Every Rose Has its Thorns


1. When day turned into night

The blearing sirens penetrated the silence of darkness, on the cold November evening. The cold gusts of wind whistled as it flowed through the trees. Without the sounds of murmurs and cries, you'd think I was safe, that I was cared for and surrounded by people that loved me. But I am in fact alone now in this world.
