Dream a Little Dream of Me.

Ashley, Hope, and Pandora

box finished, by lizzys lifeAsh knew how it would end, she wasn’t stupid.

Opening the box to show Pandora risked loosing everything that resided there. She wasn’t sure if she’d be able to close the box again, and she knew how dangerous that could be. She fought within herself over whether to open the box, but there was never really any question. She could not refuse her this. Not her.  Not this. Pandora knew well what would happen, and had asked anyway.

And tearful, happy, grateful, sad, and horrified at Pandora’s sacrifice, Ash eventually raised the lid.

She was overwhelmed with the sharing of the contents and her head swam in the glory of it. It had been so long since she had been able to share her box with someone. So, so very long.

The contents of the box nearly escaped before she could close the lid again. She had almost dallied too long.

“Goodbye, Pandora,” she whispered against the lid. “I’ll miss you.”

“don’t miss me. you’re better off. i’ll curl up here, with Hope. i’m sure she’s been lonely.”

Ashley wept bitterly, and resealed the box. This time, for always.

    Some folks for a lifetime have always fcuked with me…thru judgment, lies, their jealous fallacies and make believes.

    And, they’re really STUPID, because if I opened Pandora’s Box – OMG!!

    If I really let all the filth and secrets out, just Who You Really Are — What would you do?

    (that’s what Pandora’s Box made me think of as I personally read the words)

    Have a Good Weekend, I’m marching in our Pride Parade Sunday, tonight I’m going to enjoy the events and drink some jack daniels and beer – YaY!

    Hi Miss Vicki,

    WordPress de-listed me some time ago and Mom has gotten used to it, so dropping the F bomb isn’t a big deal anymore.

    Just so y’know.

    Some things I write are just a sharing of a piece of fiction with the world, inspired by whatever.

    Some things I write, like this little vignette, carry layers of hidden meanings, veiled thinly by fiction.

    …and sometimes, every now and again, I am compelled to write things like this in the open, to share my heart with everyone, but they are really only understood in their entirety by one pair of eyes.

    Thank you for sharing your heart, and have fun with Jack at the parade.

    Kisses Miss Vicki

    I think whatever resolve or fortitude or strength I had left today just collapsed under those words.

    Thank you for coming by, pandora. And thank you for sharing such a beautiful quote.

  6. pandora says:

    No. You have amazing strength and fortitude. Far more so than me. Be strong, please, so i can continue to draw my strength from your example.

    Well, for you pandora, I’ll do what I can. I can’t make any promises, though. Not today.

    You should know that seeing your name in a comment at The Boy‘s is what got me thinking about this.

    In a way, you inspired this post.

  8. pandora says:

    i’m touched and humbled. And there’s no need for promises.

    i know.

    pandora

    I’m glad you’re not angry.

    Kisses to you, pandora.
