Journal Entry: November 1 – Their Birthday
I craved it,
Chased it relentlessly.
Strength. Invincibility. A dragon to slay and a battle won. A spark of something that would make us….More.

We wanted a taste. We wanted to possess that spark. We became convinced, all of us, that it could be ours, that it would change everything…for the better.

We lost everything that really mattered.
And the causalities I never anticipated have become the monsters she must slay.
