Dad left last night.  I over heard my parents screaming and shouting at each other all last night.  I stayed up listening, when it stopped!  Then I realised that he was gone.  The weren’t arguing like they normally did.  It was a big fight.  When Mum got up this morning, I noticed that she had a black eye, and a bad scratch on her fore head. We had breakfast, but no-one said anything.  We knew what had happened was bad.  Really bad.  I got dressed, brushed my teeth, and got ready for school.

When I got to school,  Emily, my best friend, asked what was the matter, but I didn’t answer her.  I didn’t answer anyone.  I didn’t speak in class either; or raise my hand.  I don’t even know what lessons we had!  I was too distracted. I hardly touched my dinner.

When I got home after school, the police were there!  They told me to go upstairs.  I over-heard what they were saying.

“When did this happen miss?”

“Last night, my husband did it!  I don’t know where he is though, he left!”

Why was she telling them all this stuff?  I know that she rang them, but she shouldn’t be telling them every single detail!  I ran to my room and stayed there, until Mum called my down. After they were gone!  We had toast for tea, yet we didn’t eat anything.  We didn’t talk, we just watched the plain blank screen.  I didn’t go to school the next day, I couldn’t bear it!  He was my father and now he was gone…

    Charlotte, this is a fabulous piece of writing and I am so proud of you, well done. I really felt for the character in this story, as well as her family. You really captured the emotions and made your readers really care about what may happen next.
    I wonder what will happen next Charlotte, I do hope we get another chapter to this story for us to read?
