Chapter 1

  • I'm an orphan, no home, no friends, never felt love before and I have never been loved.
  • Although I have been told how beautiful I am when I walk on the streets, well, that was before now I am not really beautiful any more.
  • I never knew my parents, don't even know if I have a family, maybe they dump me in a dustbin or they lost me, really I don't know.
  • Been in the orphanage had been fun at first, but I was always mocked and bullied by other orphans and my mates.
  • The first orphanage that took me in, left me behind when we went for our trips, it was a rich orphanage, the second one I ran away from there because of their ill treatment towards me and I couldn't take it.
  • I just couldn't.
  • That day, I slept in the streets with my luggage only to wake up in the night and find out my clothes had been stolen.
  • Life had been unfair to me but I was happy they didn't take my novels cause I can't do without them, it calms me down.
  • I usually read them and listen to other people stories their famous, sad, painful story.
  • I got my stories from my first orphanage well, I was friendly to an old woman and she bought me books a lot of books.
  • When I read them, I have hope that one day it will all be over... I really hope so, I also pray a lot to God to change my predicament.
  • Many tragic and painful things have happened to me, I even got raped one of the the days that I was on the street, that day I cried out my heart, I cried till I feel asleep.
  • Why is this world so cruel and wicked.
  • At my age, I'm just too young to suffer like this, mommy why did you leave me.
  • Daddy where are you?
  • My country is hard and this world is beyond wicked.
  • I prayed to enter another orphanage before something else happen to me.
  • Few days later
  • I was walking on the streets with my black little bag...looking for some good to steal, I haven't eaten for hours an am so weak but I have to try.
  • I was walking pass a quiet street, and the thought of it give me goosebumps, I was about going back but unfortunately a man was blocking the place that I entered from.
  • "Not again." I said and ran forward.
  • I have seen that man before, he always follows me, he was also one of the guys who told me how beautiful I was.
  • I don't know what he wants me for but each time I see him I just use your remember the night I was raped, it still hunts me, mostly at night.
  • "Leave me alone." I ran and held my bag firmly while he trailed behind me.
  • His speed increased an and he got closer to me, I was really scared.
  • I was running and looking back too, I saw that he retreated and I faced forward to ran faster but instead bumped into a strange, mean looking, tall, weird and old lady.
  • And I was a little glad but still scared, if she leaves, he'll chase after me.
  • "What are you doing in this street?" Her cold voice rang in my head and I shivered.
  • "I.. I..don't know." I stuttered.
  • "Go home." She said.
  • "I don't have a home." I replied sadly.
  • "Where are your parents?" She asked.
  • "I don't know, I never knew them." I said.
  • "Hmm, come with me." She said and walked pass me.
  • "Where are we going?" I asked, but she just continued walking.
  • The last thing I want is for that man to have his chance to do all what God knows to me. So I quickly rushed after her and I watched as the man came out and went him way and I breath out a sigh of relief.
  • I'm young but am intelligent, and also a fast learner, I really really want to go to school at least I would be learning more things there.
  • The woman led me to a strange and expensive looking building that read "Children home", thank God, another orphanage, I would have died but God answered my prayers. We walked in and she handed me over to a strict looking lady.
  • "You're going to be safe here." She said, I nodded and she left.
  • "Follow me" The lady said strictly.
  • She took me to a room which had 6 beds which where arranged round the room.
  • They were 5 girls on each bed except one, it's probably mine.
  • "This is your room." The strict lady said and left.
  • A girl sends me a smile, "What's your name?"
  • It was the first time anyone every ask of my name.
  • "I'm Laura." I said. "What about you."
  • "Madison, but you can call me Maddy." she said.
  • "I'm Tammy." Another girl said.
  • "Patricia."
  • Cool names.
  • "I am Christy." She looked like the youngest in the room of girls.
  • They both stared at the last girl who looked like, about my age. She stood up and made her way to me.
  • "I'm the queen of this house, so you'll call me Queen Racheal." She said and moved her hip and I rolled my eyes.
  • "Did you just roll your eyes at me?"she asked.
  • It all seemed like a video game.
  • I don't know where I got the courage from.
  • "Yeah I did." I said fiercely.
  • She squinted at me. "I'll show you then." Before I know what was going on, she landed a slap on my face.
  • That does it.
  • We fought tooth and nail, while the other girls tried to seperate us, theorically speaking I gave her a hell of a beating.
  • When we were seperated, I saw how bruised her face and I was glad inside me.
  • Suddenly, the door squeaked open and the strict lady walked in holding a long whip which made me shiver.
  • "So, you first day here leads to a fight." She said coldly.
  • "No, she st... "
  • "Not only that, but you bruised my Rachel's face." She said and Rachel smiled.
  • "She even threatened me." She said.
  • "What?" I gasped.
  • If you want a threat that's what your gonna have.
  • "We don't th.."
  • "You filthy brat, you took your swim in your pride before as much you wanted, but as I'm here that stops now. And don't you ever lay a hand on me again."
  • "Do you know who I am?" She asked.
  • Like if I care.
  • "Yeah a bitch." I said and I heard giggle from the girls.
  • "I am older than you, I'm 15 and-"
  • "Great! We are the same age, sharing an age with you brat isn't even en-" I didn't even complete my sentence before I received some whips at my back.
  • * * *
  • I was crying on Maddy's laps after being flogged and whipped.
  • "What's the name of that woman?"
  • "Her name is Mrs Rose." She said.
  • She looks nothing like a rose.
  • "But, of course, she doesn't act like a rose." She said.
  • "Donn't worry, the pain will go away, very soon." Christy said.
  • Her cute smile, made me hold my tongue.
  • "Thanks guys, I appreciate it." I said.
  • "Even though I hardly know you all."
  • For the a long time in a while, I had meet people who I think I could call friends.
