♥ Lucia ♥

"She did not mind her days alone, away from the eyes outside. It was better this way, her secret stories hidden so no one could touch them, take them. Her sisters listened, rapt, but did not try to take. They cared more for the eyes and the ears; they seemed to want to collect these like charms to wear around their necks, the eyes and ears and the mouths whispering - beautiful, beautiful, why did it matter she wondered. She was free, still, like a child. The way it is before you are seen and then after that you can never remember who you are unless someone else show it to you."
