River

Unfortunate entrance; scared them, scared herself.

Metal walls shook, echoed screams; crawling into an unfamiliar world of staring eyes and angry souls.

Too many words and thoughts and all at once, always all at once, and even genius cannot calculate the mass.

Later is better, when warriors fight, doctor works, engine hums and they fly on golden wings, out in the velvet black.

Darkness never goes away, never really goes anywhere, and blue always haunts her, but the sun does shine, and she walks and talks...

She functions as a girl, and this is her new home - her Serenity.
