Waking up in a new city… there was nothing quite like it.
As she poured her cereal, she smiled as she saw her brother emerge from the bathroom. She had missed having someone to relate to, someone familiar. Not that New York wasn’t spectacular, but it could be lonely.
Millions of people cramped into one small space, no one really alone but everyone isolated. Who’d have thought tight spaces meant loneliness?
She wasn’t lonely anymore. Now she could go about her life in relative peace, at least. She wondered if everyone in New York had someone like that.
Maybe she wasn’t the only lonely one.
