What Does It Matter?
Cyndi would often fantasize about emerging from her body as a butterfly with wings strong enough to glide on gentle breezes that would take her away from her life. Who could blame her? For with a father spending most of his time in a drunken stupor, and a mother blaming her for everything that had went wrong since her conception, there was not much incentive for Cyndi to stay grounded.
Cyndi would also fantasize about becoming a mermaid after diving deep enough in an ocean, but this was different—really different. For there she was suspended in the air without any discernible means of support while being pulled into a vertical wall of water. Questions started swirling in Cyndi’s mind.
“Is this real or imagined?”
“How could I be just floating in the air?”
“Is it actually air that I am suspended in?”
“What does it matter?”
“How is it possible for a vertical wall of water to exist?”
“Is it really water?”
“Again, what does it matter?”
“What will my life on the other side be like?”
“Will it be better or worse than what I’ve known?”
“Will there be life on the other side?”
“Yet again, what does it matter?”
