She looked up.
Darkness surrounded her. She sat up in silence.
She remained observing, as cold breeze kissed her cheeks.
The white drapes swayed, revealing the midnight full moon.
Her room door stood ajar, so she had to squint to clear her vision.
A couple stood under the light. Talking of innocent things, unknowing.
She stepped down as light as air. her bed creaked, nevertheless.
Her long, loose hair flew about her shoulders.
And she didn’t push it off her face.
She emerged from the darkness.
“Boo!” Her parents startled.
