The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS April 7/18

This week for our #SoCs Linda has given us a two word prompt. Passive / Aggressive. Use one or both, bonus points if you start with one or the other. Do enjoy.

Rules and Pingback Here

Aggressive, they said she was, a wild child full of venom and hate. They had no idea what her life had been like.

They all decided she was a bad lot no point in wasting time on her, she would never amount to anything. So she was always put to the back of the class, left to her own devices.

She had no friends no one wanted to go near her because she smelt so bad. Yes an aggressive dirty almost animal.

At home it was the same she spent most of her time chained up in her room or outside in the yard, no matter the weather. Sometimes they would feed her sometimes not.

One day she stole a sandwich from one of the boys in her class and when he tried to retrieve it she damn almost killed him.

When they restrained her they noticed the red raw marks on her wrists. One teacher took her to the staffroom and bathed her wounds. Whilst doing so the teacher discovered she was filthy and was covered with cuts and bruises.

She was taken away from her sad excuses for parents. It took years to heal the scars, physical and mental.

The hospital knew how to treat her, with drugs and keeping her locked in her room. Often using restraints strapping her to the bed.

Slowly she responded to treatment she became meek, mild and very submissive. Always obedient never an action or word out of place. Then one day after 20yrs of obedience she slit an orderlie’s throat, smashed up her room. Then when they came into her room to restrain her for the first time in 15yrs she jumped through the window.

She bled to death from the wounds from the glass, every bone in her body broken in the fall from the 10th floor window.

The staff were so shocked. They all agreed it was so out of character, she was always so passive.
