I may have been in a bad relationship, but I was in one. When you are young, you are already so naive. So why would I question anything? Time has gone by and we had already been together for a couple of years with a few bumps in the road. Although the longer we was together the worse things got.
He was not a good guy for so many reasons. Yet he was my everything. He was always getting in trouble with the cops and he was not always completely faithful to me. As the school year came back around I had already lost interest in it. I was not good at school and I know a lot of it had to do with him. I did not want to do my homework because I wanted to spend my time with him. If I was not physically with him I was on the phone with him, which kept me from giving my school work a 100% of my time. I started to skip school with him.
I remember one time we skipped school. We both was in the hallway and I was at my locker getting my things. He came up to me and told me he was leaving. He said I should go with. Of course I was hesitant, but after a little bit I caved in and said sure why not. My parents both worked and it was a nice day so I figured my dad would not be home. So we took the back road to my house. We walked the railroad track and then got back on the back roads.
When we finally arrived to my house I had noticed my dad was still home. I was freaking out. Where was we going to go? What are we going to? Just when I thought we was for sure caught I had notice that the factory across the street from my house was having their employee appreciation day. They had tents out with tables and chairs under it. We walked over and sat down. No one questioned us being their. They talked to us like they knew us and they let us eat. I do not think they caught on or noticed we did not actually work there.
Once my dad finally left we went inside and hung out. Just when I thought things was good and thought we was having a great day, he started in on yelling at me. He was mad that we had to be out in the open for so long and that we could have gotten caught. It was not my fault though. He wanted to skip. I thought my dad was gone for work I did not know they he was starting late. What went from a good day turned into a really bad day.
It seemed like everything I did was wrong. That I could never do anything right to him. He made me feel so horrible and was calling me names. Little did I know that everything he was doing to me was emotional abuse and was unacceptable.
