This excerpt is from Chapter 15 of The Third Law of Motion by Meg Files, published by Anaphora Literary Press, 2011, reprinted here by permission of the author.
Lonnie had already started work as an inventory clerk in a new discount store just outside town, and we'd used the Christmas money from Dad for rent and groceries, so I didn't think he was only venting his frustration the next time he hit me. He had his reason-this time I couldn't say what had become of thirty-five cents from the ashtray where he kept change - and he ripped my red jumper and bruised my shoulder and arm. He stopped when I fell backwards into the wall, scared he'd hurt the baby, I supposed, and I thought I could use that move to stop him next time, at least until the baby was born.
