The thunder roared and her metal windows gave a loud clanging sound which caused her to curl up closer to the wall. It was her first night away from home and the storms were raging. Nevertheless, the storms in her heart raged fiercer than the northern wind elements.
While nuzzling her head into her soft pillow, she picked up a wimp of his scent- caffeine and wood. Caffeine because he loved coffee and wood because his cologne had a strong woody scent. She turned to the other side of the bed. It was cold and deserted. Just like her life.
A sweeping whirlwind cut through her tangled thoughts sending her heart throbbing at unhealthy rates. She was scared. It was dark and she was alone.
