Mother's Present
One day, my Mother, Kassandra, brought me a lovely doll as a present. She was big, and she had yellow strings instead of hair.

I put her to sleep in her box, but first I cut off her legs and arms so she'd fit.

Later, I cut her head off too, so she wouldn't be so heavy. Now I love her very much.
