"Shut up!"The darkness chased her further into herself, into the corner of the room where the blinds couldn’t leak any light. A happy song attempted to break the walls of her storm but she tore the headphones away so abruptly that it stung. Rocking softly and staring at the floor, a thousand thoughts, a thousand nothings all ruined her escape. She thrashed her arms, she moaned and flung her phone to the other side of the room.
"Don’t worry about them."
"I need a break from everyone.""I can’t wait for you to leave."
"They’re just jealous of you.""Fuck it!"
"She doesn't listen to me."
More than anything in the world, she wished she could scream until there was nothing left.
