Eternal Curse: Battleground 6.1 (wip)

I never bothered to ask Mira, but I knew how she really felt about Africa. To her, she was returning home, but under rather stressful circumstances. In her own little way, Mira was happy and excited to go to Africa. She wanted to see the place where she was born and to see the people who lived there. I was sad for her in a way because of the life she chose with me; she would never have the opportunity to truly immerse herself in the culture she’d been taken from as a child. There would always be a more pressing matter keeping her from connecting to that part of her past, but alas Mira continued to prove herself strong, taking pleasure and finding treasures where and when she could along the way.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. If you like it let me know and share it with others. See you next time, Toi Thomas. #thetoiboxofwords
