Here it lay, discarded in a rose bush hidden from the rest of the world.  Had she not been in the situation she would never have found it.  Thorny vines wrapped around the blade as if protecting it, and even as she tried to pry it from the bush, the thorns cut into her hand.  It must have been left here, forgotten for ages.  But now it was hers.  A glimmer of hope in this unforgiving place.  She had to give it a name.  Only one came to mind...
