Beaten and cheated, Part II

“Don’t judge yourself by what others did to you.”

C. Kennedy, Ómorphi

Back in march, I began writing about a true story that has been in the making for 30 years. And She finally did it, she left!

 

You can read the first part here.

 

I finished that post with “But the story is still not over…” and now below is the rest of the story.

Chapter 13

 

He drives his cruel fingers in her throat

prisioning the air, pulling the life out of her

A young boy shrieks with terror

His knees bruise her ribs

 

Chapter 14

 

The small bag of clothes quiver in her hands

The tears in her eyes tremble and fall

She has escaped

with only her life on her back

 

Chapter 15

 

Her daughter denies the horrendous abuse

The lawyer paces his office, eyes blanketed with raging empathy

Her flesh announce her a liar: “No money for an old woman”

“I will make them pay”, the lawyer reassures

 

I will keep updating this story as life happens to her. Because the story is still not over…
