One of Those "Once Upon a Time..." things

Once upon a time, there was a girl.

I must tell you, just because the story begins this way, it is not a fairy tale. Neither will it end with a happily ever after.

Once upon a time, there was a girl.
She used to listen a lot, to people, their problems, their conversations.
She gave time and a ear, sometimes a very patient one.

Some days, she would let out a silent scream. Of course no one heard. Or could ask why or what, they didn't hear.

It didn't matter, most times. When at times it did, a magical, safe room would appear. In there, the silent scream became real. Around that room, she could run, for hours, sometimes for days.

Once outside, she would lock the room, hope to never find the key to enter again and pick up the smile that had slipped off just outside. And the next conversation would begin, cheerfully "How was your day? What happened?

(No, this might not make sense to you. Or to me at a later date.)

Makes perfect sense. Believe it or not... it does make a lot of sense. You have the skill to put it all in words.. :)

The rain indeed, Ashley!

Saras, it was actually not meant to be understood! He he! ;-) But you know what I mean!
