An anhedonic girl works as an exotic dancer in the dark district.


     Some events change your life forever.  It sounds cliché but it’s true.  Unfortunately most of these events are of a negative nature.  Such salient occasions come in many forms and everyone experiences them. 

     For some the seminal event can be as severe as losing their job for others it could be losing a loved one or being the victim of a heinous crime.  I believe that these events are all equal in significance and horror for the individual experiencing them.   

     It’s how you react to them that really determines the rest of your life.  Terrible things can make you stronger; can reveal paths and truths you couldn’t see before.  They can also break you and turn you into something ugly. 

     It wasn’t that long ago that such an event happened to me although it seems like years have passed.  I can’t remember everything that clearly.  I walked through life in a daze.  Nothing seemed worth caring about. 

     Maybe I had the wrong attitude or maybe it wasn’t my fault at all.  I guess I’ll never know.  I still can't believe I did what I did.  I never want to experience that again.


The End
