I opened the door and quietly sneaked in.

“What are you doing here? You are not supposed to be here you know,” She exclaimed.

“I just thought I would surprise you.” I said calmly. The shroud of the night was covering our faces. I sat next to her as we started talking to each other. We talked, talked for hours and started digging up the graveyards of our pasts. As we talked, I got teary but she was rock solid. ” How are you so calm with what you have gone through?” I asked surprised,

” My heart is now a fortress and no one is allowed in”, She said. As the night passed on, We got more and more open with each other, she talked about how many times she had dared to love and how many times she was broken into pieces by men who used her or betrayed her. As we talked further on, The fortress which seemed unconquerable before was now in sight. The power of words is truly immeasurable. As the night came to an end. I opened the door and quietly sneaked in.
