Mikki is lying on her side on the bathroom floor next to the tub, a thin stream of blood trickling from a cut on her forehead. I crouch next to her and put my fingers on her neck to check her pulse. It seems strong, maybe just a tad fast.

“Mikki?” I call out again. “Mikki, can you hear me?”

I scoop her up in my arms and that’s when I see it. I nearly drop her body onto the floor at the sight of it.
