Escape

"Open the goddamn door!"

It was the most terrifying whisper she has ever heard.  The small window -- her freedom -- is too small.

"N-n-no! Please stop..." , as she curled herself into the far corner of the bathroom.

When the door latch turned slowly, all she can do is close her eyes and whimpered, "please..."

I pictured a battered wife, but it surely could have been a child. Very scary. Hard to imagine but I know this happens a lot. How sad.

My 55 is up.

I'm so glad you were limited to 55 words. Wife or child, in either case it's horrifying.
