Day 7: Guilty

This year's theme is a story divided among 26 posts. Fear not though,the  entries can be read as stand alone pieces of flash/poetry.

DL 08 AA 1000 
The number that changed everything; that catapulted her from anonymous do-gooder to a full-blown activist. She didn't hide behind the garb of 'confidential sources' whilst declaring to the world the identity of the 'child killer' as he was dubbed. No. Sweet, innocent and ferociously determined Maryam gave her statement on national television. 
Her phone is engaged when I call. But her face is splashed all across TV along with the eight year old boy who is the only witness of the killings. I can't help but shiver at the thought of all the unwanted attention she is attracting. 
We still don't know who the car belongs to. Here's to hoping that it isn't some 'rich, spoilt brat' as Maryam so eloquently puts it. 

Crazy. This is insane. You shouldn't have interfered Maryam.
In a country where the law is literally blind,
It's foolish to think justice will always prevail...

  3. An 8 year old witness, eh? I wonder how a court would see that witness.
