I’ve already exhausted every resource at the library. I have to go further.

What I’m doing is incredibly dangerous. I won’t be able to leave the house for a while.

09-16-17_9:17:04 PM.png

I’m doing it during the day. They’d be awake if I came at night.

09-16-17_9:23:45 PM.png

I’m afraid to leave her for so long, but she can take care of herself now.

09-16-17_9:26:17 PM.png

Besides, I need the book.




09-11-17_5:22:39 PM.png

All my work, all my care, and they got her anyways! They didn’t take her, but it won’t matter- she’ll go to them when she comes of age, now, if I don’t fix this fast!

09-16-17_7:24:59 PM.png

She’s still eating, still breathing. They haven’t got her yet.

09-11-17_5:25:22 PM.png

I have no choice. She’s old enough to be on her own, and mine enough still so as not to let them in.

09-16-17_7:26:37 PM.png

I have to leave the house. I knew this day would come, when I would need to go forth and find the things she will need to know. I just didn’t think would ever need to know them.

09-16-17_7:29:29 PM.png

I have to go to the library.

It may be her only hope.


We had her birthday today.

09-11-17_9:37:52 AM.png

She’s seven now. By all rights, she should be starting school.

09-11-17_10:00:26 AM.png

I’m teaching her everything I know. I bought a school workbook from the supply store.

09-11-17_10:02:26 AM.png

Still, she’s going to start asking soon. She’ll want to know why she can’t go outside, why she can’t answer the door, and I won’t have good answers. What will she believe?

09-11-17_12:25:05 PM.png

The night knocks are becoming more and more frequent. They wake me up, and I have to remind myself that they can’t come in if I don’t let them.

09-11-17_12:27:11 PM.png

I’ve made sure of that.


She comes first. Always.

09-05-17_5:11:10 PM.png

She’s the center of this world I’ve made, this crystal childhood palace built on lies.

09-05-17_5:12:35 PM.png

The other day she got out at night, I don’t know how. I must have forgotten to lock the door.

09-05-17_10:32:20 AM.png

I’m just glad they didn’t find her. I don’t know what I’d do.

09-06-17_7:35:00 PM.png

My Child

She’s growing too fast.

09-05-17_10:05:28 AM.png

I can’t protect her forever.

09-05-17_10:07:43 AM.png

It’s hard just keeping her little world together.

09-05-17_10:10:49 AM.png

But I love her. I’ll love her forever.

09-05-17_10:15:17 AM.png

She is the one.
