A sad story about a lonely girl.

Claudia was sitting in the kitchen, the dim lamplight shun upon her face. She was sitting in the old armchair, looking out of the window and into the deep, dark woods outside. The pink walls of the room reflected their pink tint on the glass windows. It was cold, unusually cold for spring, but it was always like that in the country. Claudia didn;t mind the cold, she didn't even notice it, she was lost in her own thoughts. Claudia stared into the night sky, images of far away land flashed in front of her eyes. She wanted to travel, see the world, meet the people! Rather she was stuck here, at her family's farm house. Claudia was seventeen, the only child her parents had. "They learned their lesson." She thought. The twinkling stars reflected in her eyes the flame of desire for adventure that burned inside her. She would give anything just to go away from here...anywhere...

Claudia's lonely thought were broken by the voice of her father: "Sweetie, can you go to the yard and turn off the water?" The deep voice of her father straddled her. Claudia sighed, as the stars in her yes slowly faded away. She stood up from the armchair, and faced the old grandfather clock. It was already nine, she has been lost in her thought for almost two hours now, but with her daydreaming she would often loose the grasp on time. Claudia took a hairband from the table and tied her blond curly hair into a tail. She but on her boots, and walked out into the front yard. The yard in front of their house was the only clear place in the middle of the woods. She walked up to the old rusty valved and turned it. It let out a horrible screech, and broke, spilling ice cold water all over Claudia. After a few moments the water stopped, "Thank you sweetie!" Her father shouted from inside the house. As he turned around, her eyes begun to tear up. After taking a few steps towards her home, she broke down. Claudia fell to her knees and started to cry. The loneliness had gotten to her. She never had a lot friends, but since Amy, the only "good" friend she had died last year, she was lonely.  The tears fell from her face and on the ground. The stars in her eyes are almost dead now, and the light from the sky grew dim. She would never see the world, never, walk out of the deep dark woods.
