The Road Less Traveled

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

A young man walks his destined path... One day, however, he decides that he's going to stop and take a look around. He nudges his way through the masses until he reaches the boundary of the path. He takes a step across and spies a woman sobbing in a hole not much higher than her head. He asks her what she's doing there. She will not answer him, but grabs at his leg and begs him to join her. He tells her that he's headed for the woods aside the path, but she still pulls at him. 'You're not moving anywhere,' he says. She replies, 'Where I am is better than where you're headed; trust me.' The young man humors her, but keeps the desire to explore the Woods of Life locked safely away in his mind. 'I'll stay for as long as you need me,' he says. In time he'll come to say, 'I'm growing rather fond of you.' And when he truly falls in love, beyond anything anyone could have ever anticipated, she will break his heart. It is a classic tale that has yet to cease repeating. When she finally breaks his heart I suspect he will wander the woods in sorrow and rememberance, but the end of this classic tale is never certain. What will become of him? I ask you to discover that for yourself...
