“You have to go back.”
“That’s unacceptable. We’re supposed to move forwards not backwards. Why would you say that to me ?”
“Sonny.. calm down. I already talked to the ‘Babbas’. giggle – I can’t believe they let you call them that.. favored child. You have to go back to your people. You have to go home.”
“‘With all respect sexy, you guys don’t understand. That’s a healing place. If you stay too long you’ll get sick.”
“Darling.. it’s you who doesn’t see. That’s why you have to go.”
Ok ‘nica.. cryptic much? They didn’t understand. You’re supposed to heal and leave. Check out of the game and then back in. If you stay too long you’ll wallow. And then your brain will die and your game will be over. But there’s a hard lesson here. They called me forward by name and it was personal. I just didn’t know what it was.
“D, I’m with ‘nica, she has a sister what’s your astro stuff?”
“Sonny.. What’s the rule?”
“You know the rules.. no information before pictures”
“It’s cool man. I showed them lot’s of pictures of you”
DA was fun and you can’t replace a best friend. But there’s no way I could believe that my dreams would be put on hold for these idiots. It just didn’t seem fair. Fun.. sure but I was already getting heat for not doing any work and now I was supposed to get amped about helping a world I really didn’t care about.
“What’s Sonny doing here? He’s going to get killed.”
“I don’t think so..”
“Are you joking? He teaches the children. These fighters are going to finally break his arrogant ass.”
“I don’t think so..”
“He’s always smiling.. doesn’t give a shit about anything and seriously.. his colors are fucking pink & green”
“You’re wrong and you shouldn’t talk about one of our brothers like that. Sonny doesn’t teach The Children. Master put him to train little MT, Sean’s little girl, Cliff’s boy.. Sonny teaches Our Children.”
So I guess there’s a place for all of us somewhere.. sometime. And I do understand how lucky I am to have people looking out for me. And perhaps.. with a bit of help – you can do both.. heal & keep your spirit alive.
