The End



From my first breath I’ve dreamed of writing.  My parents devoured books, and as I grew up I knew what I would offer the world.



I would write.



Now, it’s here.  The long days and sleepless nights, the effort, tears and pain – all sit before me, wrapped in a neat leather-bound volume.  With trembling fingers, I hold it close.  I trace the letters of my name, smell the wonderful pages.



And weep bitterly.



My life, it seems, has reached its conclusion.
