A window into the world of a little lady (old on the inside, once a cat) and another (still undecided). One is seeking her life's greatest adventure yet, while the other watches the world around her progress in slow motion.
Kerri and Eva used to be secrets. Names to hide behind and shy away from. Now they're fond nicknames; terms of endearment; codewords for a memory bank. K&E have become our friends and with them we do what we do best - fangirl.
i am all a mess inside. i clench my hands into fists, working into it one knuckle at a time until i can feel the strain in each finger. i hope the balls of energy i build in my palms will relieve the tension from within me, but i hope to no avail. still i am a wreck. still i tremble with this energy.
the moon shrinks before me as i see snow dusting the ground for the very first time. it carves into icy mountains, etched like lace, giving way only to defiant growth. the trees weep. the snow stretches on.
