    Woman From Nowhere

    I was in one of the darkest periods of my life. I was scared, lost, and alone. I had recently been given a gift of a necklace with rose charms. It was a special gift from someone and wearing it made me feel a little safe and secure. I was walking down the street, kind of...

    I was studying in the Library one evening (it was more like dusk) when I noticed an old man watching me. As I got up to make a copy, he followed me into the copy room which was occupied by a Mexican woman and her child. After she left, he started talking to me. First he asked if...
