Knock. Just one solid sound.

Recai sat up too quickly and fell back against his mattress gasping as Rebekah stuck her head

into his small room, her face creased with worry and fear.

“Cover yourself and stay silent,” she whispered before closing the door and rushing back into

the living room to retrieve her burqa and open the door. Recai heard the movement of the heavy fabric

she wore on top of her house dress as she moved across the room to greet their visitor. He wondered if

she had retrieved her father’s gun which he’d overheard Hasad say was under the couch in the living

Before hiding beneath the thin sheet that covered him, he reached down and pulled the rug from

the floor and threw it across his legs. He covered his head and melted against the wall with the pillow

on top of his upper body. Feeling foolish, Recai laid there, wishing he had his ID, his phone, anything

to help bribe his way out of this situation if it was indeed the RTK at the door.

Perhaps it’s just a neighbor, he thought. A neighbor come to ask after Rebekah’s father’s health

or to borrow some salt. His attempt at rationalizing the unexpected visit did not quell his fears. The

RTK made a habit of performing home inspections, especially if they suspected a woman alone. It

wasn’t a safe time for anyone under the jurisdiction of Mayor Yilmaz.
