Prompt: #85 - Pain (for [community profile] fiction_drabbles)

Abandoning her former life hadn’t hurt as much as she’d expected. Instead, leaving everything behind had filled her with an undeniable sense of satisfaction. She hadn’t bothered to say goodbye to anyone, nor had she made an effort to tell her landlord that she was moving out. She had simply quit her job, thrown away most of her belongings, and disappeared.

The pain came later, when a chance meeting revealed the truth of things: she hadn’t been missed. Most people hadn’t even realized she’d left.

For the first time, she knew what it meant to be truly and utterly alone.
