This week’s words: Flame Obedient Dark Earn a Page (to learn a valuable lesson) Abrasive Gravity Complexion Mercy Harrow Xaeax (to get drawn into useless circular logic from paradoxes; a state of confusion resulting from mind games) Ability Fetter
When Lester reflected on it all, everything stemmed from his desire to be obedient. He wanted to please and to say as he went through life earning a page many times over should have given him the ability to discern more it didn’t as he found himself making the same mistakes over and over.
Instead whatever he learned only fettered him more and more to the dark merciless June.
She had been in the early days the flame of his life. He found her attractive, a well-educated woman whose opinions he liked to hear and discuss.
Once she had moved in he discovered a dark side to her. Conversations became reduced to xaeax encounters, as she’d argue the need for him to be a better man than he was. She had an abrasive personality, hidden from him until they joined forces and he soon learned the gravity of the situation when she continuously questioned his entire reason for being.
Each night was a harrowing encounter, which left him for the most part a drooling mess. The entire complexion of their relationship changed, he found himself caught up in her endless mind games, the gravity of the situation dawning on him when she began to argue his cooking skills were such that any dog would reject what he was offering.
His desire to be obedient and the flame to keep living went out over time, he needed to escape the xaeaxious nature of his life and in the fifteen years since he had freed himself he had had cause to reflect and decide to be merciful to himself and work towards living an unfettered life.
