Jessica - creative writing

Extracts from this document...


Jessica I had always felt as if I were trapped in this place I called home. It was like hell living with him, my father. I could hardly breathe without him knowing. There had even been times when he locked me in the house just so I wouldn't associate with Christians. He was just so overprotective; he never really cared about me. All he cared about is himself and his money. Sometimes I thought that I might as well not even be here. He didn't treat me like a father treats a daughter but like an owner treats its dog.

My father was just being petty and stubborn. Nevertheless I didn't think he would go as far as attempted murder to settle a grudge. I'm quite glad he lost all his money, especially considering half of it went to me and Lorenzo and our future together. Even so I think it was a bit unfair to make him change his faith. Considering that he had to give up all his money and dignity, which he deserved, but then to make him give up his faith is somewhat unreasonable. Now my life is so much simpler and I am so glad that my father is no longer part of my life. I can now look to the future Elizabeth Sima Toorani (10F) ...read more.
