Author's Notes: An Australian Flood-Auction fic for tsuki_no_bara.

Tamara was like other people, once. This is how she knows:
There were baby pictures in her purse, a toddler's handprints on her heart. Silver was for jewelry and knives for cooking, and the only language she spoke was English.
The truth is harder now.
Her car passes for home, these days. The trunk is stocked with weapons, she buys salt in bulk, and the exorcism ritual is second nature.
All she has from the past are her wedding ring and a lock of her daughter's hair.
At night, their names bleed out of her, too broken to be silenced.
