He stayed hidden from the world underneath a ratty light blue blanket. Small fists clenched the thin reminder of a happy past as glass shattered over his shaking form.
The loud angry voice echoed off of the walls of the crappy room in the apartment building. Squeezing his eyes closed to boy wished with all his heart to see his mother's face one more time.
A cry silenced his thoughts as something hit the floor.
Yet he stayed hidden from the danger of the world, protected by his blanket.
