“Mom- Mom. Mom no! What are you doing?”
“NO!” I scream as loud as I can. “Wh- STOP!”
“Mom! Mom!” My voice cracks as I struggle against the full force of my mother’s weight pushing down on my shoulders. The box smelled strongly of mildew and death.
“CARTER! Get. In. The. Box!”
I finally get a finger hold on the rim of the opening, “What the hell are you doing? MOM!”
She sighed, not lessening her force. “Carter… it’s for your own good. Just one night- one night is all you have to stay inside…”
My eyes widen- then one question forms in my mind. “Mom… Wha-”
My head slams against the bottom of the crate. As I struggle to regain my hold on the outside of the box a massive metal lid slides over the top. I pound and kick at the layer above me. It doesn’t budge.
I curl up and count the minutes. One… Two… Three…
Suddenly a loud bang and the unmistakable sound of metal on metal rubbed on the hood.
“Mom? Mom!” My voice echoes in the small space.
“Just a precaution. For your own good.” Her muffled voice responds.
“No no no- Mom! MOM! Let me out! PLEASE!”
“I can’t Carter… it’s for your own good.”
“What does that even mean!”
There is no response.
