew my mom didn't love my father but was always to scared to do anything about him. I would be to if I were her, but I'm not her. I'm me, Scarlet. Always have been always will be. But that doesn't stop me from cutting. I don't cut my wrists though, because they'd find out; I cut my legs. I don't feel bad about myself, surprisingly, I just get so stressed that I just have to do it. If I didn't have so much hope, I would've committed suicide a long time ago, before my dad started raping me. It got worse over time, he does it daily. And what does my mom do? Like I said before, nothing. But, I'm 20 years old, I'm smart. I've been waiting all month for my dad to send me off to buy beer for him. That way, instead of going to the store, I'd run away with the money. Thirty dollars would be enough to last me a few days. But I'd have to get as far away from here as possible. I used to be in softball, and I was the fastest on the team. I could run for miles without stopping. 


I grabbed a rucksack, and shoved all my clothes in there, along with the money. I walked downstairs, and out the door. I walked down our street calmly, so no one knew that something was up. As soon as I got to the end of the street, I ran as fast as I could, no destination in mind, just away from here.
