Chapter 1: D.O.L.L.H.O.U.S.E


A child, Dan Howell, only 11 years old sat huddled in the corner of the kitchen writing quickly and messily on a piece of paper.

Hey girl, open the walls, play with your dolls
We’ll be a perfect family.
When you walk away, it’s when we really play

Dan’s tears soaked the words and he was breathing hard. The moans from upstairs and the screams from the room beside him were shattering.

You don’t hear me when I say,
Mom, please wake up.
Dad’s with a slut, and your son is smoking cannabis

Dan was practically shaking back and forth trying to comfort himself. He was trying so hard.

No one ever listens, this wallpaper glistens
Don’t let them see what goes down in the kitchen.

Dan glanced at the thick blood on his wrists. The cuts that it was coming out of. The bloody knife beside him. Dan was sobbing.

Places, places, get in your places
Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces.
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains.

The boy remembered only a few hours ago his parents and older brother had-had the neighbor’s over for dinner. They had been dressed up nicely and sat at the table like nothing had gone wrong before.

Picture, picture, smile for the picture
Pose with your brother, won’t you be a good brother?
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains.

Dan shivered as the intensity of his surrounding. His cries had now turned to hyperventilating.

D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees.
D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees

Hey girl, look at my mom, she’s got it going on
Ha, you’re blinded by her jewelry.
When you turn your back she pulls out a flask
And forgets his infidelity.
Uh-oh, she’s coming to the attic, plastic
Go back to being plastic.

No one ever listens, this wallpaper glistens
One day they’ll see what goes down in the kitchen.

Places, places, get in your places
Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces.
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains.

Picture, picture, smile for the picture
Pose with your brother, won’t you be a good brother?
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains.

D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees.
D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees

Hey girl hey girl, hey girl, hey girl, hey girl
Hey girl, open your walls, play with your dolls
We’ll be a perfect family.

Places, places, get in your places
Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces.
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains.

Picture, picture, smile for the picture
Pose with your brother, won’t you be a good brother?
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains.

By now, Dan had finished, he folded up the paper and stuffed it in his pockets, flinching at the fabric of his jeans rubbed against his graded wrists. He stood up and began to bandage his wrists from the bandages he had hid in the cupboard under the sink. Still breathing hard, Dan took a step out of the kitchen and eyed his older brother Matt Howell who was chucking beer bottles at the wall and screaming. Matt had always acted violently drunk when he was high on Marijuana.

Dan tip-toed behind him and bolted silently up the stairs. Passed out on the landing, was none other than Mrs Howell with her flask in her right hand. Dan’s tears came pouring down again. He grabbed under his mothers arms, cursing as more fabric rubbed his wrists and dragged her to the guest room, then tucked her in the bed, taking away her flask and hiding it.

Dan shut off the light and closed the door behind him. His sobbing had returned as had the violent pain in his wrists. Dan walked slowly passed his parents bedroom, sobbing harder as the moans of his own father and some whore had sex in the bedroom where he and his wife and the mother of his children shared. Ever since Dan was born, his happy family ever-so-slowly came to this. He couldn’t get help because his brother threatened him and not that it would have worked anyways, his dad had paid him to keep quiet.

Dan walked into his little room and shut the door behind him. He locked it then crumpled to the floor. Crying until he could no more.

Hey! Allie here! Yes, I know, I am a horrible person for writing this. I was even beginning to tear up as I wrote it. The is a song-fic based off of Melanie Martinez’s song “Dollhouse.” Before you get angry about me changing a few lyrics in the song, Dan isn’t a girl so I didn’t have him write it originally. Copy & paste this to get the link to the original song/music video riiiiight HERE!
