I’ll be 26 this year and this has got me all reflective and shit.
So this time nearly a decade ago I was probably lying in the foetal position, due to being a loner misfit, sick of pretending to enjoy the start of the six-week Summer Holidays. The Summer of 2008 marked the end of high school life – which was pretty unbearable – and the terrifying transition into college. Additionally this particular Summer got off to a frickin’ flyer, as I had just experienced my first and by far the worst ever heartbreak.
I recall countless mornings of entering the kitchen to say hi to the rents, only for my ‘hey, I’m feeling much better today-‘ to crumble into a theatrical sob.

Wiping the sweat from their brow, one warrior swooped low and scooped up a small stone, a piece of rubble, from the ground, lifting it upwards until they and the stone were about five feet tall.
Rubbing the stone between their index finger and thumb, the warrior examined it with a cat-like fixation, looking for evidence of its former identity, its former powers.
And then, with a dramatic flick of the forearm, the stone was catapulted into the distance, into nothingness. Lost among the debris, this stone bore no significance to the warrior.
