When the moon shines…

She stood in the dark room, looking out at the night.

Her hand reached back to shake the ribbon from her hair. The darkness outside seemed bright to what she felt within. The moon shone its soft silver light. She smiled, the moon had seen worse, and it could still shine.

That gave her courage. She would shine on.
