mistletoe and swine

Deena Hayward, 27, Newport Cuddling my daughter Shantayah, 3, with one arm and draping the other around me, my boyfriend Jonathan, 30, beamed for the camera. ‘What a lovely photo!’ my mum Claire, then 48, smiled, handing me back my phone. It was Christmas Eve 2015 and we were staying over at Mum’s house. We’d just put out a glass of milk and a mince pie for Father Christmas, and a carrot for Rudolph. ‘Let’s get you to bed,’ I said to Shantayah as she leapt around excitedly. Once she was settled, Jonathan helped me wrap the shiny bike and Minnie Mouse rocking chair we’d bought her. I’d known Jonathan since our teens, we had mutual friends. We’d only ever been mates but I’d secretly fancied him for ages. Gradually, things had changed. We’d started flirting on Facebook, finally got…

‘no one else will want you’

As the new year got under way, we fell back into a routine, Jonathan staying at mine every night. ‘It was just a blip,’ I told Mum. ‘Be careful,’ she warned, sounding unconvinced. And I pushed away any doubts… But then, one night in March 2016, I noticed that Shantayah was playing with Jonathan’s car keys – attached to a key ring I’d never seen before. My heart thudded. The photo on the key ring was of a smiling dark-haired woman. ‘Megan!’ I seethed, throwing the keys at Jonathan. The lying rat! Rather than making up excuses, his face flashed with rage. Grabbing my neck, he pushed me up against the wall. ‘Let go,’ I choked as I heard Shantayah crying. Without saying a word, he released me and stormed out of the house. ‘It’s OK, Shantayah,’ I soothed, picking her up. But…

stolen joy

Dionne Morgan, 34, south London Jumping up and down and grinning, my sister Joy, then 7, gazed at her new pink bike. And then she jumped straight on it! ‘You can’t ride it around the living room,’ I chuckled, wading through wrapping paper to give her a hug. It was Christmas Day 2005 and, as usual, Joy was the star of the show. Dancing around for me and our mum Carol, then 37. I’d adored my little sister since the day she was born, when I was 14. ‘Joy by name, joy by nature,’ I’d beam, scooping her up for cuddles. We both loved Christmas. Every December, we’d decorate the tree. I’d lift Joy up so she could put the angel at the top. She was always kind and thoughtful and, as the years passed, nothing changed. I moved out, but lived…
