Why now?” she cried in wolfish howls that shook her body. “I’ve been trying so hard! And this is my reward?” she screamed, raising her fist to the sky. When she exhausted her tears and her anger, she curled in her bed, still mumbling her questions. “It seems that the more I work towards my growth, the smaller my world becomes,” she whispered as she nodded. “It seems that the more I learn, the more pain I experience,” she mumbled as she fell into Dreamtime.
