Faces Down: Elżbi

a series of characters + art by Ernio Hernandez


Elżbi finally got to wear the dress she had long been saving up for. Her sister was getting married to her childhood sweetheart (and Elżbi’s longtime crush).

When the air raid sirens rang out that night, the music blared so loud that few knew what was coming. The bomb tore gaping holes into two structural beams, taking walls and faces down with it.

Elżbi was buried in that dress.
