It was a cold windy night. Within the windows of a popular strip club in the heart of Manhattan, a young girl's eyes stared across the windows of the cold cell like room. She watched the swaying tree directly across the window, admiring it existence which was very different from hers. She was also checking out the weather outside: it seemed very windy, cold and uncertain; the wind blowing in an opposite direction than usually would. She compared the state of the weather to her life, evrythng about it at the moment seemed wrong; just like her life and how she was feeling at that very moment.It was going to be an unusually cold night.
