Behind Closed Doors
Author: Auty

Chapter 28
The last chapter

Everything went like a world wind after that.
Miss Godwin kept her word and visited me any time she could. She told me to call her by her first name, Laura, but it sounded weird and I liked Miss Godwin better.
I was put into a care home for a few weeks and then I moved in with someone called Auntie Hannah. She had a son of her own and two other foster kids. They were both boys so I mainly kept myself to myself.

The tests results came back as all clear much to my relief. The Doctor said I was very lucky not to have caught a STI. I never heard from Daddy again. Miss Godwin told me he went to court and then put in prison. I don't ever want to see him again. Now, I'm older, I understand what happened wasn't my fault. I was just a child caught up in it. He was the one in the wrong. He was the one who was bad and evil.

I started secondary school in September. Miss Godwin told me to make a fresh start and make some friends. I did try but I wasn't used to talking to people. However, another girl who didn't talk much in my form, Stephanie, smiled at me one day and we are now good friends. Auntie Hannah said I should invite her round for tea one day. I might do actually. She isn't the kind of person to laugh at me. Not many of the kids know about me and where I live. Steph is one of the few people who do.

It's coming up for my 12th birthday and Auntie Hannah wants me to have a party. I said I didn't want anything. After all, you don't need a party to make something special. Love, warmth and food can do all those things. All those years I missed out on, are being made up for now. Daddy already ruined the first 11 years of my life and I'm not going to let him ruin the rest.

The End :D

*Authors note*
Thanks for reading! People who are asking about me, I'm a girl, 13 years old and no this has never happened to me thankfully! I got the idea from a Childline advert I saw the other day and my imagination kind of went on from there. Please comment and recommend. Thank you. xx
