Inspiration came from the song “My Sweet Child,” which is from Dennis DeYoung’s musical adaptation of “101 Dalmatians” by B.T. McNicholl.

Chapter 1

You appeared to me out of nowhere!

Your magical grin brought tears to my eyes!

When you don’t feel magical,

It breaks my heart!

In your mother’s eyes,

There is nothing wrong with you!

Be proud of yourself,

The way I am of you!

In the time to come,

You will be able to know!

You’re exceptional!

Omega: In awe of this writer's ability to set a scene, all be it a dark and disturbing one. Feels true to the characters and shows a good understanding of the human psyche. Can recommend, but may touch a nerve if you have suffered abuse.
