atonement

 

“Oh, they are taking Karen. Who is next?”
“I don’t know. But, Julie and Joy were taken away a few minutes ago.”
“I saw one guy taking twelve at once…”
“Twelve!? I hope they don’t pick me. Who knows what’s out there. The old place was nice. They fed us, pampered us…”
“Yeah, now they put us all in a tight space, pick one by one and give away to strangers…”
“Shhh … here they come.”

“Would you like just one kind? Or, mix with some other color, sir?”
“Just red. Half-dozen red roses will please my wife on Mother’s day.”

    Wonderful snippet! I initially thought if it was something from Never Let Me Go.
