The Boat of Dreams
It was truly amazing when you think about it. A group of strangers becoming closer than blood relatives. The memories of the shared experiences and the bonding during those experiences was utterly unbreakable. It was the perfect secret and everyone knew, yet not enough people knew.
I didn’t think I would be here at this point, but here I am, heart pounding, chest beating, lungs screaming as I am wrapped up in the delicious joy of my newly formed family. This feeling is better than drugs, better than sex, better than Christmas and birthday and every holiday that I’ve ever celebrated. It’s intoxicating, heady and dizzying. I want to drown in its intensity.
When it first started, I didn’t think this could be something that I wanted. But now I know better. Now I am stronger and more connected and more like myself than I ever thought I could be. And I want more. I want everything.
