Where He Brought Me From
Chapter 5: Divine Intervention
5.2 Divine Intervention: The Right Time
“I’m trying Kash.” Jessica said. “My relationship with my family is so broken, it maybe beyond repair.” She went on. “Every time I think have forgiven these people they do something else to me that’s put me back in that place of hate.” She said. “I don’t understand why my own family has it out for me.” Jessica stated. “They have always treated me like the ugly stepchild and now that I finally feel like Cinderella they can’t even pretend to be happy for me.” She said.
Kash took Jessica by the hand and smiled, “Are you saying I’m your prince charming?”
Jessica laughed, “Yeah, so far.”
“So what happened, if you don’t mind me asking why don’t you and your family get along?” Kash asked.
Jessica sighed and put her head down to hide the tears filling up in her eyes. She began to shake head back and forth trying to fight back the tears.
“Its okay you don’t have to fight it go ahead and cry, just let it out.” Kash said. “You can tell me.” He said.
“I don’t know where to start.” She sniffled. “I guess I’ll start at age four when my parents got divorced and my mother remarried.” She said. Jessica wiped her eyes and looked at Kash. “I hated my stepfather he was mean and hateful.” Jessica said. “That man was verbally and physically abusive and my mom never said a word, he used to hit her and curse us all out especially me.” She said through clenched teeth.
“They gave my sister everything and ignored me.” Jessica said. “Then when I was fourteen my father died and things just got worse.” She went on. “They treated me so bad I had to wash dishes, iron their clothes for work and clean up the bathroom me and my sister shared while she never had to do anything.” She said.
“Then he started putting his hands on me first it was just grabbing me by the arm or putting his finger in my face then it escalated to dragging me down a hallway and choking me.” Jessica said as she shook her head. “I just wanted someone to stand up for me, I was looking for my mother to help me but she wouldn’t.” Jessica cried. “I don’t if she was scared or just didn’t care but I still hate her for that.” Jessica said.
“She still doesn’t understand how much my childhood affected me.” Jessica stated. “I was so tired of being abused and mistreated that I married the first guy that was partially nice to me.” Jessica said. “I would do anything to feel loved and he knew it, he used it against me.” She continued. “He beat me, he cheated on and he made me pay all the bills but I stayed because it was still better than home to me.” She said. “I started smoking weed and drinking just to make it through the day, I was losing my mind.” Jessica said. “I even had to check myself into a center because I was so depressed and lost.” She went on.
“Don’t worry I found you and so will God if you let him.” Kash replied as he hugged her.
