Kali, what is your one greatest fear?
A lot of things frighten me these days. It’s hard to choose just one. Ordinarily I don’t waste energy being afraid of things I can’t change… but I am not sure anymore what is within my power and what isn’t.
I’m afraid of Estebahn. I’ve never met anyone so far removed from what is good or right. Sometimes I’m afraid of Jesse.
Life has never been normal before, but at least it was easier to pretend it was before I came here. I’m afraid life could get even harder. I’m afraid of losing my skin again, or even worse.
But I guess the one greatest fear is that I’m wrong. Wrong about Jesse, wrong in my decision to help him. I mean, the stakes are pretty high. Most of all, though, what if I’m wrong about myself?
