Have been siting on this cold floor it’s more than an hour, my body have no strength to get up this is the fifth time he has has beaten me so badly that it will be hard to even see myself in mirror slowly I start to have courage to get up but as I get up I fall again a cry of pain coming from my mouth .

This is the story of Jessica , a young women in her 20’s being beaten by her husband, they had love marriage were dearly in love and are still but it seems only one sided now, Jessica is not dependent financially on him or is forced to live with him then why she choose to stay…. Let’s find out

“Jessica he beats you so badly look your lips are bleeding, your arms have marks of cigarette and your legs are bruised that it’s hard to even walk.” said her friend Anna she had visited her when her husband was away and was trying to put medicine on her wound she is a nurse in a health care center .

Jessica just looks down, unable to say a word .

“we should call police, enough is enough ” said Anna, as she word come out, it seems like Jessica energy jump in from no where and she presses her hand on Anna

“no please no Anna you know he do not do it intentionally he loved me and still love me but you see its my fault I make him do this, I deserve this ,this is my fate. ” she kept saying that and told Anna to go back as its was time of him to come back. “Jessica I am scared to leave you what if this continues and it makes me lose you ” Anna said with trembling lips her eyes showing how dear Jessica was to her, “don’t worry he will never kill me, you go back before he returns I dont want him to be mad he don’t like your visits ” said Jessica and Anna left with giving her hug “be safe ” and Jessica said “Anna I love him that’s why I am staying or I would have left him the first time he cheated, the first time he lay his hands on me , the first time he burned my hand but my love for him or you can say I am so emotionally depended on him that I can’t leave him even if it leads to end my life ” Anna hugged her back and gave her an angry look “no death you have to live till we get white hair “and they both laughed
