A story about choosing paths. Ezme has a decision to make but what will she do in the end of this story?
Told from a very vague point of view, whose personality also unreavels as the story continues. What is her past? What is her connection to Ezme? All will be revealed!

                                                        Present Day

She stands at the brink of destruction, worlds collapsing at the feet. One step forward and her path could crumble beneath her step, one step back and she  could be watching another star shoot to the sky-and boiling up inside like a dormant volcano…

All metaphorically of course.


Ezme is nothing but a lonely wannabee, sitting at both her keyboards (musical and computerised) with ideas overflowing from her mind and spilling out via her hands, creating the beautiful notes that we hear now.

I’ve seen Ezme beforehand, seen the way she pretends to be something she’s not; seen the way she folds to their requests, just like a piece of paper, even when she knows what they are truly saying. We all see it: their backstabbing laughs and the way that they can manipulate others into thinking what they want.

Of course, Ezme is different. She is gentle, kind, intelligent, talented and, most of all, mature. She knows she can rise above all their foul words…What I want to know is whether she can rise above herself. Fly high above her fear of failure and pull her head out of its sea of dreams.

I wonder, most of all, whether she can make the right decision for the man she loves. Can she fight the overwhelming fixation to show them all, especially him, that she is better than she makes out at first?

And it was he who started it all in the first place…

The End
