“Don’t you dare look at him in the eye, as we dance with the devil tonight"
Jane was a lovely child, in a nuclear family. Her parents were two Christians, who were very prized in the locale society. Her father were a hard working man, trying to find the right balance between his family and work. Her mother, a very religious and superstitious woman, working as a secretary for the district. Her first living years, were the best of her life, and it looked like she would turn out good. Her life involved a lot of routines of praying and seek for forgiveness from the lord for ‘lost people’. She got good grades and played football. But all that changed when she hit the age of six. Afterward her birthday party, see had a argument with her mother about some gifts that she didn’t want, and those ones she hated. Angry as a six old can be she ran to her room and slammed with the door. At the same moment her father were unfortunately coming down from their attic, climbing down a stair. When she slammed the door it caused the stair to fall over, and her fathers necklace with a cross, hung firmly on a catch for the trapdoor for the loft. He choked to death. When her mother found his husband dead, hanging from the attic, she went mad. Instantly she blamed her child, as she thought were a little devil send to test her. She went for Jane and began screaming words in latin at the little girl, while pulling her by the hair down the stairs and outside, were she kicked the girl on the ground at left her for a while. Jane sat scared in the grass, crying and hiding her face in her hands, as her mother sat up torches around here in a circle. That night her mother tried exorcise the devil out of the child. The next day Jane woke up in her bed with burn marks and scars on her body, and she decided to ran away. Quickly she pack her things and walked on tiptoes out of the house. She ran away to one of the places she new best, the church. And when the priest found her, she told him about what her mother had done to her and he send her away into a foster home. Of course the foster home weren’t like living at home, but for Jane it were better then being with her mother. Living there made her life better, and she almost forgot what her mother did to her. She became as before, just with a slightly fright for religious things, especially crosses. Just when she started on her last at high school something else happened that would turn her for the worse. One day when she had been argued with a religion teacher about god and been late out, she cycled down the road to home in the dark, when she heard fire engines, ambulances and police cars. She speeded up and came home to a horribly sight. Her foster home stood in flames. The next day when the news of her whole foster family were gone, she ran way in the believe that it were her fault for talking down about god. She became depressed, her only friend the fire, that always were there for her when she needed. Jane got send to the Helenridge, when she was caught trying to burn her mothers house down. They had her there for a year, before she came in another argument about something with god, and she believed that the Asylum would burn down, so to stop that, she stole some rope and hang herself in the library.
