The story so far:
They are standing in the middle of the room exchanging looks, are any of them going to say anything?
“This was just going to come out one day wasn’t it?” Kate asks sighing.
“Yeah it was do you want to be the one to explain it to her?” Amy asks yelling.
“Fine, yeah, I will. You see Sarah, you got three aunts, Zoe being the eldest thought it would be a good idea to put you in a place where you have no freedom, and why? Because she doesn’t want you to know who you are. You got no parents, they died when you were a baby, and we don’t care about you. Well… Zoe does, if she found out what we did to you, she would kill us,” Kate yells.
“Have you been drinking?” Emma asks Kate.
“Who cares if I have? No one, that’s who, And Sarah, the sad thing is that Zoe thinks that we’re nice to you. Ha, and I bet you have the bullet to, if you used that brain of yours you could kill us all. But you won’t, because you can’t bring yourself to do it, just like Zoe you are. Come on Amy, I’m taking you back to mine” Kate grabs Amy by the shoulders and pushes her out. Emma looks at me and then follows.
What just happened? I have a lump in my throat now, and tears start to drip down my face. I don’t know what to feel right now. Depression clouds over me, and I lie down staring at the ceiling.
I can’t just lie here feeling sorry for myself. I need to get out of here, and I need to stand up for myself. But yet, I only know what will happen to me if I will. I sit up, I’m going to do it, I’m going to make myself heard, and I don’t care for the consequences. They can take my freedom, but they can’t take my dignity from me.
Running out I take a deep breath in, I am going to stand my ground. The dining room, that’s where they mostly stay. I head down the steps, Danielle comes around the corner.
“Wanna come to my room?” she asks sucking on a lolly.
“No, I’d rather have an ogre eat my eyes, let a bear rip my stomach out and let vultures pick my bones to be honest Danielle,” I say without thinking, wow, I feel great. I walk past her, and head down the corridor. I need to develop a sarcastic attitude, and fast. Bursting into the dining room, every head turns towards me. “Everyone alright?” I yell, what am I doing? “I bet you’re all having fun in here, sitting, talking, drinking having a really good time – “ I pull a ribena out the fridge, and down it.
“Sarah what are you doing?” Emma asks walking in.
“Having a drink, or am I not allowed that either”
“Come on, go to your room”
“No, I’m not, do what you want to me, beat me, torture me, hit me, I don’t care anymore and nor do any of you people. All you do day in day out is get drunk and abuse us people cos you’ve got nothing else better to do – “ I jump on the table, and start kicking things around.
“Get her down from there”
“Sarah come on,” Sam and Steph say.
“No!” I yell, and jump onto another table. I turn to look at Emma, and see someone else standing next to her, its Laura, the upper rank to Kate.
