Back Then

Back then, I played in the sun and turned brown every summer. My dog and cats were my closest confidants. I hugged them and held them all the time, but even more when I was sad or scared.

Final Night-Chapter Sixteen-Captive

Morgan came to in in a strange place. She was in an empty room. The carpet beneath her was coarse, obviously cheap and not the cleanest. The walls were freshly painted over, and the scent of it lingered in the small space. The window on the other side of the room was boarded up with what appeared to be cardboard. She was still wearing what she had been when Andre had turned on her. Her...Read On
