Mulan Quote Challenge (started by @devilinthedetails) #5 The young girl huddled as far into the corner of the dark, confined, claustrophobic hole as she could; shrinking away from the unbearable darkness, from the void of nothingness that made this miniscule hiding place seem teeming with monsters and nightmares. Small sweaty hands were pressed tightly to her ringing ears, but her head still throbbed with gunshots and screams. Images of death burned the insides of her eyelids, leaving her breathless. Abruptly struck with the harsh reality of her utter and complete desolation, a cold, and unnervingly empty silence filled her soul. It kidnapped her starry eyed spirit and chained it down, leaving in its dreadful wake an unwanted orphan; broken, yet hell-bent on survival. Jyn Erso.
