I was so hurt that I could not defend my father, it was not actually his fault that I could not get admission into a private school but checking it the other way my dad could have done something about it if he really wants me to be in a private school, all this Went through my mind after I had an argument with a class mate,” you do not even know what everyone in school is saying about you, imagine!! The daughter of one of the richest professor in town is attending a public school and she is busy fooling herself that it a semi private school… It either your dad is a selfish man who does not know the importance of education or he just does not care about you” I was dumb folded, not because am some very cool child who does not know how to insult people when they demand for it, I once lived with a very insultive mother and even though I never had the intention of ever been like my mother but some part of her lives in me, but some things she said were really true because I felt my dad never really cared about anyone’s happiness but for his bottle of beer he would do anything to make it happy, I got home so angry that day and I started misbehaving to everyone in the house, “Would you pass me the remote control? Step mother said, am I your house help(I murmured), what did you just say? But by the time she could raise her head up I was already in front of her pointing the remote almost directly into her face, but she just collected it and sighed, stupid girl, “the day is coming when you will leave this house for good” she has been saying that for the past six years and am still in my father’s house, “Useless woman! She will just open her mouth and be saying rubbish to me, she has not given birth to someone as old as I am, how can she know how to treat me, a hot slap that landed on my cheek was what made me feel the presence of my stepmother, am in for it.
