Just a short piece, interpret it however you wish
The grass was damp and her clothes stained by the dewdrops that had attached themselves to the fabric as she lay on the ground. Looking up at the nearly empty sky, a heavy sigh unknowingly left her lips. There was no one around to hear it. In fact, not even she herself took notice of it. As if she were floating around in outer space, there was not a single sound around her. How long she had been here for, she did not know. Nor did she care.

However, when she looked upon her hand, she noticed that her own body was becoming translucent, the pain she had previously felt disappearing alongside the rest of her.
