The gauntlet drops.

Today was not my day. Nothing seemed to go right. But the worst was waiting for me when I got home. Delivered today, to my home address, was another envelope. This one had scrawling, bearing much resemblance to the scratchy lettering of Essy’s darker moments. An homage perhaps?

Well, inside was exactly what I feared, and exactly what I needed for a new start: A polaroid photo taken of my son, today, leaving school, being picked up by my wife.

On the back of the polaroid was written:

This is the way your world will end: with a BANG.
-lots of love, Essy’s biggest fan.

Farewell Eridanos-land!  Time for me to disappear, again.  I have more important things to worry about now, more significant people to take care of. It was a blast, but I’d rather not end with a bang. And to you – you know who you are – lay one hand on them, and you’ll be feeding from a food nipple the rest of your life.

The rest of you – take care.
