Jess flinched when her father backhanded her, but she still stood her ground. That is, until he tossed her onto the bed. "She'd be lucky to have you out of her life for good." she grumbled, her tone quieter than it had been before. She coughed when the dust billowed around her. What had once been so comforting to her as a child, had turned into the exact opposite.
Daddy walked over and looked at MJ,
"Apologize for interupting me and you'll be left alone. If you don't, you'll get punished." he saod. He reached out and rn his thumb over tehc orner of her mouth, wiping blood away from where he split her lip when back handing her.
Jess was tempted to bite her father when he wiped the blood from her lip, but quickly decided against it. It would only make him angrier. Her whole body was trembling from exhaustion and fear. She looked up at him with a daring look. "I'm not sorry, nor will I ever be sorry." she growled through gritted teeth. Jess knew this wasn't a smart decision, and she knew her father would spare no mercy.
Daddy put his hands on MJ's shoulders, pressing his full weight on her so the bed creaked,
"Listen child, you will apologize for what you did wrong...you interrupted, now apologize." he said. He pulled a lightler form his pocket and lit it, holding the near her face.
Jess winced in pain as her father pressed his full weight onto her. He was strong, much stronger than her. She felt the soft warmth from the lighter her father lit. It was somewhat comforting, but she knew it wouldn't be that way for long. "I'm not apologizing, I didn't do anything wrong." she growled. At this point, she wanted to take as much attention away from Eris as possible.
Daddy looked at MJ,
"You're trying to distract ne aren't you?" he asked, he didn't give MJ time to respond. He punched he rin the stomach adn lifting her up carried her into the bathroom, putting the toilet lid down he put her tied form there. And looked at Eris, who was lying on her back heaving. The whole front of her clothes as soaked and back was a bit wet too. Her hair was plastered to her head and water dripped off her face.
Daddy picked her up and dragegd her ove rto the stil tub, he pushed her under again.
"Eris, MJ won't apologize for interupting our little bonding time so I guess it'll have to contineu with ehr watching...wouldn't want her to be lonely now would we?" Daddy said.
Jess gasped loudly in pain as the wind was knocked out of her from the punch. She didn't even have time to react or protest as her father lifted her up and carried her into the bathroom. Eris was in there, completely drenched. There was nothing more she wanted than to get out of there as soon as possible, but she was tied in place. She shrieked loudly when her father pushed Eris under the water, and tears streamed down her face. "Let her go! Stop! I'm sorry okay! I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry!" she screamed.
Daddy kept Eris under water and looked over at MJ,
"Oh you don't sound repentant at all. I want a heartfelt apology, for everything you've ever done to ruin my life." Daddy said, smiling sickly. Eris was still struggling, but it was obvious her struggles were getting weaker.
Jess wanted to cry out in frustration, but she knew it would be no use. She desperately did not want to apologize, because she felt she had nothing to apologize to him for. However, this wasn't about her anymore, it was about Eris. She had to save Eris, or die trying. "Dad, I'm sorry. I've been a real screw up, and I'm sorry I've made a mess of your life. I'm sorry I took Eris away from you, it wasn't right of me." she explained, as heartfelt as possible.
Daddy thought for a few moments and then pulled Eris out just as her struggles seeme dto stop. He threw her on the ground and turning her on her side hit her hard, overly hard in the back so she spat up water and started gasping hard.
"See, good stuff happens when you copperate." he siad, now ignoring the shivering coughing girl on teh floor.
