A man from the shadows...
I sit on the top shelf.
I fall, my back hits the floor.
My head hits the cold tile.
I sit up, and then dart toâ€¦
the object on the other side of the room.
I grab it. Clutch it in my rough palms.
Blood drips from my handâ€¦
and then falls and hits the white tile.
Before I run away I look up andâ€¦
stare at the man hiding in the shadowsâ€¦
in the corner of the room. Then I run.
I trip the object goes into me. I scream.
The man comes out from the shadowsâ€¦
stands over me and then says, â€œThat what
you get for running with scissors.â€
He picks me up. I scream in pain. He
pulls the object out of me. I scream again.
Blood splatters onto his pale white face.
Blood drips and hits the white tile. I survived.
The man lays me at his feet my t-shirt soaksâ€¦
up the puddle of black and red blood.
I touch my belly. Itâ€™s bleeding. A chunkâ€¦
of me is missing, but I still sit there breathing.
My life will be scared.
