“You know that this is not normal,” her father said as she sat and watched through the open shades of the closet door.
Darkness surrounded her, but she wasn’t afraid. She was more scarred at what was unfolding in front of her with her mother and father.
“What do you want me to do about it? There’s nothing I can do, and you know that. She’s the only one who can stop it from happening,” her mother fired back.
She watched as her mother crossed her hands across her chest and walked towards the window in front of the sink.
She heard her mother let out a deep sigh. There was worry in her eyes. There was fear. Her head hung low in disappointment.
“This is all your fault,” her father said before she watched him storm out of the kitchen. For a moment she heard muffled words coming from the dinning room before they vanished.
“How dare you blame me you son of a bitch,” her mother called out. She watched her mother break down. Tears stained her face. Her mother turned her back and began to wash the dishes that were stacked up in the sink.
She couldn’t see her face any longer but she could hear her cry.
Melody sat quietly in the closet. Her small body huddled against the wall. She couldn’t make a sound. Couldn’t let her mother find out that she was there.
Fight’s like this were something she witness more and more often. She was just a child but she knew that it was all because of her.
Melody opened her eyes and tried to focus on where she was. Her face was wet and she gasped for air as she sobbed uncontrollably.
She was in her bed, in her room. Her hands shook as she grasped tightly at the bed sheets. She pulled them up and buried her face within them.
Her heart was breaking all over again. Every time she awoke from dreaming about that day, about her parents she had that same feeling. Heaviness surrounded her heart and made the tears fall hard. She’d been too young to understand what was going on, but she knew that things were never going to be the same. That was the day when the world that she knew around her had changed. It was her day, her tenth birthday. It was the day that she died.
