Relationship Violence Story From Ambryn

by Ambryn
(Location Undisclosed)

D-- has been beating me for years and years. We live together but we aren't married. My family does'nt want anything to do with me. I don't have a phone, he works from home most of the time and we don't have wifi, I'm writting this from work which is a two hour drive from anywhere. We live miles and miles away from anyone else and most of the time I can barely walk from the house to the car. i don't have a licence, a car or any money at all. Besides, i can't supposrt three kids as well as myself. I came into his study yeasterday to talk to D-- and he got really pissed off.

"D--, sweetie?" He set down his pen with a click as if trying to control his anger.

"What. is it Ambryn? I'm working b***h! Can't you see that?" I stepped into the room a little more. I asked him for a thirty so our daughter could order what she needed to perform in a choir concert. He said no, so I sheepishly tried to beg him. He stood up and walked over to me, slapping my face hard, and told me to shut the f*** up. "How many f***ing times do I have to tell you to not come into my office unless it's completely important?" He shoved me into the wall and kicked my head, and that's when the beating began. And then he took off his belt and whipped me with it for what seemed like forever. I didn't stop screaming and begging him to stop even after all the times I was warned.

I don't know how to leave. Nowhere to go. No way to go anywhere. No money. No licence. No health. No phone or home internet. No friends or family.
