“So, Lindsey, how do you sleep at night?”
What do you mean, Jenny?” I was confused by the question.
“Do you have flashbacks? Nightmares?” I nodded my head and locked eyes with her.
“Both.” I shrugged a shoulder.
“Are you having a tough time sleeping?”
“Do you know why?”
I leaned forward. “You know when you are little, and you want to keep the boogeyman out, so you ask your parents if you can sleep with the door open?” She peered at me as if I was freaking her out.
“Yes,” she replied softly.
“I wanted to sleep with my door closed and locked, to keep the boogeyman from coming in.”
“How does that answer my question of how you sleep at night, Lindsey,” she questioned with a shaky voice.
“Because sometimes I lay awake at night thinking about the horrible things that the boogeyman did to me.”
