Untouchable...

Unloved...

Unwanted...

Ugly.

By societies standards, Elizabeth Steele is a low life with no worth. She has no home, no money, no life.

No value.

Moving from alley to alley every night, scavenging through the streets, she keeps her own and stays away from anyone in anyway that she can, using her mask of imperfections to ward off any unwanted attention.

Simplicity is her armor and un attachment  is her sword.

But how long can someone go before being an outcast is too much? How long can one human go being known for their biggest flaws, their deepest secrets and their greatest weaknesses, before everything they've built up around themselves comes crashing down? 

Glass is only so fragile as that of the thing it is supporting, and when your heart is so delicate that all that is left to protect you is a clear and thin sheet of glass, there is no telling when or how quickly it will break.
