Most days anymore I feel like I could never make it to $50,000 goal.
I wake up often in the middle of the night due to hunger. I sleep away so many hours away that could be put to good use.
So I talked to my only friend the tree….
I know it may sound crazy. But I swear she’s answering back! Yes I said she… The apple tree explained alot to me.
Like how all tress die and they would appreciate once they are gone for us humans the replant from one the fruits she has given us humans for nutrition for so very long.
She also asked me to give her a name.
I called the tree Velma.
Velma explained that she hasn’t heard of anyone else speaking to plants in her life. That trees call out for help and people never listen.
I felt bad for her, yes the tree… But I did promise once she dies. I will replant one or two of the apples from her tree to honor her memory.
..Then one day it happened.
While picking fruits she passed on.
I know this may sound silly to rest of you hearing my thoughts and feelings. But I mourned Velma, like a person would a dear friend or family member.
I didn’t care if Velma was a tree.. She was there for me in hours of loneliness and nourished me in times of great hunger.
So I did the proper thing as promised and planted a apple that came from her in the same spot she had grown.
When a sprout came up I named him, yes, him.. Daruka a name meaning tree. I don’t know how… I know that fact.
Maybe something from my past? Who knows.
In other news my painting skill has been getting higher.
My new sprout Daruka said humans would go to something called a Elixir store to find ways to get great amounts of energy.
So I went.
At first I thought it was that comfortable rocking chair!
Who can blame me? It was a really great chair. Plus I was in desperate need of sleep.
But later after talking to the cashier.
I learned it was something called invigoration potion she sold me two vials was all they had left.
First night was great! I painted and planted all night long.
Then felt the burn of tiredness later….
I am so glad I had two of them.
If only Life would mail me some of this stuff my goal will be met sooner!
Several days later I found two ‘Unknown seeds’ since my gardening skill was high enough I planted them.
As you can see my now three beautiful apples trees in the back. Lavern, Darkua, and Shirley. I wonder where I keep getting these names.
Years went by and something I should have calculated happened.
That very morning I was mad, no outraged with myself! 20 years and only 3,000 in the bank! How could I be so slow?
Later on in the day while fishing I got a call.
So I decided to hear her out.
Till she mentioned procreation. Then I lost it. I snapped.
“It’s ENOUGH that I am going threw this nightmare. I am NOT going to put a child threw this act of ‘Redemption’ as you call it.”
“Well Rosaline if it makes you feel any better this poor soul does need to be born-“
“What the hell are you Life the Grim Reaper?”
I got what I swear was a sarcastic response. But she sounded so serious.
“It’s bad enough you know my husband on first name bases. Keep him out of our deal.”
“You don’t have control over souls.”
“No I am not hearing of it. Goodbye Life. If that is your name.” I promptly hung up. I am not going a put a child threw this it’s selfish and stupid in my opinion.
A couple more years went by and I reached my $5,000 mark.
This was a cause for a celebration.
I am going to have a night and a day out on the town! I am going to have more fun then I ever had in twenty years.
To be continued…
Next up: A party!
