Celeste sauntered on over to the steps of the old, brick building. She absentmindedly touched the pink ribbon in her hair before spotting her good friend, Meghan, already sitting on the steps of the building. They had agreed to meet a little early so they wouldn’t have to enter the building alone later. Celeste sprinted […]
She longed for land. She wanted to feel the ground, cool and sturdy, underneath her sand colored feet and take deep gulps of air. She wanted to love the seagull symphonies and listen to the mighty lion’s roar. She wanted to watch the flowers open their jewel-toned petals with a flourish and see the stars […]
