She’d languished in emotional oppression.
When would it end?
It was a question she always asked.
She’d fought the longing,
and longed to fight.
Then it happened…
waking with memories not her own
and too many questions.
Touched by magic,
but with none of her own
a tenacious passion would have to do.
Her survivor’s intellect burned.
She had more questions to ask.
