I'm sitting in the back of the ambulance watching as a sixteen year old girl cries while explaining to the policeman why her father beat her.
Her tears are falling onto her clothes leaving small salty circles.
While she is in pain, this isn't the reason why she is crying.
She uses up the last of our tissues.
Her jaw and chest are hurt where he used his fists and feet to beat her. I'd say that she has at least one broken rib.
I sit there listening to a long list of abuses her father has visited upon the whole family, from the seven year old up to his wife.
She didn't deserve this.
Her tears only stop once we reach the hospital.
