Everything in her that lingers is shaped by the past. The skin that seals her flesh is of ill will; her hands so gentle that caress the face of innocents are tied with strings of her own fears; and her trembling feet which make her stand to fight are firmed by the rigid hammers of critics.
Just like how her hair danced with October wind, her mind is frigid and freely played. All naked eyes see her old and bold soul as a gauge of sinfu...
