I have many alter egos

 

I know, deep down, that they are all just parts of me. Divided up into neat sections

 

I keep them stacked in my mind on grand oak bookshelves, ready to be picked out when the time feels right

 

lady lustrous bitch. I think that I like her a lot

 

She is the kind of girl you read about in books

 

Don’t get me wrong, she is never the main character

 

No

 

We don’t want anyone thinking we’re just trying to be “politically correct”

 

God no.

 

She will die a noble and tragic death in the second chapter of the third book

 

She is the kind of girl that is undeniable loyal

 

The girl who always speaks her mind and never ever lies

 

When a group of boys shout indecent things about all the stuff they’d like to do to her body and how badly they want it 

 

She hits back with a witty one-liner and blows them a kiss

 

She walks away as if the ground worships her feet. And maybe it does 

 

She is the kind of girl that swear too much 

 

And when told that it is not ladylike she shrugs and say “I guess I’m just not a lady” 

 

When a man walks straight towards her, expecting her to dart out of his way she stops walking 

 

She stands, hard as stone and stares him directly in the eye 

 

She dares him to keep walking straight 

 

Although she has steel knuckles and unlocked lips she is not made of steel

 

Her heart is not made of nails 

 

Her words can be soft and kind 

 

She is decent and she is warm

 

She is the kind of girl that answers the phone even when she’s tired and moody

 

She will make you tea and sit you down and tell you stories about far away places so you can forget about all of your worries 

 

She is the kind of girl that listens 

 

The kind of girl that makes you laugh and then tucks you into bed and kisses your cheek 

 

She will sit beside your bed and wait for you to fall asleep just so you always know that you are never alone 

 

I love her because she is loyal and truthful and unapologetic

 

I love her because she has learnt to smile when people call her a bitch.

 

Lady lustrous bitch, you wonderful whirlwind.
