The Girl with the Million Lives

She is the girl with the million lives.

Lives lived, lives half-lived; lives that could have been, and lives that will be – there they all are, quiet behind her eyes, as she stares into space from across the table.

She tells you about some of them sometimes, those lives she keeps inside – the adventurer in the night, the ice queen, the hoper, the dreamer, the non-believer – and you sit, listening as hard as you can, partly to hear her voice, and partly in the hope that maybe you are in one of them.
