about this story

The last time I saw her was on a windswept beach, and I smelled the scent of her vanishing perfume and the 21 degree Celsius Wind. I wondered if it would be the last time I saw her, for it seemed as if her shadow would soon disappear.
I don’t know what time it is, the two fastest things in the universe, light, and sound, are hiding in black clouds as fast as they can.
Perhaps because there is no light for the reason of it, or because she has gone so far, I can not see her back.
It was dark, but I still wanted to walk. On the way back, I saw the church we used to go to when we were kids.
Google Maps told me it was a 10-minutes walk home from where I last saw her, but my pace was so heavy that it took me three years to get to the yard.
I’m too tired. Maybe I should sit in the yard and rest for a while. A cup of tea is good for me.
I looked up at the wall, and there she was with me as a child, and there was graffiti, and we’d drawn these crooked lines. The color of the lines is fading.
