Her mother swung at her with the hammer but she moved and the hammer only grazed her head. "I'm doing this for your own good— they're after us," Mrs. Davis said. "I love you so much that I have to kill you to save your souls." Mrs. Davis then handed her the hammer and ordered her to help drag a mattress into thc hall.
