For ten years you were frozen in a fairy dress. Sweet head of downy hair, lips a perfect O, round eyes and gossamer lashes looking into the camera, tiny feet in pristine white.
Behind us, a hill in full flora. Sun shining as though every day of us would last forever. We didn’t know our forever would be kidnapped, our every days destroyed by parents more childish than we.
