This is the Little Match Girl
For those who don’t know or kind of forgot the story, it’s a Danis folk tale of little girl who had to sell all her matches during Christmas Eve in fear that if she doesn’t her abusive father will beat her. Because no one bought her matches, she took shelter OUT IN THE COLD where it was SNOWING and lit the matches to stay warm. Because the weather SUCKED, she had dreams of her dead grandmother and then she died because it was COLD.
In my story, the little girl lit herself on fire to stay warm
