It was Dolly who started the game

Mommy and Daddy gave me Dolly for my 7th birthday and that night she started talking to me. I always wanted a sister and now I had Dolly to play with and talk to. Mommy was worried at first but Daddy said it was ok because little girls like me needed to play with our Dollies. Mommy would watch though and Dolly didn’t like it so we would hide from mommy when she was cleaning and play under the stairs or in the closet so mommy couldn’t watch us. Dolly told me about her and where she was from. How she grew up in New York City and was killed by a man who broke into her house. She told me that she was a singer in a night club that sold drinks that only adults could drink and that she was a bad girl even as an adult.

Mommy and Daddy got mad at me when I told them about Dolly and the stories she told me. When they took Dolly away from me I cried for days and wouldn’t eat or drink anything. I got really sick and Daddy gave me Dolly back but Dolly was really mad at Mommy and Daddy. She said we shouldn’t talk to them for a little while, and so I wouldn’t talk to them. I don’t really know how long Dolly and I played the quiet game with Mommy and Daddy but one day a man came to our house and started asking me questions. Dolly said he would take her away again if I answered and I should just say what she says. When the man left Dolly had me leave her in the kitchen so she could listen to the grownups talk and when I came and got her later she was very angry. Dolly said that Mommy and Daddy didn’t want me anymore and that if I didn’t do exactly as she said they were going to send me away forever and they would break Dolly. So that night, after they went to bed, Dolly and I went to the kitchen and I got Mommies big knife for Dolly. They were sleeping in their bed, Daddy had his arm across Mommies tummy. Mommy screamed louder than Daddy when I stabbed him, but she didn’t move, she just kept screaming. At least until the 3rd time I stabbed her too. Then they just laid there and watched while I kept stabbing them. When the officer came into the bedroom I was still playing with Mommy, Daddy and Dolly but he didn’t want to play with us. In fact, he got sick in the hall. Poor Mommy will have to clean that up when she is done playing with me and Dolly. 

I don’t really know what happened next. Someone gave me a shot and I fell asleep and when I woke up I was here. In this room with green walls and the people in the next room screaming. But Dolly is here with me and I have some new friends who open my door for me and we play. Toby is my favorite new friend and Lilyana is really nice and pretty but none of them can replace my Dolly.
