OneWord - Itch

The prompt over at OneWord is "itch."
See the word, write for 60 seconds, post.
Here you go:

The drugs never could fill the void. They left her tense, edgy. Clawing at her skin at the odd intervals when her emancipated body needed another fix.
She'd have to do things for the money, things that turned her stomach.
But the itch was undeniable.
The high just too sweet.
