My attempt to fill Katie’s shoes while she’s on hiatus from blogging

Brittany woke to the sharp odor of damp soil and something else, something familiar, something sweet. She tried to stretch out her legs. Her feet touched a solid barrier before her legs were fully straight. She was lying on her right side, in a fetal position. She tried to lift up but, again, she met with a barrier. She opened her eyes wide but it was dark all around her. Her throat tightened and she felt a rising hot bubble of panic coming up from her stomach. She was in a box of some kind. Soil beneath her, wood on the sides and above her. She stretched out her hands and felt around the small, close space. The smell of the soil and the “something else” was adding to her panic. She clenched her jaw to try and keep the acrid fluid down in her stomach. She wanted to cry out, but was stilled by the thought that he might be there. He might be outside the box, waiting for her to cry out, waiting for her to give him another reason to beat her.
D: Oh, lovely. A goes off with barely a goodbye and now I’m stuck with … well, all these “friends” of hers, mucking around her blog, smelling it up with things familiar and sweet. I need a drink, a pint of mead … where did she put the mead?!
