When the abuse starts part 2

Terrell is dark and six foot tall.  Back in the day he was the man.  He worked inside the jail with all the prisoners.  Even though people knew that he worked for the Sheriff Department he was well respected by everyone even the prisoners.  He was well known in the town.

Terrell was much in love with Elenor and then one day he just decided that she wasn't enough for him so he started drinking more and messing with all kinds of women.  he started cheating and staying out all night.  One night he came home drunk and decided to beat Elenor while my sisters and I were sleep.

About four o'clock in the morning he came home drunk and woke Elenor up accusing her of cheating.  She had just got home about an hour before he did, after a night on the town with her girlfriends.  I really don't know why he was so angry.  I ran to the door because all the screaming woke me up and I could hear Elenor saying "lower your voice before you wake up the kids."  "Fuck you bitch, you better tell me who that nigga was I seen you dancing with at the club."  "I really don't know who that was, he asked me to dance and I said yes.  I don't know why you're so angry when you've been seen riding that bitch around town in our car," she yelled.  he didn't like her answer and he slapped her.  Elenor fell to the floor and yelled, "you black bastard who do you think you're hitting on?"  he slapped her again and again.  I guess that was not enough for him because he fell on top of her and started punching her and yelling at her, "you do what I tell you to do and you don't give me any lip." "Ok," she said crying softly.

The next morning she woke up and cleaned up the house, fixed us breakfast, got dressed and fixed her makeup to hide the bruises.  She woke us up to have breakfast and to get ready for the day.

Here is your discussion question for part 2.  Thank you for your participation and your support.

Have you ever been abused by someone that you loved? Did you stay or did you go?
Would you stay with someone that would beat on you? Why?
Are you still interested in reading?
Is the characters explained well?
