Bedroom Window

She didn’t really want to go, but it was better than staying home with him. Ever since Dani turned twelve she had to fight off her father’s advances. Most of the time she wasn’t successful.

She slowly opened her bedroom window to be sure it wouldn’t make any noise. Climbing out to the waiting car, her father came around the house just as Dani ecaped the window.

She took off running hoping he would fallow. Just as Dani reached the othe side of the street, she heard a car rev and tires squeal right before a thud.

Seeing her father lie motionlessness, Dani didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
