"Mary, I've never done, nor considered any of those things..."

She frowned, a bit confused. "Why not?"

She back tracked. "Well, I've been ice skating. But Mary, I think you forget that I grew up with nothing. I lived in a tiny little cabin in the woods with my grandfather. And now I have a daughter and a husband. I can't go... flooding off to.... water.. zip-line?"

She shrugged. "None of those things are really dangerous- and if something happened, we always have magic as a backup."

"Time to do those things-- and money to do those things-- isn't readily available to me, Mary." She frowned. "I'm not a daredevil. I have a family to take care of."

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She gave a small nod of understanding- but her plan to cheer herself up had backfired. Maybe she could finally take skydiving off her bucket list later this week....

She took a sip of her tea, a bit insulted that Mary thought she should be doing-- and wanting to do-- these kinds of things.

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
A wave of sadness washed over her. She missed Teresa... she would still be willing to do any and all of those things if it meant cheering her sister up. She took another sip of tea, firmly pushing the sad thoughts away.

An awkward silence consumed her. She'd never felt so judged... and by Mary no less.

"If those things don't interest you, they don't interest you," she said with a small shrug. "But I really love doing all those things."

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
"I remember the first time Teresa took me ziplining," she said. "I was so weak from illness it was a difficult trek up the hill. But they got us both strapped in tight, and when we took off... it was the most amazing feeling. Like as long as I was up there feeling nothing but the wind blowing my hair back and the sun on my face and I could just keep flying, I would... never fall down."

"Was that even safe?" she asked, a bit scandalized. "You were ill, Mary!"

She nodded. "I had just been released from the hospital. Believe me, the trek up the hill was a whole lot worse than actually ziplining."

"Still..." she nearly asked what her parents had thought, before biting back that comment.

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
"They didn't care," Mary said in response to her silent question. "My parents didn't take care of me when I was sick. Teresa did. She took it upon herself to grow up fast- she was only eight or nine- and take care of me because our parents weren't. And I was too sick to realize any of it until years later."

Maybe it would help to say it out loud.... "I miss her, Hope," she murmured.

She stood up from her chair and moved toward Mary, embracing her.

Her eyes watered, but she didn't want to cry. She just wanted to go snowboarding or ziplining and have someone with her... and that had always been Teresa. She supposed she would just have to go alone now. She embraced Hope for a moment or two, giving herself a minute to let the moisture in her eyes vanish, then pulled away.

"It's a slippery slope, Hope. I start thinking about missing her, then I start thinking about everything else. And that usually ends with a massive headache."

-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:51, August 26, 2015 (UTC)~

"I said it was okay to miss her, Mary... it's when you start... wishing she was back, and wishing things back to the way they were, instead of moving forward that's the problem."



MaryWaters

She shook her head. "It's not even when I wish for her to come back. It's when I start trying to figure out where she might be now, even just praying that she's safe- that's when the headache starts."

"What is it that you can't let go of, Mary?" she asked gently. "Why can't you just... let her be gone?"



MaryWaters

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
Her eyes filled with tears. "Because she wouldn't do this to me. Teresa gave up a lot to take care of a sick sister at such a young age, not to mention all the good things she's done for other people. She knows how much I depend on her, not to mention her husband and her daughter. Right before she disappeared, she was still the same kind and loving and caring sister I've always known. She wasn't a saint, but she has always been there for the people she loves- and she was surrounded by love in return. And no one gives all that up at the drop of a hat." Her head had started to ache, but she didn't care.

"Maybe you didn't know your sister as well as you thought you did, Mary?" she suggested hesitantly. "I don't know... people change.... but... the longer you hold onto those thoughts, the longer you're going to keep yourself stuck, Mary."

~“I miss the person I used to be.”
She looked at her for a long moment. "Hope... I'm really trying not to be stuck. And I'm trying to bring joy back into my life. But the fact is, Teresa has always been a huge part of that joy. And believing that she'll never come back... it's...." She started to cry, cursing herself. "I just want to be happy again- with or without her. But believing that she's gone for good, or that she's d-dead... it tears me apart even more than believing that she has to come back someday."

She couldn't help but feel a bit bad for Mary. She'd heard stories of crazy old cat ladies, with no friends but the animals in their homes..... was that where Mary was headed?
