Claires P.O.V:

Shane is the most amazing guy I have ever went he's caring,funny and real good with kids...his little girl Carla is a total sweetheart and her and Sam have beem getting on great. It's been a month since our first date and after that we went out a few times and soon started dating and life has been great since. I was watching Sam play with her barbie dolls when the doorbell rung...I got up off the sofa and opened the door to reavel the last person I wanted to see...Nick...he was back...but for what?

"W-What are you doing here Nick?"

"To come and take you and Sam back home with me"

"Urr..no your not...this is our home now"

"What!?"

"You heard...I've got a well-paid job and Samantha is enjoying school and I won't move again ever espicely with you...I will not put myself and Sam in that danger situation ever again"

He looked at me for a few seconds and then burst out laughing

"Ahh..good one Claire...you were alwas so funny that's one of the many things I love about you" He reached out to touch my hand but I moved it out of his reach.

"Ahh..come on Claire I love you, you know that"

I scoffed "you don't mean the first thing about love let alone know what it means and besides I'm dating a guy who knows how to treat me right and not throwing me down staris only to make me have a miscarrige"

His mouth dropped open

"Your dating?"

I nodded

"YOU INCONSERDIRET LITTLE FUCKING BITCH I GAVE OU EVERYTHING AND NOW YOU JUST THROW IT BACK IN MY FACE AND BSEIDES WHO WOULD EVER WANT YOU OUR AN UGLY PIECE OF SHIT THAT ONLY I GOT DARED TO GO OUT WITH AND YA KNOW WHAT I WAS FUCKING MERDITH STONER RIGHT BEHIND YOU FUCKING BACK AND YOU DIDN'T EVEN FUCKING NOTICE EVEN WHEN I LEFT OBVIOUS CLUES THEY SAY YOUR SMART BUT WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO REALTIONSHIPS YOU ARE AS DUMB AS A BLOND BIMBO!" Nick screamed at me just then I fely a tug on my jeans and looked down to see Sam clinging to my leg looking at Nick with curious eyes

"Daddy..why you shouting at mummy?" Sam asked in a complete inocent voice. Me and Nick looked at eachover and then I answered

"Nothing baby it's ok mummy's ok go to your room and put a dvd on Mummy will be up in a sec ok"

Sam nodded her head and me and Nick waited till we heard Sam's bedroom door close...then Nick lashed out and punched me, kicked me, spat on me and just tossed me around the room...I felt to defensless to fight back and then threathend me that this wasn't the last I have heard of him and then he left...I tried to move but couldn't so I started to cry and then I went into complete darkness.


Sams P.O.V:

When I put my dvd in the tv I head banging noises from downstaris but I knew mummy wouldn't want me downstaris yet. I waited for mummy to come and watch the roundabout with me but she never came so I went downstaris to see my mummy sleeping on the floor with red gooey stuff on her face she looked hurt so I did what m mummy told me to do in things like this..

I got the phone and phoned Shane my mummy's boyfriend...I told Shane what happened to mummy and he told we to stay where I was and he will be here in a mintute.

When Shane arrived he asked me what had happened and I told him and then he got his phone and rung the hospital to come and help mummy.


Shanes P.O.V:

I knew something was wrong when Sam rung me she sounded confused and scared so I got over there right away as Carla was with Alyssa. When I got there I saw Claire on the floor unconsious and blood covering her face I asked Sam what happened and she told me about Claire and Claire's ex were arguing as he had come here and that her dad was shouting at Claire and then Claire sent her upstairs and then she heard banging and came down to find Claire passed out.

I phoned the ambulance and they came quickly enough and Alyssa, Eve,Micheal and Alyssa's husband came along and I told them what happened and that they are still assesing Claire...so Alyssa offered to take Samantha with her to stay until Claire comes out of hospital I agreed as Claire would want that right now.

A few hours later and Claire is awake...she has a broken wrist and broken a couple of ribs and has alot of bruises but will recover in a month or so. The police came and talked to Claire and she told them everything what had happened.

"Hey..how you feeling?" I asked her

"Hmm...alittle better but not much"

"I can't believe I wasn't there for you when Nick came round"

"Shane don't it's not our fault Nick shouldn't have come back...I've asked for a restraing order against him and the police agreed with it and are going to help me get it so yeah everything's good and thank Alyssa for having Sam."

"No problem" Then an idea came to me

"Claire...what do you think about moving in with me and Carla?...I mean I know we have been dating for just a month but you don't know if and when Nick comes back and the next time you may not be so lucky and he might hurt Sam"

Claire stayed slient for a few seconds before answering

"That is a great idea..but do you mind?...I don't wan't you to feel like me and Sam are a burden for you"

"You and Sam have never and will never be a burden to me at all so that's setteled then"

"yep"

"great, love you"
"Love you too" she said with a smile before going to sleep
