55 Fiction

For a long time, she tosses and turns, the creak of bed springs giving her company in the silence of the night.

Her thoughts race and dart back and forth dragging her into the dark rooms of her mind.

All she wishes for is some undisturbed sleep.

But looks like he raped her head too.

My theme for this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is Crime Stories in 55 Words.

Today’s story, R is for Rape

  1. Was difficult to read this one. Too many people don’t realize what the survivor goes through. It’s the rapist who should never ever get even a minute of peace in his life, and yet, it’s the victim who suffers.

  2. And the irony is that it doesn’t even have to a violent rape. We hear of kids being sexually harassed by relatives all the time. But the marital rape stories usually never come out, because well… who’s going to believe them anyway! Then there is “date rape” which nobody talks about.

  3. Eish! as we say here in South Africa – it’s like ish or *&^$#**&#& – it’s said when one is shocked. We need to be shocked more often – into action. Thanks Shilpa …

  4. Sexual violence is one of the worst and leaves a deep scar for life; very sad and true. Well done shilpa, love the way you bring in stories – I can sense the passion in your posts !!
