The sun was setting as she left the city. The wind blew in her face like it always did, and the scent of salt filled her senses. It was the first time in a very long time she felt truly alone with herself. There were so many times in the past when she could have gone back to the city, but something always prevented her.
She had been living on a farm outside the city ever since her father died, trying to escape her own memories, her regrets, her pain, but nothing seemed to work anymore. She had tried to be strong and keep going without them, but now that she'd made this journey she realized that it would not get any better if she didn't confront her fears head-on.
The wind blew through her hair as she walked down the road leading out of the city gates; and, to calm herself, she repeated a mantra in her head. It was a list of fifteen facts that went:
