home I don t ever want to see Mum again Or Bethany or Kyle or grizzly little Gary And I especially don t ever, ever, ever want to see Terry.This notebook used to be the Official Terry Torture Manual I invented a brand new torture for him every day It was a lot of fun But then sneaky Bethany found the notebook under my pillow and showed it to him He turned the pages very slowly, taking in all my carefully coloured diagrams of torture machines I d spent hours on the Terrible Tooth Tweaker and the Excrutiating Ear Enlarger and the Beastly Big Bum Basher.Terry looked at them He nodded He drew in his breath Then he ripped the pages out and tore them up into tiny pieces It was obvious he wanted to tear me into tiny pieces too.Mum tried to turn it into a joke and pretended it was just my warped sense of humour That kid of yours is warped all right, said Terry He stood up and unbuckled the heavy leather belt round his jeans She needs teaching a lesson once and for all Mum tried to laugh him out of it, acting like he was just kidding She said he didn t really mean it He was just trying to scare me We were all scared When he raised the belt Mum yelled at me to run for it I didn t run fast enough He got me on the side of my head and broke my glasses and cut me all down my forehead.Mum cried Bethany cried because it was all her fault Kyle cried too though he likes to make out he s so tough Gary cried, but that s nothing new I didn t cry I stood there with blood trickling down into my eyes and I clenched my fists and stared straight at Terry He looked a bit fuzzy without my specs but he s got these really cold green eyes that you can t miss I focused on them Staring him out He was the one who broke first He looked away, ducking his head like he was ashamed.He went straight out down the pub even though Nan and Loretta and her little Britney and Willie and Patsy were coming round for tea It was all laid out on the living room table ham sandwiches and sausage rolls and leftover chocolate log and mince pies and fruit cake, though Kyle and I had nicked most of the icing Bethany s off sweet stuff at the moment because she thinks she s fat Well she is I annoy her no end because I eat heaps and stay thin as a pin Mum says it s my nervous energy.No wonder I get nervous living with Terry.But I don t live with him any , hurray, hurray, hurray He did me a huge favour hitting me with his belt Nan took one look at me and went white My God, Treasure, what have they done to you I just shrugged I m not a tell tale like some people Bethany and Kyle and Mum held their breath Even little Gary stopped grizzling.My nan s not daft Terry did it, didn t he she said.Her voice was very quiet in the hushed room She looked round, her eyes flashing Where is he He s out, Mum But it wasn t really Terry s fault It was an accident Accident my bottom, said Nan.Well, she said something ruder and alliterative We have learnt about alliteration at school I am Top Girl Which isn t hard because heaps of our kids have got problems Our school has got a bad name But I won t have to go to it any I shall go to a school near my nan s I am living with her now.I can t believe it Oh, I love my nan sooooo much She got it all sorted She made me stand under the light in the living room and gently pushed back my sticky fringe and peeled off the plasters Mum had stuck on Nan swore again when she saw the size of the cut Go and get your coat, Treasure, she said quietly What are you on about, Mum said my mum We re off, said Nan She nodded at the rest of the family Come on We ll have tea back at our place, once we ve taken Treasure up the hospital Hospital Mum whispered She needs stitches, Tammy How did he do it Did he knife her No, no, it was an accident, his belt His belt, said Nan She hugged me tight Right Bethany, you get yourself upstairs with a big carrier bag and get Treasure s clothes packed She s staying with me from now on We all stared at Nan Jump to it, Bethany Nan commanded Yes, Nan, said Bethany, jumping She s not her nan but she does as Nan tells her We all do You can t, Mum, said my mum, starting to cry.I thought she meant I couldn t stay with Nan I nearly cried then, because I didn t want Mum to feel I was walking out on her She needed me She s useless at keeping Bethany and Kyle under control and she doesn t always get up for Gary in the night And then there s Terry He hits her too.I decided maybe I should stay.But it turned out she didn t mean that at all You can t take Treasure up the hospital, Mum They ll want to know how it happened, my mum sobbed And then they ll get on to the Social maybe even the police They ll come down on Terry like a ton of bricks Nan held me even tighter She could feel me quivering So it s Terry we ve got to think of, is it Our Treasure can get scarred for life but never mind her, let s all worry about Terry Kyle was looking puzzled because he doesn t get sarcasm Gary was wailing now, his nose running down into his mouth Mum looked awful too, her mascara smudged and her face so white it made the pink rouge along her cheekbones look like clown make up It s just a nasty nick, Mum pleaded Take Treasure for a little holiday, it s maybe all for the best but don t cause trouble, Mum, I beg you Call yourself a mother said Nan She bent down, scooped Gary out of his baby chair, checked his nappy and grimaced Here, try and take care of this one at least She thrust Gary at Mum and yelled up the stairs to Bethany.Bethany came running with a carrier bag spilling clothes Nan snatched it from her and gave my shoulder a squeeze Right, pet, we ll be off Mum was so busy crying she didn t say goodbye to me Kyle just gawped But Bethany suddenly put her arms round me and gave me a big hug, even though we ve hated each other ever since we ve been stepsisters I m sorry, Treasure, she said.She must have been truly sorry because when I unpacked the carrier bag back at Nan s I found she d put in her own black designer T shirt, the one with the little grey squirrel on the front She d got it as one of her Christmas presents from Terry and she d gone berserk on Boxing Day when she d found me secretly trying it on It fitted perfectly even though I m nearly two years older, because she s big and I m a little titch She had told me to whip it off quick or she d tell her dad but now she d given it to me.I m wearing it now with my black jeans and my crocodile boots I look seriously cool OK, the boots are last year s and so they scrunch up my toes a bit but I don t care We women have to suffer to look stylish, says Nan when she kicks her high heels off and rubs her own sore feet.My nan is young for a grandma and very, very glamorous She wouldn t be seen dead in the usual granny gear My nan wears tight, lacy vesty things and short skirts that show off her legs She looks especially glam when she teaches her line dancing class She has all these little matching outfits I like the white one best white waistcoat with rhinestones, short white skirt and white leather cowboy boots with spurs Can I go to your line dancing class sometime, Nan I asked her Of course you can, darling I reckon you ll pick it up in no time Patsy goes, don t you, pet Patsy grinned at me Yes, it ll be great, Treasure Patsy is being so kind to me She s so, so different from Bethany Patsy doesn t even seem to mind that she has to share her bedroom with me It s not much bigger than a cupboard so it isn t easy She s only got a single bed so Nan fixed me up with cushions and a spare duvet on the floor It seemed all right to start with but in the middle of the night the cushions kept sliding sideways.Patsy heard me rootling around, trying to reorganize my bedding Here, Treasure, come in my bed, she whispered There isn t room It s OK, I m fine, I whispered back No, you re not Come on, it ll be fun She paused and then giggled Do as your auntie says, Treasure I giggled too Patsy is only seven but she is my actual auntie She s Nan s youngest child My mum is the oldest Though she acts like she s never grown up, Nan always says.Patsy is Nan s favourite She calls her my little surprise She s Pete s child and Nan is nuts about him I can t remember him properly but I think he s big and bear like Patsy is little and fluffy, like a baby bunny She s got lovely, long fair hair She wears it in a ponytail or a topknot with a cute little set of butterfly slides at either side The only funny thing about Patsy is that she walks with her feet pointing out like a penguin, but that s because she does a lot of ballet She does tap too and acrobatics Nan s thinking of sending her to a special stage school soon as she has the talent and the looks to make it really big.You d think Patsy would be a horrid little show off but she s not a bit I ve always liked her lots though we haven t met up much as I ve lived all over the place with my mum and then, when Mum settled down with Terry, she and Nan kept falling out But I like all Nan s family and I love Patsy second best to Nan.I squeezed into her bed and we cuddled up like spoons Patsy felt so little and springy compared with Bethany We weren t usually on cuddling terms at all but if Terry and my mum were having a fight in the middle of the night it got so scary that Bethany and I would huddle together, the duvet over our heads to block out the noise Patsy s hair tickled my face but I didn t mind I reached out anYou d have to be insensitive and iron hearted not to be smiling through tears at the end of this powerful emotional rollercoaster The
