She wasn’t sure how long she hobbled before she couldn’t walk anymore, her legs refused to hold up the rest of her. The pain was radiating through her whole body now and getting stronger. She refused to give up and sit there pathetically waiting to be found by the wrong person. So, she started to crawl, digging her hands into the soft wet dirt of the forest floor and pulling herself along.
She had never felt so small and weak; her vision became obscured by the tears streaming down her face. Was she dying? No, she was not going to wilt away like a flower naked in the middle of the woods. She continued to push herself, her breathing grew heavy, and her skin had a fine layer of sweat mixed with the dirt smeared on her body and caked beneath her nails.
With no choice but to stop, to try and get her breathing under control, she sat on her knees with her forehead to the ground, like a curled up armadillo.
She learned in that moment––death is an unfair opponent. It has zero tact and little consideration of timing. In short, death is a fucking asshole.
