We have all got secrets

Rebecca has been an orphan her entire life. When she reaches the age of 18, she has to leave the orphanage as she has become too old to stay. After living on the street for a few years, Rebecca finally gathers up the courage to look through her personal file in hope of finding her birth parents. Isn’t that what every orphan wants? At least that’s what Rebecca wants.

Family life isn't as easy as Rebecca originally thought. Her parents neglecting her, secrets, love and horrible things happen along the way to success.

9. Aiden

"Well, well, well. Who do we have here?"

My blood run cold.

Oh my gosh.

I'm so scared.

I don’t turn around so he comes up behind me and puts his arms around my waist. He is now fully pressed up against my backside. He releases my hair from my bun and run his fingers through my short hair. Under any other circumstances this would be cute and romantic but right now it's simply disgusting. I try to get out of his arms but instead he turns me around and slaps me hard across my cheek. I yelp and my hands fly to my cheek.

"Who do you think you are? You are nothing but a nobody!" Aiden screams in my face. Tears build up in my eyes but I don’t let them fall. That's what he wants, and I can't give him that satisfaction.

Aiden grabs me by my hair and almost drags me deeper into the house. I don't scream out. I can't get myself to do it.

I’m thrown into what looks like a cell, and I land on the hard linoleum floor with a loud thump. I lay there in silence as Aiden shuts and locks the door, shouting curses at me as he does. 

"Stay here, you whore!" He shouts at me before he walks away. Like I can go anywhere, dickhead! I don't shout it after him, but I do wish I have the courage to do it.

"Rebecca?" Says a small and weak voice from the afar corner. I sit up and look towards the sound.

"Selena?" I say in a voice just above a whisper. I get off of the floor and walk towards her. Now that I'm closer to her, I can see her injuries better. "Oh my god. What has he done to you?" I ask as I look over her arms and legs. She’s wearing a pair of short shorts and a tank top. Her arms have some open and still bleeding cuts and so has her legs. She’s a mess and she hasn't even been here that long.

"Why did you come here Becca?” Are you being serious right now?

"What am I doing here? What are you doing here? How could you be so stupid? I know Aiden and he's not a good person!" I whisper-yell. I still can't believe she could be so stupid! I look into her tear-filled eyes and hold her shaking body tightly into my own. I pull away from the hug and wipe her tears away with my thumbs.

"I-I j-just thought that if he had me, h-he would leave you a-alone."

"That was extremely stupid Selena! Now the whole world knows there's something going on!" I say. Selena’s about to say something when we hear footsteps approaching. My eyes widen and I jump away from Selena and closer to the door. I sit down and stare into the grey concrete wall. This room is actually nice compared to the rest of the house. I hear the sound of keys hitting each other and the door opening. My stomach twists and turns in anxiety. 

"I see we have the famous Gomez-twins together again." Oh, god no. No, please god, tell me it's not true!

I turn around, and there she is.

The one person I actually thought was my friend.


My blood is boiling as my eyes fill up with angry tears.

What a lying bitch. 

"You are such a liar!" I get off of the floor and scream in her face. She laughs. Laughs! I could punch her in the pretty little face of hers.

"You were so naive it's not even funny Rebecca. I only wanted to be friends with you so I could get to your sister," she says in a ‘duh’ voice like it’s the most obvious thing in the world. What a boost to my self-confidence. I guess Selena was right after all. 

"You disgust me!" I spit at her.

"Yeah, yeah, I'm so bad," she says rolling her eyes and goes around me. She takes my arms roughly into her hands and tie them together with some rope she had with her. I don't fight against her because what can I do? She's obviously as sick as Aiden.

"Don't say that about my boyfriend and I!" She screams at me and throws me down on the hard floor and begins tying my legs together aggressively. I must have said it out loud.

"Boyfriend?" Selena and I exclaim in unison. Vanessa just slaps me hard across the cheek before walking out.

"What's up with the slapping today?" I ask nobody in particular and snakes myself closer to Selena.

"Your cheek is purple!" Selena gasps and looks at me with widen eyes.

"It's nothing, really." It’s really not.

"I'm so sorry," Selena says after a little silence. I look at her puzzled. "I'm sorry I got us into this mess. I should have just stayed out of your business. It's just, you're my twin sister. Even though you're technically my older sister, I'm still protective over you. Also, now that I know what you have been going through for so long I just- I just c-can’t help but be o-over-protective," she says sobbing a little in the end.

"It's okay Selena. Why did you answer my phone this morning?" I ask the one question that's been nagging me for the past hours. Selena takes a deep breath.

"I-I don't know. I-"

"Shut up!" We both freeze.

Oh my gosh.

I look up at Aiden’s angry face. 

"Haven't I told you to keep quiet?" Aiden yells in Selena's face. 

"No," Selena says in a very quiet voice. Wrong move Selena.

"Oh yeah, you're the little sluts twin sister- the famous one. Oh, this is going to be fun," Aiden says and laughs some weird, scary, deep laughter while rolling up the sleeves of his shirt. Freak. I can’t help but snort. Aiden looks at me with evil eyes. 

"Do you have something to say, slut?" He sneers. I quickly shake my head, but it’s not enough. 

"Talk when I ask you something!" He yells at me. 

"Yes, I'm sorry!" I whimper under his hard, intense gaze. He hits me without any particular reason. I don't say anything. I've been through so much that a slap is nothing. It's nothing to cry about, but I can't tell Selena that. The poor girl has no idea what has been going on in my mess of a life. 

"Don't talk to me!" He continues yelling. Dude, make up your damn mind! 

"What did you say?" He asks in a dangerous low voice. I said it out loud again, didn't I?

"Nothing Aiden. I said nothing!" I say in a low monotone. 

“Whore,” slap, “Worthless,” kick, “Pathetic,” slap, “Slut,” kick, “Bitch,” kick.

I’m laying on my side on the floor, while Aiden hits me and kicks me. Selena’s yelling, but Aiden does nothing else but shout at her to shut up.

Good. She doesn't deserve any of this.

A single tear runs slowly down my right cheek as I absorb the pain in my stomach. I'm going to throw up if he doesn't stop. 

Stupid pain! Stupid Aiden! Stupid life! Stupid everything! I yell to myself in my head. 

Aiden just kicks harder and laughs louder when he notices the tear on my cheek.

"Serves you right, bitch!" He laughs at me. I can’t agree more. As bad as it sounds I’m not a good person. 

* * *

After Aiden left I threw up in the corner of the room. He had kicked me several more time in my stomach and I’m feeling nauseated.

I get up on my knees and crawl the best I can over to Selena in the other corner. When I finally reaches her I see her shaking figure.

"I'm really sorry you had to wideness that," I whisper, afraid that Aiden would come again.

"Has he done that to you many time?" Selena asks in a shaky voice. I hesitate but nod, looking down in my lap. I'm ashamed to admit that he has hit and kicked me so many times that I've lost counting. I'm ashamed because he has done worst things to me in the past, but I'm not talking about that anymore. Nobody - and I mean nobody - knows anything about what has been going on between Aiden and I apart from Aiden and I.

"Oh Becca!" Selena says as she discovers the tear slowly trailing down my cheek. She hugs me the best she can. I wrap my arms around her and sob into her shoulder. Selena’s still tied, but I’m not. Aiden untied me before he started beating me. I don't know why but I'm not complaining.

"It's okay, you're going to be okay," Selena tries to comfort me. It’s not working though.

I'm not okay, and I probably never will be.
