3. Chapter Three - What Happens At One AM...

I stand up, wincing. I tried to walk towards my wardrobe, but my legs give out and I fall towards the floor. I grab the edge of my desk, knocking things off. They smashed on my floor and I heard Dad get up. Crap, crap, crap.  I'm in trouble. I go to get up, but just stay on the floor. There is no point. My door swings open and Dad walks in.

"What the hell are you doing?" He screams.

"Nothing. I-I-I'm sorry."

He comes over and lifts me up by the wrist. I feel it snap. As I scream out, he slaps me across the face.

"Everything I do to you, you deserve this. All of it. Remember that, you bitch." He throws me on the floor and leaves me. I pull my arm to my chest and cry. That's it I have to leave.

I pull a rucksack out of my wardrobe and stuff in clothes with my good hand. I put in my charger and do up the bag. I pick up my headphones. I make a makeshift sling out of a scarf. As I sneak out of my room and go down the stairs, I come face to face with Dad holding a knife. I panic. What am I going to do?

Sometimes you have to kind of die inside in order to rise from your own ashes and believe in yourself and love yourself to become a new person. - Gerard Way

I turned and tried to run back to my room, but he grabbed the handle of my bag and stopped me moving. 

"Where the fuck do you think you're going?"

"Nowhere.  I- Nowhere. I swear."

"I think you're lying to me."

"I'm not! I promise."

He drags me up the stairs by my bag. I cry out as my arm hits the stairs. He slaps me. He pushes me onto my bed and sits on top of me, holding the knife across my throat.

"Tell me why I shouldn't kill you right now." I shut my eyes, trying to push back tears. Dad just laughs. 

"You're sick!" I cry. He brings the knife down across my arm. I scream.

"The more noise you make, the worse it will be." I nod, tears streaming freely. 

I felt the knife press into my arm and turn in different directions. I pull my free hand across my mouth to stop myself making a noise. I squeezed my eyes shut and began to sing My Chemical Romance.

Now I know
That I can't make you stay
But where's your heart?
But where's your heart?
But where's your

And I know
There's nothing I can say
To change that part
To change that part
To change

So many
Bright lights that cast a shadow
But can I speak?
Well, is it hard understanding

I'm incomplete?
A life that's so demanding
I get so weak
A love that's so demanding
I can't speak

I am not afraid to keep on living
I am not afraid to walk this world alone
Honey, if you stay
I'll be forgiven
Nothing you can say can stop me going home

Can you see
My eyes are shining bright?
'Cause I'm out here
On the other side

Of a jet black
Hotel mirror
And I'm so weak
Is it hard understanding

I'm incomplete?
A love that's so demanding
I get weak

I am not afraid to keep on living
I am not afraid to walk this world alone
Honey, if you stay
I'll be forgiven
Nothing you can say can stop me going home

I am not afraid to keep on living
I am not afraid to walk this world alone
Honey, if you stay
I'll be forgiven
Nothing you can say can stop me going home

These bright lights have always blinded me
These bright lights have always blinded me
I say

I see you lying next to me
With words I thought I'd never speak
Awake and unafraid
Asleep or dead

'Cause I see you lying next to me
With words I thought I'd never speak
Awake and unafraid
Asleep or dead

'Cause I see you lying next to me
With words I thought I'd never speak
Awake and unafraid
Asleep or dead

'Cause I see you lying next to me
With words I thought I'd never speak
Awake and unafraid
Asleep or dead

I am not afraid to keep on living
I am not afraid to walk this world alone
Honey, if you stay
I'll be forgiven
Nothing you can say can stop me going home

I am not afraid to keep on living
I am not afraid to walk this world alone
Honey, if you stay
I'll be forgiven
Nothing you can say can stop me going home

I am not afraid to keep on living
I am not afraid to walk this world alone
Honey, if you stay
I'll be forgiven
Nothing you can say can stop me going home

 

Eventually, I felt him get off me and I cried for a while. When he began to snore, I got up, picked up my bag and left the house...
