Part two of a short story trilogy by Chiara Barzini
The girl was blonde and did a lot of yoga. The men on the island called her Bambi because of how innocent she seemed with those wide, blue eyes. She declared everything she did boldly, including the fact that she was having a threesome with her father and cousin. Bambi, the men on the island warned her, what they’re doing to you is sick! She rolled onto the sandy beaches and replied that nobody knew her body better than her own family. She stepped into the shower, the two men, father and cousin, rich and electric, closed in on her like end pieces of a sandwich. She was naked, the meat in between.
