SSS #6: Dot

I’m going to get back in the habit of posting for Six Sentence Sunday and One Word Wednesday.  This week I hadn’t thought to sign up on the SSS site, but next week I will remember to do so.

This passage focuses on Dot, one of Edward Jasper’s children.

Dot’s story was different.  She had a mother once, and remembered her well.  But something happened not long before Edward found her that was awful enough to traumatize the girl.  Dot was eight years old when she and her new father first met.  Ten years later, she swore to the same age.  Whatever abuse she suffered must have been so terrible that Dot never could cope or move on, and so she stayed a perpetual child in her mind.

Next week I’ll post a passage about some of the other children.
