The pants were white, though not pure white and not quite full length. They ended just before her ankles. A design decorated them. It was an abstract floral design, with shades of dark blue, deep red, and a hint of purple. Lines and curves of these colors formed a flower-like cluster, which then repeated itself across the pants with regular spacing.Laura sighed and traced one of the flower designs with her fingertip. On the run. It was really hard to believe. There went her plans for a flower garden. This wasn’t the way it was supposed to work. Once they left home and made it across the Wild, they were supposed to be safe. Once they learned to fit in with society in the western kingdom, they were supposed to live peaceful lives.
