I wrote this last year for an english assessment and I thought I might as well post it on here :3


1. Torn

I wake up and tip toe into the bathroom careful not to wake my mother. I flick the lights on and examine myself. My long brown hair is in a messy bun, my blue eyes are red from crying and I have bruises all over my body from my mum and Jake, not to mention the cuts on my wrists. I quickly apply makeup to my bruises and then I slip on some jeans, a long t-shirt and a hoodie. I quickly go into my 4 year old brother Toby’s room. “Toby, time to wake up.”


“Yeah now it’s time to get up.”

      After we have breakfast I hear my mum and she’s still drunk.

“CHRISTINE! I need your help and if you're not here in five seconds, then you will get more than just a bruise!”

Ignoring my mother who abuses me daily, I grab my keys, phone and school books. Hand in hand I walk with my brother to his kindergarten.  

"Now have a good day.” I say to him. He gives me a tight hug then runs to his friends. Toby is the only thing that gets me through the day, I think as I walk away.

     As soon as I walk into school THEY are waiting for me, the ones that make my life more miserable than it already is.

“Well, well, well look who has decided to turn up to school!” His voice sends me into a deep rage.  

“Jake! I need to go to class.” As I push through him and his friends he grabs my arm.    

“What did you just say?” practically spitting the words out.             

“Make her pay!” I hear someone yell, I knew what was going to happen so I close my eyes and brace myself.

      Ding, Ding, Ding. I give out a sigh of relief.

“You’re lucky for now but at lunch you're gonna wish you were never born!” After he says that he spits in my hair and his mates slap me in the face. I quickly gather my things and I wonder what I ever did to them? The rest of the day was a blur. Thankfully, except for lunch when Jake almost broke my arm.


     “Toby time to get u-” when I go to wake him he’s not there, so I walk to the bathroom to find his not there either, as I look for him I notice mum isn't home.

“Good!” I murmur. Then I hear mum’s keys open the door. I grab my things and bolt out the back door, when I get to the drive way I see my brother lifeless. Blood is quickly pooling around him. My eyes start to well up when I see a baseball bat with splats of blood no it. Reality hits me when I realise I haven't been able to protect my brother.

     To make thing worse Jake and his friends are walking towards me. I start to run past them so they wouldn't see Toby.

“She’s mine!” I hear Jake yell as he chases after me. I run to the beach and stop at the edge of a cliff. I close my eyes as I prepare to jump.

“STOP!!” Jake yells as he grabs my arm. 

“You forced me to do this! What have I done to make you hate me?” I scream at him.     

“I don’t hate you I...I...I love you!” I’m shocked I lose my footing and fall down the cliff.    

“NOOOO!” I hear Jake yell as he jumps to save me but he is falling down the cliff too. All I can think is that I will be with my brother forever. Now I will finally be able to be at peace.
