She smiled and said nothing as she let him follow her, her sandals making a ripping sound over the dirt path. He felt lost, but some invisible wire was mangled around his innards and he followed.

There was a drizzle in the field as he pressed against her. There was a crack and he was unsure if it was her or the sky.
