“What fortune will going East bring?” Julia asked. “Sweet fuck all…”
Julia was done with all of this self-actualisation bullshit. I’m even less ready now than I have ever been.
“East,” the wind spoke up.
“Really?” Julia shouted. “You can shove—”
The wind surged, and the trees leaned away from the source. High winds rarely scared her; however, it gained the power of a gale, forcing Julia to grab onto a trunk to keep herself from getting blown away.
“Fine!” Julia yelled, her voice like a whisper in a storm.
In an instant, the forest returned to normal as though nothing had happened. That last part was a sobering element to take in.
“Dick,” Julia swore, before heading on East.
