Wounded Warrior Project – Ashley Gray
Prompt 1: 4 minutes- On the Train
The sun shines down on the speeding train as it follows the curves around the mountain.
Crystal blue eyes watch as the trees skip past her window. A pale hand wipes away the tears as the woman thinks about the life she’s left behind.
A new start is a head of her, and she has to be prepared. Only death is behind her. Not of her family or friends, but those she has killed.
A new place sits ahead of the train. New faces on strangers she couldn’t wait to sink her knife into. She wipes away more tears of joy as she turns her attention back to the cozy mystery she is reading.
The young woman glances up at the train crew member and smiles a dazzling, red-lipped grin.
