Katie quietly worked on her Fifth Grade ‘North Pole Project’.

Victoria walked in. It was freezing. She looked outside. Bright sunny day.

The mirror was foggy. The vignettes played. Naomi with her baby, the funeral.

She whispered, “I’m so sorry.”

It was ten years ago. Ray’s affair with Naomi. The “accident” in the kitchen.

Naomi begging for mercy as Victoria closed the large freezer door shut.

“I want my baby.”

Victoria sobbed, “No.. please.” She screamed as the manicured hand closed around her throat.

“Mom, how does my project look?”

“Everything’s perfect, my little one,” said Victoria. Her eyes peaceful.
