Non-verbal? No problem in this house! Thanks to Griffin for using his word board and supplying me with this week's word. Love you, middle-man!
Milo had no concept of time, so he couldn’t pinpoint when the abuse started. All he knew was that HIS eyes, once bright, became glassy; his teeth, pointed. Grinning, HE offered Milo a toy, then slapped him across the face when Milo reached for it. So Milo did all he knew to do - hide in the Safe Place. Even Mom didn’t know about it.
MILO! Dammit, where are YOU? HE was downwind; Milo had a keen sense of smell. He pulled his feet together, all four of them, haunching down to wait for Mom to come home and rescue him.
