They’ve had me here for hours. I’ve only seen them once besides the time they threw me in this room. That was about an hour after I was here. One came back in and took a picture of me, then gave me a burger and a bucket for what I presume is to be used as my bathroom. The accommodations are atrocious, but the screams and cries from the other room that are heart-wrenching.
“Who’s there? Can you hear me? Please talk to me. Who are you?”
I ask over and over, but the answers never come; just her screams. My god, I have got to get out of here. Gabriel will come…I know he will.
I can tell night is coming; the light coming through the boards covering the window is becoming low, then nothing. Night falls, and by now I am in frantic mode. Please, Gabriel, find me.
I must have fallen asleep during the night. The morning comes, and I’m awakened by a man yelling. He’s asking questions about me. The other girl hears him, too; now she is in overdrive with her fears. You can hear it in the way her voice changes to a higher octave. What the hell is going on?
My door swings open, and I see him. A man who I have met on several occasions. The man who wears a suit and a perfect smile now looks devious and sadistic.
Written by Monique Orgeron’s eldest, most beautiful, and intelligent daughter. (My sister is going to hate this part.)
My mom happens to be the most caring, loving, and stubborn person I know, well anyone knows. She gives 100% percent of herself to everyone and has given up so much of herself for my sister and I. For twenty-one years she has poured her heart and soul into making sure we know that we are loved and that we can do anything we put our minds too, but it was about time she figured that out about herself.
Up until this year I hadn’t seen my mom do anything for only her, but this book has allowed her to travel the world through the pages of a book, make new friends, and feel the joy of doing something exciting.
There is a new light behind her eyes and it is just making me feel more joy than she can ever imagine. While she might be annoying most of the time, I am so thrilled that she is finally allowing herself to grow as a person and not spend all of her energy on her family.
It has been a long journey of self-discovery for my mom; she has gone from domestic supermom to domestic goddess throughout the process of writing.
We are so very excited and proud of you! I love you as big as the world.
