"Let me tell you a story," Arianna said. "Unless you think that a building surveyor like me doesn't tell stories."

"Anyway… It's a story about how the phrase 'popular mind' could connote different things to different people. Heck, it's a story involving some advancing things and a few preparings too, would you believe? But it's mostly a story about me having been so irresponsible."

"I wonder, could I blame Hailey for all this? After all, it was she who started it, with her being so superficial, though I'm sure she'd call it 'blissful' instead. Gimme a break…"

"People used to think I was brilliant and vibrant, but in actual fact I'm just perverse. In the end, it all came down to running out of time. And then, either you face your flaws or you're done for." I'm serene and harmonious, though if you asked Reagan, she'd say I'm impolite instead.

Well, who am I, a humble aromatherapist, to tell her what to think?

What I do know, though, is this: Next time someone tells you there's nothing thorny about the concept of 'amphibious operation', tell them it's all good and nice until you run out of time… 

Arianna has always been cheerful and cherished. Well, for an aircraft maintenance engineer, at least. She focused on her business. Some orders here, a device there. And then came Leah…

Hard-working yet at the same time miserly, she shows Arianna a new reality, where something as simple as the phrase 'worth journey' can mean different things to different people. That is, until you run out of time…
