Chapter 1: 9 months before


It's positive....im pregnant...




This can't be... I can't be pregnant! Not here! Not now! He can't find out no matter what...


" Tiana hurry your lazy ass up I'm starving!" Daniel boomed from the other side of the bathroom door.

"I'm- I'm coming sir"

I rushed to hide the tests and the box, as soon as I flushed the toilet I ran 9ut the door and into the kitchen where he awaited me at the table.

With a devilish, ugly smile he said, "finally your out! Fix my supper woman." His eyes glowed red, which meant he was becoming angry and impatient. I didn't know what he really was until he took me from my family claiming me...

A sting flashed across my cheek and I knew then he was saying something to me but I was lost in my thoughts.

"Damn woman can't do anything right. Forget supper I'm heading out."

I didn't say a word as he walked out the door.

Tears fell down my face and I laughed and laughed as I ran to the room and packed whatever I could. This is my chance to get us out of here.

Once I'm out the door I held my breath for this isn't the first time I've tried to leave, before I'd always get caught.

I got in my car and raced out the opposite direction he went, I didn't care where I was going as long as it was far away from that monster.

My phone rang, I looked down and it was him. Rolling down my window I chucked the phone out and continued towards the airport.

I made it...

I finally made it...

I laughed and cried the whole drive there.

"Where will you be going today Ma'am?"

"Oregan please"

"Here's your ticket, have a nice flight."

I nodded and proceeded through the crowd.

My seat was by the window and right as we was taking off...i saw him.. he was staring right at me and mouthed something.

"I'll find you bitch."

Guards proceeded to escort him out to the lobby and I exhaled in relief.

A baby.

I'll have a baby in 9 months. No money. No home. No job. What am i going to do!?

Sucking in a breath I thought clearly.

It'll be alright, I'll find a job and save money to buy an apartment.

As i rubbed my belly i thought to myself; I wont let anyone hurt you and I promise to give you a life I never had.

I drifted off to sleep with that promise in my heart and a future ahead of me and my baby.
