She pressed her hands against the window and looked out with consideration. Her heart longed for the outside world. She saw other children playing and laughing on the streets. Sharing secrets, going to school, and hanging out with friends, everything she couldn't do. A silent tear rolled down her cheek and fell onto the sill. A butterfly flew by her window. She had only seconds to marvel at its beauty before it flew out of the sight of her window. Children sometimes stopped to see the longing girl. They pointed, shouted, and motioned for her to come outside. Walls, locks, windows, and doors prevented her from doing so. Rain began to fall so she pressed her tongue against the glass and imagined it falling on her tongue. Imagine... That was all she could do. What about the snow that coated the window with frost? She could only stare at it and imagine the snow numbing her fingers. In the fall, she had to imagine the leaves crushing under her feet. In the spring, she thought of how a flower smelled and the bees buzzed. And in the summer, when the kids went to the local pool, she could only imagine what it was like to swim in something deep and cut through water. The outside... She could only imagine.
