The silent girl( 1 min read)


I’m new to this city.

This place is my favorite; it’s only a few steps away from my apartment. I silently watch the people – the grumpy widow, that newly married couple, the grieving man and that little girl in her father’s arms.

They hardly ever notice me. I read their expressions since their language is foreign to me.

That’s what I like the most here. I can choose to be myself, not a mute wife or an obedient daughter.

But sooner or later they’d find out my real identity –

Meera Basu, who murdered her alcoholic and abusive husband.
