Last night my step father came home late, again. He smelt of alcohol, again. He came into the house and started yelling for my mum. I walked up to him to try and tell him that my mum was asleep upstairs - but then he hit me. Not just a slap - a full blown punch into my face. This is not the first time my step dad has been abusive to me. He is also very abusive to my mother - but when i discuss leaving with her she always says no because she loves him. I don't see how she can love someone like that - what can i do? If i went to the police or anyone my mother would never forgive me. But i can't live like this - i can't see my mum get hit anymore, i can't be hit myself anymore.
