Slaying the Monsters
Sunshine flooded in the room and the dark corners revealed their secrets. There were no monsters hiding there. She had killed them all, she had survived. She had not crumbled. She hadn’t let her fears get the better of her.
She was strong! The realisation came flooding into her mind. She really was strong! The thought filled her with a calm and understated happiness. The monsters in the dark could not destroy her. She had fought them, slain them all and survived the night.
She got up and walked to the window. It was going to be a wonderful day. No, a wonderful week. No, it was going to be a wonderful life and she knew in her heart that it was true.
