“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”
― Albert Einstein

“Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed.”
― G.K. Chesterton

“Fear isn’t so difficult to understand. After all, weren’t we all frightened as children? Nothing has changed since Little Red Riding Hood faced the big bad wolf. What frightens us today is exactly the same sort of thing that frightened us yesterday. It’s just a different wolf.”
― Alfred Hitchcock

“Deeper meaning resides in the fairy tales told to me in my childhood than in the truth that is taught by life.”
― Friedrich von Schiller

Heart Missing


The house still smells like her.

It’s not obvious, not to everyone else, because hell, there is no one else like Cal, not for miles and miles and miles. But to him, it’s like a sucker punch the second he unlocks the door of his tiny, crappy little apartment in the city. He’d never liked the place much, but it had been good for work, good for having a real life among other people. (He always liked the cabin better, but she’s all over that too, in the smell of the sofa cushions and the crumples of the bed sheets, in the mug he can’t quite get clean after she stained it with her three day old coffee as a thick as tar. She’s in that sweater she never stopped wearing the whole time she was there. He almost wished she’d taken it with her too.) But a real life isn’t what he wants anymore. Not after everything. Not after the massive screw over that was his last work project.

After all, the company had given him enough money to do whatever the hell he wanted, even if it felt like blood money.
