I don’t know!

This week’s challenge at Dude Write is to tell an embarrassing true story, but keep it under 1500 characters. That’s around 200-300 words. Damnit, but I like my words! Anyways, here we go: I moved to Denmark from Ukraine at the age of 14. I spoke no Danish at the time, because Russian and Danish languages are a bit different. Shocking, I know.

This month’s prompt: She ran through the forest, ignoring the scrapes left on her exposed arms by the tree branches, the chilling air that sneaked through her thin dress and under her skin, the pain in her tired legs.
