Carla Kovach – What She Did
I live a small life: a one-bedroom apartment, clothes that help me blend into the background, just a few friends who don’t know my whole story. Everything has to be simple, ordered, in its place.
It gives me the illusion that I’m in control. Even though I know I never can be.
Twenty years ago, I lost everyone I ever loved, and they say it was all my fault.
I’ve tried to make sure I could never hurt anyone again, but it’s hard to live any kind of life without letting anyone get close to me.
And then come the sirens; the knock at the door.
If I’d done something terrible, I would know, wouldn’t I?
