Katherine walks out into the common room -- eyes wild, pupils inflamed with fire and anger -- seeing what others deny.
Her swollen breasts lay on her equally swollen belly. On her dark belly, an even darker line marks, "This is where life starts over."
Following a script no one else can read, she moves like a shadow across the room.
She walks around to my back. With a delicate finger she utters and burns a curse against my skin as horrible as death.
