The embodiment of her purity and joy was littering the ground. She was now nothing more than damaged goods.
Her bony fingers trembled as she picked up a yellowed piece that held parched letters, "HO". She recognized it was the beginning to the word of the sentence that represented the ownership of her destroyed home.
Sienna lifted her muddled green eyes towards the dirtied window of her former bedroom. Her mind travelled back to innocent times when her being was safeguarded by parents, siblings and friends.
All gone now. Either by natural deaths or having their untimely death scrutinized before a legal court.
Only Sienna remained as the same sixteen-year old self, twenty years on. Cursed with both obscurity and immortality.
Neither known nor unknown. Having to live the life of a wandering shadow because of the wrong person she had loved. A person whose parents cursed her name with ancient rites that held real magic as powerful as in the age before humanity knew technology.
