To an outsider, Patrice's family is the perfect image of the American Dream. Her stepfather is a successful lawyer, they live in a mansion and she has always had everything she ever wanted. 
  
  But behind the well kept facade, violence and abuse dominate Patrice's life. Marcus rules his family with an iron fist and does not tolerate any form of opposition or disobedience. And one night, he takes it a step further - and there is no one around to come to Patrice's aid.
  
  
  This Novella can be read independently from "Living With The Choices We Make" however, it contains references to the main story and it would be beneficial to read both for completeness.

Wow this chapter was so well written. I felt every bit of her pain :( ... really excited about the next update and road to redemption. Great work you awesome writer =D
If not a pedophile than what is he besides an abuser? Patrice was only 14 so I find it hard to separate him from that. Would he fit in the categories of pervert or child molester? I know the basis I of the story is abuse but reading the pedophile part was new info for me.
Awwwwwwww ughhhh I hate Marcus soo muchhhh and please update :)

I feel like this book really touches home, this was a very strong chapter and I can't wait to see how you can manipulate Marcus into a monster even more than we already have seen xD
