Intruder - Alejandro Bentivoglio

I woke up in an unknown room. I say hello to my wife who shouts at me at the very moment she sees me. I prepare my breakfast, she calls the police. Soon the block is surrounded. I dress myself in clothes that don't look on me. When I go out I see patrols and dozens of policemen. They aim their guns at me. I tell them to be quiet. Nothing to worry about. It's not me, that's all.

Original Title: El intruso
Translator: Karina Alonso Dominguez

From the book "Dakota/Memorias de una Muñeca Inflable"
