Sophia

    Most of the time I’d sit and stare. That’s how it started I think. Her eyes were the open doorway between this place and the next, not that I knew that back then. Though, somewhere in the back of my consciousness I knew that if I spent too long in that place I’d […]

He let out a long regretful sigh whilst stealing a cautious look both […]
