[Insert story title]

Dorothy began speaking of her own attack back before we’d known each other well.  She explained how she’d lived in Lubbock through high school, and how the demons had made her attack herself then, through self-inflicted cuts, bites, and scratches.  She said that was the only way she could feel pain, after the demons attacked.  Dorothy said once when she’d cut herself too deep, her parents had found her, and taken her to the hospital.  And after months of anti-psychotic drugs and various antidepressants, the voices still spoke to her.  Dorothy said, they’d told her to do things like drive into a lake, or drown herself in tequila.
