She lay there in silence. As still as the night. Time began to tock as she ticked the box to seal her fate. She once had such dreams, ambitions. She was so full of life. So out there and open, so friendly and caring,  she would help anyone she could. Until that night. When the envelope was sealed and all she could do was stare. Through the cracks which appeared all over her body. Looking out at the world. But the light she once knew, didn’t flicker through anymore.  It had faded. She was left with darkness.
