But It Keeps On Lingering...

.... previous


Uncle Reily was sympathetic. Every detail of Karla's past was known to him except for some issues that she preferred not to unravel and safely kept only to herself.

"How can I have the heart to hate him if all memories keep lingering day after day, Uncle? Fresh memories guarded by truth not lies... by trust not doubts... by love not hatred? How could I let it slip away?" Karla was blaming herself for what happened. She told Uncle Reily everything that transpired that evening when she and Jon finally said good bye. She was constrained to recollect the moment she never had expected to happen. Her journal avowed that unforgettable episode in her life.

"It was against my rule to step into his door but the will of my heart directed my feet. My hands were cold... my body was shaking. I felt like I was freezing to death. Only a step away and there I was... meeting face to face the nightmare of my life. I knew all along he was there. What drove him to hide himself from me? Why did he hurt me? Of all people... why must he?"

"A week had passed but the bitterness brought about by that frightful night remained deep within myself. I could not condemn him without trial but I knew he's guilty beyond any doubt."
