    Prompt: She Stood Out From the Crowd Because...

    She stood out from the crowd because she did not see a single face that wasn't frightening her. The only one without a mask. The only one not twirling and gliding to the music. She was the only face at the event that was wearing her own face. Exposed. She simply exited the crowd and headed for a wall that she could lean on and shrink down against it. But she still, despite this, would not hide her face. She knew despite how she felt about herself, she could never hide behind one of those lying masks. She was no liar. She may retreat from crowds, but not once, in her entire life, had she done so without displaying her true face. Always hiding in plain sight. And that has been what she always does. And would continue to do for what she imagined would be the rest of her life...
