Incredible story, beautifully written.

Thank you so much, Inês. ❤ I shall absolutely continue. :-) Indeed, things are picking up…

I’d like to think that the girl was never gone — she was always here, gaining strength and courage to show herself.

Well, she was never really gone, of course, just imprisoned. And maybe you’re right, maybe she was storing-up strength and courage to make her move. Which she did, finally, and thank god — because that saved her life.

Inês, thank you so much for writing.

P.S. Portugal is one of the few western European countries I’ve never made it to — and I want to! I am in Spain periodically, and I really need to the make time to head west…
