Lexi's POV

After I asked my parents about being adopted my life here became a living hell.

I'm never allowed to leave the house anymore and my parents yell at me a lot.

"Mum? Dad?" I called. I decided to finally ask them.

"What do you want?" Dad shouted.

"Well uh..why am I not allowed to go out anymore?" I asked.

"Because we said so!" Mum yelled.


"No buts! Don't talk back to me!" She screamed.

"I don't have to listen to you! I'm a fucking adult and you're not even my parents!" I shouted.

My mum glared at me. "Our house, our rules. If you aren't going to follow them, take your stuff and leave"

I didn't expect that response. "What?"

"You heard me. Not so rebellious now, huh?" She smirked.

"You know what? Sure! I'll leave! I'll probably have a better life without you!" I screamed and ran upstairs.

I started packing my suitcase. I cant stand to be in the same house as them anymore. I looked as my thigh and sighed at the bruise from where they beat me yesterday when they were drunk.

After packing 2 suitcases and grabbing Smokey I went downstairs.

"And just where do you think you're going?" dad asked.

"Away from you guys" I replied.

"WHERE ARE YOU GOING?!" He screamed.

"None of your damn business" I spat and went outside, slamming the door behind me.

I called a taxi and drove to Nova's.

I didn't bother knocking, I just went inside. Her parents weren't home, so I went straight up to her room.

"Lexi? What're you doing here?" Nova asked.

"Well um, after I found out I'm adopted my parents have been really bad to me so I was hoping I could stay with you?" I explained.

"You're adopted?" She asked.

I nodded and she have me a hug.

"Of course you can stay" she told me.

I went to the guest room and put my suitcases on the floor and placed Smokey on the bed.

"Lexi? Wanna go to the club tonight?" Nova asked.

"Sure" I replied and she smiled.


I've been living at Nova's for a week now and it's much better than at home.

I was watching TV when the door opened. I turned around and saw my "parents". Shit.

"You young lady, are coming with us" my dad said. He was pissed.

My mum went into the guest room and came back with all my stuff, then my dad picked me up and carried my into their car. He literally threw me into the car.

At home they dragged me into my room threw my suitcases in and gave me Smokey. Then they locked, yes locked, me into my room. What the hell?!

I noticed there was a fridge in my room now, an it was filled with food and water. So now I'm living in my room.

Crying, I walked to my desk and took a blade out of the drawer. I made a small cut on my wrist.
