Seven Broken Pieces
A Short Story
Young and resolute, still suffering from her sister's death in Vietnam,
Sasha Leroy Palmer decided in the 1960's to fight the enemy on the other
side of the Iron Curtain from within. Even if this meant becoming a spy.
She convinced herself that her sister's death was the only reason she came
here. To help her home country, the one that was truly free, to fight one
that wasn't (even if it proclaimed otherwise). It was the duty of every true
American citizen to resist Soviet propaganda and help weaken the force of
evil. Especially since the Cuban Missile Crisis.
So why then did every letter from home, secretly passed to her by
colleagues in the cause, make her feel that this hadn't been the reason?
That there was an even bigger one for her coming here.
Hadn't she made peace and accepted her father's decision? Was she really
running away from her responsibilities, as her parents insisted?
And if she was, what could make her stop running?
Surely not the man who caught her as she stumbled on a shaky trolley-bus
in the capital of Soviet Moldova. Or could he?
