Prooi

By Luc Deflo

In Sint-Guido, de dichtsbijzijnde metrohalte, ligt het perron er verlaten bij. Als Inge overweegt om een taxi te nemen en rechtsomkeer wil maken, merkt ze tot haar verbazing dat ze niet alleen is. De jonge allochtoon, zelfverzekerd en conceited, staart haar aan alsof hij naar iets smerigs kijkt.
Blijven of weglopen? Kiezen. De essentie van het leven. Maar wat als er geen keuze is? Inge beseft dat ze als een rat in de val zit. Ze raakt in paniek. Waarom ik? Probeert zichzelf te sussen. Die jonge wacht gewoon op een vriend. Haar gemoed schiet vol en ze haast zich naar het eind van het perron. Ben ik een racist? De jonge allochtoon komt haar niet achterna. Inge haalt opgelucht adem. Als haar ogen langs de muur glijden, ziet ze een vuilniszak. Het ding hangt over een bewakingscamera. Is dat toeval? Of het start van een verschrikkelijke nachtmerrie waaruit Inge nooit meer zal ontwaken?
