My father's screaming again, banging his fist against tables, throwing books off shelves, and why you may ask? Because he's a fucken lunatic, that's why! Now I'm debating whether I should just call the police, or make a run for it. While thinking his fist comes flying at my right eye and I dodge just in time. Think fast Nathan, think fast, I kick him right in the balls then run straight for the door. I turn the door knob and ram myself into it but the door doesn't seem to open. Sweat's pouring down my face, teeth chattering, then I see my way out. His fist is coming at me again, and this time it's too late to dodge. When he punches me, he hits my jawbone and I can almost hear it crack, then the taste of blood fills my mouth. Damn bastard, I think lifting my fist and punching him in his chest. Well that was a stupid decision, his body is made like amour and now my hand seems to have a pulse. Then he grabs my neck cutting off my oxygen, it's too late to escape, I can barely breath now. The room is spinning and my body has gone numb, then I swear I'm a goner.

It's a while until a bright light fills my eyes and I slowly part them and I find myself staring at a hospital room full of operating nurses "You alright son?", the sound of Mr. Luis's voice calms me because I know that whatever happened at least he's here, he's always been there for me. I meet Mr. Luis my first year of high school while visiting my buddy Julian. He's a nice looking guy, caramel skin, dark chestnut eyes, razor cut black hair and has nice abs too. He isn't like any of my other friend’s dads; he's different in so many ways. Even though I'm not his son he takes his time to be there for me and watch over me. He's the real father in my life, unlike my lame accuse of a father. I let my eyes look around to answer his question, but my sight isn't too well, plus my mouth is numb, matter of fact, my whole body is numb.

I manage to make a groaning sound then close my eyes again. I lay back and let the nurses treat me, oozing some kind of liquid into me and reliving my numbness. Next they tighten the bandages on my forearms lifting the back of the hospital bed and handing me a bowl of warm tomato soup. I take big spoonfuls of sweet tomato sauce and chucks savory beef. A nurse begins to talk to me as she snaps off her gloves, “Now Nathan we couldn't get in contact with your father, but we did manage to reach your aunt. Mr. Luis here has been generous by standing by your side and helping us take care of you. Your aunt should be here any second with a clean set of clothes for you so just hang in there alright?" Everyone clears the room and I really didn't want Mr. Luis to go since I'm not one who likes unfamiliar places, but he just seems to nod, telling me that everything's goanna be alright. I didn't wait long though, a few minutes later my aunt Roxanne came rushing into the room, smothering me in kisses. Roxanne was a good friend of my mother.  I never remember her not being my life, she was always  there and eventually became somewhat like family. I remember my mother once saying I would call her my aunt at times, since her and mother were like sisters. Soon she became my aunt legally and things had been that way since. She never loved me less...or more...she was just that nice lady who visits me now and then. Roxanne’s a young fair skinned woman with short red hair and crystal blue eyes. Her face always the same, never changing.

 "Oh my God Nathan, look at you" she says examining my bandages. She hands me a duffel bag with my clothes inside. I scrabble through the bag of clothes and it's everything that I had in my dresser, some boxers, some shorts, and shirts. I just throw on anything and wait until the nurse comes back to escort me down stairs.

"We took a few tests and everything' seems to be fine just as we told you before, no major jaw damage, no major wounds. We put a few bandages on him and if he feels any pain we scribed him some medication.” I hold the small hospital bad in my hand and gulp. Watching as Roxanne sighed a few papers, then we walk out into the parking lot. I set my bag in the back seat of Mr. Luis's Honda Pilot and hop in the passenger seat. "Your father didn't answer the phone, but he's home boy, Roxanne saw him and the broken window when she was getting your clothes."

"I'm going over to get the rest of your things tomorrow and you're staying with us. I know what he did to you Nathan and it's not safe to live with him anymore. The best thing to do is to stay with us until we get you a place of your own ok?" I nod my head, but broken window?  I don't remember.... I buckle my seatbelt and Mr. Luis kindly says, "It's alright I don't want to pressure you boy...It’s ok if you don’t want to talk about it.” How could I possibly explain something I don’t understand? Just ...if I could...remember...
