Finding Kim

Everyone knows me as Kim, it's just that everyone has a different perception of who Kim is...

Kim is working towards her master in microbiology. She is intelligent, attractive and looks forward to her very prospective future. But then someone walks back into her life, just as she is getting over her tortured high school past.

She dreamt of seeking revenge but she soon comes to realise that this girl - the girl who made her teenage years a living hell - has, perhaps, already paid the price...

11. Come Out, Come Out Wherever You Are

 

Looking up at me is a wide-eyed and shivering little boy that is still in nappies: the pungent smell in such an enclosed area is proof. I gather the boy into my lap and rock him gently, saying, everything is going to be all right everything is going to be all right over and over again. I stop abruptly when the man comes barging into the room.

“Come out, come out wherever you are!” He says in a sing-song tone.

I want to scream, but I have to protect this innocent little child from that monster.

“You can't hide forever!”

Salty tears stream down my cheeks. My entire body trembles.

“If you come out then the boy doesn't get hurt but if you don't... well I guess that's on your conscience,” he makes a tutting sound. “You don't want the boy to get hurt, do you? Such a fragile, innocent little child.”

I move Tommy off my lap and stand up. I press my palm against the door and step out of the wardrobe.

“Ah, there we go!” His predator smile appears. “Such a heroic thing to do, but also a very, very stupid thing at the same time.”

I want to wrap my arms around myself and fall to my knees, begging for mercy. But I don't; I straighten my posture and hold my head high.

“I've got to admire how gutsy you are,” the man says before shaking his head in mock sadness. “It's a shame that it's not going to help.”

His fist connects with my temple and I fall. My vision blurs and my surroundings spin. Another blow to my stomach. I grunt and try to stand up, but my stomach chooses that moment to turn itself inside out.

I hear voices but they seem so far away. Several blurry figures file into the room. Someone drops to the ground beside me.

“What's your name, love?”

“Kim.”

And then everything goes black.
