I am reviving this story….I originally shied away from this because I was sensitive and I took it to heart that only one sentence was focused on!  It was part of the prompts…Anyway, fast forward to three years later…I think I am ready to quit being so silly and sensitive and, just finish this dang story already!



Here are the links for the previous stories:

Part I

Part II

Part III

Part IV

Part V



Part VI:  Meanwhile in Purgatory…


“We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle.”

~~Marilyn Monroe

We are either stars
Or we’re star dust
We can either twinkle
Or we can just bust

The choice is always ours



Purgatory is not a horrid place like everyone thinks.  Well, I mean it’s not a hellish looking place.  Though I will tell you this much:  Purgatory is always in the starkness of winter.  It never gets tepid, or a room temperature feeling.  It’s always freezing.  Even someone like me can feel how frigid it is here.  But we’re not talking about Purgatory; we’re talking about something much more sinister.

The dragons, dinosaurs, and leviathan pale in comparison to my father–who cast a curse on me in order to keep me away from Cody.  I’m not here to ask for my fathers’ forgiveness.  I am here to see if I can call a truce.  Cody and I deserve to be happy.  After all, like Marilyn Monroe once said, “We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle.”



To Be Continued…



PS.  This is all I got.  If I delay any longer, I’m afraid I’ll miss the deadline!

  1. Oooh! FIRST? 😉

    Purgatory sounds a bit like…. MARS!!! And Father sounds a bit like…. ME?? No just kidding. I’m not that mean, am I, haha? Here is hoping that the balance is restored and happiness prevails!

    1. Hi Marvin! It’s cool! I originally set it to where I have to approve it only because I was getting spammed constantly on here!

      Thanks for the points!

      Yes, her father is a bit harsh! I’m working on something…I just don’t know what yet! And you? Harsh? I don’t believe it! You seem like a very nice Martian! 🙂



  2. First? I love when that happens! 🙂 Thought I left a comment but things glitched.

    Oh my! Purgatory sounds a bit like…. MARS! And Father sounds a bit like….. MARVIN? No just kidding, I wouldn’t be so mean to deny someone happiness. Here is hoping that love prevails.
