But I knew just because the girl didnt cry for help, she was crying inside her, she was begging for help with her eyes and hoping that someone will do something. What I am trying to do now is to mend the relations with my sister and brother, call them once a week I live 200 miles away and I can accept it if I have to be lonely to pay my bad deeds in the past, but I am really trying now to see other people as honest as I know how.
