True Colors

A seven-year old girl looked at the sky above her. It was nothing but gray clouds and howling winds.

She dragged her piece of carton along the mean highways of the city, trying to find a place to sleep.

Moments later, she found an acacia tree and slept under it. When she closed her eyes, she saw hues of blue and red.

Then, she was transported to another realm. She was asked:

“Do you want to stay here forever?”

Seeing that the place looked colorful and fulfilling, she willingly said “Yes.”

Afterwards, her body became lifeless, its soul long gone.
