I was on top of the world for a moment. Just high enough to see the ocean of success from the peak I had climbed to. I thought for a moment that everything was finally going to be the way I had imagined.
Perhaps it still will.
I have a bad habit of letting other people get inside my head. The shitty thing is, that when it is happening I am aware of it. I can practically see the words falling from their lips. I can hear it in the tone, the slight discord of the negative, of the slight.
So the end result. I was on top of the world, now I am drowning. Oh, and I killed another character, this time it was on purpose.
