My Sweet Hyacinth
My Sweet Hyacinth This is the story of Sandra Lei's son and Mark Lee's daughter in Young and Beautiful. The start of the new generation of my first creation. It's about their children this time. She, a transferee from London but a native Brent girl from a powerful family. He, a Top A scholar Math Wizard student from a middle class family. Who have accidentally bumped into each other in front of their university. Hyacinth Lee who was struggling with her new environment in their school needs a Math Tutor and Melvin Ross who was an independent part time private tutor needs some money for his schooling overseas. Would she accept him, the gorgeous guy who scolded and called her a bully and a princess in her first day at the University or would he decline the offer to teach this young lady who gave him a headache on a daily basis? Well, this gorgeous genius geek was guarded by the most beautiful and popular belle in their prestigious school who happened to be her mortal enemy and the fee for being her private teacher was splendid. Would they take this once in a lifetime chance to make the bitch jealous and to accept a thousand dollar for a whole day tutor every weekend? *************** Chapter One ：Chapter 1 Start of Spring "What is the antiderivative of X to the third evaluated from two to four chuckling integrate X cubed? Let's review some basics if you want to find the antiderivative of X to the N, it's going to be X to the N plus 1 divided by N plus 1" Melvin clearly explained a calculus problem to his classmate, Crystal one lazy afternoon in their villa. But the young lady was just beaming while watching the rims of the lips of her gorgeous tutor sitting opposite to her as he talked. "Sigh!" Crystal took a deep breath of adulation while she propped her face with her left hand. When Melvin heard her sigh, he casually took a glimpse of her then continued explaining. "So, the antiderivative of X squared is X cubed divided by 3 the antiderivative of X to the 4th is X to the 5th divided by 5 and 4 X to the 7th is X to the 8th." Upon seeing that his student was not focusing, he tapped the desk with a pencil to grab her attention. When Crystal flickered her eyes on him, he sat straight and raised his eyebrows. "Were you even listening to what I said?" Melvin sternly asked. "I'm more interested in calculating your perfect facial feature than burying my mind with these suicidal notes!" Crystal uttered with a gist of flattery as she also sat straight. "Crystal, your parents pay me to teach you calculus so you can prepare for your lesson this coming semester. I don't want to waste their hard-earned money!" he deliberately stated acting like a strict teacher to her. "We've been studying for almost two hours now. Let's take a break for a while. How about I make you a glass of fresh juice and a sandwich?" She was about to get up when Melvin's firm voice left her bottom hung in the air. "Not unless you can explain to me our previous lesson then I will give yo
Elise And The Scorpion King
Elise And The Scorpion King (Magical Journey Series Book 1) Elise has never thought she could be someone special until she is warped into the past—to the Land of Magic—in Ancient Egypt. She finds herself including her brother and a couple of friends in the middle of the battle, between the Scorpion King and the Cobra King. She needs to choose to forge an alliance with to be able to survive in this ancient time and place and figure out how they can go back to their present time and be reunited with their parents. *************** Chapter One ：Chapter 1 Chapter 1: The Scorpion King Around 3100 BC, Ta Shemau, Ancient Egypt. Inside his private residence, King Hor-Aha was seated on his favorite majestic chair, his throne, in the middle of the night. His throne was made of the sturdiest wood in the kingdom of Ta Shemau, meaning “the land of reeds” or better known as Upper Egypt, that his father’s loyal servant could ever find. The wood was from a Sycamore tree, and the distinctive design of sphinx and other symbols especially the family sign or totem, a scorpion, were carved in the back and sides of the chair including its arms, which looked like the claws of the sphinx. Molten gold was embedded as well into the rest of the surfaces of the chair, making it look gleaming under the lit torches, which were mounted on the palace walls. King Hor-Aha’s father passed on the White Crown to him a long time ago, when he was barely fifteen. The royal physician could not tell what kind of disease his father acquired after fighting against the Nubians at the time. He suffered from high fever in the afternoon until late at night and was coughing and spurting blood out of his mouth. King Hor-Aha winced even though he realized it had been ages ago since his royal family and allies fought against them. It still hurt him to lose his father. One day, he swore on his father’s mummified remains, that he would defeat the ruler of Te-Mehu—the “land of papyrus” or better known as Lower Egypt. Because of it, the successor could not sleep that night and so he summoned his high priest the hem netjer and his high priestess the hemet netjer while his two bodyguards stood erectly in the background with a spear in their hands. The high priestess was seated on a nearby chair, adjacent to the king while the high priest stood in a relaxed manner next to the high priestess. They looked at the king briefly, who always wore golden bracelets and anklets. His clothes were made from the highest quality of cloth, a dark colored toga and matched it with a golden belt. On the other hand, his priest and priestess wore nothing but scanty linen cloths, with ornaments made of gold and other metallic looking pieces of jewelries, around their private parts and a headdress on their heads. They both had bald heads and without eyebrows. Like the king, they too had golden earrings, bracelets and anklets that adorned their bodies. They all watched a shemat, one of the best of the m
The Author is...
The Author is... A guy who had left nothing but puzzles to solve and a never lasting mourn for his family and his friend. While taking care of his nephew with two clones on his side. He found out something that makes him think and wonder of the treasures of his family. While solving the cases of the death of the girl he loved, his family and his friends... he also solve the mystery of the wanders of the treasures and hidden antiques of his parents. *************** Chapter One ：Chapter 1 Her name is... (Part1) It’s been one year since my twin brother died. I transferred to his university because he loved it there. As a transfer student, I'll observe, I'll look around. I sat down under a guava tree near on the only clean stone bench I found. Some students waved as if they knew me. I just smiled. On the left side of the bench there's an Acacia tree, I smiled because I supposed that’s the location my brother must have sat because he loves sitting on the floor under a tree. It would have been his favorite spot. A simple beautiful girl caught my attention. I can tell she's one of the guys yet she's elegantly pretty in every way you looked at her. The girl who caught my attention was the one who's on everyone's conversation later that day as I left my class. I heard some of my fellow classmates talking, "Did you see her? She’s flinging and flirting another campus guy again..." "Yes, I saw her, she's with the most popular guy at the gym yesterday, and then, I saw her earlier at the corridor with him." As I walked behind them, I could hear every details of their conversation. I shook my head in disbelief and thought, ‘They talk too loud.’ I stopped when I saw her at the corridor. She's fantastic on how the way she walks and yet the conversations continues. Three girls were talking who's standing near the hallway. "Wow! She's really flirting," said one of them. Everyone had their opinion afterwards. "So... That means..." I stopped. I started walking towards my car. As I start my car, I can't help but to think what I’ve heard. I parked my car somewhere at some fast-food chain. I can't think properly. I start my car once again, drive into the drive-thru window orders some food there and I decided to go home. The next morning, I went to the university earlier than the start of my class and sit where I sat down yesterday. I heard some fellow students talking and laughing under the Acacia tree. "She has that guts because that was all she have." says one of the girls with sarcasm tone. Then they all them laugh and suddenly, they began to keep quiet. "Hi!" greet one of the boys. I saw the girl again. She smiled at them genuinely. My eyes begun to open wider, "How can they say something ridiculous and greet her as if she's one of their friends?" I ask myself. Therefore, I decided to observe that girl more so I will know what the problem was, why she was always their topic on their conversation. Day by day, all I ...
Fire Bolt Dragons. Right. Teenage girls don’t believe in fairy tales, and sixteen-year old Elena Watkins was no different. Until the night a fairy tale killed her father. Now Elena’s in a new world, and a new school. The cutest guy around may be an evil dragon, a Prince wants Elena’s heart, and a long dead sorcerer may be waking up to kill her. Oh. And the only way Elena’s going to graduate is on the back of a dragon of her own. Teenage girls don’t believe in fairy tales. Now it’s time for Elena to believe – in herself. *************** Chapter One ：Chapter 1 Chapter One A GIRL SINGING HER heart out about a miracle boomed inside my ear. A miracle would get me what I needed: a chance at a semi-normal life. The bedroom door hitting the wall, expelled the thought from my mind. With his hand tangled up in his copper hair, and with huge brown eyes, Dad’s figure filled the entire doorway. “Pack your bags.” He had that set to his jaw, the one that meant there was no way out of this. He bolted out of the room just as suddenly as he had appeared. I ground my teeth hard. A sharp pain behind my eyes, I guessed from the lack of sleep, grew stronger—every fiber of my being wanted to explode. Ever since I could remember my name, Dad and I had been on the run. From what? Beats me. For the past two weeks, I’d been pacing through the house, struggling to fall asleep at night, waiting for this day. For the love of blueberries, no sixteen-year-old should live this way! I climbed off my bed, and the first step I took left my toe tangled in the wide leg of my jeans. I tried to regain my balance as the closet inched closer, but with wildly flailing arms, I came crashing down. The thud reverberated across the wooden floor, and it sounded as if I’d broken something. Dad darted back into my room. “Are you okay?” He lifted me back onto my feet as if I weighed nothing. Tears lurked in the corners of my eyes as I stared up at him. “Don’t give me that look, Elena. Please, we need to hurry.” He pulled my suitcase from the top shelf and chucked it haphazardly onto my bed. “We need to go. Now.” “Dad...” He started to grab my clothes from the shelf and tossed them messily inside my small suitcase. Then he paused, sighed, and looked up with soft eyes. He stroked the side of my cheek. “This...” He looked past me. “...wasn’t the right place, Bear. Please, you’ve got to trust me.” He reached back to pull everything off my shelf while I curled my hands into balls of fury. My heart pounded fast as those two words bounced inside my skull. “Trust you?” “Elena, we don’t have much time,” he yelled. “Pack your bags! You can ask questions later.” He left, and the hollow thump from his stomping footsteps rang loudly as he made his way into the hall. Ask questions? Yeah right! I’ll only get answers that don’t reveal why we are on the run for the gazillionth time. “Trust me” and “I’ll tell you when the time is right” were the only two answers Dad gave. Guess the

Joe replied to the pretty faced hostess. The girl wasn’t surprised to hear the second order of the customer for they are well briefed on this service job they have applied for. “Right away, sir”. She answered politely and gracefully left to get the ordered drinks. This isn’t a usual bar, this is a music box with privacy for extra service. “I will take the extra service while I am having my first bottle of beer. I had a bad day and I need to blow some steam. Come over here and get on your knees.” Ordered Joe as soon as the service girl came back with the tray of cut fruits, fish & crackers and 3 bottles of beer in a bucket. “Yes, sir!” Placing a cushion under her knees, the girl lowered herself right in front of her client’s widespread legs. She took out Joe’s still limp cock out of his boxers and started licking it like a lollipop. She was surprised when she felt something strange in her tongue as she was licking him. Joe smiled proudly and said, “yes, honey, I have a reverse Prince Albert piercing”. She has never had such a client as she had just started a few weeks on this job after a month of training working on the sides and listening to elders sisters' advice from experiences. She took his balls in her hand and started swirling her thumb around the base of his slowly erecting shaft while she focused on licking the thick mushroom head. In just a few minutes Joe was as hard as a rod and she took as much as she could in her mouth noticing it growing bigger by the seconds. “Just like that...I want it slow….” Joe wants to enjoy this euphoric bliss as much as he can. She swirls her tongue around the head and flicks his slit to taste the beads of precum coming one after another. Flattening her tongue she caresses the back of Joe’s cock head and goes down twirling her tongue around his cock licking until she reaches his balls and suck on them one after the other. Joe felt all his stress of the day leaves his tired body and mind as he floats in the ecstasy of her service. He felt like he was soon to burst out so he asked the girl to sit on his lap, just his cock rubbing against her still cloth cladded pussy. She obediently obliged, honestly, because she felt her legs are starting to cramp kneeling for quite a while. He started to fondle her breast as she started to take off her easy access wo...
Darkbeam Part Three
Darkbeam Part Three Blake Leaf is fighting against the Dent. He truly believes that the Dent is an enslavement spell. One where he would loose himself and that the bond is not natural. He takes extreme measures with the help of Sam and Dimitri, a very dark sorcerer, that might cost him his life, if he caves. Darkbeam is the Rubicon's story and also part of the Spin off series from the INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING SERIES The Dragonian Series. *************** Chapter One ：Chapter 1 Most of my memories returned. It took a while, and I felt off-balance after the claim. Fighting to stay good wasn’t as hard as giving in to becoming a slave. Two questions nagged at me: How did Elena become skilled enough to claim me? And who trained her? I racked my brain to remember. Lucian died, and she became a dragon. After that, things were fuzzy. I guess I was so dark and lost that I went over the edge. Why couldn’t I remember? I was in a room I didn’t recognize, with Stan’s voice yapping in my ears. How did I get here? The last thing I remembered, I’d taken a break from band practice and sat against the wall to sift through memories. I wished he would shut up. I had a headache, and his voice was hitting the walls of my brain, vibrating through my skull. He kept yapping. “You are the true royal of this world,” he said with a smirk. “And I will tell them that you are not fit at all. You don’t give us your cooperation to learn. You don’t want to be on the throne. They will strip you of your title and your assets will be frozen.” What the fuck was he talking about? It didn’t make sense, and he was pissing me off. “What you did last night was unacceptable. Do you know the damage you’ve done?” “Fuck off!” I yelled, but he didn’t seem to care. Did he know who he was dealing with?Threatening the Rubicon had consequences. “Do I make myself clear?” he asked. Silence. “Answer me!” His face was beet red. “Yes,” she said. Wait, what? She? It was Elena’s voice. They kept talking, but I didn’t listen anymore. “Blake,” Isaac said, shaking my shoulder. The entire band was in his basement. “You okay, dude?” Ty asked. Isaac chimed in. “Where were you just now?” “Just thinking.” I rubbed my temples. “You told us to fuck off,” Jamie said with a furrowed brow. I ignored him and got up from the floor. I needed to find a newspaper. Yuri always got one early in the mornings. I found one lying on the kitchen table, and on the front page was a picture of Elena Watkins. The headline questioned whether she was fit to be on the throne of Paegeia. I shook my head. Why was this happening? She’d heard my voice when Paul attended Dragonia, but I hadn’t heard a peep from her before. Why now? I didn’t care, and I didn’t want to know what she’d done last night. I wasn’t her dragon, and I would fight with everything I had not to lose myself. The headache pulsed. I grunted and fell to my knees. What ...
King Of Blood
King Of Blood 'I was killed before but this time I decided to do not let him kill me again’ 'King Valdo' He was the strongest creature on earth. He was different, can not be killed in any way. Not by the sunlight. Not by a bullet or stab in his heart. Not by fire. Nothing at all. He was the one who transformed me into a vampire. He killed me once but I decided to not let him kill me again. He took my heart. He stole my life but I won’t let him take my heart from me. Not this time. I was supposed to get married that day, yes Daniel was the only vampire who really loved me. But the king had another opinion. He ruined everything. *************** Chapter One ：Chapter 1 No Wedding! Lisa I was preparing myself for the wedding, finally, I and Daniel will be together. I had never thought that I could fall for a vampire even though I was one of them. But maybe because Daniel was the same as me. He was forced into this life. He didn’t try to kill anyone or suck human blood. He kept the part of his humanity inside him like me. That’s why I decided to be his as his wife. Vampires do not believe in marriage at all. But they did believe in love. But according to me, I was seeking both love and marriage. I didn’t fall for Daniel but I thought he was perfect for me. Until that day came along with darkness to ruin everything and kill every hope inside me. I was wearing my dress and walking into the ballroom with happiness. we didn’t have a priest for sure. It was just a wedding ceremony. Something with vows to tie the knot between the groom and the bride. And suddenly the ballroom turned into deadly silence. Everyone bowed. Sure the king was there. But why did he come! That was the question. Why did he decide to honor us with his attendance to our wedding even though he does not believe in love and marriage? That was a big exclamation mark for me and for all of us. I hated him the most among all the others. I was as special as everyone used to say because I was transformed by the king himself! I have never known the reason but that day I discovered every single secret. Daniel bowed his head like others to the king as others. But I didn’t make a budget as I used to do. That ego in me always got him angry because of my disrespectful attitude. But he never chained me behind cell bars ever! When you treat the king disrespectfully that means two things ‘die or dragged to the jail for thousand a year’ “same fucking attitude Lisa! I should kill you for that.” The king Valdo raised an eyebrow gazing at me. I scoffed with a fake smile “oh yeah? Please do it! I hate this life already.” Daniel shook my hand and apologized to the king “please forgive her— Your majesty. You know that she is an awkward person. Please, it’s our wedding day.” Daniel was sweet, he truly loved me but he wasn’t strong enough to face the king. And that was what I hated about him. He wasn’t a
Immortal: Guardian Of Monsters (Varcolac Novel Book One)
Immortal: Guardian Of Monsters (Varcolac Novel Book One) Natasha’s life begins the night she is turned. With the ability to channel fire, a gift that only belongs to the witches, she becomes a terror— not only to the packs, but all the supernatural breeds. She’s known as Blaze. The deadliest vampire out there.But Blaze has a secret. She didn’t want to become a vampire, she needed to become a vampire, and her reasoning is lost. It died the night her human life did.Her conscience activates when two varcolacs visit the covenant, looking for allies for the Great War. What was it about the Varcolacs that made her grow a conscience? And will she be able to outrun it to keep the title of terror? *************** Chapter One ：Chapter 1 Natasha Present I shifted uselessly against my bonds and gasped as the metal dug into my skin. The chains and heavy locks that shackled my arms and legs to the stiff chair beneath me were made of UVS metal, among the strongest and deadliest metals to our kind. It weakened us so badly that we didn’t even have the strength of a mere human. I winced at the pain throbbing in my neck. Werewolf bite. It was a known fact that vampires did not live long, seven days at most, when bitten by a werewolf. Nobody here would suck out the venom, and no one was coming to my rescue. Tonight’s events played through my mind in vivid detail. Cass had let me go. After so many years, she finally let me go. But when I saw Vladimire and Francine, I knew it had all been a lie. Alex and Leigh never stood a chance. Varcolacs were no match for werewolves. They weren’t as strong and their bodies couldn’t hold the Stra-vain—a concentrated dose of a rare plant that allowed werewolves to transform at will—in their system. Varcolacs had to wait for the full moon. A few nights ago, when I was camping under the moonlight with Alex and Leigh, I’d thought I was the luckiest vampire in history. I had been given a second chance at life. An opportunity to make something good come from evil. But that second night, when Alex smelled wolves on our tail, I knew it was just one of Cass’s cruel games. She’d lied when she told me I could be with Alex, that she knew what it felt like to be in love with a Varcolac. She’d never intended to allow me to leave—not her precious Firebird, Natasha. But never in a million years had I thought she would send my werewolf children to drag meback home. What had she been thinking? That I wouldn’t kill them? Or harm them? When they attacked, I took on Vladimire first. Vladimire, who was like a son to me. I still remembered the day I went to pick him up, or really the day I stole him and his twinsister, Francine. There in the woods, at first, I couldn’t find it in myself to kill him. I tried to scare him with my fire. That hadn’t made him back off, and he’d taunted me, telling me I didn’t have it in me to burn him alive. He was wrong. Francine had attacked Leigh, and Alex had tried to help. His foot trig

Hinder: A Bender's Novel Guardian Of Monsters Book One
Hinder: A Bender's Novel Guardian Of Monsters Book One Ethan Sutcliff seems like a normal seventeen-year-old—at least that's what he's trying to portray. In a secret society run by the Supernaturals, Ethan is what witches call a Bender. Benders are Witches' Guardians, who are able to control a witches' ability, bend it, or move it away from harming humans. In Ethan's case, he is able to bend the Earth element. But at the age of fifteen, he lost all connection to it, and the reasons behind it could only mean one of two things: His Wielder is either dead, or hiding out somewhere. Alex Burgendorf has been living in her aunt's locket for the past sixteen years with her mother—a Fire Wielder, and her father—a Water Wielder. For sixteen years, her parents vowed to protect her, and they have, as she is the last Earth wielding witch. However, time is running out. Alex must find her Bender, or the fate of the Supernaturals might be at stake *************** Chapter One ：Chapter 1 JEFF Awe filled me as I watched Ethan playing in the garden. Though only ten years old and scrawny, he was… a wonder. The farm was the safest place for him. A few miles from the city and its prying eyes. Less danger here. His hands lightly stroked the rosebushes as he walked past them. It wasn’t time for them to bloom yet, but at Ethan’s tender touch, pink and white rosebuds opened and expanded into the most beautiful roses I’d ever seen. “Ethan,” I called from the porch, a warning in my tone. His blond head snapped toward me. He pulled his hand to his chest. “Sorry, Dad.” “Be careful.” I spoke as if he was pulling the cat’s tail—not lending nature a hand. With one flutter of the newspaper, I pretended to return to reading. After a few secondsscowling at the small black letters, I peeked over the top of the page and stared back atEthan. Natalie, his mother, never let him explore. She worried about the others.That they would see. Ethan walked over to the willow sapling Natalie had planted a few weeks ago. It wasn’t tall; the top barely reached Ethan’s waistline. He stumbled and fell with hands first—diving right into the willow. It started to grow… and grow. In a matter of seconds, it was a full-grown tree. Slender, silvery green leaves swayed in the lazy breeze. The newspaper fluttered as I set it aside and stood, mouth agape. Not many could do that at his age. Surprise galloped on the heels of awe, followed by a dash of fear—okay, more than a dash—as Ethan stood and brushed himself off. So this was what Natalie felt most of the time My eyes darted this way and that. What if anyone saw? Everything was exactly as it had been a few moments ago, except for the mature willow in the middle of the yard, its graceful branches lazily stroking the earth. A few cows grazed serenely in the green pasture. The chickens clucked in their pen. The ginger tomcat lay on the opposite chair to mine. Behind me, the door opened. Natalie gasped. She smacked my sh
Starlight Book Five
Starlight Book Five In the Fifth and final part of the Dragonian Series, eighteen-year-old Elena Watkins and her dragon, the Rubicon, need to find the missing ingredients in order to free her father from Etan. But what could the missing ingredient be? And will she be willing to sacrifice her life if they don't find it before time runs out? *************** Chapter One ：Chapter 1 Part One The cameras still flashed as we reached the carriages. Everyone was outside now. King Helmut bowed his head when he saw me, and with a small smile, I shook my head slightly. I had to admit it felt good, standing up to the Ancients. I couldn’t believe they would have put all of these people into quarantine. This time, I refused to let them get their wish. They hadn’t won, and everyone was safe. Blake was put my bag into one of the carriages and gave his to his father. He wasn’t going to come with us to Dragonia Academy? I didn’t like that, but a part of me didn’t want him to come because I knew he was Tabitha’s. I felt so bad about kissing him not just once, but four times. He still confused me so much, and I let out a huge breath just trying to make sense of this sudden change in him. “Hey.” Blake touched my arm. I hadn’t even seen him walking my way. “I take it you are not coming with us?” “All of them are safe. They have you.” “Oh, shut up.” I smacked him hard on the chest, playfully and he laughed. Flashes reflected around us. “Can’t they just go home?” Blake laughed. “You’d better get used to this, as it’s going to be our life from now on.” I smiled. I liked the “our life” part. Still not knowing in what context he meant it, Iassumed he was referring to the fact that he was my dragon—that wasn’t going to change. Yeah, it could only be that. Nothing more. “I have to go with my father. He wants some information.” His grin was huge as he looked down. “I think he is going to start the Dragon League again.” “What?” “Just a small inkling, otherwise I have no idea why he wants this.” I wielded my shield around us and couldn’t hear anything that was going on in the background. “You promised you wouldn’t –” “I’m not stupid. I know what he will do. He can’t know.” “Okay, then I guess I’ll see you when I see you.” “I won’t be gone that long, three days at the most. King Helmut wants to know a couple of things too.” “Okay,” I said. Blake opened the door to one of the carriages and I got in. He tapped twice on the carriage, and I watched him leave. This wasn’t good. I was falling for him, head over heels, and I didn’t know what to do anymore. I’d promised Tabitha. I’d broken so many promises already. I had to give him up. He had never been mine, and if it wasn’t for the dent, a procedure I still didn’t understand, he still wouldn’t have been mine. When we reached Dragonia A...

I knew it was the height of it all when he eventually murders her, but I'm proved wrong when I'm reunited with my long lost Dad. *************** Chapter One ：Chapter 1 Getting Away Claire Pausing in between a line, I waited for the yelling and sobs to stop. They were at it again. Even though it's now a regular thing for them, I didn't like that they were interrupting James's bedtime story. I looked at him, he was calm and half asleep, or maybe he was already in his private world. "You bastard! You can't just come back here whenever you want, drunk and covered in your own filth!" My Mom yelled at her husband and was rewarded a slap. I wonder why she even tries, she'll only get beaten up. "Who do you think you are bitch? This is my house. You and your brats are invading my territory, you can't tell me what to do in my house." I heard another slap, quickly followed by punching noises. Well, she asked for it. He was right though, we were invading his house. I mean, I didn't even want to be there but I'm just fourteen and not old enough to move out yet. Also, I couldn't just leave my little brother there. "We are married, Frank. This has to stop! The drinking, the drugs, the girls... all of it, you have to quit." Mom yelled at him. Another slap. I exhaled.

My Mom said that he abandoned us and we'd have to survive on our own. It was bizarre to me even at ten years old. Dad wasn't like that, besides, who abandons his almost due wife and his little girl to fend for themselves? Only a monster would, and the loving Dad I knew wasn't anything like a Monster. A week later, my mom brought home Frank. He looked responsible then and he was nice to me, but I didn't accept him, I couldn't. Mom didn't even try to convince me, all she said was: "We need his money." They got married the next day without ceremony. I hated everything, I hated my life. I resented everyone until my baby brother was born three weeks after. There I had someone to love, to cherish and to hold unto. "Hit me all you want but I'm not going to shut up. You have to quit!" Mom's yelling broke my line of thoughts. "Damned woman." Frank cursed and then I heard shuffling and crashing. I closed the storybook I held and threw it aside. "This has to stop." I muttered angrily to myself and left my sitting position by the edge of James's bed to his ward...
