The Stranger

The Stranger - Kyra Davis Sorpresivamente bueno. Muy bien escrito (y eso es mas sorpresivo, teniendo en cuenta el genero, donde no muchos se animan a ir mas allá de la escritura amateur)

"But you can get rid of the facade.”

"Don’t you get it?” I scream. Suddenly I’m not the Harvard-educated businesswoman, I’m not the fiancée of a young lawyer from an old family. I’m anger, desperation, frustration, unrequited passion. “I don’t want to get rid of it!” I grit my teeth against the violence that’s welling up inside. “You’re asking me to toss aside my thick-soled shoes and walk barefoot by your side, but look down, Robert! The ground we’re walking on is covered with rusty nails! I want my protections. They are part of me! I love them more than I love the . . . the savagery of my underlying nature and I want a man who loves the part of me that I celebrate! Why can’t you see that?”

“Because I’m a savage,” he says simply. But his eyes are sad; there is no savagery on display.

“Then find yourself a woman raised by wolves. I was raised to be civilized".
