Conservation In 2003, I realized…

Conservation In 2003, I realized that I cannot postpone the trip to my sister in Kherson region in , I to come to her wedding, but it turned out that the work is not allowed after a week she called and ordered to go to her I must Confess, the week after the wedding, and to go after was kind of ashamed But my sister has been steadily and relentlessly insisted on the mandatory arrival was at 6 o’clock the next morning I was sitting in the bus and twisted in the hand bought with the gift a gold ring After spending four hours on the bus, I was exhausted, on top of everything else because of the sun it felt like I’m in the bus, in the sauna But as I mentioned earlier, four hours later I still wait for the destination, Tsarskoye Selo special impression has not made Low houses, unpaved streets, turned into slush after the rain the earth the way I did not know, but, thank God, sister with her went for me On the way to their house we with the Ira restless talked for a while, leaving her unattended half an Later we were at their house, sitting for bursting with the food table Talking about everything, but mostly about the wedding — apologized probably a hundred times, then handed a ring that is very like the sister We never noticed as tea is already overturned by the collar one by one to a glass of wine starting to get dark under the table asleep four bottles of Serge, the of the sister, asked Ira to friends, they say, will still be a “third wheel” that, in turn, was strongly against — she’s probably, like me, wanted to continue the feast, she had not seen since leaving in the middle of nowhere (a year and a half exactly) after some time the outside came the sound of the motor, which eventually away and was not heard We sat around, then Irina decided to take me on a tour of the village, Already beginning to darken, and we, sluggish from the wine, went to surf Royal We were walking and I realized that there is not such atmosphere in the city I could not even imagine that in the village so quietly Reaching almost to the outskirts of the village slowly began to collect the brains in the bulb and that it’s dark, it’s time to go home on the soft pillow but then Irina has silently gasped — meet us who was Man of about thirty, maybe more the Fear quickly disappeared, as when he approached, we saw that his face kind and trustworthy He asked me what two girls do one, and even in the evening, and offered to take us home, We agreed some time Later — and we walked very slowly — he proposed to go to him, as he bought wine, and brew is, like, he and his wife, because they themselves are not local — he came to the country Under other circumstances I would have refused, but seeing that the sister is not exactly putting up a fight, I nodded in agreement the Man introduced himself: “Vladimir” the House of Vladimir was beautiful, though a little On the threshold stepped a young , not particularly pretty — she felt a kind of boredom, it was similar to these “eternal nerds,” She laid the table, and we soon again rattled the glasses, maintaining the convivial spirit of the Hour and a half, maybe two had passed I realized that will be enough to drink and sleep with these people wasn’t interested And then I started to notice that the behavior has changed Vova: good look was replaced by a hard gaze that does not Bode well — Why do you ladies drink? — his voice sounded like nails on glass, whether Or not you my modest celebration worthy of your people? What he had in mind, I did not understand, but it was clear that anger as an infection, coming to him out of the blue, though I was drunk but I clearly remember, on my lips a strange demoniac smile — but then this was not considered important — Girls, would you like to try my signature dish? — slyly he said, his eyes already Shine some strange joy, Even in the army I was taught how to preserve meat — even a year later his taste will be amazing You just have to try or I’ll be offended and you don’t want, so you can believe me, he added, We just remained nothing how to agree It is lightning darted into the kitchen and brought a jar of canned meat Volodya poked in the Bank, then poured the entire contents on a plate and happy eyes looked at us, I tried that first, Ira then here I confess — the meat was awesome, We quickly sentenced the meat I looked at the wife of Vladimir, thinking to ask for a recipe, but she was pale All further events were like a nightmare — That’s clever! Eat their own kind! — suddenly, smiling, declared Vladimir, and then turned his head to his wife and punched her in the face, breaking the eyebrow We were horrified, but the woman wiped the blood off and continued to sit — What are you, chicken, see? At me to you a special approach All you whores are the same, to cut you need! — blurted out Vladimir And it was then that I realized that we do not Shine with something good On it again felt a wave of fury at this time, Vova stared at the girl’s hair and forcefully threw her so that she flew out of the kitchen Vladimir got up, came to me Then, tilting his head so that his nose was inches from mine, and I could feel his breath, he said “Wait” again He hit his wife a foot somewhere in the kidneys, and then again in the stomach, then she picked it up and taken to another room, holding the back of his neck like cattle, I sat in a stupor, like my sister, who was shaking like an autumn leaf in the wind I decided that the time to hesitate is tantamount to a death sentence, Grabbing his sister’s hand, I rushed to the door of Our happiness, that they retired to the bedroom, Swiftly leaving the house, I heard the scraps of phrases: — Where’s… rope … to preserve them… don’t know how fast and what time we ran, but near my sister’s house I fell to my knees from fatigue, and tore them to blood Sister was silent I opened the door, and already on the verge of Ira fell to the floor unconscious, the Morning was gloomy, but not only because of the weather We both knew what last night, but stayed silent and tried not to meet glances her we, of course, said nothing, and the good we knew exactly what this Vova in the morning will evaporate like dew in the sun on the same day I left some time Later, I found out the photo in the news that Dylan, who was then in the village of Kakhovka maniac not only killed the women — he preserved their meat and, of course, “tasted” it, I don’t know how much time is spent in the bathroom, realizing what he us Sister after the incident persuaded her to relocate, and they moved to the city We after have not seen, only occasionally, she writes to me Note — not calling namely, I wrote a short answer That changed our lives, we have a wrong relationship But in the soul we just don’t want to remember that awful day, that demon in the flesh, and the divine taste of human meat, which we both will remember for a lifetime
