homeschooled. I have to teach myself from a book that Jane and
Harold bought me. I work out of that book for 3 hours each day and
for a few hours at night before bed. All the rest of my time is
spent cleaning, cooking, or doing other chores. I am only allowed
one shower per week. Sometimes I sneak into the bathroom and use
the faucet to wash my face, armpits, etc. I don’t wear any
makeup and fixing my hair consists of me throwing my long knotted
brown hair into a ponytail or bun. Sierra always looks nice. She is
always wearing pretty dresses and has her hair done nicely. I wear
old worn out thrift shop jeans, an old stained shirt two sizes too
big, and sneakers that I’ve had for the past 3 years. I wish
Jane and Harold loved me as much as Sierra, but that’s
impossible. I’m underweight… borderline anorexic, but
not by choice… by force. I never get fed full meals. My
shirts always float off of my bag of bones body. I want to get away
so badly. I stole this book from Jane’s desk. It was brand
new; she has multiple of them so she wouldn’t notice one
missing. But, now you’re mine, journal… the only thing
I love. I hope one day that someone will read this journal.
They’ll learn about my life, especially if I die too. Diana
is looking over me… protecting me. I know it. Well,
it’s 6 a.m. I better get started on my chores. I walk
upstairs and find my list left on the counter from Jane and Harold.
Jane writes them though. This is the
list… Skye’s Chores

-Jane & Harold Yep, that’s my list of the day. I better
