Everybody knew Doreen was lonely but they didn’t dare say that to her face because they were all scared of her.
It wasn’t that Doreen was a scary lady, on the contrary, she was really quite beautiful but she never seemed to smile anymore.
After the tragic accident that claimed the lives of her parents, she hated almost everything that reminded her of that pain so she shut herself off from the world.
Everyone wondered if she would ever be happy again and she wondered also. All they had was hope in the unknown.
