The girl walked the dead city, her feet bloodied, bare. The skies, once bright and blue, were now gray and colorless. What were formerly tall skyscrapers and constructs to be looked upon with awe were now ruins, collapsed, and waiting to be forgotten.
She heard voices in her head. The told her to never stop walking.
To never stop breathing.
To never stop remembering.
To never stop keeping.
So many recollections flash through her with each new step, carving places of their own in her cluttered mind.
If the girl stopped walking, the memories would die.
So she tread forth.
