Second chance“YOU!” T Charles screamed as Thomas was saying goodbye to Lillian. Both Thomas and Lillian could see their father was furious.-Shit,- Thomas thought as he saw his father’s expression while he was walking towards them.“I don’t want trouble” Thomas said taking a few steps back and held up his hands.“I need to get back to work” he added and T Charles grabbed his collar.“I thought I told you to stay away from here!” T Charles screamed and slammed Thomas into the wall.-This will be bad,- Thomas thought and he was right. When T Charles was done and walked into the house, Thomas was lying unconscious on the ground. The cold March-wind brushing over him.Thomas started stirring as he heard a noise. His head was killing him and his body was hurting. The cold ground and chilly wind didn’t really make him feel any better. Slowly, Thomas got to his knees and started focusing on the noise.
