A few tears dropped on her cheeks, slowly making their way to her neck. What she was hearing was not pleasing to her soul. It made her feel suffocated. But she did not want this to reflect on her voice, so she fought the tears back.
When the conversation ended, she sat down on her chair and looked at the wall. She was not seeing anything. She was not thinking anything. She was in pure emptiness, as if life was outside of her and she did not exist.
Then, it started coming back to her. Tears rushed to her eyes and then to her cheek. She still fought the tears by wiping them away. Yet this time, they were powerful. She grabbed her face in her hands and started crying loudly. Then she grabbed her head in her hands and cried even louder.
No one heard her.
Tears got weaker. She was now just making quick short sounds that indicated the end of this cry. So, she started to watch the wall again. With a similar emptiness in her eyes and mind. Tears were not coming out anymore. She was where she started.
Four words came out of her mouth as she got up from the chair.
‘Everything will be ok.’
Because they always were.
