Lorna had spent most of the day out, once she was sure she could find her way back to the apartment she was staying at, anyway. Her first stop in the morning was at a church. The crowd was sizable and it made her uncomfortable, but it had been four months since she had been to a mass of any kind, so she felt she had to go. Close to Christmas, the Church was decorated for the season, the nativity being quite impressive.
She didn't linger though, leaving as soon as the service was done and making a note of the confession times, as that was something her family did monthly. She hadn't really missed it, but it was all about feeling normal for the first time in months. As normal as a green haired girl could. But no one seemed to notice or make a big deal of it.
After that she wandered and stopped for coffee. In line at the Starbucks, she sneezed, the lights flickering and likely wiped a couple of cards in the process. No one seemed to notice though, and after she payed for her drink she made her way out to what was the real goal of the day, the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center. She had wanted to see it ever since she was a kid.
For a time she stood there, simply watching the lights on the tree and enjoying her drink. Outside for the first time in months.
