I was only nine when the monster took my mama. Took her right out of her bed and stole her away to the marsh right outside my window. Papa said the monster saw how beautiful she was and fell in love.

I think differently.

But that doesn’t matter now, because I think the monster is going to take my papa, too. He waits by the door, muttering, and I think that maybe the monster poisoned him. Just like Mama.

She walked around, her face kind of empty. I think the monster will take him soon, too.

Or maybe it already did.
