Six Sentence Story – Connection
Shelby felt like she had slipped between the cracks of her life where she was neither in or out of most things. Her phone was the connection to a reality that she was supposed to have with filters and fake smiles. The more she tried to connect to that world, the more she felt herself slipping away from who she really was.
