Society Killed The Teenager
"Shit." Mum muttered.
"POLICE OPEN UP!"
"MUM! What's happening." I paincked.
"Tia, Move your arse and go hide!" She hissed.
"Ya deaf or somting?! Go!"
BANG BANG. "If you don't open this door we'll have to ram it down."
I ran up stairs and hide in my wadrobe. I was shaking, my heart was beating and my palms were sweaty...Mum's going to get arrested...
"Shawn! Hide the drugs now!" My mum shouted to her latest boyfriend. I hated the guy so much, he beat her, her abused and treated her like shit. I don't know why she's even with him...maybe it's 'cause she's always out of her mind on dope.
"POLICE! POLICE!" The fedz yelled as they bust the door down.
I heard loud footsteps running up the stairs and the door swinging violently open. Shit, Shit, Shit. "Search everywhere for drugs." I heard a poilce offcier command. I felt the wardrobe door open. In my head I kept, praying and praying. I nearly wet myself. I held my breath as the doors opened. I looked up and saw a police officer looking down at me. He dragged me up and forced my hands behind my back.
"CAN YOU NOT TOUCH ME LIKE THAT!" I shouted.
"You have the right to remain slient. Anything you do or say can be used against you in a court of law."
I kissed my teeth nice and long and he dragged me down the stairs and shoved me into a police car where my mum and her boyfriend were.
"We're in deep shit shawn." My mum muttered.
"It's all you're fault you dirty whore." He kissed his teeth.
I blocked both of them out and just closed my eyes. Lord, why me?
*A few weeks later*
I was tired of the constant trials, I just wanted this all to be over.
I saw my mum and her boyfriend coming out of the court room. My mother's face was tear-stained and she looked a mess. I stood up as she walked over to me with to officers in tow.
"Mum what happened?"
"I'm being sent to jail for 5 years."
"WHAT!" My heart dropped. What am I going to do?! I don't have no family connections or nuffing apart from ma grandma in Barbados wtf am I gonna do!
"EXCUSE ME! YOU CAN'T LOCK UP MY MUM! ARE YOU SERIOUS SHE ANIT DONE NUFFIN!" I started shouting and I was getting dirty looks from everyone in the court, I couldn't care less.
"Can you calm down." one officer said "you're mum has been found hiding ilgeal drugs and we have camera footage of her and her boyfriend dealing it."
"AND DO I CARE! WHO AM I GONNA LIVE WITH IF SHE'S GONNA BE IN PRISON."
"A lady in a suit will be here soon she will talk to you shortly about where you're going to be living."
I feel slient and watched my mum being taken away, 5 years...Wow...I didn't know what to feel, I just went into shock.
I sat back down with my head in my hands and thought about my life. Why did it have happen to me. Why?
"Excuse me." A voice called. I looked up and saw a lady in a suit, she had blonde hair cut short and looked at me sympathically. "Miss Harris?"
"Yes." I snapped.
"Come into my office." she said softly.
I followed her without a word and sat down.
"What's gonna happen to me?" I asked shakily.
"You're going to be taken to a care home."
"YOU'RE NOT FUCKING SERIOUS!"
"Excuse me? That's what has been arranged Miss Harris."
"YOU MUST BE SMOKING CRACK YEAH CAUSE I ANIT GONNA LIVE IN NO DUTTY CARE HOME." I screamed.
"Miss Harris could you please lower your voice."
"WHY SHOULD I!" I stood up and screwed her. I started to get angry....I felt my body shaking "YOU CAN'T FUCKING MAKE ME!" I took a chair and flipped it over. "YOU CAN'T MAKE ME!" I took the glass cup on her talbe and threw it at the wall.
"Miss Harris!" she gasped.
"YOU MUST TAKE MY FOR SOME TRAMP!" I screamed as tears ran down my face. I took the picture of her family and smashed it on the floor. "FUCK YOU, BITCH!" I ran my fingers through my hair as screamed frustated. I sat on the floor and cried, getting everything out. I was angry at the world, I was angry at myself. The lady crouched down next to me and embraced me.
"Why did I have to have such a crappy life?" I whispered.
"Believe me I've been in your situation, everything will okay in the end." I comforted.
At that moment I actually believed her but my life went downhil from here.
