Total Coward!!

She hears him pull into the driveway, the car door slams, she now can hear him walking up the stairs, his heavy foot steps, and the door opens...she tenses...for she knows he has been drinking, or what ever his poison is tonight, she can tell by the very way he is talking...she tries to ignore him and continue to finish preparing dinner as she sets the table..he walks in and sits at the table, she begins to feel nervous, and uneasy...her heart races, pulse quickens...hoping they can actually get through dinner without anything happening....but no such luck.....
   "You are late with dinner" he said in a low, deep voice..."well tried to keep it warm as long as I could, had it ready on the usual time.." she replied back, knowing very well that was not the best answer to give, but deep inside she really did not care, she was forced to marry him, (arranged marriage) for the last eight years he had given her nothing but one beating after anothert, after a while she could not feel them any more, and she stopped caring a long time ago.....
  "Do I need to do something to get you back in line" he said as he stood behind her...his voice was angry now...."no " she said keeping her back to him...."turn around when I am talking to you" he said as he grabbed her hard by the arm....She gave him that hard hatred look in his very eye...he back handed her so hard she hit the bloor...she then could taste that saltyness of her blood seeping in her mouth....the next thing she knew he grabbed her hard and was dragging her to the bedroom...she fought and screamed, he slams her down hard on the bed, and pins her so she cannot move...she saw him with that long black case, and right away she began struggling hard, fighting as hard as she could "get that **** away from me...no!!" she yelled out...he back hands her so hard she is half unconscious "this will keep you in line where you should be!" he said as she rolls her over and tears at her pants, he exposes her butt cheek...."no!!" she says trying to fight him, he hits her hard again...within minutes she feels the sharp poke, and then a warm feeling takes her over.....
  The sun shone bright through the curtains, weak she slowly sits up, feel sick to her stomach she runs to the bathroom and throws up hard, her body shakes with total weakness, her head pounds with pain, her face hurts....she manages to get to the sink to wash her mouth out, as she looks in the mirror and sees nothing but a big bruise across her mouth, and another bruise on her cheek, she looks at her toned body in the full lenght mirror and sees scars here and there, she looks away in sadness, as she washes her face, the warmth of the water feels good on the face....she steps into the shower...letting the water run all over her freely, the warmth of the shower on her brings her back to life....some what.....
  As she gets out of the shower, wraps a towel around her and walks to the room, a little apprehensive as to see where he is at...passed out on the couch. She tries not to make a sound not to wake him, but too late, she hears him wake, and that awful feeling grows in her again as she hears him walking to the bedroom, she prays he is just coming to see if she is awake and leaves, but no such luck....."about time you get your *** out of bed " he says as he walks up behind her, she tenses hard, as she feels him pull the towel away from her, exposing her nakedness..."I am sorry about last night, but you were misbehaving again, and you know how I don't like that...as he pushes her hard down on the bed..."I have to go and make breakfast" she said trying to get up...."after" he said as he grabs her and pushes her down, forces her legs open and forces him self inside her, the pain ripped through her like fire....after she lay there and cried, the hate grew and grew so deep inside her, as she cleaned up and got dressed, after breakfast he looks at her..."do something with your face, you know how I don't like you not looking good" he said to her bumping her hard as he walked by....half of her was tempted to grab the very knife that was sitting on the counter and plunge it into him over and over, she saw it in her mind a thousand times.....
  She looked at her self in the mirror after applying her make up, looking like there was almost nothing there she thought to her self as the make up hid all the bruises on her face......
  She greets her Uncle as he comes in...He looks around to see if he is home "he is not home" she says as she shuts the door "he is at work"  she says sitting across from him at the table. He is the only one she trusts in the family.."I see he has been at you again" He says to her touching her face where light images of the bruising shows..."yes" she said with tears in her eyes "I cannot do this anymore, I need to get away from him...or else something is going to happen, something serious" she pleads him...."you know your father will not allow you to divorce him, it is not the way" he replies back sadly looking at her, it was hard for him to watch her go through this..."I don't give a **** what the way is, I want away from this ****...or I will make him go away, hate him, he makes me sick!" she says in pure hatred "okay, okay, let me figure something out" he says as he hugs her "I have connections to get you out" he assures her "I will work this out okay, hang in there" he encouraged her "I have been hanging in this for ten years, no more, if he hits me one more time he is going to regret it, get me?" she said in a cold voice "I get it, yes I get it"
  Later that night, he comes home so late, she hears him come through the door, staggering, noisey....he walks to the room, and wakes her, so he thinks, she was not sleeping.....he stagers out in the living room, and she hears him flop on the couch.......
  Morning comes, all is silent, half way through breakfast he looks deep at her....."I hear your Uncle was here" he said in a flat voice..."yes" she replies back without even looking at him "what did he want?" he asks..."just wanted to drop in for a visit" she says back playing with her food, she felt like a child being scolded, hated it.."just for a visit huh?" he says in an untrusting voice "yes for a visit, funny how family does that once and a while" she snapped back at him, and knew what was coming after that..."are you getting pissy with me?" he says as he grabs her...."no" she said as she tries to pull away "It sure sounded like that to me with that answer" he said pushing her into the counter, he back hands her hard as she falls to the floor, he kicks her, then picks her up "you will watch your tone with me got that?" he threatened as he grabbed her face hard....."oh I got it" she said staring right back into his eyes, the fear was now gone, as her free hand was grasping the cast iron frying pan on the stove..."that sounded very sarcastic" he said gripping hard, then pushing her face away hard, he began to turn around and walk away, within a second she swung the heavy frying pan and felt it connect with his head hard, watching him fall, almost lifeless, she hits him again, the hate, the rage almost taking over....but something made her stop...he lays motionless....
  In shock, as she sees nothing but a red pool form below his head, then total emptiness takes her over, she does nothing to assist him, walks way....she picks up the phone and calls her Uncle, within minutes he is there, and sees him lying on the floor, he is shocked, and looks at her, can see her face bleeding, and her clothes torn....he is about to get her outof there, when the police begin to pull into the drive way "damn...neighbors must have called again, let's get you out of here" he said attempting to leave...but too late the police officer is already at the door....she pushes the door open, and sees him lying on the floor, the blood formed under his head, within minutes she feels them grab her and hand cuff her, the ambulance arrives and takes him away.....
  She is so empty and numb she cannot feel a thing, she could bearly hear the police officer asking her questions at first, she zones out.....she can dimly hear her Uncle explaining what has been going on....they put her in the car, she can see the neighbors watching, and looking, pointing...but she no longer cares, there is nothing left in her to care any more, at this point she does not care what happens any more, 
  Her lawyer asks the hard questions, the lump in her throat is so painful she can bearly breathe as she explains her whole ten year marriage of hell with this man, and how it came to be that they married....arranged by her father.....
 She hears him battle in court for her, their words back and forth, the good, the bad and the ugly....she cannot even look at her husband who sits on the very other side of the court room.....
  After a long month battle in court, the day is here, what will happen to her, what is going to be her fate.....she hears the judge sentence him, a long sentence...her heart races as she hears him telling her to stand....but she is relieved...he tells her she has to attend a special hospital and then she is free......
   Many months later....
Her friend hugs her hard and comforting...."good luck, call any time you need okay" the head counsellor says to her, she hugs her newly made friends and walks down the corridor with her friend, to see the front door to freedom makes her heart race with happiness, her excitment and fear rush through her....as she walks out into the sun, it feels good on her face, the gentle breeze whisps across her face......
  "Well here you are" her friend says as she walks her into a beautifully set up apartment, she is wowed how nice everything is, cozy, comforting, relaxing, something she has not been able to do for so long....her Uncle walks in, hugs her with all the love he can, she holds on hard as she can feel tears of happiness fill her eyes....."whose place is this? it is really nice" she asks walking around, loooking at everything "It is yours" his Uncle says watching her walk around "What?" she says looking at him full of shock "Yes this is all yours, I set it all up for you, a new beginning, you needed a new start, and here it is, this is all for you" he said kissing her forehead "you can't be serious Uncle, how the hell am I going to pay you back for all of this?" she asked with a lump in her throat...."the only way you pay me back is to live, be free, be happy, start fresh and new, that is it" he said hugging her "wow, do not know how to thank you" she cried...."promise me...never let anyone do this to you again" he said hugging her hard...
   "never again" she promised back......
