Hey girl, you know you drive me crazy
One look puts the rhythm in my hand
Still I'll never understand why you hang around
I see what's going down

Cover up with makeup in the mirror
Tell yourself it's never going to happen again
You cry alone and then he swears he loves you

Do you feel like a man
When you push her around?
Do you feel better now as she falls to the ground?
Well, I'll tell you my friend, one day this world's going to end
As your lies crumble down, a new life she has found

A pebble in the water makes a ripple effect
Every action in this world will bear a consequence
If you wade around forever you will surely drown
I see what's going down

I see the way you go and say you're right again
Say you're right again
Heed my lecture

Do you feel like a man
When you push her around?
Do you feel better now as she falls to the ground?
Well, I'll tell you my friend, one day this world's going to end
As your lies crumble down, a new life she has

One day she will tell you that she has had enough
It's coming around again
(Repeat)

Do you feel like a man
When you push her around?
Do you feel better now as she falls to the grown?
Well, I'll tell you my friend, one day this world's going to end
As your lies crumble down, a new life she has

Face down in the dirt
She says, "This doesn't hurt"
She says, "I finally had enough"

Bella POV:

‘I was walking around the forest, alone. I looked around and saw nothing. I heard a crunching sound. I spun around and saw Charlie, smiling evilly. He walked up to me and grabbed my throat. I couldn’t run, so I stood there helplessly. I screamed as he squeezed…’
“Help!” I screamed. Edward came running over to me. I started crying. I realized it was all a dream but it felt so real.
“Bella? Are you okay?” Edward asked frantically.
“I’m. Fine. It. Was. Just. A. Dream.” I said between sobs. Edward sat by me and pulled me up onto my lap. My tears landed on his shirt but he didn’t care. He rubbed my back until my tears stopped.
“Bella? It is 3:00. School is over, so we should bring you to your dad’s.” Carlisle said, much pain in his eyes. My heart sank as I realized Charlie will be home in two hours. Edward moved me and got up. He helped me up and I walked over to Carlisle. He smiled and hugged me.
“I am so sorry Bella, but if I kept you we can be arrested for kidnapping. But we will do everything in our power to make this right.” Carlisle said with much kindness. He led me to his car and got me in the passenger seat. He pulled out and drove to my house.
When we arrived to my house, Carlisle hugged me again as I unbuckled. I walked to the door and opened it. Carlisle looked like he was going to cry as he left. I shut the door and started my many chores. First the dishes, then vacuuming, then dusting, then just plain cleaning. I finished by 4:30, so I started dinner. Well, for him at least. I made macaroni, steak, and peas for him. I finished just as he got home. I heard the car door slam then the front door.
“Bella!” he screamed, obviously drunk. I ran into the living room where Charlie smiled.
“You have been good today, so you get to eat.” he slurred, as he sat down a sandwich.
“Eat it before I change my mind.” he demanded, walking into the kitchen. I scarfed down the sandwich before I realized it tasted funny. I felt my throat and mouth burn and I ran to the bathroom. I threw up all the food into the toilet. I started sweating and felt dizzy.
“That will teach you to go to someone else’s house without my permission.” Charlie shouted from the kitchen. I flushed the toilet and realized it was ammonia. I went into the living room, where he was waiting for me. He grabbed a boot and chucked it at me. It hit my eye, knocking me to the ground. I couldn’t see out of my right eye, which meant I couldn’t see Charlie coming up to me. He kicked me in the ribs and pushed me down the stairs. I tried getting up, but Charlie came downstairs and put his foot on my throat.
“If you tell anyone else, it will be the end of you.” He said. He kicked me again and went upstairs. I laid downstairs until it got dark out. I rolled onto my stomach and crawled to the downstairs bathroom. I pulled my self up, wincing at the unbearable pain. I looked at myself in the mirror. I mean REALLY looked and saw why everyone gets worried. I had dark circles under my eyes from lack of sleep. I was also much to thin and bruises and scratches covered my body. I went to my room and put on pajamas. I laid on the floor because I don’t have a bed. I got all my clothes and used them as blankets. I fell asleep within a couple of minutes.
****
Charlie woke me up at 2 in the morning. I had to go do my morning chores. I carefully put the dishes away, swept and mopped. When I finished the whole house, it was 4:30. I was so tired, so I went to the bathroom and took a cold shower. It actually felt good, but it didn’t make me feel more awake. I got out and put my clothes on. I was wearing a huge sweatshirt with baggy jeans. I puts some make up on again and grabbed my stuff. I left at 5:30, which would get me to school at six. I will do my homework before school, as long as I am away from him. I was walking with my heavy backpack down the road when I saw a car rolling up to me. I started sprinting and the car went faster. I stopped, gasping for breath. The door opened and I saw Alice.
“Bella! Its ok, it is just us. Let us give you a ride to school.” She said, coming out of the car and taking my bag. I walked over to her car and got in. Edward, Alice, and Jasper were in there. I sat in the back by Edward.
“Hey Bella, are you okay?” he asked, grabbing my arm. I flinched and pulled away.
“I’m sorry, I am not used to people grabbing me. And I’m fine.” I lied at the end. His eyebrows furrowed. I could tell he didn’t believe me.
“Bella, you trust us right?” Alice asked.
“Sure. Why?” I answered. She didn’t answer, but instead took a sharp U-turn.
“School is that way.” I stated, pointing the other way. She laughed.
“I know. Trust me.” Alice said. She brought me to her house.
“What are we doing here?” I asked, confused. Edward pulled me out of the car.
“We are stealing you.” he said like it was nothing.
“Charlie is going to kill me!” I shrieked, tears streaming down my face. Edward lifted me and carried me into the house. I was crying because he touched my broken and bruised ribs. He set me down and looked at me apologetically.
“Are you okay?” he asked. I gave up and shook my head no.
“Carlisle, come here.” Edward said. Carlisle walked in and looked at me.
“Hello Bella.” He said, smiling at me. Edward pointed at my back.
“She is hurt.” he stated, worried about me.
“It isn’t that bad really.” I defended. Carlisle walked up to me and kneeled down.
“Let me see, I am a doctor, you can trust me, right?” he asked. I nodded and turned around. I sat down and he slowly lifted my shirt up to reveal my bruises.
“Oh, dear. Bella, what did he do?” he asked.
“Charlie threw me down the stairs.” I said, shivering as Carlisle’s cold hand touched me. He touched my broken rib and I sucked in air. He stopped touching me and looked sad.
“Bella, your rib is broken.” He told me like I didn’t know. I nodded and stood up.
“Let me bandage that up for you.” He said, reaching for my arm. I nodded and let him grab my arm. He walked me upstairs and brought me into what looked like a hospital room. He sat me down and looked for bandage. He brought a weird looking machine.
“What is that?” I asked. He grabbed a thing that looked like a mask.
“It will make you unconscious so you don’t feel any pain.” He said, laying me down and putting the mask on me.
“Count to ten slowly.” He ordered.
“One…Two…Three…Four…” I finished saying before I felt super drowsy. I slipped away into my dreams…
