Candle (100 Words)

Yailn watched the candle flicker on the end of the bath, letting her thoughts wander. 

The week had been hard. Watching the world turn to dust outside as she just did boring mundane work. Sometimes she wished there was a higher calling she could answer to, a nobler cause.

But there wasn’t, not for her.

She’d done what she’d could. She’d donated to the people who could change the world. She’d vocalised her support – 

And now, she needed to save herself.

Which meant sitting in a bath, watching the candle slowly burn, whilst trying to find her place in the world.
