The Little Blessed One. Ah, her trembling breath reminded me of a tune of Vertigo, the haunting Suite of Bernard Herrmann. Do you love classical music? What is your favorite? Let’s imagine you stop at a hotel,...

“The Pearl Territory”, ch 17 – Unknown (18+)

Unknown Voice #privatejournal  Another fuckin’ day. Do you have any idea how tired I am of having to go through yet another damn day? Of course you don’t. Your human scope is too limited. I don’t envy you, but I do. I don’t because: A) such limited appreciation of the fine details would make me clingy, unnecessarily sentimental. I said sentimental, NOT emotional!
