Excerpt:

When she came to, she didn’t know how much time had passed. The hard dirt beneath her was cold against her soft cheek and she could feel someone's heavy presence. Pit pats of dirt pelted on top of her back first in small bits and then in shovel fulls. She couldn’t move because she was too weak. She tried to jiggle an arm, but it was as if her arm muscles weren’t connected to the fibers in her brain anymore. She couldn’t move anything. The scream she wanted so desperately to release was trapped in her dry throat. She was paralyzed. All she could do was lay there and listen as he piled the dirt on top of her. The pain from her broken leg was no longer present and she wondered how that was possible as her vision began to blur. Soon she was unconscious again.
