My heart drops below my stomach and I get a lump in my throat. Everyone in the room is staring at me, and yet, I don’t care. Laura looks similar to Emma, blonde hair, same sharp features and has a twinkle in her eye.
“Nice speech Sara,” Laura says unimpressed. “Please get down from the table Sara”
“No,” I say.
“I’m going to ask you again and this time you’re going to do it, or I’ll have you dragged off the table, so please Sara get down from the table”
“No – “
“Get her will you” next thing, people come at me from all angles. Panicking, I grab a chair and smack someone with it. I hit Rebecca, taking this moment in I’m feeling sorry. I am grabbed from behind and pulled to the floor, and see Sam and Steph hovering over me. Laura marches over to us, and kneels down to my level. “Think your clever?”
“No not really”
“Hit your aunt, how does that make you feel?”
“Great actually, being lied to for 17 years now abused every day, threatened every day, no love only pain – “ she strikes me across the right side of my face.
“Shut up will you” she looks back. “You see you made her bleed, how do you feel now?”
“Even happier” she goes to slap me, but I punch her right in the nose. I quickly stand up and back off. She puts her hands to her nose, and sees the blood.
“I’m gonna kill her” pushing several chairs and tables out the way I attempt to run away.
“We wouldn’t want that now would we?” someone says from the door way, we all turn, and see Zoe standing there. Sam and Steph grab Laura while Kelly and Rachel grab me.
