When was the last time you where here? It must be going on six years now. You remember everything about that day; how lovely it was in the morning, how clear the skies and sea were, how much you had been looking foward to it.

"I don't want to play." you mutter, sitting down by the weeds. You think about how your family lost the yard in the first place, how uncle screwed you all over. And once again, you come to the conclusion that it is, ultimately, your fault. If you hadn't blabbed, uncle would never have gotten the idea, you're sure. Piet sits down next to you, putting his arm around your shoulder and again tries to tell you that it isn't your fault.
*** But the certainty will remain. ***
You pause to think. Your wife, husband, and children are free of the Shadow Ruby's curse now. Should you really still risk your life? Doesn't your family deserve that you abandon the battle to return to them? But you shake off these thoughts. Abandoning this fight would solve nothing. The red queen would just target your family again, and that time, she might just kill them. No. While you owe your family your save return, you also owe them to destroy this threat to their safety. Not to mention that the red queen is a threat to the church of Hielon, the nearby City of Bridges, Kyr, yes, to the whole world.
*** You re-enter the battle with new vigour. ***
Turning to think about your predicament, your mind wanders to the old legends. It is said that the shadow serpent has a weak spot somewhere on its body... but how would anyone know? There is only one shadow serpent isn't there? If there is more than one shadow serpent, have you tracked down the one that destroyed your village? Does it matter, even? Then you hear a rustling from behind you and from in front of you. Two shadow serpents are flanking you, one biting into your legs and the other into your upper body. You thankfully do not live long enough to feel getting torn in two by the monsters.
*** That answers a few questions. ***

Your thoughts quickly spiral into nothing more than wordless rage and frustration.
Groove Billygoat (2014)
The minute you turn your attention in meta-fashion to the inner workings of your thoughts, they seem to shut down and grind to a halt, almost as if the gears in your brain have some sort of performance anxiety. You avert your attention to yourself so that you won't think yourself mentally incapable and go off the rails somehow.
You haven't met anyone yet. But they are there. People with extra-EXTRA-curricular activities must be around.

Somehow, thinking just isn't accomplishing much.
A sudden thunderous noise outside draws my attention, just in time to see a giant lizard's face peering through the window, and then a hand smashes through the ceiling, a giant lizard hand (paw? I wonder), and it grabs me, and the lizard's mouth is open, rows of glistening, slimy teeth, and my body is rent, torn asunder, I feel my blood spattering around this beast's mouth... and then I feel no more.

Twilight in the Garden of Exile (2001)
You promptly run the recent memories through your mind: a hasty return from Sicily with the new play, your calling Sando, Ilya and Meredith, convincing them of the greatness of the act (you can be unnaturally persuasive at times), expounding for hours on what a hit it would make, ordering the arrangements - and collapsing from unbearable fatigue.
These are the thoughts Sando reads in your face. He smiles contentedly: "I am glad you remember it now. However, before we discuss the play itself, let me ask you a question: What is the real reason of your returning? Surely there must be more to that than just a new play - one of many you have written?"
Your face remains as calm and candid as ever: "My friend," you reply, "I am rather disappointed by your lack of faith in my new work's potential. I do believe that it is worth abandoning Sicily for."
Sando offers you a wise smile: "Far from challenging the notion, I cannot envision the possibility of your being unaware of the recent geopolitical developments in the region. Germany and Austria have voiced undisguised threats against our state; some even predict an invasion within days."
He is clearly beginning to suspect something, you realize; if so, your whole plan is under grave threat. Sando is not the one to fool with; it is time to divert his attention from the issue.
You yawn exaggeratedly: "As you know, politics fail to excite me the way they used to. These days, I am much more keen on art for art's sake."
The effect is all you could wish for: Sando's face goes red with rage. "I told you to quit yawning like that - " he growls.
