STRANGER - PORCELAIN DOLL


THE CHANGE



Trevor brushed Julie's beautiful long blonde hair, cautiously taking his time with long slow strokes, so as not to catch the brush in any knots. He did so while humming to her in her ear and then would place her hair in a perfect braid. After, he would dress her into a frilly little dress, calling her his princess as he kissed her. This was the routine each morning and she hated when he did that.

After his morning session with her, he would do his own daily routine to prepare for his day. As with her, he would be meticulous in how he presented himself. When he finished he instructed Julie of her day's chores and how he wanted things done. Trevor also reminded her that bad people were outside and we're always looking to take little girls like her, so she had to stay really quiet and avoid the window in order not to be seen. Julie looked down at the floor and answered with "Yes, Sir."

He pulls her chin up and told her to look at him when she answered, or you will be corrected. She nodded staring through him, as she was afraid of his bad temper.

He kisses her one more time and would leave locking the door. She watched him leave and did wonder where he went dressed in a suit and tie? Something to do you with helping other kids find new mommies and daddies.

Julie did not know why, but there was something that made her feel uneasy especially the way he held her. It was not a way dads held their daughters now many shows. She learnt a lot from TV.

The TV was her teacher of what life was like outside of these barred windows in the living room. It was her only friend and it told her that Trevor might be a bad man, but Julie was afraid of having to find another family. She did not want to be alone, so she wanted to please him so that she wouldn't be. Like Trevor said there were bad people outside.

Hours passed and Julie did what she was instructed to do and she did it without complaint. Vacuum, laundry and preparing for supper. She also picked out something out to wear that she knew would appeal to Trevor. Julie felt uncomfortable undressing in front of him, but he always was insertive in being present.

Though today she felt tired and crampy while washing the bathroom floor Julie. She clutched her stomach and quickly sat on the toilet as she thought she had to go to the bathroom. It was then she noticed the evidence of blood in the bowl of the toilet.
