When Madness Grows Wings

When Madness Grows Wings

A Story by Kaliope

The woman waited several hours as a sick pining grew worse. After retiring to the bed, the doorknob rotated. He returned home and lay in bed, with wet hair from washing off the stink. Feeling nauseous, the lady rolled away and was unable to sleep. She felt responsible for neglecting him.

An hour later, the woman sat by a century-old window, taking in small doses of crisp air. Lazy crystals drift and exist, if only for a moment on the way down. An outside breeze mixes with the stuffy apartment; marrying the two temperatures. Pots and pans clang together as the radiator accumulates too much trapped air. The stillness calms her as she teaches herself to fly from the open frame.

Isn't she sweet, though? My Girlie writes beautiful stuff! :3
I really enjoyed the description of the setting. You chose very good words to give the setting life.

thank you(:
I think I'm confused. I don't know if it's just me, or that the first section could use some additional clarity.
