Some unknown emotion tugged at my heart and my mind, and without understanding the reason why I turned around and looked back towards the dark forest behind me.
Furthest away, in the outskirt of the big cluster of trees, I saw you. I could only see your contour but I knew that it was you.
“What are you doing here?”
I whispered the question, barely loud enough for my own ears to hear it. But I couldn’t raise my voice, I couldn’t muster it. I was so tired.
My legs gave in underneath me and suddenly I was on my knees in the icy grass. It cut into my calves and hands, but I had no energy to flee the unpleasant pain.
A strained breath was all I could muster and I looked down into the now blackened grass in confusion.
