It was time to fight back.
Time to live.
Too much of my life had already been taken from me by a man that should have protected me. At the hands of pure evil I have lived in fear. When most young women were learning to love, I was fighting to live.
I had broken free of the hate.
Finally getting the chance to feel what real love was, but with all good things, bad times seem to follow. At least for me it does. My name is Payton Walters and I refused to allow them anymore of my freedom.
I will not fall…
Not this time.
Yet another amazing masterpiece, by C.A. Harms. I loved the chase, the love from afar and finally the ability to embrace the chase.
Payton's mom abandoned her at a very young age, leaving her with a very abusive father. Physically, verbally and mentally. This left her broken and feeling like no one could or would love her, the way that she should.
Her best friend Casey and her family took her in as much as possible. One fateful night, when things went too far, Payton chose to seek out the help of Karen, Casey's mom. From then on out, she became a part of the family. This brought her closer to the man that she has loved from afar. Casey's brother, Dylan.
Dylan also loved Payton from afar, but never acted on it. He had never come out and expressed his feelings. It wasn't until another man expressed interest in her, that he realized that he had to come forth with his feelings. This was also the time frame that someone unexpected decided to TRY to be part of Payton's life again. The last person that she wanted or needed in her life. It was at a time where things were really looking up for her.
The thing is .. Dylan will protect her at all costs. No matter the person, he refuses to allow Payton to get hurt. Who has come waltzing back into Payton's life? What is the shocking surprise that this person holds? And will Payton accept the apologies?
I will forever follow C.A., as she never seems to disappoint. I read anything she writes and I always finish with such a great feeling. Each time I pick up her latest, I never want to put it down. Her tales are intriguing and mind gripping. Make sure to check out Clash today!!
I was eleven years old when Maggie, my mother, left. Just packed her bags and walked away. She just couldn't deal with it anymore; the hate and anger was all too much. But there was something I would never understand. Why did she choose to leave me behind? It was something I often wondered.
That was seven years ago.
Seven long years of dealing with the backlash of her absence. My father had always been a broody, irritable man—extremely unapproachable. I guess that was one of the reasons my mother chose to leave. That, and the fact he was a heavy drinker. Alcohol, to him, was like breathing; it was something his body had to have to survive. His perpetual intoxication almost always led to a fight between them—a physical fight full of anger. For days I would see the marks of those disagreements gracing my mother’s beautiful face. He tore her down whenever and however he could. I remember lying in bed at night wishing I could stop him, hoping for someone, anyone, to take my mother and me away to safety.
At all costs I found myself doing whatever I could to avoid him. Though he never lay a hand on me before Maggie left, things changed afterward. He became even angrier and more violent; I never even thought that was possible. Those nights of terror I used to listen to my mother live through now became my own.
It didn’t matter what I did or how much I abandoned, in his eyes I still screwed everything up. He blamed me for all that was wrong in his life; it all fell at my feet.
Soon it would all be over; I had plans. All I had to do was finish these last few months of school and I could escape forever. No matter what it took, or how many jobs I had to work, I would be rid of John Walters.
