from the same WIP
Molly buries the mouse hearts in the park and she feels herself sinking deeper and deeper into the ground with each heart she buries. She feels the blood on her fingers and the little tiny beating beneath her palms and she wants to stop for a moment just stop, but she has to keep going. Each heart feels like a memory a bad memory that she’s plunging in the soil and burying deep down inside. She feels the earth on her hands and it’s warm and sunbaked and feels good.
When she finishes with the last heart she stands up and feels dizzy and the whole world is spinning. She steadies herself and feels like throwing up and she thinks no no no not again please no never again.
