Scratched Lines: Renewed
She woke up like every morning that greeted her the past few months: tired, filthy and uncaring. The orange glow that should bring warmth never penetrated the cold shell she had reerected since his passing. Mourning became rage became sadness, and finally numbness. She welcomed it, embraced it…
