not one monster… but two

Sumayya Miah, 23, Luton As Jakhir blew on the dice in my hand, I burst into a fit of giggles. ‘Good luck,’ he smiled. Shaking the dice, I launched them across the board. ‘Four!’ I shouted, moving the plastic princess four spaces along. ‘Well done, sweetheart,’ Jakhir said, wrapping his arm around my shoulder. It was August 2004 and I was 6. Jakhir Hussain, then 21, was my stepdad’s cousin and had been living with me, my mum Lucinda, then 25, and my stepdad Luke, then 44, for a month. Every day, Jakhir and I played board games, coloured drawings and watched films together. Being an only child, I loved the company. ‘Sumayya! I have goodies!’ he’d yell, arriving home with a bag of sweets. Two months later, in October 2004, I was watching TV when Jakhir called me…

Do you fancy hanging out with me next weekend? he’d typed. Sure! I wrote back excitedly. And within weeks, we were inseparable. He was my first real boyfriend, my first love. I’d never felt happier. Then, in May 2010, we discovered I was pregnant. We were only 17, and had no idea what to do. I came from a strict Christian family and knew they’d be furious if they found out. But we had no choice in the…
