For all the Right ReasonsThe winds breathed a change.She sat on the curb, cigarette resting in her fingers. The smoke twirled in pale grey ribbons around her hair but she didn't notice. There were too many other things on her mind. His smile, his laugh, his gentle touch, his disarray of hair, hazel eyes. His feelings for her.She was taken. The sick twisted part? So was he. But life rarely holds sympathy in situtations that are to be engraved forever in their path. This wasn't normal.
