Five-Hundred Word Challenge 437: A Day of Adventure

That’s it, I’m checking out, or am I?

I’ve been awake for far too long at this stage and feel as tough it is slowly doing me in.

How long have I been awake for? A little over an hour.

It is far too long. I need sleep. I may have had a good amount of sleep last night, but sleep is what I need for I am tired and being tired requires soothing with the more sleep.

I could just get up and do things that need to be done, but that would make too much sense.

A day of adventure is planned out ahead of me so right now in my down time I am taking care of business, as it were.

I am going to have breakfast. Perhaps before then I shall have a shower. These two events shall occur, but they won’t occur concurrently for me. One will precede the other. That much I do know.

After breakfast, I shall be doing the event of heading off to work for a few hours in order to do the thing that I do.

After that, I shall walk. Walk toward my current residence. Along the way I must go into an alley.

In this alley will be a door of secrets that must be addressed in a certain manner in order to be shown the rest of the way in which I will head, as opposed to foot.

From there, I shall turn around and see that the buildings were never really there, but always in my heart all along.

I will then realise that the city is my own construction and I’ve set it up as a defence mechanism to allow the running of the away from things that I felt I could not face, but with this realisation I of course will understand that you can’t run away from some things and sometimes you need to face your biggest fears in order to proceed toward something far better and bigger than yourself.

These bigger things of course being the things that were controlling what I was afraid of, so the sooner I tear down the veil of illusion that I have allowed to be cast upon me, the better.

Once this has happened the desert will finally be open and among the ruins of a once prosperous city I shall walk out and search for that which will try to claim is my redeemer and strike it down I shall, for justice is not something that is kind or callous.

This will of course show me the way further and soon I shall be in the thick of it all, looking for something that may be construed as a sign that will not so much show me the way, but give me a sense of meaning to understand, despite how meandering it may turn out to be.

I guess I have a fairly busy day in front of me, so I should probably get ready.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 07:03:31


I didn’t have much drive to write this morning, but once my imagination took hold, this came out and I think that it’s okay.

Not bad, not good, but okay.

The start could have been better.

I do have to admit that it is one of the few times I am satisfied with the results.
