Sunset

After five flights of stairs, she got to the terrace. The sunset was beautiful but before she could enjoy the view, she looked around to make sure she was alone. Then the tears came streaming down her face and she gave in. Five minutes later, she heard footsteps and put her mask back on. A small girl came running up with her mother running after her. ‘Stop running, you’ll fall!’, the mother yelled. She smiled at the kid and continued walking.

The mother smiled at her as she chased her daughter around; her daughter sure did keep her fit. ‘What’s your name?’, the mother asked. ‘I’m the girl in the black dress ‘, she said. ‘That’s a pretty mask you have on, I’d like you to see mine some day’, the mother said.
