2. Chapter 1: The First Day

Violet's POV:

I woke up to an angry fist pounding on my locked door. As I tried to lift myself from my ratted old mattress pain flooded through my body and i released a distressed groan. " Get up you lazy bitch and come make me breakfast" my stepfather shouted angrily through the door. I gave a mumbled reply and i tried to lift my battered body from the mildew smelling mattress.

I ignored the pain and lifted the thin sheet off my bruised legs and slowly got up. Feeling dizzy I leaned against the wall for a few moments closing my eyes willing the feeling to go away. When I was feeling better I forced my legs to walk to my small dresser and get cloths for the day. I walked to the door and quickly undid the lock.

I peeked out in the hallway only to find it empty. Silently scurrying to the bathroom that was across from my closet sized room, I closed and locked the door and turned on the shower, quickly stripping from my bloodied cloths. I tossed them into the hamper and stepped into the shower.

Quickly as I could I finished my shower routine and turned off the water. I grabbed a towel a wrapped it around myself not yet looking in the mirror. I dried myself off and put on the big, grey t - shirt that was scattered with holes and A pair of old jeans that I had grabbed. I turned toward the mirror to assess the damage that was done to me the night before.

I took in my large violet eyes that were currently sporting a nice black eye, my small nose which I could tell was most likely broken, my eyes trailed to my full lips that were currently cracked and dry with a deep looking cut on my lower lip, my face had the shape of a hand right across my cheek and my almost to thin arms were covered in bruises. I sighed but grabbed a brush and started to work through the tangles in my long silver hair.

After I finished brushing the matts out of my hair I pulled it up into a high pony and then walked downstairs to face the monster that I call "dad". I quickly walked pass the living room where I could here the TV playing the news and walked into the kitchen to make breakfast.

I put the eggs, toast and bacon that I had just finished making onto a plate and poured a cup of coffee. I put everything onto the table just as the large, beer gutted man walked into the kitchen. I kept my head down as he started eating. He waved his hand in a signal for me to go, "hmm he's in a good mood", I thought. I hastily walked up the stairs and walked into my room to get my shoes and backpack.

I let out and annoyed sigh as today was the first day of "hell" uh excuse me "school". I grabbed an oversized hoodie and pulled it over my head pulling up the hood, grabbing my backpack and putting on my old, small converse. I rushed out of the house and started the almost two mile long walk to the place where the bullying and torture continued.
