Idon’t know where I am. I don’t know why I’m here. And as I study the woman who stands two feet away from me, staring, I realize I don’t know her either.
Not even a little bit.
Sure, she is my grandfather’s chief of staff. She says she was my mother’s friend. I’ve seen her every day for weeks now, but she is a stranger. For a second, I have to wonder if this might all be a nightmare. But not a nightmare, really. A hallucination. A fantasy. An . . . episode. That’s what the doctors call it when my mind drifts to places that aren’t real and aren’t here and aren’t now.
I’ve been doing it for years, they tell me. Ever since my mom died.
Ever since I —
No. I don’t let myself think about what I did. There are some things that, once remembered, you can never quite forget.
“Grace, it’s okay,” Ms. Chancellor says. “ You’re safe here.”
I know she’s afraid I’m going to turn around and run down the tunnel from which we’ve just emerged. Or, worse, that I’m going to lash out — that I’m going to fight. With her. With the truth. With reality, because reality keeps trying to kill me, and one day it might just succeed.
“Grace?” Ms. Chancellor’s hand is on my arm, and only then do I realize I’ve started to shake. Then again, I’m always shaking.
Unlike Ms. Chancellor. I look at her hand — at how steady it is — and I think about how it held the gun. She didn’t waver. She didn’t tremble. She just took aim at the most powerful man in Adria and pulled the trigger.
That was a week ago. Now she’s looking at me as if nothing happened at all.
