This family had a dark secret, and it was a known secret.
It’s her birthday today, but it’s not a happy occasion. There’s a predator at the table, a man who did as he pleased to her and her mother.
The perpetrator held his cup to his flesh and blood.
But she feels nothing but despair. As the candle goes out, this young girl decides that she’ll be a victim no more.
