“Record Keeper, you want to know why I bother with the Lady Red? Despite everything that we have gone through? Everything that has been done to me and that I have done?”
“Yes my Lord Akoroth. Would it not be better for all if you just severed ties and moved along?.”
“Hmmm…well look at it this way –
Some have relationships. Others have a court full of Lords. Some just have complicated lives.
But we all have our own walls and go around in our own circles.
In the end, does it really matter who noticed us and how many times? Who, after all, even sees our friendships except us?
Our bleached bones and ashes will not remember any of it.
In the end, we are all just looking for acknowledgement and to be liked.
In such a world, when we ignore that first desperate cry, we begin a wretched cycle without end.
No. Such cycles must be broken.
I think, no I believe that if I am her friend, then someone else will break into my walls.
After all, unexpected and unrequested, did you not find me, my friend?”
“So you ARE going to post comments on her Facebook posts?”
“Will they be nice comments?”
“I said I would try to be her friend, I didn’t say I was performing miracles…”
“Indeed my Lord.”
