100 Words a Day 591

“Everybody wants the events in the life to have meaning, fit neatly into some story. That’s why you are here; you want to figure out what drove me to do what I did.”

“I’m just here so you can tell your side of the story.”

“My side of the story? Will that change things?”

“I suppose not. But just like everyone wants to have life be a story, don’t we all want to be the one to tell it?”

“Not me.”

“Why not?”

“I’d rather be silent and leave you tormented by the why than indulge in some egotistical narrative.”
