Six-word Stories

Intoxicated with deteriorating sanity. Burnt-out cigarette.

Lina was taken from her home in Lithuania and thrown into a train car that ended up at a prison camp in Siberia. She was not told why, which led to a build up of the unknown. With so many unknown aspects as to why her life had changed over night, negative and manic thoughts slowly began to fill her mind (almost like alcohol intoxicates those who consume it).

After months of hard labor in the prison camp, her health was on the verge of being deadly and she slowly loses grip from all positivity (much like ashes slowly fall off of the end of a cigarette).

She was convinced that she would die at the prison camp because the labor was unbearable at times (much like anyone who lights a cigarette knows they will eventually burn it out).
