Prompt for November 11, 2015

Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:

She was sitting down at the side of her father’s grave, gently shredding the blade of grass in her hand. With a precision and a patience that had always confounded her father she took that single blade of grass and slit the blade from top to bottom with her fingernail, leaving it still attached to the sheath at the bottom. She had been sitting for quite a while as many of the blades of grass around her had been shredded before the security officer came close to remind her that the swearing in ceremony was occurring in less than an hour. Less than an hour to the fruition of her fathers plans and the death of hers.

Post a link to the story in the comments.
