I know what I have to do. She's suffering. I have to make it stop.
I have to kill her.
I hold her rag-wrapped body in one hand, and try to break her neck in the effortless
twisting motion I've watched others give 'mercy' with in earlier days.
There's tears running off my chin and I hear myself moaning "Please
die... Please don't be alive... Please STOP"
But she can't stop.
And I can't stop it like this.
I go outside
I take a heavy stone.
I put her down gently, gently on the drive...
And then I drop the rock.
