Sad, Lonely & A Long Way From Home

Extract From Chapter 18

An Abusive Relationship

I was definitely on the rebound when I started dating him. Andrew was around four years younger than me and I think what attracted me to him was that glint in his eye. It was a relationship destined to fail.
Andrew beat me on several occasions for which I had him arrested by the police but, each time, I dropped the charges and took him back. Again, he would beat me and it wasn’t just physical abuse, it was mental too. One night after an argument and him taking a knife to me, he later said sorry and tried to sweet talk me, but I wasn’t interested in his apologies anymore; they meant nothing.
