She didn't make a sound as she cried. Her shoulders shaking from her blanket covered heap.
Katie knocked lightly yet efficiently on the door.
Kelly didn't make a sound as there was slick. Silent
Katie pushed the door open carefully, slowly, gently. "Hello?" She called softly.
She whimpered, hugging tighter. No. Not again...
Katie gently sat on the edge of the bed, picking up Lee to set him on her lap.
"Kelly?" Katie asked softly. "I'm not going to hurt you..."
Kelly whimpered. "You want me to get on the floor?" She whispered.
Katie blinked. "What? No, of course not sweetie." She said soothingly. "I'm Katie. This is Lee. Say 'hi', Lee."
Lee hid his face as he hugged Katie. Katie sighed. "He's shy."
Kelly tried to get as far away from her as she could, pressing herself to the headboard.
"Shh, it's okay sweetheart. I won't hurt you." Katie soothed. "Damien called me to come and take you shopping. For real clothes."
"Costumes?" She squeaked then started sobbing silently. "Please let me keep my clothes."
"Oh sweetheart no, of course not." Katie said softly, gently reaching to put a hand on her shoulder. "Real clothes. No costumes. I won't take away your clothes. I'm helping you get new ones."
When she touched Kelly, sheer terror flashed in her eyes. She didn't pull away though. She just held still. Terrorized.
Katie just lightly patted her shoulder. Lee started to tug lightly at the sleeve of her pure white dress.
"Mommy?" He asked.
"Friend?" He asked, timidly pointing to Kelly.
"Yes honey. Friend."
Kelly sniffled, watching them. She didn't want to go with her.
(( add on ))
But, she knew she would do as she said. She moved standing up, hugging at herself. "Ms. Katie." She whispered, looking truly broken. Her glassy baby blue eyes still shined with fresh tears.
"Oh sweetie, I'm not going to hurt you." Katie said gently, standing up and shifting Lee in her arms so he rested on her hip.
Killy sniffled as she stood, her head tilted down. "Yes Madam." She whispered then waited to be ordered around.
Damien poked his head in and saw her with her head lowered. "Oh Kelly..." He rushed over to her. "What did she say to you?" He asked worriedly, giving Katie a glare.
Kelly didn't make a noise other than a tiny sniffle.
