Continued from 'Safe' "What happened?" The woman asks as Arabella carries me into the house. With no furniture, she sets me on the metal floor in the kitchen and crouches next to me, squeezing my hand gently. I tug my knees to my chest. The tears no longer flow and I breathe normally, but fear… Continue reading Apologies all Around
Continued from 'Fetching Water' Arabella hands me the full bucket, taking the empty ones from my hand to offer Cly. Once more he releases it into the well. "Come on, Arabella!"
