Hannah and Grace-Ann were the only two children born to Janice and Dave Montgomery. Hannah was the youngest, and Grace-Ann two years her elder. Their mother worked as a waitress for a Thai restaurant near the house, and their father... well, let's just say he did all of his work from the sofa. Most every penny brought into the house was spent on his alcoholism; therefore, physical and verbal abuse was normal. He had threatened to kill Janice many times, bringing out knives and trying to scare the kids. Sometimes he was drunk, sometimes he wasn't, you could never really tell. The thing was, nobody was brave enough to turn him in after the numerous times he threatened them. Fear kept them prisoners.
One night, when Hannah was sixteen and Grace-Ann was about to turn eighteen, their dad came at Hannah. Janice was at work, and wouldn't be home till late. Grace-Ann came downstairs to find her younger sister pinned to the refrigerator, being held up by her neck. She lunged at her dad, trying to get him off of Hannah; he just dropped the younger girl and turned to Grace-Ann, cursing and shoving her to the floor. He got down and straddled her before she could scoot away, his hands wreathing about her neck. A moment later, he was on the floor, unconscious... Hannah had smashed his own bottle of whiskey over his head. She was shaking. They were both shocked.
They had to get out of there. They went upstairs, packed their bags, and took what was left of the cash in their dad's wallet, along with what they had saved up themselves. They went to the bus station, and caught a ride to the farthest place they could get for the cheapest price. It took them to Ackerly, Texas, a small town with a population of only 300 people. They got a cheap motel room for the night, and in the morning went out looking for work. The only experience they had was in cooking and serving, so the only option was really the local diner. The owner, Sammy Wyatt, and his son Lucas, offered them the job. Hannah could wait the tables, and Grace-Ann was in the kitchen. While they are there, they begin to develop relationships with the Wyatts, and the diner regulars. After a month, they fit right in as if they'd lived there their whole lives. But what will happen when their father comes looking for them?

You may have a character from Ackerly. But I won't be accepting a million of them. I like smaller groups.
