✿ Excerpt ✿


Prologue

GRACE

The man and lady of the house my Mummy works in, are screaming at each other and it's really scary. I can't remember their names, I'm sure it starts with a big H, but normally they are really nice to me and Mummy, but today is different and I don't know why.

Mummy and I are downstairs and we can hear every word that is being said between the two of them.

I look over at Mummy and her cold blue eyes that once told me she loved me, now tell me something completely different. They tell me everything she won't say to me, even though I don't want it to be true.

"This is all your fault." I jump at the scary sound above me that sounds like something special is breaking.

"You can tell your British slut to get out of my house."

"She has nowhere else to go, darling."

"Don't you dare darling me, you bastard." I can hear something else break above and the man says a naughty word. I look over at Mummy and attempt to move towards her for a cuddle, but she walks away from me just as I hear the lady continue shouting.

"You know what? I don't care about the business over here. You can tell Edward we are moving back to America. I don't care about that slut and her little bastard."

All of a sudden the picture changes before me and my adult self is flying through the town I grew up in and I can see my whole childhood before me. All the nasty words my mother or stepfather ever said to me. The slaps to the face my mother loved to give me when she felt I'd done something wrong.

"This is all your fault."

"You worthless piece of shit."

"I hate you, we hate you. Even your father couldn't stand to be near you."

"He left us, because of you."

"We live like this, because of you. YOU, GRACE."

"You won't amount to anything, you're useless."

"I wish I never had you, I hate you and you're worthless."

I can feel all the hatred centered in on that little girl and I can feel all the tears she doesn't show as she grows into the teenager who hates and loathes herself so much. I can see my teenage self standing by the edge of the River Tone just before its cold waters engulf me, drowning me and pulling me down to its depths with my own self-hatred and sorrow. I try to reach the water's surface, but the cold water is keeping me down, engulfing me with the old memories that still haunt me.

"You're worthless."

"You won't amount to anything."
