"I had never seen my dad cry, my emotions were conflicted. Part of me was angry and hurt that he beat me, the other part was hurt that I hurt him. I backed out the room, went into my room and cried myself to sleep.
For the next few days I would barely come out of my room or eat and finally, I put all my clothes in a trash bag, wrote a note and ran away. No idea where I was going...
...I remember, sitting in their kitchen and her mother sitting across from me telling me I needed to go home, that my dad loved me and she would have to tell him I was there and if he was to say ok, I could live there. I cried and begged her not to tell but it was too late, he was already pulling up and I had no escape. He came in the house and thanked her for keeping me safe, grabbed my trash bag and we got into the car. In the car was nothing but silence. We went to his house, “Are you going to beat me, again?”
...I don’t know what was going on in his head at that moment, maybe he thought to bring me back to what was once our home would fix everything that was breaking us apart, or maybe it was our last moment together of what use to be..."
