The ache began around 11 in the morning. A result of my negligence. I do not regret living with this ache, although I agree that avoiding it wouldn’t have been a tough task. I often let myself slip in the hard arms of misery. I often do that. As I sit now and feel the ache breaking me into two, I hear the cooing of an innocent bird, the cooing having no impact on me. It is as noisy as the noises these boys are making while they play their silly game. Perhaps, it’s the noises of these boys that’s making the melodious hum of the bird sound bitter. Perhaps, their noises aren’t actually noises, but to me, they appear so. Perhaps, I am struck by lightning or I am getting dragged across a swamp with pointy swords sticking out of it. I am waiting for the night so that I can truly become invisible for a while.

      1. Omg so sweet. šŸ™šŸ’• Thank you so much and no, please: that’s me!! (the sometimes-stupid-sounding one šŸ˜‚) thanks again Tomic. I am so peeved about the review that they don’t include the whole thing in their rejection notice so I can just use it again with offending whatevers taken out. Also it took them a couple of days to reply to it. But we must battle on. :)) šŸ˜ŠšŸ¹šŸ’ƒšŸ¼

      2. Hey again Tomic, just saw that my redo review (relatively clean and boring lol ;)) got published. Sadly it’s on French amazon. (I tried to do it on US or Canada but it wouldn’t let me.) Hugs and thanks for all your caring. I genuinely loved the book. It’s you. It’s beautifully done. It’s awesome. šŸ’›
