it was december the 5th a very cold frosty morning.
Laura woke up at five.
In the darkness she took her only teddy bear and went down stairs to get a drink this was the biggest mistake of her life.
Everyday her mum would wake her at half nine now because she woke earliar she did not know her mother was being beaten by her hero the man she loved-her father.
She got to the kitchen there was blood dripping her father screaming she cried stop daddy daddy stop he didnt listen to her..
he just left.
her mum was angry she told laura never to come downstairs without her permission litte laura only five years old tried to explainbut her mother wouldnt listen she hit her on her bum with a wooden spoon go and get dressed she screamed
That day they went to the supermarket as usual her mum and dad were acting as if nothing happened usually she walked behind them quietly daydreaming

Aoife came over to her and gave her a hug.
But laura seen her dads piercing stare and backed away
Laura was frightened.
She asked could she go to the toilet but her father said no she begged and pleaded saying she'd come straight back but they got angry and said no.
Soon after she wet herself they said nothing justlaughed at her and made her take of her shoes as a punishment
When she got home her dad locked her in the boot of his car.
She was happy there because she felt safer.
after about 5 hours her dad came and dragged her into the house he then hit her around the living room he made her take a bath in freezing water even though there was warm water...
then he told her to go to bed without dinner
Laura did as was told.
When in bed she heard screaming and shouting
and banging and breaking
she put the pillow over her head to stop it.
After 2 hours the sound was gone her dad had gone to the pub.
She crept downstairs to take a apple out of the fruit basket.
Little did she know it was her mum who walked out who left them afraid of her father
her father caught her and said she was a little brat sneaking to eat good food when she had eat much to much today.
