In the interest of tracking down good short fiction on the Internet, I’ve been tracking down good short fiction on the Internet.
The girl in the next room is sleeping. I make sure no one sees me come in. It looks just like my room, only she hasn’t been throwing up for three years so she takes up more of the bed. She’s in here for sexual abuse, but no one knows who did it. The girls have been speculating. Mandy, she’s the youngest on the ward, says it was the sleeping girl’s father. That’s the easiest guess, so most of us are holding out. On placing our bets, that is. Whenever anyone new comes in, we bet on who did what to them. No matter what it is that has happened, there is always someone to blame.
It’s a story about girls in a clinic for eating disorders, and the protagonist girl who rapes the new girl. It’s excellent.
