I thought a moment about the next words to come from my mouth. I didn’t know how to respond. What do you say? Something so relentless, so rude. How do you move from that? Where do you go? I just sat there, mouth closed and eyes open. What could I say?
I didn’t move. I didn’t speak. I didn’t do anything. I just sat there, motionless. The words just slipped from her lips like honey dripping from a bee. She was emotionless as if she had done this a million times. A sociopath with no notions of empathy for the words she had just assaulted me with.
What did I do to deserve this? What had I done to make this nightmare a horrible reality? What did I do?
