Purpose

Julia gave a small, almost bitter laugh. "Do you know what it's like? All of a sudden having a purpose? All these years... I'd given up on myself. At the ripe old age of twelve, I gave up on ever being anything, being anyone. On ever having a life worth living."

"But you never tried to kill yourself, did you?"

"I'm not a quitter." She looked off into the distance, took a sip of coffee. "I didn't know what I was living for, but damned if I was going to give up. If I gave up, they'd win - my foster father, and people like him."

"So now you have something to live for."

She looked directly at him. "I didn't ask for this. I didn't want this. Something, maybe, yeah. But I never wanted to be responsible for anyone else. And now I'm responsible for an entire race. And there's no way to walk away from it. I have a purpose, and I'm stuck with it."

This is Blogathon 2006. I'm posting every half hour for 24 hours, to raise money for RAINN.

We're still at $2,572.60! Let's see if we can push it to $3,000!

Remember, every dollar facilitates one phone call to RAINN's hotline.

Sponsor Me!

Please?


C'mon, y'all! *poke* *poke* *wait* *poke*

I'm alert! The world needs more lerts!

irana is digging through my BPAL box! She says that it is very pretty. And that I will never run out of scents. And I agree on both counts.
