Wake up stronzetto

He wakes up as he’s being hit in the stomach and then dragged out of bed… just a few hours of sleep…. two maybe three… He feels the pain from her fingernails grabbing his tummy

– “Wake up stronzetto! You don’t deserve to sleep… It makes you evil…. now you need to be punished.”

– “You know sleeping makes you evil, don’t ever forget! We need to do something about that”

He was asleep… just a child… He’s scared and he knows what is about to happen… so he does as she says… He gets up… She grabs his arm and throws him down on the floor.

“Stand up!” she shouts…

He stands up and walks towards the stairs… but he hurt his ankle in the fall and it hurts to walk… she doesn’t care…

“Hurry up!” She holds him by the hair and drags him downstairs… He’s cold… tired and afraid of what’s going to happen…. He knows he deserves this… and there is no point to try to beg her to stop or to escape…

She makes him sit down….

”Sit! Play!” she shouts and hits him hard at the back of his head… “ Play!”

He sits down in front of the piano… He concentrates on the music, which helps him get away for a while… his mind goes away to another place… better place… He can feel himself leave the room to a better place… a beautiful place with mountains on one side and the ocean on the other side… sunshine, white beach and palm trees, birds singing in the sky… just like the pictures in the magazine….

When he comes back to the room… it’s over… He’s there again… pain… stinging sensation…. his back… towel on the floor filled with blood… his blood…

Someone is crying… He can hear someone crying but there’s only the two of them in the room and she isn’t crying… he is crying…

He knows what she did to him…to his body… it’s not the first time… He can see the blood on the cloth she is holding in her hand… and the knife… and he can feel a stinging sensation in his back…

“Go upstairs now…” she says… She seems calmer… She isn’t shouting anymore…
