Please, take a moment. (It continues)

..and closer. Very slowly yet almost immediately. The man now was standing just a few steps away from her. Samaya felt the need to run or yell but she couldn’t. Something about his eyes kept her still. As if his eyes had clasped her tiny little hands tightly. She then looked at her feet, hoping that he would leave. Hoping that she could go back to think about the sun and the sky again or go back and hug Nieah tightly and never let go off her or go back to Amma (mom) and tell her that she loved her even in the moments she didn’t say it or go back and send a reply to her Abba’s (Dad’s) two nights old letter.

All this time the guy was just staring at her. He kept the box near her feet and kneeled down to her level.

“This isn’t mine.” Samaya somehow muttered. The guy slowly held her right leg with his left arm and asked in a rather rough tone,

“Are you sure?”.

She nodded her linen-scarf-covered-head a little as she took a step backwards. Atleast what felt like a step behind but she barely could. Samaya felt something. Like a strong wave of panic or fear in her body and her heart was racing. At last she yelled the words “Amma” but all she could hear was silence. The guy had covered her mouth tightly with his large hands. She struggled with her feeble arms and legs. She kept kicking and tried hitting the man, but nothing. She tried running, but nothing. She tried screaming, but nothing. She tried waking up, but nothing.

A light drizzle started and wind blew hard. The old big wrought-iron gate banged shut. Two months later they found her body. A seven year old then never woke up. And, a seven year old now knows why roaming around at night felt like a nightmare.

Now you decide what or who to blame.
