I felt like my life could end right then and there. I sat in the corner of my room trying to hide my tears from my mum and stepdad who we're screaming at each other in front of me and then something I wished I didn't see happen.
She layed on the floor in front of me lifeless. I can't believe what just happened. The last thing I remember was watching my mum and stepdad, James screaming at each other over James wanting to send me to boarding school on the other side of the world when suddenly James stopped and as he looked at the floor he put his hands in his pockets. My mum turned to me with a guilty and apologetic look on her face wen suddenly James pulled his pocket knife out of his pocket and put it to my mums neck yelling words that sounded like "close your eyes sweetheart your filthy mum deserves this" in a cocky tone of voice. I did as I said because I knew that if I disobeyed he'd bash me up again.
I heard my mum scream and my heart sank to the floor, I couldn't bare to open my eyes. Everything was silent except for James' footsteps walking along the timber floor and out the door mumbling words to himself. I sat in the position I had been in for what felt like forever frozen but when I heard my bedroom door slam it made me jump and open my eyes. The sight was painful, my precious mother lay on the hard floor, her cold body not moving an inch. I couldn't move. I didn't understand why everything good in my life disappears. I crouched down next to her lifeless body and whispered in her ear over my shock and tears and I stroked her gorgeous light brown hair "it's not you're fault mum and I don't want you to feel quilty, u tried but you've just been strong for too long and I am proud, I love u mum and I always will, I promise"
