What Goes Around
Smoke lingered in the air, the embers still warm. Gwen wrapped her cloak tighter in the chill, furtively gathering her tools as she made to leave. Stubborn tears clung to her lashes, but emotions now were of no use to anyone.
Glancing back to the clearing, she knew she’d done what she must. Art’s body was now ash and Lance awaited at the station with their tickets to freedom. She yearned for him, their love a beacon of hope in a twisted world.
Fingers of dread slowly released, her heart soaring, each footstep taking her toward a future filled with hope.
