Memory 6

Within three months of this number union mentioned in (5) I was home by myself from school, I recall feeling some urgency fear no panic when I saw this new husband rolling his car back in the driveway.  I raced outside the back door and under the house, I hid for some reason I knew I had to hide.  I was so quiet.  I Stayed hidden and staring at the spiders and dead rodents disgusted but those things were a comfort compared to the thing now just off the back porch growling pacing back and forth looking for me.  His behavior was that of an enraged predator.  I heard the words in my head “never approach a caged bear” So I hid and slowed my breath down made sure I used my nose only and pretended I was something rigid non living solid and stern but most of all quiet
