Her hair fell around her petite shoulders as a black satin curtain, her face like a porcelain doll against the ebony surrounding it. The small, black dress covering her totally, except forearms, upper chest and her heeled shoes.
“F-for what?” My voice shook as I took a step back, running into the red brick wall that made up the station. They were slowly beginning to crack and crumble around me, like my thin strand of sanity. She took a step, forcing me closer to the wall.
The silence was deafening. The large, empty spaces pressing closer. The rough surface of the brick scratched my once soft hands. The back of my dress ripping when I try to move to the side. I gasp as her sudden movement to pin me against the wall, a sinister smile playing on her lips.
