I haven't written in awhile so I apologize if it's a bit hard to read.
A long time ago, a woman named Helen adopted a baby girl named Lisa. Lisa's parent's were very good friends of Helen. Sadly, Lisa's mother Alice died in childbirth and her husband Paul hung himself out of grief. Helen loved Lisa with all her heart and vowed to protect her with her life.
Lisa was turning 25 soon. According to the will of Lisa's biological grandfather, she would inherit a large amount of money when she turned 25. Helen was very concerned about this, Alice was only 24 when she died so she could not inherit the money. Similarly, Alice's three brothers died before they became 25. Helen kept Lisa inside the house on her birthday and was told to never leave the house. Lisa was confused, yet she obeyed her adoptive mother and kept to the house, but thought it would be alright to stroll outside the garden for awhile. In the garden, she found the neighbor's dog, Lisa had always liked the dog and reached out to pet it. But then the dog attacked her and mauled her. By the time Helen heard Lisa's screams, the dog had already gotten her in a bad way. Lisa died on the way to the hospital. Helen was filled with grief at losing her only daughter. The dog's owner's tried so hard to apologize again and again, their dog was not usually like this and would play with Lisa on occasion.
Helen was lost in her own thoughts. She mused on how ironic it was that all of Alice's family was dead, and now Lisa. When Alice died, Helen was given some of her belonging's by Paul before he killed himself. It was a collection of items and what most stood out was a few diaries that belonged to Alice's brothers and one from her father. Helen read Alice's diary first, in one of the last entries she talks about a street beggar whom she helped whose name was Bianca. After finishing Alice's diary, the next one she read that of one of her brothers. His name was Allen and in the later entries he wrote in length of his girlfriend, named Bianca as well, and the rocky relationship they had. Helen remembered him, he died one night when he and his girlfriend were arguing that he didn't see the oncoming truck that crashed into them. But Helen was wondering about this Bianca, surely they could not have been the same person? Next she read Mark's diary, one of the entries talks about how he rescued a little girl named Bianca who had fallen off a boat. He died of pneumonia a little later that week. The next diary belonged to Percy. He had died so young as a result of a fight at college. Apparently he had been drunk and bullying a girl named Bianca whose boyfriend beat him up so badly that he died the next day. It looked like that last pages had been torn off.
Helen was getting an uneasy feeling now. Just who was Bianca? But none of these Biancas seemed to be the same person. Helen held herself together as she read the last diary which belonged to Rodrigo, Alice's father. It seemed that later in life he had adopted a young eight year old girl named Bianca. She was born with severe albinism which apparently meant that she was very nearly blind and hypersensitive to light. However still, Rodrigo loved Bianca like his own daughter and raised her along with the rest of his four children. He was concerned that his sons seemed to hate Bianca and always told Alice not to play with her. Rodrigo hoped one day that they might get along and even put Bianca in his will giving her an equal share and a little extra to help her pay for medication.
The brothers hated Bianca, she was a freak. She would always stare like she looked into their souls despite the fact that she couldn't see. When their father died, they went all out on her. Going so far as to hang Bianca up in the sun. It burned her and she screamed til she could scream no more. They told everyone that she had a seizure. And they accepted this because she was an ill girl.
Helen felt something drive her to her neighbor's house. She demanded to see their dog. And on the dog's collar, was a single name: Bianca
