But she hated it!

God! She did not look like that! She could not!

The bust showed an old lady. But she was young, was she not? How could the artist do this to her?

And then it hit her!

It was given to her and now it was taken away.

It was never hers to claim.

But my heart is still young! That shall remain like that, she vowed.
