What is it like to discover your mother’s past in her diary when she’s not there to explain secluded matters? To grow up without your dad and later discover he was in jail … It took an effort to win my trust, just to ruin it after getting involved in his old ways. He got shot during a wrong deal, and I was alone with him in the hospital when he passed away. He never was my father, but he gave me life.
I was hiding in my closet, like many times before, my hands over my ears to drown out my parents’ voices, who were screaming at each other down the hallway. Dad couldn’t support, Mom couldn’t cope, and I couldn’t escape. So the life that followed was changed from how life was before.
I could hear the family cry as I strolled downstairs. Something happened. He didn’t get home last night. Something happened.
The atmosphere was heavy with mourning. The sobs and distressed voices echoed through the house, vividly depicting their anxiety. The air was too thick to breathe, I could feel my heartbeat drumming in my ears. As I entered the living room, the scene before me told me a story of significant distress. Tear-stained cheeks and eyes greeted me, and hushed conversations paused as they noticed my presence. A heavy silence settled in the room.
Though the sorrow was dire, and the bond between his dominant family members provided each other a source of strength, I was left out, unable to feel anything. A cousin whispered to me that I became a widow overnight, but I couldn’t share the extreme sorrow they had. Instead, an enormous sense of relief filled my heart. That alone came with guilt, altogether with comfort. I was going to get away, finally!

Everything was already broken. There was no phone to call for help. He’d already broken that too. And I knew if he got through that door, with the adrenaline rush he’d get, I wouldn’t have survived. I never wanted him dead … I just wanted to live …'
