Excerpt: Medusa – The Lost Daughter

From “Bad Dream”

Some say a mother’s touch is forever
and a child knows her mother from her first
breath. Should a child be stripped of her mother,
the damage the child feels is forever,
a part of the child that will never heal.

self-restraint. How easy it is to resist
temptation when the indulgence is a
distant memory, not when it is fresh
to the raw mind.
