The sullen anger at having been cheated of everything worth having before they were born, the hunger to get some of it back.
He held the point to her neck. It was a little sting, not even a bee. She was not afraid, not really. She understood. He just didn’t want to be small anymore. So she did what he asked.

Anonymous asked: do you have any new years resolutions or goals? do you believe in that kind of shit?
In the past I had a bitter view of New Years Resolutions. I was disappointed that everyone around me would only promise themselves health and relaxation one day of the year.
