No Qualms

She was all over the place in the little sleepy town.

In all the local TV channels and on the front page of the only newspaper.

People were talking about her on the street corner, in the busy market place and everywhere.

Reporters moved around the gullies trying to talk to her for sensational news bytes.

She realized she could not hide the truth anymore from her blind aging mother.

Police would be anytime soon.

No qualms and guilt about the incident last night- she spoke to herself once again .


He violated her and had no right to live anymore.


Written for Write Tribe Weekend prompt “She realized that she could no longer hide the truth”.
