The Doll Funeral

My name is Ruby. I live with Barbara and Mick. They´re not my real parents, but they tell me what to do, and what to say. I´m supposed to say that the bruises on my arms and the black eye came from falling down the stairs.

But there are things I won´t say. I won´t tell them I´m going to hunt for my real parents. I don´t say a word about Shadow, who sits on the stairs, or the Wasp Lady I saw on the way to bed.

I did tell Mick that I saw the woman in the buttercup dress, hanging upside down from her seat belt deep in the forest at the back of our house. I told him I saw death crawl out of her. He said he´d give me a medal for lying.

I wasn´t lying. I´m a hunter for lost souls and I´m going to be with my real family. And I´m not going to let Mick stop me.
