Daddy, please don't kill my mama


by Natisha P. Parsons

She ran to the kitchen and grabbed a poker that was lying near the wood and coal stove and brandished it in the air. “Leave my Mama at once or I’ll jab this in your stomach!” She looked so fearsome that Jordan let go of his burden and faced his irate little girl, the apple of his monstrous heart. In that moment the devil that lived in him manifested in his little girl. She was prepared to kill him. He saw it in her eyes.

Daddy, Please Don’t Kill My Mama is about home-brewed human suffering: emotional, psychological, physical torture. This is a fictional story about what the abused family suffers – all based on real life experiences the author has heard of in her many years of teaching school and her just being a person who hears of things and lived through domestic violence.
