It was dark when Tata came home.
He knocked. Mama listened.
I said “Mama, Tata is knocking.”
She opened and walked back to
She didn’t say anything to him.
Tata came to sit next to me.
He tried to hug me. I jumped
Off the sofa and asked “What
Did you bring me, Tata?”
He looked at me and laughed.
Mama came back she said:
“Don’t tell my child any of
Your nonsense. Go sleep!”
He pulled me closer. She
Pushed him away.
She shouted: “Don’t touch this
Child with those hands! You know
Where they’ve been!” He stood up
And pushed back at her. He also
Shouted at her: “Where were these
Hands? Who did they touch?”
Mama said “Oh, you want the child
To see what kind of a dog you are?”
He pushed her again. She fell.
