Uncaring Touch

 

The moment he reached for my breasts

I froze up

My inner fear awakened by my anger

My skin felt cold

My head felt heavy

My body, numb with fear, tried to squirm free of his uncaring touch

 

Suddenly

I remembered the advice of my mother:

“Be obedient to your new husband!”

 

But brave me

I never kept a jumble of meaningless words in my head
