” Tell me a story Mommy”
Violet opened one eye and it found it’s way to the clock next to her bed.
Two in the morning her clock read.
She closed her eye .
” Please Mommy tell me a story. Tell me about the monster in the attic. It’s forever until morning and I can’t sleep.”
A little hand fell to her eye and gently lifted her eyelid open.
Violet looked up.
She didn’t have any children.
