The Restoration – Episode 7
Sam avoided the small bedroom the next day and finished tearing out the old kitchen instead. Tired and listless from not sleeping well, he had to force himself to keep at it. He went to bed early that night hoping to get some rest, but the dreams returned. And the next night. And the next.
Dreams not disquieting were rare. The girl sitting in her room, singing softly to her dolls, wearing her ring—her father’s present. Playing quietly, glad to be let alone. The room sanctuary from the abuse outside. The only safe and quiet place in her world.
