A Vengegul Spirit


‘Because … I want to eat all those who hit me.’

I am 16. I’ve been here 2 years. I take medicine so that I am not so afraid. When I was 13, those boys caught me. They took me to a bad place, they made me do bad things. My stepmother organized all this. She told them how to find me. When I screamed in pain she told them to hurt me more. I cut myself many times, I drank kerosene, I ran away. The police found me and sent me here. Everyone looks at me strangely, I think they will hit me at any moment. Why can’t I go home?
