In Time: Transformation

In Time: Transformation
February 18, 2012 9 Comments Writing Stephanie Ayers

Thursday you met Viola Grace. This continues the Time Keeper’s Story.

“At first, I thought perhaps it was heaven, but I knew better. I knew my fate. There’s no way I could have survived the fall from the train. I stood here, in this same spot, felt the pain, knew I was no longer whole. I’d been invaded with foreign parts and devices.” The Time Keeper flexed his arm, began  rubbing his shoulder in memory. He sighed softly. A small drop of water formed in one eye. “They may have taken my heart, but they can’t take my memories. Viola Grace, my greatest nemesis, will always be my one true love.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This week’s song was Hotel Illness by The Black Crowes. This is my story in exactly 100 words (as it should be).

Feedback is always appreciated.

Thank you for stopping by!

    Unrequited love with someone bound to destroy you! Or has destroyed you? Is he destroyed or has his role as the Timekeeper given him new lease on life…such as it is?

      Thanks, Cameron. I have been away from the Time Keeper for too long. Feels really good to spend time with him again.
