An Escapist's Dream
I ended it all on a whim.
I'd never really been attached to my life, but I havn't wanted to cause undue stress or sadness to those around me, so I stayed. However, once upon a daytime, a whimsy came upon me, an excitable happy whimsy, where I was away with the fae, and I had no cares or worries in the world, it was beautifull and delightfull, and never before had I loved those around me more, however there is an end to everything, even happines, and so, as the darkness and depths of numbness and procrastination loomed, I decided that I could not return, be it over my dead body that i return to the numbness of before, and I knew myself quite well you see, I knew it would only be a matter of time before I surrendered myself, as there is nothing more insidious than numbness you see, so, I knew I had to take drastic measures.
And now I'm here, in a world I'd always dreamed of. I'm a peasant here, I'm poor, I'm weak, and the only people I matter to are my friends and family and it is delightfull, it is one of the best feelings to exist in this state, where numbness cannot exist. And the system, oh the system, it feels like an old friend after all the stories, one that you sit back with and relax, it is the greatest motivator I have ever had to simply watch your skills improve and see tiny improvements quantified, and it is even more enjoyable to try and find loopholes, to find the seams in the system and play with them, watching others see them is a truly beautiful experience.
Author- Hi all, this is my 3rd story on here, I'm trying to get better at writing, and hope to one day become an author full time, I'm going to make a patreon at some point, but I won't be hiding chapters in it I don't think, I don't know what incentives I'll have if I'm being honest, I just know that I'm going to try my best, and if I disapear for months and stop posting, I've probably surrendered myself, so, apologies from me in advance. Also, a big thank you to anyone reading and please leave a review with your opinion "-)
(Also also, anyone who feels like the character in my story feels, please note that this is entirely a work of art, and sadly this world is truly merely a dream, I love you all, and my dms are always open for chats)
