It’s been forever, and I wonder if I still look like I should.

You pause in the doorway. Your face reveals it was always about you. Despite your madness, I believed I could walk through fire, and I wear the battle scars of hardship, pain, and struggle. They are etched on my heart’s shield, and they call you a liar.

I introduce the characters in my parade, the countless faces, forgotten places, and lonely nights traveling to nameless cities for another show. The demands of Orion’s sword were not in vain.

I stand where you said I would never be.


Keep on writing.

Jo Hawk The Writer

  1. Which of the two can really claim to have won the argument, I wonder? She was right because she made it to fame, but he would doubtless argue that he motivated her by demanding that she should prove her dedication and skill. I imagine both parties staring in defiance at each other!
