The Daily Prompt: Visions

Smart, beautiful, and ready for whatever the world may throw her way

Fearing nothing she packed her bag and headed to the big city

She was going to make it.

Like a divine light Summer Sun shined down upon her, bathing her in hope and possibility. Everything she touched turned to gold.

Soon the Divine Summer Sun faded, though.

Winter brought with it dark, cold, raw days that rolled into the same dark, raw, and even colder nights. Long gone was her Midas Touch.

The city that had been so alive just a few short months prior was now cold and mean, sparing nobody.

Sitting alongside a sidewalk she found herself alone, hungry, and cold wondering if the warmth of the Sun would ever again shine down upon her.
