Chapter 31: Everything You Never Wanted

In Uncategorized on January 31, 2011 at 1:33 am

I’m still out of it, stumbling through the simplest of tasks. I’m healthy as an ox. But my mind and my heart aren’t in it anymore. I want nothing more to be my former, confident self, but finding that lost piece of me is like grasping at smoke.

This time I’ve snuck into a garden party. It’s everything I thought I wanted. Royal in-laws, a manor home with perfectly manicured grounds, a towering library with greying volumes in foriegn tongues.

But in all my sneaking about, I encounter myself. She’s curled up, crying into her dress, and I don’t understand why.
