#FlashTag @monologging The girls heard screaming. Someone was hurt. They couldn’t go to him. The door was locked.

#FlashTag@ Their tiny fingers gripped the high window sill. They could barely peer in.

#FlashTag@j The lights flickered. Dark eclipsed white. The man stopped screaming. “How can he sleep?” Lara asked her sister.

#FlashTag @monologging “I don’t think he’s sleeping, Lara,” Clem said. She put her arms around her sister.# 

# @ They always said “white vans & candy,” never mentioning chatrooms, chloroform & regret. The man’s breath returned.

# @JemmaMarieBeggs “Come on,” Clem said, taking hold of her sister’s hand. They turned toward home. Behind them the door swung open.
