Yes. That is right. Fairytale was never meant to become true.

I still remember the story my ma used to read out loud to me. I dreamed of my prince charming. I dreamed of something peculiar happening in my bovine life. I would travel the world with my imaginary friend. We would jump from sofa to sofa. The floor was lava that we had to escape. A small box became a castle in our imagination and in the dark night, I made a vow. That I would never forget you and that I will always be by your side. As time passed and as I aged. I learned. My Prince Charming would never come. Life was cruel and malicious. Everybody was a bystander next to power. The floors were no longer lava but life became a living hell. Boxes were recycled and nothing lasted forever. When death took away my mother I learned. Happy ever afters never existed. Even now, my imaginary friend as you see, you were never there when I needed you. As red lines appeared on my wrist, every time a bruise was formed on my body, you, my friend stood there. As hundreds of words broke me down I kept on mending myself until I found out it was no use. I believed in fairy tales until I learned reality.
