Miss Parker remembers, most of all, that her mother said, “Don’t ever forget how much I love you” just before she stepped in that elevator.
She remembers it far more than the shots (count them: one, two, three) or even the light drifting through the new bullet hole (count them: one…)
Her mother committed suicide/was murdered/faked her death (delete as proven untrue) and it’s only natural to search for answers, or so ‘daddy’ says.
She searches, hunts (chases) the truth but all she does is find more questions. Sometimes she thinks that though people die from the truth every day she’ll be the first crushed (smothered, drowned; mix your own metaphor) under the weight of lies.
