Prompt: 1 – Blood is thicker than water

Pen Name: Graceless Mary

Pairing/Character(s): Charlie

Rating: T


She put my dinner down in front of me just like every other night, the same glazed look on her face. Just a ghost of who she once was, now withered and shrunken to almost nothing. I remember her laughter, her excitement and joy with the boy I hated, but at least she was happy. I know she thinks she is fooling me with the forced smiles, the routine, keeping her head down. But she is just a shell, going through the motions of life without realising it is actually happening.

What can I do?

I want my daughter back.
