The Handmaid’s Tale p. 12
Last week they shot a woman, right about here. She was a Martha. She was fumbling in her robe for her pass, and they thought she was hunting for a bomb. They thought she was a man in disguise. There have been such incidents.
Rita and Cora knew the woman. I heard them talking about it in the kitchen.
“Doing their job,” said Cora. “Keeping us safe.”
“Nothing safer than dead,” said Rita, angrily. “She was minding her own business. No call to shoot her.”
“It was an accident,” said Cora.
“No such thing,” said Rita. “Everything is meant.”
I could hear her thumping the pots around in the sink.
“Well, someone’ll think twice about blowing up this house, any ways,” said Cora.
”All the same,” said Rita. “She worked hard. That was a bad death.”
“I can think of worse,” said Cora. “At least it was quick.”
“You can say that again,” said Rita. “I’d choose to have some time, before, like. To set things right.”
