PROMPT: 0-9

1
0 is the number of bags she takes.
1 is how many steps she takes to walk away.
2 is the number of parents yelling at her to come back.
3 is the amount of trains she has to catch before she reaches where she wants to go.
4 is the number of streets she has to cross.
5 is how many fingers she counts, anxiously, as she walks along an unfamiliar street.
6 is the number of times she walks up to the door and walks away again, sick to her stomach with nerves.
7 is the amount of times she knocks when she has finally gathered enough courage.
8 is how many eyes meet her own as the door opens.
9 is for the way her back curls over as she falls into the woman's waiting arms.
