trying times

A young girl, at the age of 15, was murdered mercilessly.
A daughter of a head village, the young girl was very pretty.
Being beautiful made her snobbish. So much so that she was killed.
She was drowned.
She lay face-down in the water, gurgling and struggling, as her life dissolved into the water...
Disturbing, ain't it? As far as I'm told, it is a true story.

The past 2 days had been disturbing to the family. Really disturbing. And frightening. It resulted in all of us sleeping downstairs. Not that we had much sleep, though.

In the daylight, we feel much safer. Comes night, we could not even go to the bathroom alone. We were told to be strong and courageous. Remember that the Almighty will protect us.

We walked around confidently in our own house before. Now every step is taken cautiously.

How long will it take for things to get back to normal?
