She's Not There2
Chapter 2: Time Cannot Erase
Ethereal. Pale, pale skin against a backdrop of black. The lady in white.
He was freezing. He wondered if she was too. Because of how pale she was, he wondered if she was already frozen.
Gathering his green jacket around him, he tried to approach the girl walking quietly on the path walk. Street lights lit her up every now and again. The light was too stark from the fluorescent that her already pale skin seemed to become translucent and her short black hair looked almost like shadows in darkness.
She stopped at one of the lampposts, so crooked that it would probably topple on top of her if she wasn't too careful.
He tried to shout out but his voice didn't come out. So he tried to run to her instead. Something was slowing him down because he couldn't quite get near her. He was getting towards her too slowly and his eyes widened at the lamppost caving in. Even at his distance, he could already see hints of something vibrant on her paper white clothing. Red.
