    Powerful, emotive write. I can't shake the feeling of that first line, it seems to be embedded in my memory now. Almost seems like this girl had dreamed and longed for somewhere greater, somewhere far beyond Earth and its sorrows. There's such a chilling presence from "him" and a sadness, that now she can be free almost, free from him? Like she felt she had to die to rid her earthly body of him. I liked the idea of flowers growing in her belly, too. Something abstract yet incredible about that.

    I'm kind of left breathless at the end, because of the pain this girl was in, the way she chose to end her life, the way she wanted a home. Clarity. Heartbreaking that it had to end that way.

    Congratulations on the win, by the way. Keep writing and sharing with us.

      Wow, thank you so much. This comment means so much to me.
      "Like she had to die to rid her earthly body of him".
      Spot on. I didn't even have those words until you said them just now. But that is exactly what I meant.
      Thank you.
