He killed my friend, now he was after me

Abusive-Part Two

by Maria Millsaps

The author has placed a warning on this post for violence.

David kicked the door down, entering the house. I hid in the closet, trying to open the security box to load the gun, but it was too dark; my hands shook, and I couldn't see the numbers.

"Come out, tell me about abuse." He said, getting closer. Tears rolled down my face. What a nightmare; I thought, why me?

The police had arrived, but would this be the day I die like my bestie? HELP!
