You guys. You guys were SO right!!! All I’ve got to say is O.M.G. Not done the book yet (60% something…) but you guys were NOT kidding. I cried. Oh yes. THAT was intense and rough and sooooo much worse then that first part that had me all sniffling. I was only able to pick the book back up late last night and soon after, I conked out (about 1am). It couldn’t be helped. But I KNEW what was coming, ’cause you guys warned me.
And when my body decided it had enough sleep it woke me up. It said “Maryse. You bored, yet? Sleeping is boring and you know what’s coming… they said it. They said you’d cry. Aren’t you in the mood for some crazy emotions, here in the safety of your warm blankets? Aren’t ya?”
And I grumbled, “Shut up brain! I’m sleepy. It’s time for sleep. People are supposed to be asleep at 5am!!” And as I lay there, listening to my husband’s light but incessant snoring (even after a few pokes and “roll overs!!”), I gave in and said, “Ok brain. You win. But don’t get your hopes up. I’m barely even to the middle of the book, and it’s a long book. That crying part is probably near the end. You know how it goes.”
And after adjusting to the near blindness my iPad caused me in that dark, safe, comfy, warm bedroom all tucked in, my world was quickly turned upside down. It was soooooo unexpected. I mean, I knew *something* was gonna happen. I knew it. But, it’s how it came about that surprised me. Turning me into a wide-awake, teary eyed, wet-cheeked and shocked (but no longer sleepy) individual, right up until 6:30am.
It was so worth my evil brain’s 5am wake-up call. So worth it!! So worth my super sleepy, wish-I-could-sleep-all-day zombie mode I’m struggling with right now.
I’m gonna leave you with one quite – then back to the book tonight.
Ty was silent.
I decided I was done.
“The thing you don’t understand is, I’m used up, Ty. I am so done. And that, well, that used up the last I had.”
So worth it.
