Darcy Wills hid in the dark hallway listening to the sound of her mother’s weary voice.
It was 11:00 at night, and Mom was in the bedroom talking with Dad.
Their door was closed.
But through the thin walls of her family’s small house, Darcy could hear them as if they were standing right in front of her.
“So what are you trying to say?”
His voice was strained, as if he was carrying a heavy block of cement on his back.
Darcy stood still as a statue, careful not to make a sound that would alert her parents to the fact that she was just a few feet away in the dark.
“I don’t know, Carl,”
“I don’t know anything anymore.”
There was a moment of silence, and Darcy thought she heard her mother sob.
“I just don’t have a good feeling about any of this.”
So it was true, Darcy thought.
Something was definitely wrong with her parents.
Darcy had sensed it for days.
She had noticed tension between them and had even heard Mom snap a few times, but until now she figured her mother was still recovering from the loss of Grandma.

Why is it locked?
We employ a team of editors who ensure that our technology has properly converted each book into its new Literal format.
We are also a scrappy young startup looking to make sure that we spend our resources wisely.
This means that in some cases we only edit and publish small portions of a book to begin with.
This lets us save on costs and helps focus our efforts on completing only the books that paying customers actually want to read.
