Julia left the bar barely holding back tears. The night was dark and cold but she didn’t feel the chill. She couldn’t feel anything but the burning heat inside her chest. How dare he? How dare he to show up here now that she was finally getting better? The scales blanketed her eyes as she walked aimlessly around the streets, lost track of time.
Eventually Julia found herself in an unknown part of the city. Those huge heels she wore were not designed for distant walks and her feet got hurt. An unlit street was empty, a very few cars passed by. In any other occasion she’d probably admit that the area seemed creepy and probably unsafe to stay in after dark. But not tonight.
Julia leaned her back against the brick wall. A lone street light flickered above her head.
