"What did you do that for?" Her enraged boyfried hissed at her.

She sat there and cried.

"I'm sorry, I just- I didn't mean it!" She told him.

"How could you not mean it? You hit me! You acussed me of things that I didn't do, then you hit me!" He said.

He hit her once again.

She sat there and sobbed.

What did she do to deserve this?

She thought.

"I'm sorry! Please stop!" She cried.

"Stop! Stop? You have no clue on everything I've done for you! You don't know what I've been through for you! When you do is when I'll stop!" He yelled and left her there lying on the floor bleeding from multiple places.

She laid there crying.

She felt numb.

She knew she was going to be dizzy for abit.

She sat up slowly, and tried to stand up.

He beat her again.

He's been doing this alot lately.

She'd never get out of it, could she?

She heard him yelling downstairs, then the door slammed shut.

She heard the car start and drive off.

Their Four year old daughter was crying and screaming at the top of her lungs.

"MOMMY!" She yelled.

Kelsey got off the ground and slowly walked towards her daughter's room.

She picked up her daughter.

"It's okay baby. Mommy's okay. Daddy's just mad." She told her daughter.

She packs her daughter a bag of clothes and grabbed her teddy bear.

Kelsey walked back to her room, and made a bag to leave.

She grabbed her cell phone from the tabel.

She looks around the room.

Sadly, she'd have to come back.

She picked up Karina and they left.

They went to Kelsey's best friends house.

"Kelsey? Oh my god, what happend!" Haley asked.

"can we stay here for a day or two?" Kelsey asked.

"Of course, come on in. Just ignore the boys watching the game." She told her.

"Mommy, I'm scared.." Karina said.

"It's okay baby. Aunt Haley won't let Daddy hurt you." Kelsey told her.

They walked in and went to the kitchen.

Haley tried to help clean up the cuts, and bruises on Kelsey's face.

"Hey Babe, where'd you put th- Holy Crap what happened to you Kels?" Haley's husband Jeff asked.

Kelsey looked over at him.

"He did it again." Haley said.

"You need to call the police." Jeff said.

"I can't. Karina needs a father. If I do, they'll take him away from her." Kelsey told him.

"So your going to continue to get hurt, same with Karina!" Haley asked.

"He hasn't hurt Karina in months." Kelsey lied.

"Karina, honey has your daddy hurt you?" Haley asked.

"Yes." Karina said.

"That's it. I'm calling the police." Haley said.

"Hal, please just give him time to calm down! He's been mad lately, and you know how he is when he's mad. Just give him some time. Please." Kelsey begged.

A month later

"Baby, you know our fifth year aniversary is coming up right?" He asked Kelsey.

"Yes Jarred, I know." She told him.

"What are we going to do this year?" He asked.

"I don't know.. what do you want to do this year?" She asked.

"Hmm I don't know, mabey we could just have dinner, and see what happeneds." He said.

"Sounds good to me." She replied.

"So is dinner done?" He asked.

"almost. Can you do me a favor?" She asked.

"What is it?" He asked.

"Can you get Karina in her chair please?" She asked.

"Of course." He said.

He left and brought Karina to the dinning room for dinner.

They all ate dinner, when Jarreds phone rang.

He smiled and walked off.

Kelsey sighed to herself, then continued to eat.

The Aniversary.

"What do you mean you aren't done yet?" He yelled at her.

"It's not ready yet!" She yelled back.

He came and hit her in the face.

"You should've made it earlier!" He yelled.

He kicked her in the stomach, then walked out of the house.

She was left on the floor crying.

She got up and stopped the food.

She went to walk out of the door when he walked in.

"Where are you going?" He yelled.

"Just outside." She said.

"NO your not. Your going to cook that dinner." He told her.

He went and turned the oven back on.

He then went to the basement.

She walked to the bathroom, and looked at the bruises.

He walked in behind her and grabbed her arm.

"What is going on with you!" He yelled at her.

"Nothing." She replied.

He hit her across the face again.

"Something is! You always so distant!" He yelled.

With another hit she spit blodd up.

He was now killing her.

Slowly Killing her.

She had been abused alot, but this was too much.

"I have done everything I can to make you happy! What else do you want me to do!" She yelled.

"Happy? You think I'm happy!" HE yelled.

"Weren't you! You didn't get abusive until about three months ago!" She yelled.

He looked at her in pure anger.

"You want abusive? I can show you abusive!" He told her.

He grabbed her by the hair and threw her on the floor.

She hit her head against the counter of the sink.

She was knocked out.

He left her there, and left.

When she awoke, she smelt smoke.

She looked around and found smoke coming from the kitchen.

She stood up and opened the door to find the kitchen in flames.

SHe covered her mouth and ran towards the door.

She made it, but the door wouldn't open.

She ran upstairs to the safty window.

She kept trying to get it open.

"KELSEY!"Haley was yelling as she saw her best friend.

Kelsey had blood coming from her head.

She grabbed whatever she could and tried to get the window open.

"MOMMY!" Kelsey saw Karina next to Haley.

Kelsey started crying.

She wasn't going to make it out.

"KELSEY! MOVE!" She heard Jarred yell.

She moved away from the window and something broke the window.

Kelsey tried to get to the window,but as she got half way through the window the flames hit the gas tank in the basement causing the house to explode.

Kelsey was thrown from the house, and landed on her back on the ground.
She was dead.

"Mommy!" Karina yelled.

They kept Karina away from Kelsey.

Karina ran over and hugged her mother.

"Mommy! Wake up! Mommy!" Karina cried.

Jarred was in shock.

If he hadn't left, this wouldn't have happened.

Haley ran over to Jarred and was hitting him.



He was crying now.


Jarred was taken away in handcuffs, crying.

Karina was adopted by Haley and Jeff.

She had nightmares of her mother for months, but soon they disappeared as she grew up.

Jarred was sentenced to Life in prison.

Karina knew her mother was killed by her father, but she still went to visit her father.

Karina had Two children with her best friend Mike.

Kelsey after her mother, and Jennifer after Mike's sister.
