[NO NO NO NO]! she howled into a well of infinity, screaming as loud as she could at the top of her thoughts.
She was transported back to the moment she’d been hit by the Fuckrising, when she’d been first divorced from her cheerleader body, the juncture in existence when she’d chosen to forget her true nature. When she’d forgotten that she’d chosen everything she was going to experience.
[NO NO NO NO!] She refused to embrace the things she’d been, the thing she was now, and the thing she’d become. It was too damn much; all she wanted to do was have everything go back to the way it had been.
And existence, in its infinite mercy, obeyed her request.
