Mother, Chapter Two

"Please, Momma, I don't want to go to Kristen's to spend the night. They don't have electricity or running water. You know how I hate the dark. Please?"

Angel's tears ran down her pretty cheeks. They ran like dewdrops on a rose. Her hands were clenching and unclenching. Young Angel was a big girl now at eight years old.

Emily reached down to her daughter and kissed her forehead. "I have no one else to look after you right now. Both parents are home and will make you feel as comfortable as you can."

Emily packed a small overnight bag with Angel's things. Emily kept a tight leash on Angel and held her to higher standards than the others. It was a cool June day it had been raining most of the day.
