A sudden, unexpected visitor made her overthink her decisions and their life took a turn for the better.
My submission to the “Year of the Ox” contest.
Foreword ::: For those who are strongly against it, there is some rape at the beginning of the story; it is to help set in that the main character has very good reason for running away from home, the rape ends when actual story begins.

… Except something feels missing. Wrong, somehow. Did she truly escape unscathed?
This story takes place in my original setting created for “Eyes in the Dark” and “Electrickery,” and was written as a speed-writing challenge with EighthSpan. The goal was to choose a subject matter for the other person and write what was given. I chose Inari, and was assigned Ropers. The Roper has not received much love, so I aimed to change that. I wrote this story in about 3 days, not including editing/proofreading. The goal was to keep the story at or under 20k words, which I failed miserably, coming in at over 31k. Oh, well. Better luck next time. Enjoy!
