"Tired of talking to people who don't respond reasonably." "That's
beccause you think you know everything." "Where is the baby?" "She
is outside." "Doing what?" He was alarmed. "Playing." He got out
while she sneaked off. He never knew she was never going to return.
"The baby was playing outside in the grass and could not walk.
Neighbours were calling. She was throwing stones and breaking
things. "Such a strong baby, common let's go inside." The baby spat
on his face and wriggled free and continued prancing about. He
picked her up and realised she was wearing no diaper. She was
fighting to be free and peed on his clothes. He shook. "This must
be an animal its so possible he thought and felt guilty She let him
carry her. She started to itch all over like a little dog. "Why are
you doing this?" He asked. "This baby is like two, why would she
not talk and then pee on me." He took her to put a diaper on her
and she peed again. He tied her in a plastic bag and punched her
all over. She cried. Hours later she was ill. He put a thermometer
in her mouth. She broke it and stabbed him. She was angry. She did
not stop being angry throwing things around. Some friends came to
visit and she kept beating him till his friends had to leave. She
was acting confused. She told him her mother had run away. It was
obvious because two days had passed and she was no where. He wept
for her and tried to bond but there was no way. He just could not
care for a child that bit him so badly he went to see a doctor.
"She is just like you" was all she said. "She hates me, more than
anything. I am going to be really mean." "Yes be yourself, you are
a monster and no one can ever love you. She does not know what you
are at all!" "Come back please." "No way."
