Short Story: Clean Breakaway

Years ago, she ran away. Dropped everything, cut off everyone, packed one bag and vanished.

Starting a new life from scratch wasn’t easy, but it was better than staying stuck in her dead end old life. The her who remained would surely be on the streets or worse by now.

Despite everything, there had been bright spots in her old life. People of warmth and hope who had lifted her spirits, even if for a short while. It had been hard to let them go, but a lingering affection wasn’t enough for her to give up her current hard earned life.

Maybe in the future, when she was secure and strong enough to properly protect herself and reconnect with those precious souls who had kept her going.

She looked forward to that day.
