 phoebe wipes the tears away from her tired, misunderstood eyes. once again her mother was out, serving her "business" to god knows who on the street. she had left the poor young girl to care for her sisters and little baby brother whilst the bruised and battered woman earned their bearings for the week, by the only way she could, the only way she knew. Ever since phoebe could remember her mum had played the role of the local prostitute, forever stumbiling home in the early morning, tripping through the door of their tiny, claustrophobic apartment. Eva allways drank so heavily too, partially to help carry her through the pure insanity of her world but also for the inevitable fact that she was an alcoholic. Although the woman could never admit to it, phoebe was left to clear away countless discarded bottles along with lethal appearing shards of glass daily and toonight was no exception. 

 

only a few hours earlier the young, mature eighteen year old had arrived home from college to find her mother laying sprawled across the filthy floor, in a pool of her own vomit. she had tried her hardest, pleaded with Eva not to go out, 'you need rest', she had urged, but nothing ever made the woman listen. Toonight the children had all been so good, better than usual. they were all in bed for once by ten and seemed to be sound asleep as the clock crept closer to midnight. In a way phoebe was pleased as she didnt need the deafening arguments with cassie, the relentless screaching from ava and the dreaded fight with tommy, to get the boy into his pyjamas. in another way however, the place was airily quiet with no one up to keep phoebe company. as she picked up the last broken bottle she could find, and tried hopelessly to budge its unmistakable stain from the grim carpet, the short, slim,  brunette sighed and gazed out at the menacing street. the kids were all asleep now. Eva was out, pobably with some guy completely and utterly stoaked to take advantage of her services and her father... well she knew he was'nt coming back any time soon. Kevin had left for a reason. As an innocent child,  Phoebe never had unstood this but now she knew how the man couldnt cope with all of her mothers issues. he had quit his job to take care of her at first but after years of effort into their relationship, and endless talk of rehab (that never happened) Phoebe could only guess her father had abandoned his faith in their family. 

the dark stormy sky was lit only by the few functioning streetlights illuminating the pavement. no stars were shining, nor moon beaming down to comfort the girl as she wondered when Eva would finally arrive back. there was no point in staying up to greet her, as then phoebe would never sleep but for some reason it didnt seem right going to bed at this moment. The brunette thought for a second. It was nearing one thiry in the morning but she knew one girl she could trust. steph. stephanie was allways up ridiculously late and knew about her friends abominable home life. 

with only a mere seconds hesitation, Phoebe grabbed her mobile and steph's number. " hey, steph. mums gone out again. i really dont know if she will ever stop. This is getting so hard, trying to keep everything together", she exclaimed helplessly, whilst brushing a hand through her long wispy hair. " hey, hey hey its okay...", replied steph quickly, not wanting to hear her friends strained, wimpering voice, just before tears "why dont you come out tommorow, with me? you cant stay locked up in that grotty apartment all the time."

"um.. okay then, but where should we go?"

"come back to acting", steph suggested quickly, "we need you there.."

"ugh fine", agreed Phoebe a little frustrated but willing to give the run down yet promising club another try. she was rather good in the threatre after all, though before leaving had seemed like the best thing to do for the childrens sake, so the thought of joining again did leave a guilty tone to her mind. 

whenever the pair worked together though, they channeled so much emotion and could allways acheive brilliant roles in all the plays they practised for, so after a long, chatty conversation together they both went of to sleep excited for the next day, thinking it would be just like old times. 

they could'nt have been more wrong...
