It was a winter’s night. Ice cold.
I had alot going on in my head so I decided to take a stroll on the isolated street covered in snow that glowed with the lamps that were lit in the dark.
It was comforting yet so scary because of the loneliness consuming me.
I felt like I had no one to even turn to.
I walked down the street on to the next which eventually lead me back into the bright, noisy city. I hated the city.
I liked the busy streets and pretty lights but I hated it because of how crowded it was. How they didn’t care about stopping for a second and admiring everything. All they cared about was getting to places they didn’t even like.
I finally decided to go sit down at the park. It was the same park that I came to everytime I felt sad and it just brought his scary comforting feeling to it. It was overwhelming.
The park was covered in snow too but I could still see the mesmerising beauty it held within it.
I went to my usual place and sat down, arms around my knees and my head buried deep into them, my thoughts consuming me, bit by bit.
A few moments later, I heard footsteps in the snow. They were small and light but loud enough to freak someone out that’s all alone in the park on a late winter’s evening.
I look up to see a girl who was a little taller than I was, covered in a warm jacket and shawl with a book in her hand. She walked up to me and sat down near me and smiled at me with the warmest smile I’ve ever seen.
I look at her with my face soaked in tears and tried to put on a half broken smile.
” You look so cold”, she says and takes her shawl off and wraps it around me and then looks at me and smiles again.
” You didn’t have.. to d..do that..”, I say and I push my hair away from my face and stare at her, still holding on to her warm shawl. It smelled like the perfume I used to use back in school.
” Well, I did. You’re cold and in tears. What kind of a monster would walk past you?”, She says.
” Well, most normal human beings do. Why are you so nice to me?”
She looks at me with the warm smile again, her eyes gleaming with the lamp that was lit near us and said , ” you’ll see “.
