Unexplainable pain tearing my heart
Sitting on the floor with with my wrapper sprawled on the ground.
Mother tries to comfort me but I can't be comforted.
She eulogizes me but her words make no meaning to me.
"Amope my daughter, You can't tell Kabiyesi. If you do, your father will be killed and I'll be a widow" She says.
Her words irritate me.
"No! He killed and must be killed too" I shout, getting up and looking at her with bloodshot eyes.
She breaks down in tears and deep down in my heart, I know I can't hurt her........
