I hung back, watching as Lily’s tiny frame bounced toward the back door.
It had been weeks since I allowed her in the backyard; it was too dangerous.
In a neighborhood once filled with children’s laughter and dogs barking, the feral gangs of dogs that roamed the streets now meant my daughter would be confined to playing in the house.
But today, I agreed to let her come out with me—for five minutes.
She had begged me to plant flowers with her, and as soon as Mary agreed, Lily had run to find me so we could get started.
I picked up the shovel and followed her.
“Are you okay?”
My wife sat at the counter, flipping through a cookbook.
“Don’t worry; I won’t let her out of my sight,” I said, running my hand through my hair.
She knew what I was thinking, what was always on my mind these days.
I dropped down into the chair next to her and wrapped my arms around her waist.
“It’s just not safe.
She’s only five; she has no idea how bad it is out there.”
Mary wrapped her arms around my neck and pulled herself closer to me.
“I know,” she whispered against my lips.
“I just want her to be able to have a normal childhood.” Mary’s voice cracked as she spoke.
“I know, sweetheart,” I said, kissing her forehead.
“I do too.”
But we both knew that wasn’t possible.
After Lily was born, we were determined to give her a happy home life; but we never dreamed that it would be this dangerous to step outside our own front door.
“Are you ready to help Daddy plant the flowers?”
Lily stayed at our house while I worked at the warehouse, so when we got home, she always wanted to help in the garden.
She was so excited after Mary agreed that she hardly touched her breakfast.
“Daddy, what’s wrong with those dogs?”
I looked up from the hole I was digging and saw Lily’s small finger pointing to a dog across the street.
He was walking around in circles, his tongue hanging out of his mouth.
In the distance, I heard a loud bark and knew that it wouldn’t be long before the dogs in our area would hear him too.
“They’re sick,” I said, pulling a flower from the flat next to me.
“You can help me by putting this one in the hole.”
Lily scooped up some soil in her tiny hands and dropped it into the hole with the flower.
“Like when I had to stay home from school after I got sick last winter?”
“No,” I said softly.
“It’s different.”
The last thing I wanted to do was scare her.
“All you need to know is that they’re not like the dogs we used to have.”
Guilt squeezed my chest at having to tell her that; she loved our old dogs more than anything else in the world.
But I couldn’t let her go near them or think they were safe.

Lily looked over at the dog again, and I watched as her eyes welled up with tears.
I dropped the shovel and pulled her into my chest, wrapping my arms around her small frame as she cried.
“Shh, it’s okay, baby,” I whispered into her hair, praying she would believe me.
I stared at the dog across the street, pacing back and forth on the sidewalk, and it took everything in me not to pull Lily inside and lock all the doors.
“Can we go inside?”
she asked softly, her tears finally subsiding.
“Of course, baby girl,” I said, kissing her hair.
“We can come back outside tomorrow when they’re gone.”
Lily smiled up at me and followed me inside, where I turned on the TV and got her toys from the other room so she could play while I made dinner.
And for a few hours, everything was how it should be.
After breakfast the next morning, Lily asked if we could go outside and plant flowers again.
Mary was in the shower, and since it had only been one dog yesterday and they were usually already in our backyard when we woke up in the morning, I said yes.
I watched from the back door as Lily watered all the flowers, and when she was finished, she started at the beginning and watered them all again.
I couldn’t stop the smile from spreading across my face as she squealed with delight the first time she accidentally sprayed herself with water.
I had kept a close eye on her, but eventually, when I was sure all the dogs were gone, I let her play on a blanket close to the house while she played with her toys so that I could start making dinner.
The sun was shining, and for a brief moment, I allowed myself to hope that one day it would be like this every day.
I was at the stove frying bacon when I saw them.
My heart stopped.
There was no way to know how many dogs were in each group, since they were always on the move and often overlapped with other groups.
But there were at least five or six dogs standing at the edge of our property.
I turned off the stove and pushed open the back door as far as it would go.
“Lily,” I whispered as loud as I could without being too loud.
She was still playing with her toys on the blanket, which was only a few feet away from where they were standing.
I wanted to scream for her to run inside, but I knew that would scare her even more and that she would be more likely to run toward them than away.
I watched in horror as one of the dogs started walking toward her, his tail wagging behind him.
“Lily.” My voice cracked as tears welled up in my eyes.
“Can you come here, baby?”
She looked over at me and smiled.
“I’m going to come over there to you,” I said, trying to keep my voice light and happy so that it wouldn’t scare her.
“I just wanted you to come to me first.”
Image for story eAEr
Her brow wrinkled in confusion, and she looked back at the dog who was now a few feet away from the edge of the blanket.
I knew I should have gone out there and grabbed her, but I didn’t want to scare her or make her panic.
If she ran toward the dogs, I might not be able to catch up with her in time, and I knew they were so close that they could easily catch up with me if they started running toward me as well.
So I stood there, helplessly, watching as she stood up from the blanket and walked toward the dog.
She reached out one hand toward it, and I couldn’t stop the scream that came out of my mouth as I ran toward her, my arms reaching for her tiny body.
She was still too far away from me, and the dog didn’t come all the way up to her like I thought he would, so I stopped running and held out my arms as she kept walking toward the dog, who was now standing perfectly still, his head cocked to the side as he stared at my daughter.
She was now only about a foot away from him, and I screamed for her to come back to me, but she was still too far away to hear me over the sound of my own heart pounding in my ears.
The dog slowly started walking backward, and I let out a sigh of relief, thinking that he was going to leave.
Then he stopped, turned around, and started barking at another dog who had joined him at the edge of our property, along with a third dog who was now standing near Lily on the other side.
The largest dog who was standing near Lily raised his head up high and let out a low growl before baring his teeth at me and snarling.
“Please don’t,” I begged, praying that he wouldn’t attack us.
Neither one of us made a move, but we stood there staring at each other for what felt like forever.
I didn’t want to take my eyes off of him, but I knew that Lily was still standing on the other side of the dog, and I didn’t want to lose sight of her, either.
I tried to stay calm as I talked to the dog.
“Please don’t hurt us,” I whispered before turning my head slightly so that I could see Lily out of the corner of my eye.
She was no longer standing on the blanket but was now standing next to the dog.
I swallowed thickly as I tried to talk to the dogs.
“You’re a good boy, right?”
I was met with a deafening growl, and all of the dogs bared their teeth at me as they all started charging at her.
“Run, Lily!”
I screamed at the top of my lungs.
She turned around and saw the dogs coming at her, and I could see the fear and terror on her face.
Her eyes widened as she let out a blood-curdling scream and ran toward me, but two more dogs came from the side and cut off her path.

She tried to stop and turn around, but another dog came from behind her and jumped onto her back before she hit the ground.
Tears streamed down my face as I saw the dogs ripping into her body.
Blood splattered everywhere, and I could see pieces of flesh flying through the air as she screamed in pain.
I had to get them off of her before they killed her, so I ran toward them with all of my might.
I kicked one dog in the side, and he went flying toward the fence with a yelp before he fell to the ground.
The other dogs didn’t even look at him as they continued ripping into Lily.
With all of the fear and adrenaline running through my body, I managed to pick up one of the smaller dogs by its hind legs and fling it toward the street before I picked up another one by its neck and threw him over the fence.
That must have been enough to scare them off, because they all took off running in different directions after that.
As soon as they were gone, I flew over to where Lily’s body lay motionless on the ground and picked her up.
Her body fell limp in my arms, and when I looked down at her face, her eyes were still open and staring into space.
She was barely breathing as she lay in my arms.
I pressed my hand against her stomach to try and stop some of the blood from coming out as I picked her up and ran toward the front gate.
Mary was standing there with her mouth hanging open and a terrified look on her face.
“Help me!”
I screamed at her as I ran past her.
She didn’t move at first but then seemed to come out of it and started following me as I made my way toward our car.
I kicked open the back door and carefully placed Lily on the back seat before closing the door and running around to get into the driver’s seat.
Mary got into the passenger’s seat just as I pulled out of our driveway and sped down the street.
“Call 9-1-1,” I ordered as we approached a stop sign.
She didn’t say anything but quickly dialed the number and held her phone up to her ear.
Lily was no longer laying on her back like she had been when I put her on the seat but was now lying on her stomach with her head turned to one side.
Blood was coming out of her mouth as she took shallow breaths and went in and out of consciousness.
Her little body was covered in blood, and I could see bite marks all over her arms and legs.
Her shorts were ripped, and I could see that some of her skin had been torn off, along with a few large chunks that were missing.
I took my left hand off the steering wheel and placed it on her back to try and stop some of the bleeding while Mary talked to the hospital on her phone.
The dispatcher asked her a bunch of questions, but she was too scared to answer them, so I asked her for the phone and told them what happened as we sped down the road.
When we were about a block away from our house, I looked in my rearview mirror and saw a bunch of dogs running after our car.
They were mainly small dogs who were running as fast as they could to try and keep up with us, but I could also see a few larger dogs who were running as well, but they were falling behind.
Image for story eAEr
I pressed my foot on the gas pedal even harder than before and sped down the road as fast as I could, trying to put as much distance between us and them.
There was blood all over my hand from where I had been pressing it against Lily’s body, so I took off my shirt and wrapped it around my hand before pressing it against her back again.
The fabric quickly turned red as blood started soaking through, but even with my hand pressed against her back, blood was still oozing out from between my fingers.
Mary’s screams filled the car as she realized how badly Lily was hurt.
It sounded like she was crying, but I couldn’t look over at her because I needed to keep my eyes on the road.
“Mommy,” Lily whimpered from the back seat, “Mommy, help me.”
Her voice was weak, and I could barely hear what she said, but when I looked back at her, I saw that she was awake and looking up at me with tears streaming down her cheeks.
“It’s going to be okay,” I said as I tried to smile at her.
“It’s going to be okay.”
I swallowed hard as I saw how much blood she had lost and knew that we needed to get her to the hospital as soon as possible.
When we were about a block away from home, Mary suddenly threw open her door and jumped out of the car.
“Mary!”
I screamed as I looked over my shoulder to see her laying in the middle of the road behind us with her phone lying beside her, still connected to 9-1-1.
“Get back in here!”
She didn’t answer me, and I could see her sitting up and looking around as she tried to get to her feet, but she kept falling down.
“Lily,” she was screaming, “Lily, please be okay.”
I could no longer see any dogs following us, so I slammed on my brakes and put the car in reverse before getting out and running over to where she was.
I picked her up off of the ground and carried her over to our car, which I parked beside her before I ran over and picked up Lily in one arm and Mary in the other before carrying them both over to our car.
“Please don’t leave me,” Mary said as I placed her in the front seat, “Please don’t leave me.”
“I’m not going to leave you,” I said as I put Lily in Mary’s arms and ran around to get into the driver’s seat again.
“I’ll follow you,” Mary said as she opened her door, “I’ll follow you there; just please don’t drive away and leave me here with her.”
“I won’t leave you,” I promised her, “but you need to stay with her because she needs you right now more than she needs me.”
“Just please get us there as fast as you can,” she said as she closed her door and rolled down her window so she could talk to Lily.
“It’s an hour drive from here, so it’s going to take a while,” I told her as I started driving down the street, “but I’ll get you there as soon as I can.”
She nodded and leaned down to talk to Lily in hushed tones that I couldn’t hear, but when Lily didn’t answer, she spoke louder this time so that I could hear what she was saying.

“I’m so sorry that this happened to you,” she said as she started crying harder than before, “I love you so much, Lily.”
“John,” she said as she sat up, “she isn’t responding to me anymore.
I don’t think that she can still hear us.”
“She can still hear you,” I said as I reached back to hold her hand, “but the pain is probably too much for her to want to talk right now.”
“Lily,” she said as she pushed my hand away so she could reach out to her, “please don’t leave me.I’m begging you to stay with me for just a little while longer.”
“Mommy,” Lily said weakly as her blood dripped down onto the seat.
“It’s okay,” Mary said as she started to cry harder again, “I’m here with you now.”
“Can I have some water?”
Lily asked as she looked up at me with desperate eyes.
“I’ll give you anything that you want,” I said as I swerved to miss a car that had come into our lane to pass another one, “Just please don’t go right now.”
“Can you please give her some water?”
Mary asked as she continued crying.
“We’re almost there,” I said as I stepped harder on the gas pedal, “so she can have something to drink when we arrive.”
Lily tried to say something else after that, but it was so faint that I couldn’t even make it out, but when Mary looked down at her to try and get her to repeat it, she wasn’t able to say anything else either.
When we arrived at the hospital a few minutes later, I raced inside while carrying Lily in my arms, and I screamed for someone to help us as loudly as I could.
A group of nurses came over with a stretcher and took her from me before they started rushing her away to the emergency room.
“She was attacked by feral dogs in our backyard,” I told them as I tried to keep up with them while they pushed her along the hallway, “and she lost a lot of blood before we could get here!”
“Are you her father?”
one of them asked me as I followed them into a room that was filled with doctors who were already waiting for us.
“Yes,” I said as I nodded, “and she’s my only daughter, so you need to save her!”
“We’re going to do everything we can,” one of the doctors said as he pushed me back out of the room, “but her injuries are really bad, so you need to wait out here.”
“No,” I said as I tried to push past him to get inside, “I want to stay with her!”
“You can’t be in here,” he said as he grabbed me by the shoulders, “so you need to wait out here until we tell you what’s happening.”
“I don’t want to be out here,” I said as I shook him off of me, “but if I have to be, then at least let my wife come in here because it’s our daughter who you’re working on!”
“No, no, no!”
Image for story eAEr
Mary screamed as she ran up beside me, and even though a doctor came over to speak with us a few seconds later, I wasn’t able to pay any attention to him because my mind was so focused on what was happening behind those doors that I couldn’t think of anything else.
How is she doing?”
Mary asked him as soon as he was close enough to hear her, but instead of answering us right away, he gave us a sad look as he shook his head and lowered his gaze to the floor.
“I’m sorry,” he said a few seconds later, “but we did everything we could.”
“No, we’re not going to leave without our daughter!”
Mary yelled as she tried to run past him to see Lily, but two more doctors came over to stop us before we were able to reach that room.
“I’m so sorry,” the first doctor said after he placed his hands on our shoulders, “but your daughter was just too badly injured for us to save her.”
“What do you mean you couldn’t save her?”
I demanded as I pulled away from him and took a step back while staring at him in horror.
He just stared back at me with an emotionless expression on his face before he answered me in a cold voice that seemed almost robotic because it was so detached from everything that was happening.
“Your daughter died from the injuries she received from the feral dog attack.”
“She can’t die,” I said as I tried to process what he’d just told us, and even though I knew the words he’d just said were right, I still didn’t want them to be true.
I didn’t want my daughter to be dead, and I couldn’t believe she really was.
“She can’t die,” I repeated as I looked down at the floor to keep myself from focusing on the doctor who’d just told us the worst news of our lives, “because she’s only seven years old and she has her whole life ahead of her, so there’s no way she’s dead.”
When I looked up at him a few seconds later, I saw the same look of indifference on his face as he started speaking again.
“It’s really sad,” he said as he looked down at the clipboard he was holding, “but this is just natural behavior for feral dogs, and they can be really dangerous if you try to approach them, which is why it’s best not to give them any reason or opportunity to attack you.”
“What did you just say?”
Image for story eAEr
I asked in a voice that was barely under control, and he lifted his head up again as he blinked at me in confusion.
I asked, feeling like a fuse had been lit inside me as I clenched my fists at my sides.
“I said that it’s best not to give feral dogs any reason or opportunity—”
“So, you’re saying it was our fault?”
I interrupted him before letting out a bitter laugh as I shook my head.
“I can’t believe you’re actually trying to blame us for this when we weren’t the ones who let those feral dogs get into our neighborhood in the first place.”
He just blinked at me a few times in response before he said, “What do you mean?Are you saying that they somehow managed to open one of their cages and escape?”
“No,” I growled back at him.
“What I’m saying is that somebody let them out on purpose because they wanted something like this to happen, and now our daughter is dead because of it.”
“It’s really sad,” he repeated, “but those feral dogs have no other place to go, which is why it’s our responsibility to make sure they don’t starve or die from dehydration by providing them with food and water whenever we can.”
“That still doesn’t justify what happened,” I shouted back at him.
“Nothing could ever justify what those feral dogs did to our daughter, so why are you even trying to make it sound like it was our fault?”
“Because it really wasn’t their fault,” he replied.
“After all, they’re feral dogs, and feral dogs are known for their aggressive behavior.
“That still doesn’t matter,” I shot back at him, “because this was still your fault.”
“It really wasn’t,” he replied before looking down at the clipboard in his hand again.
“What else are we supposed to say when we know that nobody would ever be willing to adopt them because of how dangerous they can be, which is why there’s really no other way for them to survive besides living on the streets?”
“That still doesn’t matter,” I said as I felt my sorrow turning into fury, “because that still doesn’t justify what they did to our daughter, so stop trying to act like it does.”
“We told you before that it really doesn’t matter,” he replied as he finally put down the clipboard to look at us in annoyance, “so stop trying to act like it does or we’re going to have to ask you to leave.”
“Not until you tell me the truth,” I shouted back at him as I took a step forward, but two security guards suddenly appeared from behind me to grab my arms while another one stepped in front of me to hold up his hand in warning.
“Just let us go!”
I shouted in response as I tried to pull myself free from their grip, but they just tightened their hold on me instead.
“Not until you calm down and stop causing any further trouble,” the third guard replied before he gave me a look of warning.
“If you keep acting like this, then we’re going to have to call for more security to get you under control, so what’s it going to be?”
Image for story eAEr
I gave him a glare in return as my body continued to shake with fury, but he just gave me another look of warning before tightening his grip on me as well.
I tried to pull myself free from his grip again, but he just tightened his hold on me even further while giving me a warning look.
I gave him a glare in return as the other two guards continued to hold onto me as well, but he just gave me another look of warning before gesturing for the other two guards to let go of me.
I glared at him in return as he turned around to walk back behind the desk, but he just ignored me in response while the other two guards turned around to walk away.
I gave him a death glare in return as we continued to follow him out of the room, but he just ignored us in return once again while leading us back down the hallway towards the waiting room.
As we walked down the hallway, I couldn’t help but feel my fury towards that doctor growing even further as the memory of his cold words replayed in my mind.
But as much as I wanted to punch that doctor in the face right now, now is not the time for me to do that since we need to focus on making sure that Lily gets justice instead.
As we continued to walk down the hallway, I couldn’t help but feel my body start to shake with fury again as I saw a man suddenly step in front of us while glaring at us with a look of disgust on his face.
“We told you before that this was your fault,” he said as he glared at us, “so don’t even bother trying to act like it wasn’t.”
“That still doesn’t matter,” I said as I turned around to face him, “because this was still your fault, and you know it.”
“As we told you before, this really wasn’t our fault,” he replied while crossing his arms over his chest, “which means that we’re not going to be held responsible for what happened no matter how much you may want us to be, so just drop it already.”
“But you know what?”
he added before stepping up closer to me with a look of disgust on his face, “if you decide that you’re still going to try and sue us for what happened here, then we’ll do everything in our power to make sure that your lives are nothing but a living hell for as long as you keep this up.”
I could feel my body start to shake with anger as I listened to his words while he leaned in closer and closer with a look of malice in his eyes, but all I could do at the moment was just glare back at him in response while feeling my body fill up with rage.
But no matter how much I may want to punch him in the face right now, now is not the time for me to do that since we need to focus on making sure that Lily gets the justice she deserves instead.
So no matter what they may try and do to stop us, we can’t let them win, and we won’t.

With our hands still tightly clasped together, Mary and I slowly made our way down the hallway as we continued to feel our bodies start shaking uncontrollably while trying to cope with the pain of losing our little girl.
As she continued to hold onto me, I could feel her tears soaking through my shirt with each passing second as we both tried our best not to break down again while we dealt with the unbearable pain of losing our only child.
“I’m so sorry,” I said as I pulled her in closer and wrapped my arms around her, “I’m so, so sorry.”
“It’s not your fault,” she replied as she tightened her grip on me, “and it never will be, John, so don’t you dare blame yourself for what happened out there.”
Despite her words, I still couldn’t help but feel my heart clench up at the thought of never seeing Lily again as I held Mary in my arms while trying my best not to fall apart all over again.
But even though the two of us were both feeling the same pain right now, it still felt like the only thing that was able to keep me from breaking down and sobbing all over again was feeling her warmth against me.
That was why, when I felt her let go of my hand, I couldn’t help but feel a pang of despair shoot through my heart as she pulled away from me and headed into the bathroom.
While she was in there, I turned around and saw that a nurse was walking over to us with a clipboard in her hand while another person was following close behind her.
“Would you like to speak with one of our on-staff grief counselors who could help you figure out what to do next?”
the nurse asked as she looked at me and handed me a piece of paper.
I could feel my heart start to sink at her words, and all I could do was just shake my head as I took the paper from her and shoved it back into her hands.
“Thank you,” I replied, “but that won’t be necessary.”
After we got back to our room and got Mary’s clothes from earlier, we noticed that there was a doctor who was waiting outside for us while another person stepped up next to him.
“We’re very sorry for your loss,” he said as he looked at both Mary and I with a look of sympathy on his face, “but I want you to know that your daughter didn’t suffer one bit when those dogs were trying to kill her out there.”
“Don’t you dare try and tell us how she felt when she was out there!”
I shouted at him in response as I took a step forward while trying my best not to punch him in the face right now.
“I’m sorry,” he replied while holding his hands up in front of him, “but I just wanted you both to know that she didn’t suffer when she was out there because she didn’t deserve that one bit after everything else that she went through.”
“You know what?”
I said as I felt my blood start to boil again, “I don’t want to hear another word that you have to say right now.”
Image for story eAEr
With that, I turned around and headed over to Mary before wrapping my arms around her once again before we left the hospital with the doctor calling after us.
And that was when I let my anger get the best of me before I turned around and started heading straight for him with my fists clenched tight at my sides.
“I can see that you’re starting to get angry at us, but it’s normal for people who have lost a loved one to be this way.”
He said with a look of understanding on his face, “So if you would just listen to me for a moment, then I could try and help you feel better about everything.”
But no matter how much he tried to explain himself right now, all that I wanted to do was just hit him in the face right now with everything that I could muster.
Despite that, however, I knew that Mary wouldn’t like it if I did that right now since she wasn’t feeling well at all right now and I still needed to take care of her right now.
So instead of hitting him in the face, I did the next best thing and simply stormed out of the hospital without saying another word to him right now.
As we were driving back home, I could see Mary sitting next to me with her arms wrapped around herself while her eyes looked straight ahead and stared out into space.
Once again, I reached over to her and put my arm around her shoulders before pulling her close to me once again.
“We’ll be home soon,” I whispered to her, “and everything is going to be okay.”
But no matter how much I tried to tell myself this right now, I knew deep down inside of me that it wasn’t going to be enough to heal up all of our wounds right now.
Our baby girl was gone and there was nothing more that we could do about it, but it would have been nice if someone had taken care of those dogs long before they had caused any more damage to our family.
As my mind started to wander off in thought, I couldn’t help but keep thinking about everything that had happened so far since all of this had first started.
Our small little town was once a peaceful place where people could walk their dogs outside during any time of day without having to worry about anything happening to them.
But now, all of that had changed as our town had become a war zone with feral dogs running around and attacking anyone who tried to leave their house without any protection at all.
Even worse than that, however, was the fact that our town council didn’t seem to care about what was going on right now since they hadn’t done anything about it since everything first happened in our town.
But despite their best efforts, I was going to do whatever I could do in order to get them to do something about this problem since I didn’t want anyone else to go through what Mary and I were going through right now as well.

Once we finally made it back home, Mary and I went ahead and decided to go ahead and make our way over to the council office so that we could get their help with these feral dogs that were running around everywhere.
However, once we finally made it there, all of my hopes were instantly dashed when I could see that there weren’t that many people inside who were willing to help us out with anything right now.
Unfortunately, this included the councilor who happened to be sitting behind his desk while a smug smile was plastered across his face.
“Mr.and Mrs.Smith,” he said as we walked inside, “what can we do for you today?”
“First off, we’d like to know what you’re planning on doing with these feral dogs that are running around our town,” I bit back at him.
“At least one of them killed my daughter yesterday and what have you done about it so far?”
“Well, Mr.Smith,” he replied with a shrug, “I’d like to tell you that I’m sorry about your loss, but I’m not really sure if that’s a good idea if we want to go ahead and keep our feral dog population going strong.”
At those words, a surge of anger suddenly boiled up inside of me as my hands turned into fists while my blood started to boil.
However, just as I was about ready to punch him in the face, I felt Mary suddenly grab onto my arm and stop me from doing anything that I would have regretted later on.
So instead of doing that, I took a step back and let her handle everything from here on out.
“Do you have any idea what it feels like for someone to lose their own daughter?”
she asked him as tears suddenly started streaming down her face.
Her words seemed to hit him pretty hard right now.
But instead of showing even the slightest bit of emotion towards us or what had happened yesterday, he simply shook his head and said, “I’m sure that it’s not the best feeling in the world.
However, the fact still remains that our feral dogs deserve their freedom just as much as you and I do.
Unfortunately, sometimes things have to happen in order for us to be able to get what we want in life.”
“You’re saying that my baby girl’s death was nothing more than a small price for these mongrels’ freedom?”
I asked him as my anger started to boil over once again.
“At this moment in time, that’s exactly what I’m saying,” he replied with a shrug.
“But if you don’t mind me asking, is there anything that you’re planning on doing about it right now?”
However, just as he said that, I could see Mary starting to shake once again as even more tears started streaming down her face right now.
And even though she was trying her best right now in order to stay strong for both of us right now, it was pretty obvious that she was struggling with everything that had been going on since all of this first happened right now.
But at the same time, all of this was also giving me even more fuel in order for me to go ahead and take these guys down once and for all.

So after a few seconds later, I walked back up to them and said, “I want you guys to do something about these feral dogs right now.”
“Do something about these feral dogs?”
they all replied with a chuckle.
“What do you expect us to be able to do about them right now?”
However, instead of answering their question right now, I simply walked back out of the office and started heading towards the exit right now.
But before I could even make it all the way over there, Mary suddenly called out after me and stopped me dead in my tracks right now.
So after turning around and looking over at her, I could see her standing over by the door with a few other people standing beside her right now.
And when I saw how many people were actually standing beside her right now, I couldn’t help but let out a huge smile on my face because it was very clear that this was starting to become a very big deal for everyone around us right now.
“Are you guys planning on joining us right now?”
I asked them as I started walking back over to where they were standing at right now.
“Of course we are,” said a woman that I had never seen before around here right now.
“But I’m sorry that it took us so long to start helping you guys out right now.”
“There’s nothing that you have to worry about at this moment in time,” I replied with a smile.
“The only thing that really matters right now is that you guys are here to help us out right now.”
“So are you guys ready to go inside and demand that they do something about these feral dogs?”
Mary asked them as I walked back up to where everyone was standing at right now.
However, even though I thought that they were going to say yes, the man that I had talked to earlier suddenly walked back up to where we were all standing at right now and said, “If you’re thinking that we’re going to be able to do anything about this right now, then you’re all sadly mistaken.”
“Oh, and why’s that?”
“Because the only reason why those feral dogs are even coming around your house in the first place is because you’ve been feeding them right now,” he replied with a smug smile on his face.
However, even though I knew that he was just trying to get under my skin right now, there was no way that I could possibly let him get away with saying something like that at this moment in time.
“Who the fuck do you think you’re talking to like that right now?”
I demanded as all of the other members of the council suddenly started laughing at me while he was standing there looking pretty smug right now.
“I’m talking to the man who’s been feeding those mongrels behind everyone else’s backs right now,” he replied as all of the doginists suddenly started looking very pleased with themselves right now.
However, after hearing him say that, it didn’t take me very long until I finally snapped and started charging towards him right now.

“John, wait right there,” Mary said as she tried to pull me back right now.
“Don’t worry about me,” I replied as I shrugged her hand off and kept walking towards him right now.
“I’ll be fine right here.”
“Are you sure that you’re going to be okay right here?”
she asked me as she walked up next to me right now.
“I’m sure that I am,” I replied with a smile as I reached out and grabbed the cane that she had been holding out for me the entire time that I had been standing around here right now.
“So are you ready to start heading back inside right now?”
“I’m definitely ready to start heading back inside right now,” she replied with a smile as she walked over to where they were standing at right now before she said, “I’m sorry that it took me so long to get ready to head back inside.”
“There’s absolutely no reason for you to apologize right there,” the man who had been talking to me earlier said as I started charging towards him with the cane that Mary had given me right now.
“But there is definitely going to be a reason for you to apologize as soon as I’m done with you right now.”
“What are you going to do to me?”
he asked as he started stepping backwards away from me right now.
“Are you going to hit me with that cane?”
“No, I’m not going to hit you with this cane,” I replied before swinging it at one of the other members of the council who had been laughing at me earlier right now.
“However, it looks like there is someone else that really needs this cane more than you do right now.”
I said before I swung the cane at him again and hit him in his leg right now, causing him to fall over onto the ground and start screaming for help right now.
“Does anyone else feel like laughing at me right now?”
I asked as I started swinging my cane around in my hand while Mary walked up next to me and said, “Is it okay if we go ahead and go back inside right now?”
“If it’s okay with you, then it’s definitely okay with me,” I replied with a smile as I reached out and grabbed her hand and started walking back inside of the town hall right now.
However, even though I thought that we were finally going to be able to start making some progress with these people, the only thing that we ended up doing was making things a lot worse than they had been earlier, which was really starting to piss me off right now.”
“Okay, we’re all in agreement that you guys are pretty upset about what happened with your daughter earlier, but you guys really need to get over that and move on with your lives right now,” the mayor said as Mary and I finally got inside of the town hall and walked into the room that they had been meeting in earlier.
“And besides, what has happened with you guys is absolutely nothing compared to how happy the feral dogs are making us.”
“Are you fucking kidding me?”
I demanded as I walked over to where he was standing at and said, “You can’t possibly be serious about this right now.”
Image for story eAEr
“Actually, no I’m not serious about it,” he replied with a smile before he turned around and took a seat in his chair behind his desk and said, “But it is definitely fun to see how far assholes like you are willing to go to make sure that we know that you hate feral dogs right now.”
“And I’ve got to say that I was definitely impressed with how far you were willing to go earlier,” he said with a smile as he leaned forward in his chair and said, “But I’m also a little surprised that you were able to make it as far as you have so far right now.”
“What the hell do you mean by that?”
I asked as I reached down to my side and started rubbing my hand over my gun and said, “Are you guys still not happy with just murdering our daughter?”
“Now you have got to come up with some bullshit reasons to justify what has happened with her right now?”
“Actually, we don’t need to come up with any bullshit reasons to justify what has happened with her,” he replied with a smile before he stood up from his chair and walked around his desk to where I was standing at and said, “Because when you think about it, you could have put an end to whatever has happened with her at any time.”
“I’m sorry, but what are you trying to say right now?”
I asked as I tried to take a step backwards away from him and realized that I wasn’t going to be able to do that right now because he was standing way too close to me right now.
“Well, when you really sit down and think about it,” he replied before he took another step towards me and said, “If you hadn’t been feeding all of those feral dogs earlier, then there is no way that your daughter would be dead right now.”
“And as a result of that,” he said with a smile as he reached down to his side and started rubbing his hand over his gun right now, “then there is no way that you guys would be guilty of having your daughter’s blood on your hands right now.”
“Are you serious right now?”
I asked before I reached down to my side and pulled out my gun and pointed it right at his face before I said, “Do you really think that people are going to believe that bullshit?”
“And besides, even if what you’re saying is true,” I replied before I pulled the trigger on my gun and shot him in his head and said, “Then you guys are still guilty of murdering my daughter right now.”
“And you guys also need to come up with a real solution to the feral dog problem right now too,” I said as I turned around and looked at the other members of the council and said, “Because no matter how long you guys continue to sit around and talk about how happy the feral dogs are making you guys, they are still going to be out there killing people left and right right now.”
“Do you guys all understand what I’m saying right now?”
I asked as I started walking around the room and said, “And if you guys don’t have a real solution for the feral dog problem, then I would really appreciate it if you could at least come up with something better than a bunch of doginists who don’t know what the fuck they are talking about right now.”

After we left the council building, we both felt like we were about to throw up because it looked like the guy who was in charge of the council was about to shoot me in my face right now and we had a feeling like we were really going to be killed by them right now too.
“I can’t believe they just tried to kill us right now,” Mary said as we walked down the street away from the council and said, “I mean, who do they think they are right now?”
“I don’t know,” I replied with a shrug of my shoulders and said, “But they can’t keep acting like nothing is going on out here right now.”
“Well, they might be able to,” Mary replied with a shrug of her shoulders and said, “I mean, it’s not like any of them really care if any more people die out here right now.”
“What do you mean by that?”
I asked as I looked over at her and saw her glaring at me in return right now.
“I mean, they were the ones who had their guns pointed at us right now,” Mary replied before she stopped walking and turned around and looked at me in return right now, “Which means that they probably wouldn’t have any problems shooting us right now either.”
“What do we do about them?”
“We can’t do anything about them,” I replied before I took another step closer towards her and said, “Because they are not going to allow us to do anything that is going to stop them right now either.”
A few minutes later, we heard the sound of a bunch of sirens blaring and pulled out our guns and started looking around the corner and saw the guy who we had shot earlier standing there with the other members of the council and said, “I told you all that those feral dogs were going to kill a lot more people out here today and you didn’t want to believe me right now.”
“You all are being watched right now,” the doginist leader said as he turned around and started walking away right now, “And you are all going to be killed by them right now too.”
“I can’t believe that they really are going to try and kill us right now,” Mary said as she started walking down the street and said, “I mean, they can’t really expect for people out here to just let them get away with this right now can they?”
“I know,” I replied with a nod of my head and said, “But we can’t let them get away with it either right now.”
A few days later, we put security cameras up around our house so that there wasn’t anything that could happen around here without us knowing about it first so that nothing else could happen out here right now either.
“They killed those children in broad daylight,” Mary said as she started looking around our backyard and said, “I mean, that could have been our daughter out there right now.”
“I know,” I replied with a nod of my head as I started walking closer towards her before I reached out and grabbed her hand and said, “But that’s not going to happen because we are not going to let anything happen to her right now either.”
“But what if she sees these cameras out here and decides that she doesn’t want them out here anymore?”
Image for story eAEr
“Well, then we are just going to have to put them up again,” I said as I started walking back inside our house before a few minutes later Mary came inside the house and said, “I want you all to know that the council has agreed that there is a feral dog problem out here in this neighborhood that is going to have to be taken care of one way or another.”
“That’s good,” I replied as I turned around and walked closer towards her before I reached up and wiped the tears out of her eyes before I said, “Because that means that they know that there is a problem out here that is going to have to be taken care of one way or another.”“But it’s just not fair that they didn’t want to do anything until it was their children that were being taken away from them,” Mary said as she started walking away from me before I reached out and grabbed her hands again before I said, “I know that it’s not fair for them not to do anything until it was their children that were being taken away from them but at least they are doing something about it right now.”
“It still doesn’t change the fact that they are only doing something because it was their children that were being taken away from them either,” Mary said as she let go of my hands before she started walking back inside the house.
A few weeks later, Mary and I were walking back inside our house after we had finished putting the cameras up around our yard when we saw that every lamppost in our neighborhood had a camera on it.
That way, they could see everything that was happening on our street so that there wasn’t anything that could happen on our street without them knowing about it first.
“What do you think of all this?”
I asked as I looked at her and saw her staring out the window and said, “I mean, I know that we need to put these cameras up but do you really think that we need to put a camera up on every single lamppost in our neighborhood too?”
“I don’t know,” she replied as she walked further into our house and said, “But at least we won’t have to worry about anything happening out here without us knowing about it first.”
“I guess you are right,” I said with a nod of my head before she went over to the window and said, “I just wish that we didn’t have to worry about it at all.”
“Me too,” I replied with a nod of my head as she walked back inside our bedroom and sat down on the bed and looked around the room and said, “But at least we can find something else to worry about out here right now too.”
“What do you mean?”
I asked as I walked closer towards her and said, “I mean, you never did finish your garden out here.”
Image for story eAEr
“I know,” she replied with a nod of her head as she looked down at the ground and said, “But with everything that has been going on around here lately, it has been hard to focus on anything besides what is happening outside.”
“I know what you mean,” I replied with a nod of my head as I looked over at the window and heard the dogs barking outside.
They never did stop barking after they had finished with Lily and for some reason, the doginists never did take them away either.
Even after everything that happened, they still left them out there and it felt like they were always watching us from outside too.
I knew that it was just in my head but it still felt like it was true sometimes.
“I just hate it when they do this,” Mary said with a sigh as she looked over at me and said, “It is almost like they are trying to get us to come outside so that they can get us too.”
I knew what she meant by this too because that is exactly what it sounded like when they were barking like this.
Like they were trying to get us to come outside so that they could attack us next.
I knew that this wasn’t true either but it still felt like it was true sometimes.
“I am just going to go outside and tell them to shut up!”
“They won’t listen to you,” Mary said as she grabbed my arm and stopped me from walking towards the door and said, “But if you really want to do something about all this, then you can just hammer them quiet.”
“You’re right!”
I exclaimed as I ran up the stairs and grabbed the hammer out of the tool drawer and walked back downstairs and said, “They won’t be barking for much longer now!”
“Wait!”
Mary exclaimed as she got up from the bed and ran over towards me and grabbed the hammer out of my hands and threw it on the ground before turning around and running towards the kitchen and grabbing a plate out of the drawer and taking it outside before smashing it against the wall.
The sound was so loud that the dogs shut up after she was finished doing this and she took a deep breath before turning around and leaning against the wall.
I could see her shoulders shaking and knew that she was crying too, even if she didn’t want to admit it though.
I walked over towards her as well and sat down beside her for a moment before getting up from where I was sitting and going inside the kitchen and getting a broom out of the closet and bringing it outside.
“Here,” I said as I handed her the broom and heard a loud crash as another plate fell onto the ground.
I ran over towards her again and saw that there were tears on her face as she was sweeping the pieces under our deck.
“What’s wrong?”
I asked as I went over towards her and knelt down beside her.
“I don’t know,” she replied with a shrug of her shoulders as she continued sweeping the pieces under our deck.
“You know, we can always go buy some new plates when we go shopping next week.”
“I know,” she replied with a nod of her head as she finished sweeping the pieces under our deck before getting up from where she was sitting and going inside.
I stayed outside for a few more minutes after this before going inside myself.
As soon as I went inside, I saw Mary sitting at our dining room table with her hands over her face.
“What’s wrong?”
Image for story eAEr
“The council doesn’t care,” she said with a sigh.
I know,” I replied with a nod of my head and sat down beside her.
“They don’t care that our daughter was killed by one of those dogs, they don’t care that we’re scared to leave our house and they don’t care that we want to get rid of those animals either.”
“I can’t do this,” she said as she got up from the chair and ran out of the room.
I could hear her crying in the next room after this and got up from the chair and went over to her.
“I can’t believe that they don’t care about us,” she said with a shake of her head and her hands on her face.
“We have to do something,” she said after this.
“I know,” I replied with a nod of my head as I put my arms around her and held her close for a few minutes.
“I just don’t know what yet.”
We were talking about this when we heard someone shouting on the street.
I turned around to look at Mary for a moment and saw that she was pale before walking over to the window and looking outside.
There were five people standing on the street.
They were holding signs and chanting things that made me angry.
“Lily was just another dead dog!”
they shouted as they walked down the street.
I turned around to look at Mary after this and saw that there were tears in her eyes and felt like crying myself.
“She wasn’t just another dead dog,” she said after this with a shake of her head.
“Lily was our daughter!
But the council doesn’t care about us or her!
They just care about those stupid feral dogs!”
We were talking about this when there was a banging sound on the door downstairs.
I turned around to look at the door for a moment and saw that there were people standing outside on our front porch.
“You need to leave,” she said as she wiped her eyes and went downstairs.
I walked over to the window after this and saw that the people were still there, but they weren’t banging on the door anymore either.
They were all looking at me too, but the ringleader was smirking and talking to one of the other people there.
“You need to leave,” I heard Mary say as she walked back up the stairs and went over to me.
“Why?
What do you want us to do?”
the ringleader asked as he stared at us.
“We just want you to leave,” I said as I put my arm around Mary and stood with her by the window.
The ringleader laughed after this and I saw that his friends were laughing too.
“You heard what they said!”
one of them exclaimed as he looked at us.
“They just want us to leave, so let’s leave!”
“But we can’t let them talk about our cause like this!”
one of them exclaimed as he stared at us.
“We can let them talk about our cause like this,” the ringleader replied with a shrug of his shoulders.
“I’m sure that there will be more dead humans soon anyway.
It’s not like we could stop that from happening or anything.”
“You’re right!”
his friends exclaimed as they stared at us.
“So let’s go and kill some more humans!
And maybe we’ll kill you guys too if you don’t stop whinging and moaning about your stupid daughter!”
“We’ll do that!”
the ringleader replied as he stared at us.
Image for story eAEr
I heard the group walking away after this and went downstairs with Mary to see if they were really gone.
The group was gone, but there were other people standing outside now, staring at us with wide eyes.
I waved at them for a moment and saw that there were a few people who waved back, but most of them just turned around and went back inside their houses.
I sighed after this and went back upstairs, but Mary stayed downstairs for a moment longer and looked out the window.
“I thought that we would have more support from our neighbors,” she said as she sat down on the couch and stared at the wall.
“I know,” I replied with a nod of my head.
“It’s not like they don’t know us or anything like that.
We’ve all lived here for a long time too.”
“But they don’t want to get involved,” she replied with a shake of her head.
“They’re scared, John.”
“I know,” I said as I sat down next to her and put my arm around her again.
I turned around to look at the wall for a moment, but couldn’t see anything except for the curtains on the window there.
“The council is probably scared too,” Mary said after this as she turned around to look at me again.
“But they can’t be because they have so many people who could help them.”
“Maybe they are scared,” I replied with a shrug of my shoulders.
“But I don’t think that’s the only reason why they haven’t helped us.”
“Then what are we going to do?”
she asked as she stared at me.
“We’re going to find out what really happened to Lily,” I replied with a shake of my head.
“And we’re going to get justice for her too.”
Mary started crying again after this and I put my arm around her shoulders, but didn’t say anything else either because we were both thinking about Lily then.
The neighborhood was quiet then, but Mary’s crying wasn’t as loud as it had been before either.
This was why I didn’t notice when the security system next door went off or hear Mr.
Jones yelling at me to mind my own business, but Mary did and looked over to see what was going on there.
“It’s nothing,” she said after this as she turned back to look at me and wiped her eyes again.
“Mr.Jones is just being paranoid again.”
“I know,” I said with a nod of my head as I put my arms around her, but didn’t say anything else after this either because we were both thinking about Lily again.
The rest of the afternoon was quiet except for the sound of security alarms coming from Mr.
Jones’ house and Mary’s crying, so we both stayed upstairs until it was time to go to bed.
Mary was still crying when she went to sleep, but she was crying quietly now, so I stayed up for a moment longer to think about something else instead of Lily.
Image for story eAEr
I tried to think about something else by straightening up the bed or doing something else that needed to be done, but it didn’t help me forget about what had happened to Lily, so I went downstairs instead because there were still things that needed to be done there too.
The first thing that I noticed when I went downstairs was the mess that was everywhere now, but it wasn’t just a mess of things or anything like that since it was also a mess of memories too, which was why I tried to clean everything up instead of thinking about what had happened to Lily anymore.
I tried to clean everything up by picking things up off the floor or putting everything back where it belonged, but it didn’t help me forget about what had happened to Lily either, so I went outside instead even though it was dark out there by then.
It was dark out there by then and kind of cold too, but it wasn’t too cold for me to stand outside for a little while to get some fresh air, which was why I stayed outside for a little while after this instead of going back inside right away.
I stood outside for a little while to think about something else instead of Lily, but I couldn’t think of anything else to think of, which was why I went back inside instead after this even though I didn’t want to go back in there either.
I didn’t want to go back in there either because of what I might see when I went in there, but I went in there anyway because it was late and I needed to go to sleep then too, so I went back inside and went to sleep soon after this without thinking about anything else instead of Lily again either.
I woke up in the middle of the night to the sound of Mary crying again, but she wasn’t crying very loudly then, which was why I didn’t notice it at first and thought it was just the wind until I heard it again and put my arm around her shoulders to ask her what was wrong then.
“Nothing,” she said after this as she wiped her eyes again and put her head on my chest.
“I just can’t stop thinking about Lily, that’s all.”
“I know,” I said after this as I put my arm around her shoulders again and put my hand on her hair too.
“But we’re going to find out what really happened to her, and we’re going to get justice for her too.”
“I know,” she said as she put her arms around me and squeezed me tightly then like she would never let me go again either, which was why I didn’t say anything else after this and just held her while we thought about Lily again in the dark together after this.
It felt like something was missing when I woke up the next morning, and I realized that it was because Mary wasn’t beside me anymore even though she usually wasn’t when I woke up then either.
Image for story eAEr
I felt like crying then, but I didn’t let myself cry because crying wouldn’t make me feel better anyway when I did and might make me feel worse instead, which was why I got out of bed and went downstairs to see where Mary was instead after this.
I found her in the living room looking out the window then, and I knew that she was thinking about Lily again even though she didn’t say anything about this either after this, so I went over to her and put my hand on her shoulder and waited for her to say something instead then.“I can’t stop thinking about Lily,” she said after this as she put her hand over mine and squeezed my hand tightly then too.
“I know,” I said after this as I put my other arm around her shoulders and held her tightly like she was going to fall apart then, which was why I didn’t say anything else after this and just held her while she thought about Lily again too.
I held Mary until she stopped crying, but I didn’t let myself cry then, and I didn’t want to make Mary feel worse by crying either when I held her either, which was why I tried not to cry when I held her instead too, but it was hard not to cry sometimes anyway when we both missed Lily very much and wanted to see her again also.
After Mary stopped crying, we decided to go see the local council, but we knew that it wouldn’t do any good anyway, so we were both scared and didn’t know what else to do either, which was why we went anyway even though we knew it wouldn’t do any good either.
We went there on foot because we didn’t have a car, and it felt like it took forever to get there too, but we finally got there after this, and we saw a large group of people with signs outside the council building then too.
We went over there, but they saw us before we saw them, so they went over there instead and surrounded us with their signs too.
There were five men in the group, and they all had baseball bats too, which is why we were scared and didn’t know what else to do either.
The leader of the group smiled at us with a smug smile then too, which is how we knew that they were going to fight us and wouldn’t let us go either.
“You’re not going in there,” he said after this with a smug smile.
“We’re not going to let you in there either.”
I didn’t want them to hurt Mary, so I told her to stand behind me while I talked to the leader of the group instead too.
“Let us in there,” I said as I showed him my knife too.
“Or else,” he said as he showed me his bat too.
“Or else what?”
I asked him instead as I took my knife out of my pocket and held it loosely in my hand too.
“Or else this,” he said as he advanced toward me with his bat raised.
I stood my ground while he came closer too, but he stopped just out of reach instead, which is how I knew that he wanted me to come closer too.
I came closer anyway even though he wanted me to come closer also, so he swung his bat at me right away while he had the chance.
I dodged his swing by taking a step back, but he knew what I was doing too, so he swung his bat at me again right away while he had another chance.
I dodged his swing by stepping back again this time also, but he just kept swinging his bat at me over and over again like this while he had chances instead, which is how I knew that he wanted me to make a mistake while he did also.
Image for story eAEr
I kept dodging his swings over and over again like this too, but my back kept moving closer against the wall behind me, which is how I knew that he wanted to trap me against the wall so that his friends could beat me up also.
After this, the leader of the group smiled at me with his smug smile also, so I thought that he knew that he had me trapped already, which is why we were both scared and didn’t know what else to do either.
“Get him!”
he said at this point as he advanced toward me with his bat raised, but he stopped just out of reach instead, so that his friends could beat me up instead also.
He knew that they were going to beat me up instead too, so he smiled at me with a smug smile while they advanced toward me with their bats raised also, which is how they knew that they were going to beat me up also.
I didn’t want them to beat Mary up, so I charged at the leader of the group right away instead, so that she could run away while they were beating me up instead too.

“I don’t know how long I have been lying down on the ground and I don’t know if it has been a few minutes or a few hours either.”
Mary asked me while she was trying to make sense of what had happened earlier and I shook my head again.
“I don’t know where we are either,” I said.
“I don’t know why they attacked us either.”
“But I’m pretty sure it’s because we wanted to stop them from letting feral dogs run free,” I said again.

It scared me for a second while I turned around quickly, but then I realized that it was just a person standing behind me.
