True love, Bilston

You notice the girl at the chippy is different, stands somehow taller. The weekly swelling on her face is gone, the green of her gaze is electric. As the bruises on her arm fade she blossoms into defiance, ink and shovels scraps into your tray like a woman firing dirt into a fresh-dug grave.
