Ricky? Are you there, Ricky? Her whisper broke my train of thought; I hastily replied that I was. What is going to happen to me? she whispered, and her voice was so full of fear that I completely lost my head and went down on my knees and told her that I wasn’t allowed to talk to her. Then she, all choked up, whispered, Pleeez, Ricky, I neeed to talk to you, and her heart-wrenching supplication made my head spin even more. Before I knew it, I was telling her about the food and the drink, to which she responded positively.
Gazing at his tree, Kenny waved me away. I took this as a good sign. Filled with hope, I tiptoed from the lounge and closed the door behind me. 15 Mercifully, the fight ended quickly and the house lapsed into silence again. I sat on the mattress with my back against the bed. I felt lonely and alone. The first scream had sent Me into hiding; she now lay useless, shriveled inside me like a piece of old skin. I cried a little, thinking about one thing. Why did this happen to me? Why pick us? We have no money to speak of.
Anyway, her question took me by surprise. Without thinking, I blurted out Ricky. Why I said Ricky I don’t know, but I told her this lie and there was no turning back. Besides, just then Ricky seemed to me as good a name as any. She might not have liked it though because when I said Ricky, she nodded as if her worst fears had been confirmed. Ricky, she sighed, trying to smile. I wasn’t taken in. Her nervous grinning reminded me of Fluffy, my scared little rabbit that Uncle Clem got me and which he let me keep; this happened before the funny business started but still, I eventually told Kenny about Uncle Clem’s visits.
