It Wasn’t Meant to…


..be? ..be this way? ..happen? ..happen this way?

Breathlessly pacing around the room, she looked around trying to decide what last pieces to take with her. Her indecisiveness was now -more than ever before- a thorn in the flesh. She could not choose between what to take and what to leave behind. Her wardrobe- though in the family for long- was too heavy to take along. Her bed- though expensive- was too much of a hassle to arrange to take with her last minute. Her medieval French mirror- old and beautiful- could easily be replaced. So could clothes. No, I need to take some. Who knows when or where I’ll have the chance to buy some. While packing some underwear and gathering a few changes of clothing, she remembered the tiny silver treasure-box her mother had left her. Under the bed. No, it wasn’t there. Behind the chest of drawers. No, it wasn’t there either. Where is it? She was beginning to panic. There was no way she would leave without it. She had been robbed of too much already.. her innocence, her joy, her peace, her health.. I will not let him have that!

Her eyes wandered aimlessly around what had been her home for 17 months. At least they had called it that. They had called themselves her family too. Family. She laughed at the thought of that. She laughed, first silently, then out loud.. until it became a hysteric laugh. It sounded frightening- even to her. She decided to keep quiet. Get yourself together! She told herself. There’s no time to waste. She sank into her bed; not sure on where to go to.. or indeed, whether to go at all. It was never meant to be this way…

    She’s probably a foster child looking to run away. But unless she’s 18, she can go nowhere but the streets.

    But then again, why should we decide if she runs, if we do not even know exactly why she is running.

    Why are you running away?Hoobastank

      LOL.. is this supposed to be a joke or a provocation? Haha
      She’s not a foster child.. and even if she wanted to be one deep-down-inside, she would have had to change her mind now anyway.. 😉

      And- not wanting to play God- her (immediate) future is in YOUR hands now. Eventually, whatever will be will be.. whether she runs away or not- there is only so much one (in this case: you readers) can really influence.. after all, I am still the writer *evil laugh* 🙂

feel free to say something..
