THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 168

Hit Her Again

“Don’t talk to me!” Lindsey shouted
from the top of the stairs.
Was her voice shaking?
Her pace quickened.
I leaped up the stairs two at a time.
I had to say something to her.
As Lindsey ran down the hall,
someone tripped her
and said, “Hit her again!”
Did they really think I’d do that?
Lindsey worked herself into a frenzy
trying to get up,
but I was already standing over her.
I looked into her terrified face
and said, “I’m sorry.”
Even though you’re a liar, I’m sorry.
“That’s it?” someone else demanded.
“Hit her again!”
I walked away.
