They were gone. They had just packed their bags and left her all alone. Just like her parents, who had perished in an accident. Now the only family she had left had abandoned her and went on a life- long vacation. Anger. Hurt. Pain. Sadness. But after a while, in the spring evening, a new feeling emerged and stayed, vibrant above all. Freedom. She felt free from all the people holding her back. She felt new in the upcoming season. Joy and hope engulfed her mind and body. She ran like she never had before, as the freedom and hope of her upcoming life framed her mind, she ran for home, all hers now. She could finally live in peace and solitude. But still, there was fear. Fear of the unknown that she could overcome with her new found freedom.
