As soon as my words ended, my tears began. I had to curl up into a ball and close my eyes against a world I couldn't understand. I wished I could close my mind to thoughts and memories too. But I couldn't, they still hurt bad; so instead I concentrated on my tears and emptied my fear into my sobbing, letting the sorrow and confusion and fear do what they would to my shaking body.
Gran was upset by my sudden tears. "I don't understand," she said.
Sheriff Cole said "Reckon maybe I do, now" and he walked purposefully out.
