A never-ending battle raged outside Jade’s bedroom door. She squeezed her pillow over her ears, as her parents hurled ugly, hurtful words at each other.
Jade sat up on the side of her bed, her legs dangling; she willed herself not to vomit.
“Stop,” she whispered as she covered her ears. Tears slid down her cheek. “Just stop.”
Having heard enough, Jade stomped into the center of the battle; arms outstretched, she stood between them. “Stop,” she screamed.
They looked straight through her as though she wasn’t there and continued their war.
I was right, she thought. I am invisible.
