An Imperial Affliction

My name is Anna. I have cancer. But I'm okay, you don't have to worry about me. I'll be okay, because everyone dies someday. You should be worried about my tulip-obsessed mother and her strange companion, the Dutch Tulip Man who brings her tulips everyday. My life isn't what you would call normal, but it's good enough.

“What’s that?” I asked.
“Water,” the Dutchman said. “Well, and time.”
