Quiet Things No One Ever Knows
Quiet Things No One Ever Knows
There are things that no one ever knows, things that no one wants to know, things that are ignored untill they destroy you and everything around you. Only then are they discovered. This is Meghan's story, please pay attention. Who know's, maybe it will teach you something, and save someone.
Meghan was thirteen and in the 7th grade. 7th grade wasn't a very big change for her. She was still the most popular kid in school, the kid everyone looked up to, the kid everyone wanted to be. But they didn't look beyond her pretty face. In her big blue eyes, if you really looked you could see fear in them. If you really got to know her, you could tell how insecure and terrified she really was. School was just a place to run to, to excape to, where she could be safe, a place where she was loved and admired.
At home it was a different story. Meghan's family was very wealthy, but that didn't make a difference to her. The fighting, touching, abuse didn't cease, nothing not even money could stop it. Since Megan was born her parents had faught. She didn't know why they just didn't get a divorce.
They both saw other people and they both Knew it. Meghan and her younger brother Topher just ignored there messed up family as best they could.
Meghan's father would come home drunk from the bar every night and beat on her for no reason untill she would pass out. In the morning her mother would ask her where she got the bruises and she would just tell her lies like she has gotten then from falling out of bed or gym class. If she would tell her mother her father would probably kill her. It was rare for her mom to ask her though. Her mom had more important things to worry about than Meghan. Her mom ran her own company and she was always working. Meghan and Topher never saw either of their parents because their dad was always with other woman. He would be gone for weeks at a time.
Meghan took care of Topher. She walked him to school and was always late for her own class because of it. She always helped do his homework so her assignments were always late. Topher was all she had left of a family so she made sure to keep him happy so he would not turn out like her and end up hating life. Sometimes she just wished she could run away and find a new family and start all over again. But she knew that it would never happen.
Meghan found a different way of excaping, she would lock herself in the bathroom and slit her wrists. She would watch her blood ooze out and dream of heaven and what it was like to fly free without any worries and problems. She would be dead right now, but for Tophers sake she tried to stay alive one day at a time...
At school Meghan felt normal, she felt like she had a perfect family like she used to. She felt like a normal kid. But when school was over and it was time to go home she felt alone again.
That year Meghan flunked 7th grade, Her parents never found out. The next year Meghan changed, she finally gave up on her life and her brother's. She hung out with people twice her age, she even had sex with them, she took drugs, slit her wrists, peirced herself, stole from stores, forgot about everything right, and did everything wrong.
Her parents finally split. Her mom, her and Topher moved out into a small apartment. Her father got everything, the house, the money, the cars, every last thing. Her mom lost her job. They had nothing. Her mom became a drug addict and was dying slowely with every breath she took. Topher was at a friends house evernight, trying to excape like Meghan did...
Meghan got pregnant at age fourteen. During birth the baby died. Meghan was soo underweight her body couldn't take it. Meghan finally flew free... she excaped her life. Her nightmare finally ended. Meghan died at age fourteen because no one cared, no one took time to understand her. No one cared, no one wanted to care. So maybe you can save someone. Maybe someone needs a shoulder to lean on... maybe you can save a life... maybe even your own...
