Battered Mind : Excerpt Chapter one Book one The Beginning

Battered Mind     Part one

Sadie Carlyle awoke in a state of despair when she finally opened her eyes, and noticed that she was lying in what appeared to be a large hospital bed.   Then,  she  immediately began screaming very loudly.  She was so out of control that a strong sedative was required to calm her down.   Her long red hair looked so dry, as the sedative took immediate effect.  It was not too long before her greenish eyes began to close again, her skin looked so pale as the nurse applied an soft pillow under her neck.   This had been an intense few day for Sadie.   Her emotions were so intense that you could see the puffiness in her swollen eyes from all the non-stop crying.   It was so hard to believe that Sadie was once a very attractive green eyed red head that captivated a room with her profound beauty.  After a few minutes the nurse noticed that Sadie was bleeding from her nose.   As this was going on, the nurse quickly called the doctor .   In the meantime Sadie still  asleep began  to let her mind get whisked away.

 “Here he comes again screaming at me always  terrifying me why can’t he see that he is hurting me!”

“Mrs. Carlyle , Mrs. Carlyle!” called a man in a dark suit.  Suddenly, Sadie was no longer in  the hospital bed.   She was in a courtroom.  Her heart was racing and she appeared very agitated and confused.   However, she decided to take a deep breath to calm her nerves.   As always once again her thoughts run away with her..

Sadness is approaching it feels very dark-  I feel it pulling me closer to the end of a cliff and then I am drowning!”

Can you please answer the question now,  said the impatient District Attorney.  As he paced back and forth you could hear the silence in the packed room.   She tried to stay focus and not let her thoughts run away with her again.  Well, Ms. Carlyle, he stated once more.  Sadie took a deep breath and then said,  “Yes I am so sorry Mr. Mason”, she  began to say said in a rather soft and apologetic tone.“ Please forgive me, again”  she said. “ You see I am rather nervous being up here and talking about such a traumatic event and I was letting my nerves run away with me, Do you mind repeating the question?   He paused and then once again asked, “ What happened on the night of May 27, 2010?”  “Now I hope that was clear enough for you!” he added in a more sarcastic tone.  Charles Mason had been a District Attorney for the State of North Carolina for 16 years now and he was known to win all of his cases.  The man had been divorced three times and finally said that he just was not going to let a woman bury him, even if it meant he end up alone.  However, he was fair in matters of the law and just wanted to get to the truth.   “ Well, on the day you are referring to!” Sadie continued and then after a brief pause then blurted out “ I killed my husband!”   As she said that, the court room went into a big uproar.

This is when the presiding  Judge Vicente Mikos knocked on his gavel and asked everyone  to quiet down.  “ Please!”,   Silence he urged.  “ Now, please continue 

Ms. Carlyle.”  Again, She began to let her thoughts get away from her again.
