**'Teaser Tuesday' is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading where bloggers share a quote from their latest read**
The boy was almost halfway to the kitchen when he stopped and skittered to the wall and pressed his back up against the cold wood paneling. Mommy had rules on where you could and couldn’t walk in the house, and the middle of the living room was a big no-no. He had a vague idea that it had something to do with the ‘germs’ Mommy was always talking about.
Hugging the wall, he slowly made his way to the fridge. That was where his breakfast was waiting for him, covered three times over with Saran Wrap: a piece of boiled ham, cold bread and a glass of grapefruit juice. The taste of all three was so awful he had thrown them into the trash once. Stuffed them right to the bottom so she wouldn’t know what he had done. But somehow she had known, the way she seemed to know a lot of things, and when she was through with him, he’d never done it again.
“Maybe one day when you have children of your own, you’ll understand how much I love you,” she’d told him. But before he could promise he would never do it again, the pain had made the world go black.
