Storyline

Maddy is fifteen and everything in her life feels totally dead. Last night she tickled her brother so much he cried. Maddy felt strangely satisfied. Her boyfriend Daz can be fun but all he wants to do is get her into bed. His older brother sniffs around her. She knows what he's after, and she kinda likes the game. He makes her feel different. Maddy relents under Daz's pressure, but everything falls apart. She wants to crawl under her covers but she needs a release. As the cigarette it touches and burns into her flesh, she loses herself in the pain and feels the control that will take her into tomorrow. Written by Jim McRoberts
