I won the ROD#6!!!!!!!

I can't believe it! I'm so honored.

I really have no words, so I'll just leave you with my (winning!) entry:

Murderous, it took everything from her. Stripped her body and soul and made her as cracked and parched as the desert. Twin scars from the permanent I.V. lines marred the inside of both arms. A new open, unhealed hole gaped in the center of her chest where the unfamiliar Hicman Central Line snaked along muscle and bone into her heart, delivering poisoned medicine directly into traitorous veins of cancerous blood. Veins pulsing and throbbing and killing her one dying cell by one dying cell.

The body’s betrayal of itself is the worst betrayal of all.
