By the Time the Sun Rises

inspired by the play ¨'night, Mother¨ by Marsha Norman.

Serena has given up hope. She cannot have a good life. The only person she has to live for is her mother....but now she may end up giving up on her, too.
¨Goodnight, Mama. By the time the sun rises, I'll be gone.¨


6. 6

The time is 7:00 now.

Mama has fallen asleep.

Serena is still wide awake, eyes glued to the television.

In her head, she is counting down the minutes.

7:01. 59 minutes remaining.

There is a news reporter covering a story involving a drunk man and his dead daughter. The police have decided that he murdered the girl, only ten years old, in a fit of alcoholic fury.


Serena is more than ready to leave this world.

But she promised to wait.
