Drabble Challenge #3 [Alternate]

Prompt: secrets

“Did Daddy ever mess with you?” one woman asks another.

“Not that I remember.”

“I’m askin’ questions. I tried to talk to Mama. She changed the subject; said she had to shower."

“I didn’t tell you the truth. I said he’d only kissed me, laid on top of me. He did more."

“In therapy, my girls named to the counselor their molesters. She said to me, ‘I hate to tell you this, but they named your father.’ I lost it. My adopted girls and me had been hurt by the same man. That’s when I decided to talk.”

Silence breaking.
