He ruined my life

My mum and dad separated when I was 12. After that she began to hate me and my sister (who was 7 at the time) because we were her ex-boyfriend’s daughters. A few months later she brought in one of her old school friends to live with us. Although we didn’t like him, he was initially very friendly so we tried our best to get along. However, as time went on, he began to show his true abusive side and would often physically and verbally abuse us. He is a very strong guy and my sister and I are abnormally skinny, so we would always get hurt. Earlier this year on my sister’s 11th birthday, he dragged her into her room and said “I’ll show you something special.”
I heard her screaming and crying and after a few minutes, he walked out. My sister was on the bed with blood all over her legs and she covered her face as she sobbed. She ran away from home after that incident and after she was gone, his next target was me. It was more painful than anything I had ever felt, and I was bleeding uncontrollably. He took photos of me and threatened to spread them if I ever told anyone about this incident. This continued every day for a whole month and he would often bring his friends along until I also ran from home. I live with some relatives and friends now, and I have only seen my sister twice in the last 7 months.
