Love Looks Back – Meet Dolly

Meet Dolly, oldest girl of the seven Larue siblings. Dol was the mother hen over her younger sisters and brothers. She had to be after Mama died.


Her heart beating out of control, Dolly awoke in the strange white room with the stab of her own sharp pains. Disoriented, she didn’t know where she was.

A sharp cry escaped her lips as she turned in bed. Reaching down to put pressure on the pain in her groin, Dol was horrified. A wet stickiness soaked her gown. She pulled at the call light and slowly raised the covers, terrified. Sobs violently shook her body as her nightmare turned into reality. Bright red blood was everywhere – her gown, her sheets, her blankets. Dol’s agonized scream alerted the nurses as another excruciating pain robbed her of breath. Her scream ended as she passed out into darkness.
