2. How I began
Life in the beginning was good. Although Highland Gardens was a crooked and generally strange place, I seemed to fit right in. Children grew up with and around me as if we were brothers or sisters but there was always the reality, the reality that our temporary world would eventually be torn apart and we would all go our separate ways. That was exactly what happened. Exactly how life had begun for Almond Bloom. A lonely yet comforting life in the middle of ,what seemed like, nowhere.
In a nutshell, I guess you could say that's how my life began, from nowhere.
