1. What Have I Done?

Graces p.o.v.

 

I wince when I hear the door slam, he was home and sounded drunk and pissed...like usual. I walked out of our 3 year old daughter’s room. I don't know what’s wrong with him but he's been aggressive lately and he's hit me once or twice. I was afraid that he would hurt Darcy , our daughter. "I just put Darcy to sleep so can you please not be so loud?" I whisper glaring at him "I'll do what ever the fuck I want!" He yelled "Would you just shut up?" I yell back. His face darkens and he takes a step towards me. "What did you say?" He growls grabbing my arm "Don't touch me" I scream trying to pull my arm away. He chuckles and raises his hand slapping me across the face. "No Daddy!" Darcy screams from behind me, tears running down her face. He lets me go his face softening "I-i.." He stutters reaching towards her. She screams again and hugs my leg, sobbing "Mummy don't let him hurt me!" She sobs. I pick her up tears running down my own face, my cheek red "Are you happy?" I ask him, my voice cracking as I hug her tightly.

I felt a lump forming in my throat, and I quickly ran a hand through my hair. Realization really hit me, I mean how could it not? I saw my three year old daughter running away from me-actually scared I would hit her. If that isn't enough to make anyone feel like shit, then I don't know what it. "I-Im so sorry.." I whispered while shaking my head sadly; but even though I knew that couldn't make up for what I've done. I'm a monster.

I picked up Darcy and started walking to her room "if your plan was to make Darcy scared of you... You've succeeded..." I whispered while walking in Darcy's room. I lay Darcy in her bed and start combing her hair.

"I-I didn't mean to, I- just.." I trailed off whispered to myself, considering the fact that you had taken Darcy into her room. I had no excuses for what I have been doing lately- and I feel horrible.


Graces p.o.v.


I finished tucking in Darcy and she soon fell asleep. I kissed her on the head and walked out of her room slowly and quietly. I soon remembered you were still out there. I walk by quickly and go upstairs to our shared room, hoping you didn't see me


Harry's p.o.v. 


I had absolutely no idea what to do. I wanted to follow her upstairs, and beg for forgiveness; but I know she's scared of me-and that made me feel guilty as well. But if I just stood here to let things cool off, wouldn't that make me look bad? Like I didn't care-which I did a lot? I decided to go with my first instinct and walked up the stairs.

I looked in the mirror at my red cheek. I softly touched it and jumped at the pain that shot through it. This is so far the worst..after i got out of my deep thoughts, I started hearing footsteps coming upstairs. Oh god.. I didn't know what to do, what if he hurts me again?


Harry's p.o.v.

 

She had closed the door behind her, and I knocked softly- even though this was my room too and I could walk right in if I wanted to. I completely understood if she didn't want to talk to me; I honestly wouldn't want to talk to me either. I know what I had been doing lately is unforgivable, and I had no idea how I was going to clean up this huge mess I made.

I looked at the door. Should I let him in or not? He must've calmed down because if he was still mad he would've either bursted in here or knock the door down. I took a deep breath. "C-come in.." I said quietly.

 

Harry's p.o.v.


I opened the door slowly and walked in the room. "Hi." I said shakily and sat on the edge of the bed. It was almost painful to see the panic in her eyes when I walked in the room. Just the way she cringed when I walked by, made the lump in my throat form again. I truly had realized how horrible I've been the past month or two. Why couldn't I see before? My own daughter, and the love of my life Grace, were terrified of me!

"H-Hi..." I stuttered. This felt like I was in a scary movie or in a nightmare..like he's going to strike any moment now... I took a baby step back hoping he didn't notice. I still couldn't believe that he turned like this.. He used to be so sweet,loving,funny, and cute.. Now he's like the big scary monster that I used to think hid under my bed or in my closet at night.. He was a completely different person... A completely different person I no longer knew...


Harry's p.o.v.


I bit my lip and looked down at my hands. I couldn't bear to look up and see the expression on her face. She looked terrified, disappointed, hurt, she looked like she was about to burst out in tears- and if I'm being completely honest, I was too. I felt so stuck, like I couldn't be forgiven. I don't even think I can forgive myself. Im truly a monster.

I rubbed my cheek and looked down. I couldn't stand this.. I just wanted to jump in his arms and hug him and have everything go back to the way it was before but at the same time I wanted to run away...
