Prisoner #C44031


“The first time was a complete surprise to me, love is like that. I was twelve years old when it happened. Just a girl. It was a Sunday and I was so bored, Father was in his workshop, Mother was asleep on the couch and I was snooping through my father’s closet. He was a soldier and always had the most interesting stuff like dirty magazines and Polaroids of dead foreigners. The switchblade knife was in a box that held some ribbons and a distinguished service medal. I liked the way the handle felt in my hand, it felt right. It fit. I jumped and laughed a little when my finger found the magic button and the blade popped out with a little ‘click’ noise. I had to have it for my own.” – Prisoner #C44031
