Karen I donít think I have ever heard you this quite, are
you ok?

Huh? Yea Iím fine just debating something
She said looking back out the passenger window

Whatís that my love?

Do you think I should call my dad?

Why on earth would you want to call that man?

Do you miss him?
Brent reached over to hold her hand

No!!!
She pulled back

Then why call him?

I donít know I am just still so angry

How can someone claim they love you and then turn around
and hurt you so bad?
Itís been 15 yrs and I still have the scars to remind me
of the beatings and burns, the nights my brothers and I went
without food because mom was so weak from the constant blows
to the stomach to be able to give us anything to eat

I can remember the time mom and I spent the night in the
emergency room
Because of the burn left on my hand from him putting his
cigarette out in my palm
Karenís finger crossed back and forth over the spot where
a faded crooked scar could still be seen

If all you can think about negative things why do u want to
speak to him?

I guess to show him I was able to do it with out him
Do what?
Do what he didnít think I would
Made it through high school and med school in the tops of
my class
Found and married a man 180* difference of him
Had the most beautiful little girl
And am on my way to opening the family medical practice I
always dreamed of

Karen donít stoop to his level
Youíre in a better place now donít join your success
with the sadness of your past.

The storyline was a good one, but I did not see where it reflected the subject. Check your punctuation. I am also wondering why you used italics at times. I didn't understand the significance.
