1. PROLOGUE

Milo:
Beginning to read a book from the middle. Starting a t.v. show half-season. Turning up to a movie post intermission.
All those metaphors fell short in explaining how he felt. How bewildered and utterly clueless he was.
It was more like trying to understand a complex mathematical theory mid-lecture, attempting to write a detailed essay explaining explaining the plot of Jupiter's Ascending.
He stood in front of two iron gates with the words written across them;
Nirvana
Escape the world. Forget it all and begin your journey to a fresh new start.

A fresh new start.
The words rang in his head. They were intended to be promising. To, perhaps, provide a glint of fleeting hope to an angsty teen, depressed housewife, or a suicidal divorcee.
A fresh new start.
What start. What start when he didn't even remember having an ending.
Forget it all.
Forget what. Forget what when he couldn't remember anything in the first place.


Phoenix:
When only one more drop of water is needed for the glass to overflow. One more breath of air to burst the balloon. One last question of the test that determines your passing or failure.
These examples couldn't do her current situation justice.
It was more like another misstep, and the war of the worlds would be lost.
She stood facing two iron gates with the words written across them in gold;
Nirvana
Escape the world. Forget it all and begin your journey to a fresh new start.

A fresh new start.
She played the words over and over in her head. Trying with all her might to believe in the promise they held within them. To open her mind, even if just a little, and let in hope, even if a mere streak.
A fresh new start.
How. How to start again when her mind was buzzing full of previous chaos and turmoil.
Forget it all.
How. How to forget when the ghosts from her past were constantly scraping out every reason of her existence, scorching the flesh of her brain, eating up every one of her cheerful memory, slowly.
Slowly, but surely.
