the accomplice

Staring at her hands to avoid the jurors’ intrusive eyes, she spat out answers. Each word bitter and heavy on her tongue.

A guilty verdict would surely dig a needle in his arm. So she swallowed the truth and set herself free.

  1. I love how you’ve played with the theme–spitting out words, the taste bitter and heavy, and then swallowing the truth. Great work.


  2. Wonderful how you’ve worked with eating words, espy swallowing the truth. Given the title though, I share Cyn’s sentiments about her going free.
