The Monster Behind The Door #17


''Mum, we need to talk. I don't have much time.''

Sitting in the kitchen, I finally told her everything. All what I endured for the last four years. I showed her the hidden bruises, the cuts.
Mum was horrified.
-Lovey, why didn't you say anything before?
I just looked at her, reproachful. She hanged her head in shame.
-Leave to me, your dad will know what to do.
-Please Mum, careful. I'm scared!

The final straw had come in the morning when he kicked me out of the bed and tried to suffocate the crying baby.

Enough was finally enough!
