By embracing the shadows of her past she pushed through the locked gates and trod down the ghostly memories so they were like ash unto her mind.

Feeling the vibrations of her thoughts coursing through her body, her chest filled with seeping emotions. Without contest, she drew her breath, embraced the familiar energy and allowed herself to revel in its miracle. She contemplated. Where within her soul did this energy arise from?
