nothing better to do.
Many times I've felt her gaze on my back
as I walked away late in the evening - barefoot and dressed in nothing
but a light white dress, even in the coldest winter. And each time a part of her came with me although she was unaware of it.
Again I walked slowly towards the woods. The moon hidden behind thick clouds. The wind - cold and sharp like a silver blade. And again - a part of the woman from the second floor came with me.
She was old.
- It's time - I told her when I got to my sacred place. - You have to move on.
As I said this the woman appeared in front of me. A ghost.
- What is going on? How did I get here? - she asked, a bit hysterical.
- You are dead. It's your time. I will lead you to the next world.
Her eyes widened as she saw my wings spread from my back and shine in the dark of the forest like a wildfire. I took her hand and smiled. Humans will be humans. They would never believe that a crazy girl could fly.
