It was always inside her, an empty space that ached in the daytime and turned into a sharp pain at night.
No one answered or turned to her, even though there were people everywhere.

The lie freed her.
It helped, having all those friends.
One rare days she stil felt…not quite lonely…but something. Adrift, maybe. As if all the people she hung out with were place-holders.
Pretending; she did a lot of that lately.
