His eyes had a glazed look to them, a look that filled Scarlet with dread. Her mother didn't seem to notice. She put her hands on her hips, staring him down. I'll make popcorn. Not without my apology. Scarlet stood there helplessly as her mother attempted to meet the monster's eyes.
When he dodged her gaze, Mom stepped in front of the television, arms crossed over her chest, purposely blocking his view. For a split second, Scarlet could almost see the reflection of her ancestors — the proud Zuni tribe that had once driven Spanish conquistadors from New Mexico — reflected in her mother's angry black eyes. But it was gone as soon as it came, forcing Scarlet to face reality once again. Her mother was no fierce tribal warrior of old, ready to defend her land and property, but merely a shell of a woman who had downed too many rum and cokes at dinner.

More like liquid stupidity. The monster sighed deeply. Your fat ass is blocking the set. Scarlet's mother's face turned purple. In one fluid movement, she turned, grabbing the television set and throwing it out the sliding glass door behind her. The closed sliding glass door. Scarlet gasped as the box crashed through the windowpane and smashed onto the back porch in a cloud of sparks and smoke and broken glass. For a moment, the monster just stared out the window in stunned disbelief.
Then he rose to his feet and started toward her mother. She stared back at him defiantly, as if daring him to do his worst. The look on his face told Scarlet he didn't need a double dare. She threw herself in his path, a vain attempt to shield her mom from what was coming. The monster tried to shove her aside, but she stood her ground, throwing her full weight against him. He staggered, the alcohol and whatever else he was on slowing his reflexes enough to give her a slight advantage.
She'd take it.

Her hands shot out, shoving him as hard as she could. He flailed, losing his footing, and for a brief moment she thought she had him. But then his hands latched on to her arms, his ragged fingernails digging into her skin. Together they tumbled, following the trajectory of the television set through the broken glass window and onto the porch outside. Scarlet screamed as heat slashed at her arm and her ankle wrenched violently.

Are you okay? The monster was already on his feet.
A moment later, Scarlet heard the bedroom door slam, and her mother came running around the side of the trailer. But Scarlet wasn't frightened anymore. She was pissed. She rose to her feet. Mom, you have to call the cops. Her mother was silent for a moment. I can handle him, okay? Just go to Maddie's and wait for me to call. With that, her mother turned, heading back around the house and through the front door. Scarlet watched her go, fury warring with helplessness.get link

Half of her wanted to storm into the trailer and face the monster head on. But the other, wiser half knew it wouldn't do any good.
It would only put her mother in more danger. A heaviness sank to her stomach as she forced herself to turn, to limp through the trailer park on her sore ankle. As she made her way down the street, she could feel the cold, curious stares of her neighbors, hidden behind closed shades and closed doors. In a normal neighborhood, someone probably would have called the cops for her.

Here, they all had too many secrets of their own. She passed the trailer of her old babysitter, Maddie, which sat on the outskirts of the park. The lights were out; Maddie was likely asleep and Scarlet didn't want to wake her, didn't want to drag her into yet another mess — didn't want to see the pity she'd knew she'd find in her eyes. Instead, she dove into the woods, dodging the thick underbrush and gnarled cedar trees until she came to a familiar clearing.
Dropping to her knees, she pushed back the overhanging brush and crawled into the small cave behind the concealing foliage. She and Mac had found this secret hideout back when they were children and it had served as their official pirate base camp ever since. She sighed deeply, lighting the candles she'd stashed in the corner. If only Mac were here now. He'd know what to do. She felt a sharp twinge and looked down at her arm, annoyed to realize it was still bleeding.
Bleeding quite hard, in fact — the glass must have cut deep. A little scared, she yanked off her sweater, wrapping it around her arm to put pressure on the wound.
