Karen’s POV cont.

After eating I laid down on the bed to rest and I drifted to dreamland almost immediately.

I was woken up by the cold I started to feel. I opened my eyes slowly and the mattress was wet. I looked up to meet Andrew who had an evil grin on his face.

‘That’s what you get for disobeying my orders. I need that mattress dry or you will sleep on the floor tonight,’ he said and left.

I wonder if this man is really human or a monster in human form.

How will it dry and its already 4:00pm and the sun isn’t that hot?

With all the energy left in me I pulled the mattress through that back door. It is the shortest way outside. The maids were staring and mumbling at me and I felt embarrassed.

I sighed relief when I got outside and sat next to it.

I wish I had a dad maybe he could have loved me. I stayed with Cindy’s dad for a few years and he loved us both. Her mom at least had a heart of a mother unlike mine who is heartless.

‘Go to the market and buy those things,’ that familiar shout snapped me from my thoughts.

I didn’t have the strength to shout so I just stood up.

‘One more thing I think its better if you just trek,’ he said and left.

How on earth will I trek when my legs are in pain?
