Walking the snow-covered streets of Minnesota Isabel could feel the winds chill, slowly biting its way through her thick gray coat. Her eyes, still blurry from the tears that had been escaping just a few minutes ago, tried their best to see through the winter mix - snow dancing across her vision. All her life he was all she knew... now he was gone. How was a girl supposed to live without her father? How did people get through the holidays without someone by their side? Biting into the soft skin at her bottom lip she huffed out a breath of exhaustion. John wouldn't have wanted her crying like this. "I'll always be with you" he had said. "No matter what happens." Even as a child Isa hadn't necessarily believed him. It was just hard to take in the fact that this day had actually come. Distracted by her grief Isabel hadn't heard the sound of squealing tires across a slick icy pavement. She hadn't heard the sound of a car stopping... nor did she realize she was hit. That is, until it was too late. Lying on the frozen earth she was in shock, her ribs in pain, yet it wasn't enough to bring her back to consciousness. It just wasn't enough. OOC: sorry, I was listening to a sad song. I guess it came out in my writing. Hopefully this will give someone something to work with. :) My greatest apologies if it's choppy.
