Peek - Olathe

It was almost a relief when she fell.

When the world rushed past her with ease and she felt nothing but exhilaration and joy. 

For once, the feel of his hands were gone and, for once, her despair was washed from her skin, as if it'd been nothing but specks of dirt. 

She shut her eyes, but when she opened them, she sighed upon finding herself in her bedroom again, at her barred window. Her legs trembled and she dropped to the floor.

The very peek at her painless death was enough to make her crave it all the more.

The End
