yikici Izzy’s Secret Voice Week 2014 – A Bonus – yikici

27 Sep

I parked outside the Mansion with its unwelcoming bricks.  I hate coming here.  But today is the day.  I sink my head onto the steering wheel and my whole body sighs.  This is it.  I’ve served them all my life for this moment of freedom, the day has finally arrived, one last meeting, a last handover, but this time I will set the record straight, Kylie will not be staying behind like I was made to do so.

Why do they just come here for drop-offs and kid exchanges? This is a place for fun, for laughter, not for bitch sessions.

26 Sep

I sink into the closed door of Izzy’s study, tears silently trickle down my sodden cheeks.  Why was she seeing h-him?  It was hh-he, who…I grasp frantically onto the gold locket around my neck, it’s still here. My lungs relax a little.

26 Sep

Brian sat in the corner of the test room, rocking, holding his injured arm and holding back his tears. He should not cry like a child. Adults do not cry.

Sometimes, you just want something sweet and tasty and brightly-coloured. It’s not an addiction, barely even a habit.
