Six Sentence Sunday

Last week was a hit with Kate's honest expression of her feelings, but this week I wanted to share something with you all that shows a different side of her story. Pain.

I don't usually set-up my six, but this needs it. Kate has been told people recreate painful scenes from their lives on the walls . . . Enjoy.

~I walk over to the walls—running my hands across them as I did inside—inspecting some of the distressed art. One in particular stands out more than the others. A woman is impaled in her chest by a stake driven into the ground, a child with a sword in his hand curled at her feet. A dead monster lies next to them both. My hands shake. The person who experienced his mother’s tragic death in such a dreadful way is the one who must have drawn this.~

    The sadness that she felt was so strong, but also very real. I really enjoyed your creative description of her experience at the wall. This six left me with chills. :)
