The Beginning Of The Very End!!I continued to live upstairs, listening to his sarcastic comments as he passed the bedroom. I ignored his comments for i knew if i responded it would have only escalated into something more.
It was 5th December, as usual he was out all day and returned home drunk, as soon as he came in the front door i went upstairs out of his way. My 2 daughters were also upstairs. After around 15mins of him being in i heard a crash...thinking he had fell of had another fit i came downstairs, only to find he had dropped his dinner on the floor. I honestly didn't say anything i just got some cleaning stuff and started to tidy the mess from the floor. Oh then he started yelling " oh you decide to come downstairs now"! he continued to yell at me but i just kept my mouth shut as i knew he was looking for an arguement.
As i came back from the kitchen he jumped up from the chair, so i headed for the stairs. I really had no idea what he was about to do, he headed straight for me clutching the knife he had been eating dinner with. I turned, I froze on the stairs afraid to move, I dont remember how but i ended up sitting so he was towering over me. He was practically nose to nose with me and he had a wild look in his eyes and to be honest i really cant remember much of what he was shouting at me the only words i remember where "that he was going to slit my throat" I was so scared and remember thinking to myself if i talk to him calmly he will "back off" but it didnt work. Then without warning he pulled the knife back and thrust forward as if he were going to stab me in my thigh..omg i was terrified so much so i screamed as i thought the knife was going to sink into my thigh, thank god he didnt he stopped cms away!!!!
My eldest daughter was witnessing all of this from upstairs.. it was then i called to her "just do it" she knew what i meant as we had discussed that if i ever felt that i was in danger she must call the police immediately. At that time i felt we were all in danger. He heard her talking on the phone and then his anger was distracted for a moment thats when i ran up the stairs and to where both my daughters were, I slammed the bedroom door shut.
His anger was now directed at all of us because we were together in one room, we could hear him shouting swearing and threatening and then he stomped his way up the stairs...all three of us lent against the door to stop him from opening it, he was thumping the door so hard my youngest daughter was terrified. Terrified of her own dad!!! She begged him to stop...his reply i will never forget he screamed... " OH SHUT THE F*** UP *****" by this time tears were streaming down her face. Whilst leaning with my back against the door i hugged her so tight, reasuring her. I was trying to keep as calm as possible because i knew the police were on there way, although my heart was racing because i actually did'nt know how long we could keep him out!
When they arrived i spoke to them from the bedroom window. Strange that he had suddenly became quite a resonable controlled man and let them in saying that there wasn't a problem! Of course they knew different, they had the report from the operator who had heard over the phone what really had been happening.
Two police officers spoke to him downstairs and two women officers to us upstairs. They removed him from the property and he spent the night in a police cell. Because he had not physically touched me, i was told he would only be charged with was breach of the peace!!
(im going to write what happened next in another story, its becoming upsetting to write this but i need to do it :)
