Sitting on the grass, I put my head on my folded knees. The dusk turns to a moonless night when I look at the sky. Something is not right. My house suddenly seems distant. I feel someone come behind me.
‘Who’s there?‘ I ask without turning.
The temperature drops down and I feel a shiver run down my spine when I hear a lullaby. The one he used to sing. I quickly turn around at the sound but see no one there. I try searching for the source of the sound but I see no one.
‘Why are you alone, little Ana?‘
I start shuddering at the voice.
‘I am not alone, my family is here!‘ I whisper, pointing in the direction of my house.
‘No, your family isn’t here.‘ He whispered near my ear. His words start biting my skin like ants.
‘Sinners do not have a family dear.‘ He added with a diabolic laugh. This time his words whipped me like a cane.
‘I am no Sinner‘ I tried standing while screaming. I am suddenly flung on the ground.
‘You are a sinner, you lying bitch! You chose the path of a sinner.‘ the black figure snarled at me as he appeared from nowhere.
‘YOU KILLED A HUMAN WITH YOUR OWN HANDS! WHAT KIND OF HUMAN YOU ARE HUH? YOU MURDERER!‘ he raged while coming near me.
I was a shuddering mess by now but I tried to muster all my courage and said ‘I didn’t kill anyone, you don’t know me!‘
‘You killed him, don’t lie to me‘
‘I didn’t kill him. I was just defending my sister from her molester’ I sobbed.
The black figure was now standing in front of me and slowly his face was coming to light. He held my arms tightly to the point of breaking my skin. His face was now clear and I was stunned ‘ You lying bitch, You killed your own uncle. What kind of a person you are! ‘ said my uncle with rage in his eyes.
I pushed him with all my might and screamed ‘You are not my uncle! You are the bloody molester of my sister. I saved my sister from your claws.‘
‘But who will save you from me now?’ He said as he lurched forward and gripped my throat. My air supply reduces as he tightens his grip. I try to pry his hand away but darkness comes and blankets me.
Suddenly, I get up with a start and gasp for air. My sister looks at me with concern in her eyes.
‘Same nightmare?’ she asks.
I nodded my head with a sad smile. She hugs me tightly and whispers a prayer.
I try sleeping again with comfort because she is here with me.
No matter how my nights are tormented but her life is bigger than anything.
