"No, only Maya knows exactly who did it. Mommy, this incident has hurt her deeply. I think she was too afraid, that's why she refused to talk about it. We should probably help her overcome that fear before she can open up."
Nicole felt relieved when she saw how observant and mature Kyle was.
"All right, Mommy knows what to do. I'll try my best to help Maya out."
Nicole then recalled how scared Maya looked when she was applying acupuncture to herself with the silver needle last night.
Maya hid in a corner and whispered, "Can you please stop using the needle, Mommy?" When I asked her why, she said, "Because it hurts, Mommy! Don't ever poke people with needles, okay?" I didn't think much about it at the time as I thought she was just afraid of needles like every other kid out there, but it turns out that she was abused with needles before! Who the hell would do such a cruel thing to a child? This is unacceptable!
