As she sat alone, the weight of boredom and dissatisfaction pressed heavily upon her. The endless cycle of eat, sleep and work held no satisfaction for her anymore. She knew deep inside that there had to be more to life than this mundane routine. The harsh reality of existence dawned on her like a heavy cloud hovering over what seemed like an unending desert. Her soul yearned for adventure, excitement and purpose-filled living- things that seem far-fetched from her current daily existence. It was as if she were suffocating under the monotony of life's banality, screaming within herself for release from this mundane existence. She realized that either she needed to bring change about herself or continue being a victim of such circumstance. For her, it was time for some dramatic changes in her life worthy enough to give that missing piece in her life a true meaning once again.
Katie's boyfriend's absence was a constant source of tension. He claimed he was working tirelessly to provide for their future, but she couldn't shake the feeling that his priorities were misplaced. Days turned into weeks, and weeks into months, with no end in sight. Katie found herself cooking dinners alone, scrolling through social media feeds for company. It seemed like every couple around her was taking trips or enjoying time together, while she sat at home waiting for scraps of affection from a man who was too busy chasing success to care about her emotional needs. The emptiness she felt only magnified by the memory of his booming voice promising a better life if only she could be patient. But how long could patience last when it only led to profound loneliness?
"You see Tommy was a drug dealer, so he was in that scene," whispered a husband's voice, as him and his wife walked past, Tommy hung his head down, dripping with hints of despair and regret. The sentence carried an undeniable weight, resonating with the bitter reality of the world where addiction and crime infest youth like a cancerous virus. It spoke to a life marked by unrelenting struggle and the desperation to survive at all costs, even if it meant dealing in destruction. Tommy's journey into the drug world was not born out of choice but rather shaped by bleak circumstances that gave him few options.

As the sun set behind the rundown apartment complex, Tommy made his way to the street corner, a bunch of baggies in his pocket filled with little rocks it's hard to believe something so small could be worth so much.

Her mind was consumed with worry as she thought about Tommy's dangerous lifestyle and their uncertain future together. She knew that selling drugs wasn't sustainable or safe, yet she felt helpless to do anything to change Tommy's ways.
