Hey guys, thanks 4 da reviews. Um, I guess now's the part where I do the next chapter huh? Well, then lets get to it.

"WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM"

"MY PROBLEM IS YOU"

"WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE TALKING TO LIKE THAT?"

"I THINK I'M MARIA MONTEZ, AND I THINK YOU SHOULD SHUT THE HELL UP"

"OH IS THAT WHAT YOU THINK."

CRASH, BOOM, CRASH, SCREAM


Gabriella Montez sat on her bed crying. She knew that her parents were fighting again. And probally over her. They always fight over her. She knew her mom would be up in a matter of minutes. After every fight her mom had with her dad she would come up and beat her. Well I guess I deserve it. Gabriella thought. If I would just do things right and stay out of their way she'd leave me alone.

The truth was that Gabriella's mom only hit Gabriella because she knew she could. If she tried to hit Rick, he'd hit her back and seriously hurt her, but since Gabriella was smaller she couldn't fight back. If only Gabriella knew.

When Gabriella heard footsteps comming up the stairs she got ready for the pain that was about to come. She waited while she heard the door to her room being opened. When she saw her mother she saw bruises on her arm and a black eye.

She walked over to Gabriella's bed. Gabriella flinched because she thought she was about to be hit. But what her mother did next suprised her. She pulled her into a hug. Gabriella felt herself crying into her mother's shoulders. "Shhh baby girl, it's going to be ok." Her mother said trying to calm her.

Gabriella finally stoped crying and looked into her mother's eyes. Maria took a deep breath.

"Look Gabi, there is something I need to tell you."
