The Restoration – Episode Six
The dreams started that night. Disturbing dreams. Sam would half wake, then fall back.
Always a little girl.
A mother hitting and berating her, blaming her for the father leaving. It’s all your fault. If it wasn’t for you he’d have stayed.
Sent to her room hungry.
The mother twisting her arm till it broke.
Pushed down the stairs. Clumsy brat
The mother reaching out and pulling her hair if she walked too close.
Watching the mother break her toys. You shouldn’t leave things out.
Late at night, sneaking downstairs to pick though the garbage, retrieving a thrown away doll.
