Chapter One-Ugh. That annoying light is filtering through the dusty window again. How many times have I told her to clean that? Oh, right.. She would never remember that. Nothing I say is ever remembered. I am a stranger, constantly having to remind her that I am here, repeatedly fighting for my right to be more significant than a box of cereal that sits on the broken shelf. "Might as well get up," I mutter as I head into the living room.

-I roll my eyes. She is inquiring, no, monitoring where I am yet again. It's as if she doesn't trust me. No, scratch that 'as if'. She doesn't trust me at all.

Hoping that the sun will continue shining as I dance in the rain.
