"What's gonna happen to me?" I ask my mom.
"Nothing, nothing at all. That was self-defense. I'm very proud of you sweetie." My mom says and she kisses my forehead.
"Okay." I say.
"Love you, now try to get some sleep." My mom says as she leads me upstairs to my room.
"Sleep? How am I supposed to sleep when I just killed my dad? That's like someone breaking my leg and saying 'oh, just walk it off'! Are you crazy?!" I say.
"Honey, I know you must be terrified-"
"I'm not. Why would I be? I killed the man who scared me. I have nothing to be afraid of now." I interrupt.
"I know, and I'm so proud of you. You're so brave and courageous, I would have never been able to do that. Now you, you are a real women. Not afraid of any man, not afraid of anything.A real women never cries, and you never did. Even as a baby, you never cried, ever. Even as a baby you were a real women. You've always been a women, but I've never seen it until now. The world needs more women like that. I know this seems like some stupid horror movie, but you need some sleep. It's 5:00 in the morning, you've been up all night, well, morning actually, but I can see how tired you are so you need to get some sleep. I know you just killed your own father, but, we all wanted him to be gone. He was cruel, he beat me, and you, and Elli, and Daisy, and I should have realized it long ago, but I was blind. I am so sorry Blake, I truly am. But now that your father is gone, we can have a real life, without being afraid that he might come back into our lives and ruin it again. I love you, Elli, and Daisy. I hope you know that." My mom says.
"I do, I do know that you love us, but how could you be so stupid?! Dad was terrible! I don't even like calling him 'dad'! Dad's are supposed to be loving, and caring, he was not loving and caring! He was the complete opposite! How couldn't you see that?! How didn't you realize that he was horrible to all of us?! You couldn't have been that stupid from the beginning could you?! I mean, sure, you loved him, but when he started beating you, why did you stay with him?! Or when he starting beating your own children, how didn't you get rid of him?! Why didn't you get rid of him?! You were so stupid! You were so selfish! You just kept in your mind that we were this perfect little happy family! Well, newsflash, we weren't! We never were! And I'm not even speaking for myself right now, I'm speaking for Elli and Daisy too! They feel the same way, go ask them if you don't believe me!" I yell.
"I believe you Blake. I believe you completely." My mom says calmly.
"Why are you so calm?!" I yell.
"Because I'm used to being yelled at." My mom says with tears in her eyes.
"What?! No way!" I yell as my mom begins to cry, "You cannot be pulling that cry-card on me! Mom! You knew what was happening when it was going on! You knew you were being beat! You knew I was being beat! You knew Elli and Daisy were being beat! And now that I've had enough of keeping my mouth closed, you start crying?! You did this for Elli, Daisy, and I all the time and we felt sorry for you! But you could have left any time you wanted, but you never did! You did this to yourself." I yell.
"I did. I did this to myself. Yell at me all you want, I need to hear it." My mom says and I sigh.
"You know what, that was all I had in me." I say and my mom wipes her tears away, "Mom, go to bed, we need sleep." I say and my mom nods then walks into her room. I sigh then walk into my room.
