Tayla was crying and when he looked at her, she could see he was crying as well. She was confused. He wasn't violent towards her and furthermore it seemed as if he made love to her. There were no angry words and he didn’t hit her. When he pulled away from her, he tried fixing her clothes and helping her to her feet. He kept saying sorry over and over. When she was standing up steadily, he took her back onto the road and walked her to the nearest street light and left her there. What he didn't know is that she was just a few houses down from her own home.
She stood under the streetlight and watched as the dark figure staggered into the night. She walked slowly and somewhat painfully to her house. How was she going to explain this to her parents, she knew her clothes were dirty and her face was flushed. She pushed the door and as soon as she closed it her father spun her around and slapped her in the face.
"Where have you been you slut? Out in the street with those boys? Look at you, you're filthy."
"I missed........" Another slap.
"Be quiet in my house, no dinner for you, go clean those clothes and get to bed." Her father stepped aside to let her pass and he smacked her behind her head as she did. Tayla refuse to cry all she could think about was the handsome man who invaded her body with his. At this moment she would have rather gone with him than come home to this misery. She was so conflicted. She should hate him but she didn't.
The next few weeks were gruesome, her father was even stricter than before. One evening the bus was late and she got home 5 minutes after 5. He father punched her in the stomach and her mother stood and watched. No dinner for her again.
Five weeks has passed since her incident and she knew she was in trouble. She was late and she knew her parents would throw her out when they found out. At this point all she wanted to do was find the stranger and tell him he was going to be a father. She searched high and low asked everyone she knew. No one seemed to remember or even had seen this man. Giving up she went home and decided to brave the weather. She would not be giving up her baby.
