My name is Rokhshana, I’m 19.
I was stoned to death in 2015, for the crime of being in love. My body has merged with the soil somewhere in the middle eastern mountains and it will fertilize that land again.

This is a story of a girl who was stoned to death, now laying down in the middle of the oldest altar. Her heart turned to stone, shattered to pieces under her feet.
