100 Word Wednesday: Escape

She ran her hand through the long grass, each blade thumping against her fingers, and she sighed deeply. It wasn’t meant to turn out like this. It was meant to be good. She closed her eyes and let the warm sun embrace her face. The calmness of the field enveloped her. If only she could make them see sense, make them see how everyone is suffering now but…

She sat cross-legged on the damp earth, the tall grass reaching above her head and she felt safe, if only for a moment, hidden from the world and protected by nature.
