Home

Before marriage, her parents said "This is not your true home. you have to go to your own home one day"
After marriage, whenever she cried, her MIL said "Show these tantrums at your own home and not here"

Finally, she found her "home" at the "shelter for battered women"

PS: This is my first try at the 55-word fiction. I have been reading them on a lot of blogs and wanted to give it a try. The idea for this post came from the title of Nancy's recent post.
