Temptation Thursday 4

It's Thursday, and that means it's time for another taste of my untitled WIP......

Victoria walked the cliffs, night after painstaking night. Her spirit hung in limbo; unable to cross over, but the reason for her being left behind was still a mystery after five long years. She’d often asked herself what unfinished business she could have had to complete, but nothing ever came to mind that made sense. Dying gave her an escape from her brother which was one thing she’d dreamed of having. But, she hadn’t wanted it bad enough to die for it.
She reached down to pick up a pebble, a trick she’d learned along the way, and tossed it into the choppy waters below. In the beginning learning new things in her spirit state gave her pleasure, but now she simply found it all annoying. Turning around, she paced along the edge of the cliff wondering if she’d ever find true peace. She stopped when she heard someone coming up the towpath through the brush.
