Chapter 1 : The beginning

Once upon a time, a young girl who was unhappy, she detested her life, but she never showed it. She wanted to appear stronger in front of everyone. Indeed, she always managed to be calm, to laugh even though her life was far from easy to live. So can you imagine living as a young girl with parents who are better things to do than to take care of you ? Can you live this life only one day ? I would answer you, no, you can’t ; but this life can be someone’s reality. I’ll tell you a story, and this story is mine. My name is Riley Neals, I’m 20 years old. I just finished my studies, which means that either I continue in the right, or I enter to the working life. I would like to become a lawyer like my aunt, she worked hard to be a success, but I know I’m capable. At the high school, I tried to make what I loved to do, but a professor wouldn’t, so I started to lock myself into the art of the writing to let express my emotions. Through these emotions, I could be guided to start writing and thus relieve my pain of not doing what I wanted to do. Moreover, writing allowed me to escape in another world full of hope. Indeed, my life wasn’t very nice, my parents didn’t take care of me, when I had reached the age of 16 and I could take care of myself, I had to learn to feed myself. At first, I found this odd, I don’t understand why I had to take care of myself. And in the course of the months, I didn’t take time to ask them, since my parents didn’t speak to me, and I didn’t know why. The only time when they talked to me, they repeated me that I should leave soon. And once again without knowing why. But to avoid to face myself to them, I preferred to stay in my room and write, which I had become a habit. Yet, in a few months, everything was topple over for me and I was finally going to know the truth about them, and the truth about what they hid me since forever.
