I love my mummy, but I don't get to see her often. My step mum, Ann, is okay, but I love mummy more. I love my sisters and brothers too, we're a big happy family.
We live on a farm far away from town and we get to play in the yard every day after our lessons with Ann. Dad says the town is full of monsters and we have to stay here so they can't find us.
I hear dad and Ann fighting again, he gets so mad that he slaps her across the face. She wants to get rid of mummy, but daddy isn't finished building his perfect family yet.
I sneak into the small shed where mummy lives. Her chains rattle as I curl up on her lap and cry. She cries and says that she has to say goodbye soon, once the last little one leaves her belly.
She wants me to run into town and find a man in a blue uniform to save us, but I can't, the monsters will eat me up if I leave the safe space.
She cries harder, but I tell her it's okay, she's safe here, there aren't any monsters on our farm.
