The ceiling was almost as black as the night sky. It didn't matter where she stared at ─ it was empty. She laid still, her eyes open but shaking. Her cheeks felt some cold drops of tears, quickly drying up. For the first time, she felt horribly and completely isolated, lost like a tiny island in the great Pacific ocean. Its serenity was unsettling for her. The vastness of the Earth and sky swallowed her into an irrepressible woe. She would rather sink in to the bottom of the ocean floor and lie there ─ restless, helpless, lifeless.
Last night, she hit rock bottom.
