I tried talking to him, even begged him to listen to me just once. But he slapped me, my brother, who had never laid a finger on me. I never thought he would do this to me.

I left that place and sat on a nearby bench. What is the point of living when the ones you love don't want you anymore? Here I was thinking of killing myself but that would be unfair to my unborn child.

I remembered Margaret gave me her number so I called her and I told her I needed help, she came and picked me up with her car and took me to her house.

When we got home I told her what had happened, she was not happy about the way my family reacted and treated me.

"They are your parents, they should believe and trust you more than your husband, I mean they should have asked you what happened instead of reacting like that," she said in anger. We sat in silence for a few minutes. I decided to tell her that I was pregnant.

"I knew you were pregnant. I saw the way you protect your stomach. I can already say you're gonna be a great mom!" I was stunned. She promised she would help me with anything I needed, I was so grateful.

~A Few Days later~

I have been with Margaret for some days now and everything has been going great, though I was still sad, I had to think about my baby.

Here I am making lunch thinking about the message I got from my husband's lawyer telling me to come to his office to sign the divorce papers and finalise the separation.

I told Margaret about it and she advised me to go sign the divorce papers since he won't change his mind.

So here I am in his office with my ex-husband to be, his lawyer asking me if I needed anything from my husband.

I replied, "No! A whore like me does not need his money. I can survive on my own". My ex-husband seemed shocked by my outburst, even his lawyer was.

He told me to think about my decision but my answer was still the same. I asked him where to sign .He showed me and I signed it and Ethan signed his as well.

As I was about to leave, Ethan said, "So you are going to stay with those fools you slept with?"

I turned to my ex-husband and told him "You will regret this, what you did to me, turning my own family against me, I will never forgive you"  and I left.

Leaving his office I saw Margaret waiting for me outside. I was so glad she was here. When we got home she made dinner and I did the dishes and told her goodnight.

When I woke up Margaret was not at home, but she left me a note saying "I'm going to the market to get some groceries"

After taking my bath I went downstairs to eat only to hear the doorbell ringing. I went to open it and the lady standing there turned around and asked

"Hmm, who are you? ''

"I'm-I'm-" I stuttered.

"Who the hell are you?" she asked again.

I just stared at her, "I'm a friend of Margaret" I replied.

"My mom has no friends" she sassed back.

She asked me where her mother was and I told her she went to get some stuff from the market.

She looked at me and asked, "What's your name? I'm Amanda by the way".

"I'm Raven"

"Wow you have a pretty good name and you are very beautiful."

"What are you doing here if I may ask?"

"Well-", I started, but Margaret came in.

She was so happy to see her daughter. They hugged and cried and they talked for hours. I was staring at them.

I envied their relationship. Because mine was gone for good.

She told Amanda why I was in her house.

Amanda was furious when she found out about my family and what they did to me.

She came closer and held my shoulder saying "Your ex-husband does not deserve you". Yeah, right he didn't, I nod.

The next day I went to the hospital for my check-up and everything was alright. When I got home I noticed that Amanda and her mom were arguing about something.

So I asked them what was going on. Amanda said, "I want my mother to come to stay with me in Mexico but she refused," she said glaring at her mother.

Margaret replied, "I am not going anywhere, I cannot leave Raven in this condition". They continue to argue. I was just staring at them.

So they concluded that I should go with them to Mexico because I needed it but I was reluctant to go so I told them I would think about it.

The next day I went to visit my brother again, to explain everything to him, but he shut me down and told me he doesn't want to have anything to do with me. I tried calling my friends for help but no one was picking my calls, no one wanted to see me, I even went to see my parents, my younger sister was there but my parents refused to talk to me.
