Still Alive from Portal
Megan hugged herself. She rocked gently back and forth, pulling the white jacket tighter around her. The walls were padded and soundproof, but she didn’t notice. Nothing about her surroundings affected her at all; she lived in her head and sang to herself.
“This was a triumph. I’m making a note here: huge success.”
Her boyfriend had dumped her for someone else, someone younger, a blond with a bigger chest. He was her world and in losing him, he had broken her. She’d snapped. She wasn’t even sure where the knife came from, but suddenly she had one in her hand. She wasn’t upset, nooo. She was happy for him. He had won someone “better.” Even though he broke her heart, tore it into pieces, and threw it in the fire, she was happy for him. She wanted him to go away. She made him go away. The knife sliced through his flesh as easily as scissors through paper.
While he lay dying, she was still alive. When he was dead, she was still alive. Still alive. Still alive.
First, I wanted to share this thought for the day:
Secondly, I wanted to thank everyone for your ever gracious support and prayers!! You are all such a blessing to me and I thank God for each and every one of you!!!! Your thoughtfulness means so much to me. Thank you again with all my heart!
Thirdly, after seeing all of the comments that have been left in my absence, I began to stress out over how many there were to reply to. After a few minutes of arguing with myself about it, I decided that it was something that, although I’ve not ever done this before, I needed to not worry about. Therefore, if you have left a response for me in the last few days that has not been replied to, it probably won’t be for just this once, I promise to avoiding repeating this decision but I just don’t feel up to weeding my way through the over 60 comments that have been left over the last week. I’m sorry, it doesn’t mean that I have not read them nor that I don’t appreciate them all!! Please forgive me!
While I am feeling well enough to sit up for a short period of time, I was going to try to do a few posts. God bless you all!!
Love and hugs,
