Hyena Child

In the hot, wandering wilderness of Africa, we find Naieesha, a twelve year old girl who has been raised by a pack of hyena's her entire life.
When Thomas Walters, a man on safari, discovers this girl, he captures her and brings her home to his wealthy family in New York.
Things aren't always what they seem.
Lost and alone, Naieesha's behaviour is intolerable. She fights, eats with her hands, and will do anything to get back home to her beloved pack. Both her and The Walter's family are at their wits end. Can Lena Van Helsing, a teacher for the deaf and misunderstood, step in and save the day?


19. Chapter XIX - Elizabeth's Perspective

So the child got dressed. So the child ate breakfast with a utensil. Fine. But I will not allow Miss Van Helsing to hint that I am to lay down with her. 

What if she is to harm me while I am asleep?

With my Lucy, it was always gentle. Never loud, ongoing sobbing throughout the night, hoping that someone would come and comfort her. No. Lucy would creep silently into our bedroom, get under the covers, and not say a word till morning. 

I wish that Thomas never brought that child here. I wish he never hired that Van Hesling woman. He expects me to accept that- that - beast for my own daughter?!

She is not my daughter.

And she never will be.
