Every night I lie to my daughter

by lukkynumber

Every night, I lie to my daughter.

It was bound to come out eventually, I suppose, but this is much more painful than I ever imagined. I thought she would understand, but that was... silly of me.

The late night comings & goings. The numerous "landscaping" projects in the backyard, with aromatic perennials covering fresh mounds of earth. The bloodstained tools in my shed.

Nothing stays hidden forever.

I recall forced conversations between father & daughter, interrogations they felt like, soaked in fear & diversion.

Why couldn't she just let me be?

Every night, I lie to my daughter.

Tonight is no exception.

She finds me in the basement, and I lie again.

"Honey I don't know anything, I PROMISE I don't think you could ever hurt a fly! Just let me out of here, please..."
