This week’s theme: Cracks
Crack. There went her patience. She balled her fist and took aim. The computer had had it this time.
The egg cracks. New life fights its way out, blinking in the harsh light of day. Hunger. Food. The warmth of a mother. All it needs.
How long before I crack? Before the aching inside becomes too much? How long before I close my eyes and know I can’t open them again?
I slip through the cracks, unnoticed. Fade into the shadows, become one with the darkness. I watch, I listen, I remember. Everything.
