Red Light (Part II)

She sat crying at the red light.

Eyes unable to contain themselves. She was finally in a safe space to let it out. Release.

Slowly her eyes drifted up and through the wavering lenses of her tears, she made eye contact with a stranger in the neighboring car.

He was familiar with the look. Hurt. He attempted a consoling jesture but reached for a smile. 

She picked up all her strength and her strongest characteristic — and smiled back.
