264. Helen

Helen valued propriety. She was well-groomed, performed the necessary social graces, and never spoke ill of the dead. Helen tucked the dead into a dresser drawer - grandparents, parents, sisters became fading photographs and memories hidden under layers of intimates.


Maybe her pain was so intimate that the only place that could hold it was that drawer.
