The Winterdowns

A young girl lives on the streets. Not a penny to her name.

Winter is the hardest time for the homeless. Especially when it snows...

1. It was a cold winters day

I stood under the tree, gazing over the rail and at the snow covered city.

My breath fogged up with each exhale. My lungs froze up a little with each inhale.

I rubbed my arms, attempting to gather some small piece of warmth, but I soon realized it was futile effort after a while and stopped.

---  

The sun was beginning to sink into the horizon, the snow on the many roofs glinting and shining like gold.  

What little warmth there was vanished with the light.

I faced down the deserted street and began a slow trudge through the snow.

Where I was headed, not even I could tell.

I had no home. No family, nor friends.

Just the clothes on my back and the shoes on my feet.   Shoes, I might add, that were slowly soaking through with melted ice, and a little slush slipped in through the top with each step.

Squelch, Squelch...

Most unpleasant, but there wasn't anything to be done about it.

I continued on my way.

Where I would end up was anyone's guess.

Come to me.
