Once upon a time, I was a little girl who disappeared.
Once upon a time, my name was not Alice.
Once upon a time, I didn’t know how lucky I was.
Alice was taken by Ray when she was 10 years old. She has endured unimaginable things, unimaginable pain she wants to die, but yet she lives. She is 15 and Ray still has her, people look at her but no one sees her, no one wants to see. Ray is talking more and more about her death how she is too old now and used up. She welcomes death, wants it even, but it’s not that simple. It never is. He has plans for her, something she needs to do for him before he kills her. The choice she makes will define her life and death.
This was a disturbing but powerful story about the unimaginable things you can endure and how no matter what others put you through or how tear you down in the end you decide who you are and what you stand for.
