“It's missing,” Azazel repeated. “You told me this was the place, Malcolm... I'm growing impatient of playing games with you.”
“Oh...” he managed, his voice wavering on the solitary syllable. He'd meant to say more, but truth be told he was afraid of his master... everyone was now.
“You dare defy me, and that's all you can say for yourself? Oh?”
Azazel sighed, an errant bolt of energy emerging from his fingers, destroying Malcolm in one cruel blow.
“You want something done right, you've got to do it yourself.”
Not a fluke.
Turns out my ground turkey was recalled because it was contaminated with salmonella, and my body just didn't register the toxin until the second day.
Food poisoning. Not fun.
What a pain in the ass this whole situation has been.
There are just some days I'd like to be able to do over.
I'm tired of having bad days. I don't know what to do with them sometimes other than cry, take them personally, and try to understand things... figure out how to change them. It doesn't feel terribly good... it never has. Maybe I take things too personally? All I know is how certain events make me feel, and I try to react based on that.
Maybe honesty isn't really what people are looking for.
But just as quickly as things crept up, time will inevitably leave us... and that's what I'm really worried about.
Saying goodbye will be the hardest thing I've ever had to face.
That being said, I think the storms have subsided for now. I certainly hope so... there's only a few days left before vacation and I have errands I need to run today.
Don't ruin this for me weather!
It only gets better from here.
I'm just so excited at the moment I can hardly think straight... I keep feeling like I'll forget something, but I've been preparing for this for months.
Time to enjoy it!
I guess there's no way of knowing other than mustering up some bravery... I wish I had more.
I think a part of me is just scared by how fast time goes by sometimes and how far away I am from where I thought I'd be.
Hopefully things continue getting better... I need that so much.
Had a pretty good day today, walking around the park... we even checked out the water park, which seems to have changed quite a bit since the last time I've been there. I managed to hurt my foot though, which isn't terribly great... I blame walking around in sandals, even though I wasn't in them very long.
I can only hope that doesn't last a while. It sucks being on vacation with an injury... that wasn't exactly what I had in mind.
Kisses make everything better though, I've found out.
I'm beginning to think it's likely a bone bruise or some sort of fracture, neither of which will clear up any time soon.
This is not how I envisioned things going.
Not at all.
I kind of figured the amount of hanging around indoors might lead to something, and it kind of did... almost. Only I clammed up and ruined it for myself, and now I'm back to the drawing board with it.
It's getting frustrating, the amount of time I've lost simply because I've felt scared or frozen in place. I don't think anyone expected things to go quite this way... it's time to react.
It's called the Maverick, and it's in the Frontier Town area. It kind of looks like the Millennium Force with its track type, and it's even made by the same company... but it's way better.
Curvy, crazy, awesome roller coaster.
I can't believe the bone village is still there, on the one stretch of land... I remembered that from when I was a kid. Call me silly, but that's one of the best things about riding the train... seeing the animated skeletons come to life.
Some things never seem to get old... I love it.
The light show is called Starlight Experience, and it's only running a little while longer than we'll be there. There are supposedly over a million lights back there, and they're all set up to change pattern and color depending on the music playing in the background.
I love it.
That being said, it was a rather productive day. I wish the whole trip could have been that way, at least from the park point of view. It was really fun.
I knew things would be hard, but I didn't know they'd be this hard this soon.
At least I managed to take her out to Outback Steakhouse for one last meal together... that was nice. And so was spending most of the day snuggled up in bed. I just can't even explain how much I'm going to miss this... just being together, happy.
Even the mundane things were beyond amazing.
Never take for granted what it is to be able to see the person you love every day if you have the privilege, because there are people out there who would give anything to have that.
But this wasn't goodbye... it was a “see you soon.”
I hope it'll never be goodbye.
Happiness, for me, is currently in New York City.
Here's to hoping tomorrow will be better.
