“Please, take the pain away,”she whispered. Shutting her eyes slowly, with a thumping heart, as she embraced the darkness. She listened at her breath, like two papers bags, filling and emptying, the essence of her life.
Laying on her back, a pink duvet, white pillow, neatly laid over her metallic double bed, with a beautiful design of curved metal, into flowers, that always blossomed in the mornings.

In her right hand, she held a tiny container, with her arm hanging off the bed. She held on dearly, but felt her grip loosen, as a dizziness clouded her head.
Pop! Pop! The little sound that came from the plastic container, as it bounced once and twice on the tiled floor, rolling under her bed.
