The hearse drove by our mailbox at what seemed to me to be an appallingly slow pace.I did not know the deceased or I may have had more patience. My chaotic lifestyle had led to me being stuck in this nondescript safe house for the past month unable to go out. I was unfortunate to have witnessed a Korean gangster being shot and was feeling very homesick, a prisoner of circumstance until the trial, illegible for parole as the only witness, forbidden to contact family or friends.Feeling so trapped made me wish I had been quicker on the uptake and fled the scene instead of becoming even more of a victim and living in fear of reprisals. Even my small stature was adding to my feelings of total insignificance and helplessness.Copyright 2016 alilee. All rights reserved.
