Karen woke up feeling exhausted. He haunted her dreams. She remembered his touch as if it was yesterday.
Her alarm clock played "Shattered" by Trading Yesterday, stopping after three attempts of shutting it off.
"I should call in sick today", Karen whispered to herself, staring at her ceiling.
Rolling over to look at her wall, a calendar with a drawing of a broken heart on the November 10th almost screamed "LOSER!" at her. "Two weeks...", she muttered to herself, remarking on the fact that it had been two weeks since her boyfriend had dumped her "to find himself". Two weeks since she lost herself.
Karen forced herself out of bed, her oversized "Animals Taste Good" shirt ending at mid-thigh, with a pair of blue shorts.
Trudging down the stairs, her Australian Kelpie barked happily at her, his tag wagging.
"Hey, Buster", she yawned.
He barked, and headed off to get his leash, which would be dragged back to Karen.
