Slipping in to Darkness

Her calm face and blank expression did not betray the battle that was going on in her mind between reason and instinct. Reason had piled up evidences. It was showing her the direction in which she ought to move. Instinct was challenging reason. It was giving her strength to disbelieve the evidence. But strangely she felt weak instead of feeling empowered. While she considered the facts she was becoming more certain and exact. But her gut instincts confused her. Perhaps her need to believe was fuelling her instincts, which was defeating the forces of reason. She didn’t know. But she felt an odd sense of solace while she considered what her instincts were pointing at. Beads of perspiration formed on her upper lip because of the struggle to remain composed. As she closed her eyes giving in to her inner feelings, she did not realise that she was slowly slipping in to darkness.
