Jacy kicked open the Shed door and staggered in.
Squinting in the darkness, she noticed a musty aroma...and a thick layer of dust showing that no one had been here for quite a while. Reaching into
her pocket, she pulled out a lighter and fumbled for a cigarette. After inhaling deeply she slumped to the floor like a rag doll.
"Honey....I'm home..." she whispered sadly.
The last few months had been rough. Definitely challenging.
Separated from her family, Jacy had been forced to work as an indentured servant until her (rather insane) employer finally paid for her passage back
Exhausted, and feeling somewhat traumatized...Jacy closed her eyes and allowed herself to drift back in memories of happier times. She saw rainbows,
and heard music. So familiar....so beautiful.
"Where are they?" she wondered. "Are they okay?"
As a lone tear slid down her cheek, a phantom voice sang out, "You're not alone. You're never alone."
"Sophie?? Sophie are you here? Whimsy? Who said that??"
Even Sophie had lost track of Jacy, out there...on their big adventure (or 'venture' as Sophie would say).
"Is anybody here?" Jacy cried out into the empty darkness.
How would she begin to find them all? Why wasn't her magic working anymore? So many questions, and yet no answers....none at all.
"Find yourself, and you'll find them."
"Wha-a-a-at??" Jacy stuttered.
Then, frustrated, she spat out "I'm here. I am here. Find myself? Oh....I KNOW where I am....finally...."
Picking herself up off the floor, she stomped into the bedroom....and with a "poof" of dust, collapsed onto the bed.
"I just need to rest for a bit," she thought to herself. "I'm over-tired, and arguing....with nobody...cuz there's nobody here to argue
Then...like the previously disturbed dust particles....Jacy settled into the duvet and sank into a deep slumber.
"You're not alone. You're never alone."
I love you all. I've missed you all.
Not gonna bitch/moan/whine about how awful things have been lately (which they have!)...instead, I thought I would just....write. Something I
haven't done since my last post here.
But hey! it's Christmas...and Christmas is a time to be with family!
So I'm really going to try to get back to being here again....(hmm, what an awkward sentence, lol).
On a regular basis, I mean.
