Silence surrounded her. After all this time, the stillness felt newly strange...as if she were trapped inside of an expansive tunnel, no sunlight to be seen. She carefully tip-toed a few steps further, almost afraid to hear the faint clicking of her heels touching the pavement. Then it came--she felt herself catch her breath as a cold gust of wind rushed to her skin; she felt the breeze lift her dense hair, making it feel weightless, yet alive. She felt the warmth of the sun as it sparkled through her now-voluminous brown hair, turning it a deep bronze. She inhaled deeply, surging with the movement, and then exhaled even more deeply, completely enjoying the cleansing energy. She had been hoping for this change all along.
