Senses: Shower

29 Sep

Steam billows out as she opens the glass door. She recoils slightly from the too-hot water and moves to the back of the shower where the spray is the least potent. The door scrapes along its track as she seals herself inside. She steps slowly into the water, running her hands along the cool tile. Once she is completely immersed, she closes her eyes and tilts her head back. She inhales.

There is nothing but the water washing over her body. There is nothing but the sound of it hissing all around her. With each breath she slips further into peace.
