Today, I woke up to screams and yelling outside in the back parking lot, there are some other apartment buildings down there... I didn't know what is that had awaken me, until a clear phrase, out of the top of someones lungs, came loud and clear "You'll see, I'll get a restrain order" followed by some slaping... I imagined someone hitting the one that had yelled.
I got out of bed and peer through the window... I saw a man going away, tall and wearing a white hodie... I saw someone, smaller, couldn't tell if man or woman, closer, runing through the little forest we have in the back, and then stopping, rubbing his/her arms as if hugging themself... he/she didn't have a jacket... and it's cold in the mornings.
Then he/she, started to run towards the road and out of my sight...
What can make a person capable of hitting another one and thinking that is right??
Having worked with the Rescue for women of domestic violence, I haven't been able to stop thinking about it the whole day... I was also sad and scared. I wish no one would have to suffer that. EVER.
see you soon,
