The Drunk Underneath
I’ve know this man for ten years of my life. Then came my tenth birthday, when I get a call from someone who you thought was a part of you saying “I don’t want you as my daughter anymore.” In fact, my family and friends told me not to trust him or get close to him, but I did anyway and got hurt.

Such as drinking more than two beers while my brother and I are in the other room, or start yelling and throwing things in the house when he get mad. Things started to go downhill from there. My mother decided it was best for him to distant himself from my brother and I until he got things straighten out. But I refused to not see him.
My father in my eyes where the perfect guy anyone would want and not trade it for anything in the world. But as I was growing up and becoming a woman, my dad started to drink more and become someone I was scared of. For instance, I was showering at his place over one weekend when I was seven, and pounded about five to six beers at a time and became really violent. He has a knife in his hands and opened the door to the bathroom and tripped over his own feet and cut me through the shower curtain. At that one moment...
