Lystra awoke to the sounds of death. Sitting up, she was surrounded by the other Deceived in the alcove as they stared at the Unable. In lines, some were shot; others were pushed through another door. Lystra didn’t watch, not at first, but held her hands to her ears, and counted the pairs of shoes she saw in front of her.

Dear Lord, find me the strength I need to get through this right now. I was walking blindly, my vision blurred with tears. Somewhere in-between the shock and the disbelief I had forgotten my phone inside, but truth be told I was glad I didn't have it with me.

In the mirror she focused on her face, it was definitely her face with it’s dimple on the cheek and the bags under her eyes.
