Thanks to Bikurgurl for hosting #100WordWednesday.
I’m seventeen and I wish I wasn’t old enough to understand what was happening through the trees.
There were five men laughing around a garbage can bonfire. The worst part was the two women crying and begging the men to stop as each man took turns with the women, raping them.
I knew I couldn’t intervene. I felt helpless but then I remembered my smartphone in my pocket. It had a camera with many megapixels and zoom.
Above the pandemonium no one heard me snap as many pictures as I could. I walked back to my house from the ravine and I called the police; they said I was a hero after.
The problem is some things in life you can’t unsee.
