Warning you guys because I know who some of my watchers are, and this might be disturbing for them. The picture contains blood and a possibly disturbing concept. *points her finger* You know who you are, and I WARNED YOU, so don't complain!
~ Hands too small even to reach up past the hanging, crimson- stained legs did nothing to pull her mother down off of that terrible cross, depite her effort.
So there upon the blood soaked ground did she fall, clinging to what little part of the woman that she could. And there she lay until the flesh of her motherís feet became cold as ice, until the blood stopped falling to adorn her hair. There she cried herself into a restless, nightmare-filled sleep.
For no sirens filled the night air to come and rescue them. No one to take her motherís body down to rest. No one to put out the blaze that had now engulfed their home. No person at all to lay a hand on the weeping childís shoulder that she could feel some measure of comfort in the least.
The roar of the flames and the beating of her own heart were the only sounds that came to her ears that night. And that scream inside her mind that would combine with these horrors to fill her dreams from that day on.

Didn't mean for this to come out so complex. Started as a silly sketch I was gonna just color like normal, but soon changed my mind. So.. this is my first attempt at something more realistic than normal.
Tons of mistakes, I know. But I really dun care. I spent so much time on this I just got sick of it and was relieved when it was done. Quite proud of it though. *shrug*
