  • Two pieces of a soul. With the same determination so many years later - to make our own way, to have our own identity, to wear red instead of matching blue. The chin pushed out in defiance, or the hat crooked and covering an eye. A reminder that you made her fall, she still has the scar to prove it. Just so I could win the race, win that dollar. Why, she wonders, could you not just wear the blue dress, let us finish the race at the same time, instead of leaving me with this scar?
