She is well aware, this is not love. She knows because she had it once. Where she was cared for and free to be herself. She understands this more than he will ever know. She knows what it is like to be acknowledged and respected, it is not here. She demands what she can not be given. She will not stop until she is heard. Every blow makes her dig deeper into her soul and makes her fight harder. She will not be broken.
She started this fight without any intentions of giving up. He rubs her nose in it, kicks her, hits her, shoots her with a pellet gun, the battle has only begun. Finally at long last, the call is made, he can't take her anymore. She is going home.
Weary from her battle, her emotional wounds exposed. Blaze curls in a tight ball, scared and in shock as the terrors of what happened to her unfold within her. She is home, where she was born, but it has changed. Gone are her brothers and sisters and the fun of being together. She feels lost. Mommy and Daddy tend to her emotional and physical scars, soaking her with their tears. They understand. They understand more than she will ever know. Just a shell of herself, she fought so hard to be back here, she test them the only way she knows how. She barks and barks. Never a hand was laid on her and she proves their love is forever.
