PROMPT WORD: RESERVE
I watch her taking long walks all alone.
She looks like a very reserved person in self-imposed exile.
I once tried to be friendly with her, but she declined and said, ‘she is cursed, and anyone she loves or became friendly will die.
She recalls that the first time she cried was when her husband died, then one by one, as if in procession, all her dear and near ones died.
Now she prefers to live alone lest she causes harm to anyone.
She has found solace in solitude.
