Her nails dig into the ground, and she tries to push herself up. Her arms contract, shake and then they give up under her. Her face hits the concrete again, her eyes flutter closed. She's exhausted. Her body goes limp.
This is a story of survival, of the urge to continue when everything seems dark, out of reach. Alex will not be the only one who suffers, but she will have the people who love her fight for her. And most of all, she has herself.
