I love this kind of story: Stephen King-ish. Although the mother has no backstory to support her actions, I enjoyed the story more than I expected. You inspired me to write something in line with your horror tale.
"Sometimes you need to believe that everything was just fine
Sometimes you need to assumed that everything never changed
Sometimes you need to pretend that it was just ok
Sometimes you need to know that everything you thought are not really the same
Because there is no permanent things in this world
And their is long lasting to hold on...."

Eienni,I will write till the end of time...
