Today has been better than yesterday was for her. No yelling, no fighting, no hurtful words were propelled at her.
Last night was rough on her. She had to meet her regulars, some nice, some not so much. There was always those men who were very aggressive and since they were paying they felt entitled to anything they wanted. The girl would stop arguing after the first hit, she would stop resisting and let herself float into subspace waiting till it was over. The girl would awaken withÂ noticeably blackÂ bruises up and down her arms, her neck, and down her legs.
She is afraid to go home, she is afraid what is waiting for her there. She wants to leave from school and run away. The only thing stopping her? Julia. Her younger sister. Julia is handicapped with Spina Bifida and is only 11 years old. Julia is her entire world and the only reason why she is still living. She has mothered Julia since she was born, giving her bottles and her medicine, holding her throughout every seizure, taking her to surgeries, being there for her night and day. She is the only ray of sunshine in the girls dark world.
God sent Julia to the girl for a reason. Julia is why the girl has not given up. Julia is the girls Guardian Angel.
