I just reached 2,000 views! I’m pretty sure this was done a few days ago as I’m 50 over 2,000 but it’s time to celebrate! Here you go!
“Next one is going to be a little tougher. I’m going to think of a color, and I need you to try to figure it out. Now, it’ll be hard. I’ve been doing this my whole life. Here we go.”
She shook out her hands and beckoned me close again. I leaned in closely and shut my lids, blocking everything out. My mind was a blank slate.
Meda was right; it was difficult not only to focus but also to try to hear her and try to see what she was seeing. I could hear the whispers of her mind. It was like a hushed conversation.
‘Come on, Elizabeth. Almost there.’ I could hear her cheering me on as I tried to decipher the words. I pushed harder and her mind gave, the barriers falling to the side as I was greeted with tall grass, the greenest I’d ever seen, rolling in the wind. I could feel the sun beating down, smell the fresh grass and hear the birds chirping. ‘Green,’ she murmured, as clear as if she’d whispered it in my ear.
Beaming, my eyelids fluttered open.
“Green,” I said victoriously. She tipped her head with small smile. I knew she was proud. I could see it in the way she tried to mask her emotions.

“It was almost like being locked out. But once I pushed at her mind, it was still difficult to see what exactly I needed to. She’s tough. Once you’re in her mind, she almost sets these traps; little thoughts that deter you from your goal. I think one was ‘Did I remember to do the dishes?’ That one almost got me.” I leaned back into the softness of the couch with a satisfied smile. So, what if Edric was still lurking in the back of my mind? It didn’t even matter that he seemed to take up a permanent residency there. I was finding myself. And that was the best thing I could ever ask for.
Two posts in one evening! You all earned it!
All my love,
