            “Oink!” a sniffling snout pushed into my face. I tried to ignore it, but the pig only burrowed deeper.copyright protection4PENANAI9O4NuvY25

            “Ahhh…” My head was ringing. My hand found a large welt right over my temple. Had I fallen? I got to my feet, it was shaky but I could stand. What happened to my head? I removed my hands from my head and blinked, readjusting my eyes. That’s when I saw him. “Oh my god!” I knelt by my stepfather’s body. His torso was covered in blood. His glossy eyes look over my head and bored into the ceiling. He was cold to the touch, he had probably died right after she had knocked me out. She…it started to come back. The naked woman, the one with mismatched eyes, she must have done thiscopyright protection4PENANAIQEEWYDE9N

            I stood up and looked around. Why hadn’t she killed me too? Was she still here? I lunged for the phone and dialed the number for the police.copyright protection4PENANAFMoTlXX0Sh

            “911 what is your emergency?”copyright protection4PENANAnAqcEeH9dK

            I opened my mouth, but I couldn’t bring myself to say it. I couldn’t admit out loud that my stepfather had died. That would make it official. That would make it real. A sob escaped my lips. Tears flew from my eyes. Stilling holding the phone to my ear I began to cry. I was able to stifle most of the noise at first, but then I lost it and dropping to my knees became overpowered. The operator on the other end of the line must have heard me crying and was now desperately asking for my address and to tell her what had happened.copyright protection4PENANAfVAUAwTdb2

            “Oink.” Vestido nudged my thigh. I dropped the phone in order to pick him up. I cradled the animal tight against my chest and wept. I had been counting down the days until I could leave him. I had hated how much he drank, hated how he looked at me. Hated how he had stolen my future from me. But he was my family…all that was left. Now my family was gone, my stepfather was dead, and it was too much.copyright protection4PENANA1ROpKanIaf

            The police arrived shortly after that. The door was kicked in and heavily armed men burst in and pinned me to the ground. “We have the suspect detained, one John Doe with stab wounds to the chest.”copyright protection4PENANAZyPqKtEsDR

            “He’s my dad!” I screamed. “She killed him!”copyright protection4PENANAcSNMMnjFBv

            “Another body back here!” a voice echoed throughout the house. “Naked, knife still stuck in her arm.”copyright protection4PENANAICmx27HpQR

            “She’s still breathing.”copyright protection4PENANAEPpugaXUCB

            “What happened here?” I was asked.copyright protection4PENANAMOtzBgXVWz

            “She killed my stepfather.” I told them. “She attacked me and then killed my stepfather.” I pointed out the swollen mound near my temple. “She’s crazy, she killed my stepfather.”copyright protection4PENANAqEcNceUTEL

            “Miss, we’re going to take you to the hospital. I’m sorry for what happened here today. But we’re going to have to ask you some questions.” It was then that they carried out her body. They were rushing her to an ambulance, but in her blood deprived comatose state her eyes hung half open as she laying motionless and unconscious. I saw that her eyes were no longer mismatched.copyright protection4PENANALiAbNRlLLY

            “She killed my stepfather!” I screamed, tears dripping off my chin. “She’s a monster! A psychopath! SHE DID THIS!”copyright protection4PENANAmyMQ8o65j3

            “Calm down ma’am, we’re going to get to the bottom of all this. And I swear to you, whoever did this will see justice.”copyright protection4PENANAFJIRxU6sOK

            “SHE DID THIS!” I screamed once more. How could they not see? I looked down as a tarp was pulled over my stepfather’s body.copyright protection4PENANAdz3NKQF6Bq

            “Ma’am?” the officer was looking at me. “I know this is the last thing you want to do right now, but we have questions.” I tore my eyes away from the tarp and met their gaze. “I can’t help but notice all the alcohol bottles around the house. Was your stepfather a drinker?”copyright protection4PENANA4YZQO7fVdy

            “He was a drunk.” I muttered. I instantly felt ashamed. How could I badmouth the dead, much less my own family?copyright protection4PENANAYSiGKPBQhp

            “Had he been drinking today?”copyright protection4PENANABuZFiJvXQ7

            “Yes.” I nodded.copyright protection4PENANAoU5nLUu0PI

            “Now I know you’re his stepdaughter, but the other woman…was she your mother?”copyright protection4PENANAyNAQulG6cX

            “My mother is dead.” I informed him.copyright protection4PENANAvNsvtLfZI5

            “I’m sorry to hear that.” He cleared his throat. “So this woman, she is of no relation?”copyright protection4PENANA67ZcuK7ZKW

            “I’ve never seen her before today.” I muttered. “She just showed up and hit me, then she did that.” I pointed to his body.copyright protection4PENANAIjKjaeERkQ

            “You’ve never seen her?” the officer asked. I nodded. “But your stepfather knew her?”copyright protection4PENANAPQEhm72B7L

            I was taken aback by the question. “I don’t know.” I admitted. Had he known her?copyright protection4PENANAGeSGqnrync

            “Miss it’s important that you try to remember everything you possibly can.” the officer insisted.copyright protection4PENANAu5vepGt3xO

            “I’d never seen her before, and I doubt that he knew her.”copyright protection4PENANAUmFzE1HHCO

            “So you’re sticking by that this was a random attack. No motive? No plan? You don’t know her, or why she would do this?”copyright protection4PENANAsj2l0tJr17

            “Yes.”copyright protection4PENANADvd9KCQdFn

            The policeman closed his notebook. “Covering for your stepfather won’t help him now.”copyright protection4PENANA1AKG9pHQ6k

            “Excuse me?”copyright protection4PENANAFyEHUEaE5b

            “You have to realize how this looks.” The officer leaned forwards. “We have an alcoholic man stabbed by a naked woman.” The officer stared into my eyes. “I’m just going to say it. Did your stepfather invite that woman here…ahh…for favors?”copyright protection4PENANALJHYTrAJEg

            “Favors? She killed him! What kind of favor is that?” I demanded.copyright protection4PENANA7GRSm0h4Rn

            The officer pursed his lips. “People don’t just show up at the door and murder others. That woman was here for a reason, and she killed your stepfather for a reason. Help us find those reasons.”copyright protection4PENANAowW2dQHouM

            I began to cry again. “I can’t…I’m sorry I can’t do this right now. I can’t be near his body.” I ran outside, with tears still flowing from my face. I thought it over in my head. Could it be true, had he known her? I couldn’t see how. He didn’t have a job, my stepfather only left the house to buy alcohol and microwavable taquitos. Where would he be meeting people long enough to invite them over? I thought back to how the woman had acted. She was clearly crazed, maybe even delusional. She kept raving about love and she kept saying we. Maybe she had multiple personalities. She could have escaped from a hospital and was off of her medicine. No I refuse to believe he knew her or that she was invited her. This woman, this monster barged into my life and took away my family without a reason, without a second thought. She stole something from me that I had been waiting to get rid of, but because she took it…I wanted it back. In all my dreams about leaving, none of them involved my stepfather killed. I…I wanted someone to miss me. I wanted a family to worry about me. I wanted someone to call the police and scream and shout when I left. I didn’t want to leave an empty house. I didn’t want my family taken away, I wanted to take myself away. But now my family was gone. Now I was alone, and that hurt…because it wasn’t my choice. I was an orphan now. I had been for a long time technically, but I had been able to pretend I still had a family. If even by the loosest definition, my stepfather did fit that definition. He was a drunk, he was abusive, he was a leech, but he was family. But she took him away.copyright protection4PENANAAfwhepJP8n

            “Oink.” Vestido was rubbing against my leg. I picked up my pig and holding him tight I watched the ambulance drive away with the murderer of my last shred of family.copyright protection4PENANA6g3X8qXpuP

            “I hate you.” I muttered. I didn’t want her to hear, I didn’t want the police to hear. I needed to hear it. I needed whatever angels sat on my shoulder, whatever gods may be to hear. I wanted the devil to hear it. I wanted the dead souls to hear it. “I hate you.” I said it again. I had been dealt a shit hand in life thus far. I had put up with a lot of things. I had given up on my future. I had given up my dreams. But I had never given up on my family. I never got the chance to leave. I put up with him for most of my life. But she killed it, the one thing I had refused to abandon. No matter how bad it became. She murdered my pitiful excuse for a family.copyright protection4PENANAMTlIWzzEX3

            I had said that I would leave in two months. I had decided I would start living for myself in two months. Well I would hold onto that promise. For two more months I would hold onto my family. For two more months I wouldn’t live for myself. For two months, I’m going to try and kill that woman. And then, either after she joins my stepfather in Hell or two months have pasted. I will leave as I’d always dreamed. But for two months… “Beware me.”copyright protection4PENANArxjXPynynv

            “Tsssk….tsssk…tssk.” This looks pretty swollen. A paramedic was examining me. “You should go to the hospital. You might be concussed…in addition to your being in shock.” I was whisked away towards the hospital in the back of a police car.copyright protection4PENANAWuM0rUqpjV

            I only had eyes for the car in front of us. I couldn’t stop staring at it. It was an ambulance, and inside was the woman. I clenched my jaw tight and held Vestido close to my body. “Beware me.”copyright protection4PENANAe6PzOM9nq7
