Beneath the Floor

Look, she said she wanted to. It’s not like I made her. Things just got out of hand, that’s all.

Maybe I handled it bad. Sure. I admit it. I ain’t perfect. I never meant to hurt her. Honest. I just wanted her to quit hollering.  And then, like I said, it got out of hand.

It was over before I knew it. Seeing her lying there like she was just sleeping made me sad. I had hoped so much this would be perfect. Then she had to go and ruin everything by hollering.

But they won’t never find nothing.

  1. He’s a creepy one. This is a disturbing read – I can hear him talking, believing he was justified in doing what he’s done. Great character building.

Whatever.
