Mustn’t Tell

‘You’re going to school,’ Mummy says.

She’s poorly but she acts like nothing’s happened. But they see her bloodied lip, the bruise on her arm. They heard the fight last night. Mummy tells them they mustn’t mention any of it to anyone. If they do, it will only get worse and they don’t want that, do they? No, they don’t.

They mustn’t tell. But when they draw pictures of Mummy, there’s blood gashing from her mouth and she has a black eye and bruises.

Miss asks about the pictures. They say they mustn’t tell or it will only get worse.
