“Two can keep a secret if one of them is dead.”
We need to talk about something. If you’re looking for the absolute truth about what happened, you might as well stop here. We will never definitively know what happened. It’s unfortunate, but realistic. One of our protagonists is a pathological liar, and the other is dead.
All I can offer you is my understanding of the truth.
I think the best way to do this is to submerge you completely and hold you under.
“Anyway, you don’t know what’s going to happen. I’m only just thickening the plot.
–I’d say it was pretty thick already.
Thick plots are my specialty. If you want a thinner kind, look elsewhere.” – Margaret Atwood
“Thus strangely are our souls constructed, and by such slight ligaments are we bound to prosperity and ruin.” – Mary Shelley
“shapeless desires, brief imaginary glints of other lives she could be living.” -Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
“And I have known the eyes already, known them all” – T.S. Eliot
“And indeed there will be time
To wonder, ‘Do I dare?’ and, ‘Do I dare?’
Time to turn back and descend the stair
Do I dare
Disturb the universe?
In a minute there is time
For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse.” -T.S. Eliot
“All loss is one, and one loss becomes all.” -Diana Gabaldon
“When the wind blows the water white and black.
We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown.” -T.S. Eliot
