Chapter 2
Morning routine.

I woke up the next morning because of my stupid alarm clock.
Luna was curled in a small ball beside me.
She was a deep sleeper where in am a light sleeper.

I get up and sneak to the bathroom for a cold shower. We only have cold showers, because we can't afford worm ones.

But I am saving up with the money from my jobs so we can move out and away from our abusive father.
One day...

After I shower I cross back into my room to get changed then wake up Luna.
I pull out the rusty draws from our small dresser and choose an outfit for babysitting the smith's children since it's Saturday, before doing my hair in a sexy looking messy bun.

"Luna, Luna sweetie it's time to wake up" I say gently shaking her awake.
"Nooooo" she whines, "one more minute" I laugh knowing she would sleep in the hole day if she could.
I grabbed her and set her on the ground.
She looks at me and pouts out her bottom lip with big puppy eyes.
"Can you at lest pick me an outfit to wear, so I can impress the others?" She begs.
"Of course" I say ruffling her hair, before she goes to take a shower.

I pull out the draws again and get something descent for her to wear.
I grab her a top with jeans and a zip up jersey, because it's pretty cold outside since it's 7:00.I lay her cloths out on our bed and go down stairs to make waffles.

--------5 minutes later---------

"You should wear your contacts to day" I hear Luna's voice, and look up to see her sitting on the single stool opposite where I'm working on making our breakfast.
"Well I was going to but you know I don't like wearing them on the weekends, so I packed some just in case." I said smiling at her.

Oh. There's only enough for one. I think looking at the single waffle.
One waffle left.
I wasn't really hungry... lies.
It will be for, Luna.
This happens a lot. Were we don't have enough food, so it goes to Luna since she's growing.
She always wants me to have it though, but I always end up winning, so she has it.

"YOU B#TCH! WHERE WERE YOU LAST NIGHT WHEN I WANTED MY DINNER!?"
I give Luna 'the look' and she hides under the bench, as our father rounds the corner to the kitchen.
"Dad, I had work" I say slowly and cautiously.
He glares at me and stumbles to stand in front of me.
"I DIDN'T ASK FOR YOUR PETTY EXCUSEs!" he sneered.
"But I did, you know this" I said trying to stay calm and not shake in fear.
"Don't you DEAR SPEAK TO ME LIKE THAT!!! NEVER" he growls, "No body loves you, your stuck here! Your a wast of space and air!" He whispered in my ear with venom and I winced at his words. Knowing they were true....

Stop.

Think about Luna.

Her worm smile, that can light up a city.
