Who says a woman cannot be a hero on her own.
I wake up with a scream, soaked in sweat, and my side hurting.
Waking this way is a common occurrence for me and I settle down after gulping three or four breaths of air.
The subject of my nightmare happened over seventy summers ago, but every time I wake up with this nightmare it seems like it was just a moon or two ago. The wound in my side healed long ago, leaving only a scar, and any pain I currently feel is a fathom of what was, not what is. Even though it happened so long ago, the memory is still strong and haunting.
It had been a beautiful harvest season day and we were working in the garden. Mama and Papa was busy picking the last of the vegetables and I was digging for potatoes, pretending it was vermin that I was hunting and not boring tubers.
