There I was raising the greatest monument to Love this side of the Seine. And there she was, moving like the wind through a mountain range. 

I could really feel it now and before it got too obvious, I spun on my heels and tried my best to dance some distance away from her so I could calm down. 

But there she was, following me!

She must have thought it was part of the dance because she shadowed my every step, even if I was waddling away like a duck with an erection.

It was cruel, in a way. The relentlessness of it all.

Quickly, think of something unexciting.

Interest rates. 

Yes.

House prices.

Better.

The relationship between interest rates and house prices during periods of fiscal inflation. 

Ok. 

Houston, we have touch down.

I turned around, sweating from the eternal battle between mind and body.  And there she was, again, still, smiling. 

"Hey, I'm Cassie" 

"Oh, hi. I'm Tim"

I found out that she was part of a ballet troupe here in Ostrava, part of the theatre, actually. She had been out here for the better part of four years but the way she spoke made it seem like she left England yesterday.

      @lucjah it was a traumatising experience, though.

    Dude finally! You had a drought of writing the past like half dozen. They all felt dead and like nothing was happening. But here you finally returned back to having something.

    I don't mean the above as an insult. I mean it as a way to pump you up at the same time giving you feedback on what I think makes your writing lively.

      @abrahamKim haha, thanks. But what did you mean by this:
      "You had a drought of writing the past like half dozen" - I didn't quite understand.

      Yeah, I agree. The story is picking up now and am getting into a flow.

      @timsubiaco

      Drought meant you were writing words but those words had no affect on me the reader. IT was as you were simply clinically describing happenings rather than story telling.

      So like the difference would be:

      CLINICAL: a description of symptoms and whatnot of someone with AIDS on web MD

      vs

      STORTYTELLING: following the trials and tribulations of someone suffering from AIDS and how they deal with it through making amends with family and turning to God
