Gleefully, I crashed raucously through the pain, shouting and laughing and joyous, because the pain was huge and tiny and it roared its desperate anguish into the air like a fire in the forest and it wept its sadness into every dried river bed.
But it dared not stop me.
And the thin notes of a failing heartbeat became the crescendo of an orchestra as I stormed through blackness like lightning, bladed and afire, and I beat on the world like thunder and with tears and anger and love I forced open my eyes and flooded my heart with life.

    This is a terrific quintet of drabbles from Anna Cody’s pov Drew. I guess pain is the true realisation of life, if that doesn’t sound too corny. Had to remind myself of where we’d got to (making me very guilty for my recent neglect of Fedelta... but work, family stuff and holiday somehow got in the way.)
