Much of my childhood is a blur; but as you know, I was seven when mum and dad got divorced. When mum, CJ, and I were on our own and I had occasional visits with dad, you’d sometimes come into the conversation.
Dad couldn’t take care of you all by himself, so he brought you to the animal shelter to try to find a new loving family for you to spend the rest of your days with.

The sound of footsteps and chatter coming from the top of the staircase is apparent. The first image that appears when firm-footing returns gives reason to all the excitement. A bright blue chest sits sliced in half diagonally. Remnants of earthy and contrastingly bright colored clothing seep out of the broken drawers, acting as the guts of the once beautiful dresser.
