Writing Challenge - Numb

"This world has gone to shit," Dante thought as he shuffled along with the crowds of people entering the train station to head into work. His thoughts turned to the state of the world but then he gave a start as he saw something strange out of the corner of his eye.

Dante turned and he saw a strange sight for the middle of November. There was a tall woman standing by the transit exit. Her skin was very dark making her eyes seem to glow in the semi-darkness of the underground train station. What was odd was her clothes, a simple dress of black that looked more like a nightgown, and that her dainty feet were bare. Her dark hair was cut very short and her ears seem to come to a point at the top.

She was looking intently at Dante and their eyes met. A shudder when through him as he felt something that could only be described as power. He found himself taking a step forward but just then his train to work had arrived.

Even though he knew she had some to this place for him, for perhaps some great purpose, for he knew in his heart that this woman was not human. Instead of rushing to her, he simply entered his train and headed to work. He was too numb to even care what she had wanted.


For the Indie Ink Writing Challenge this week, Jen O. challenged me with "Watch this video:
v=8MdBU1wgk6c&ob=av2e (It's Holly McNarland's Numb, if the link doesn't
work). Be inspired by the song. Inspiration can come from the lyrics as a
whole, a phrase, the sentiment, the video, or from the music itself." and I challenged Lance with "Snow and Ashes".
