Me Against the World

Cassie Smith is like every other girl, well apart from the fact that she's Liam Payne's Cousin. Her Mother is from Liam's dad's side of the family. She has plenty of friends in school and she is the school 'Popular' girl but coming home and hearing her mother calling her names and hitting her everyday is getting too much for her, her brother is both a dick to her and someone she has to protect from her mother and she constantly is left to watch her 4 year old sister while her mother goes and gets drunk everyday. What happens when it all becomes too much, she starts cutting, what happens when she starts cutting, Liam and his friends find out, When One Direction find out about her what happens??
Enough Is Enough
*Part One Of 'Me Against The World*


5. For all it's worth

There was nothing,
It was dark,
I watched as my world collapsed around me,
A silent brother brought to life by an Idol,
A death defied by an Angel,
A life defied by a Demon.


Cassie's POV-
It’s been three months since Arietta showed up at our house, I’ve since found out that Aunty May (Arietta’s Mum) had a run in with drugs and her and Uncle Paul have broken up so I am stuck to wonder what I am going to do with her, I guess I could take her in as my own, but I’m going to have to get a job. I’m a pretty good student so I guess I could get some good references.  I explained what happened to the teachers and they want me to get mum to take care of her but I had to explain to them that I can’t but I can’t tell them the truth. Uncle Paul seems to have disappeared and I have no idea where to find him, he isn’t around much and I don’t know where he works which makes him impossible to find. I guess I’m going Job-searching tonight with two young children unless Michael (My brother) can take care of them. I’m lucky it’s the holidays, because it makes it easier to find a job, but it’s sad that it ends in two days. I finish grade 10 this year so I can’t get a full time job anytime soon. Aunty Tell has told me that she wants me to come over her house tomorrow so I have no idea what that’s about, I wonder whether I should bring Arietta and Lia but I know Michael would want to come so I guess I’ll bring him.

I get home to find the house a mess and mum passed out on the floor, she’s a mess but I dare not disturb her, she might lash out at me. I slowly jog down the hall and enter Michael’s room, bending over and jumping into his cupboard that’s suck to the floor, I open the small door that leads to Arietta’s room, which used to be our safe room, the place where we all hid from mum. I quickly slide out and find Michael asleep and the girls sharing the small cot in the room. I tap Michael on the shoulder and he stirs and slowly his eyes open “We are going to see Aunty Tell tomorrow.”  He quickly shoots out of the chair, hitting his head on the shelf that sits above the chair “Ouch!” “Shhhhh!” I whisper, putting my finger to my lips “You’ll wake them!” immediately Arietta starts crying “Looks like you already have.” I state, walking over to the two girls crying and kicking around. Slowly I pick up Arietta, cradling her in my arms “Could you please get Lia!” I call to Michael who has adopted the job of seeing how close he can get to his brain by putting his finger up his nose “Be careful, you might pull your brain out your nose!”
