When she finds her boyfriend shackled to a white metal table Ashley feared for the worse.On a small trip of dropping off a package for Jason’s father, the young couple never thought they would be running for their lives. Running away from supposedly friends whom in turned to be a family of harvesters.Human harvesters and they are looking for something specific. And Ashley just might be the perfect match for that something.
My friend back in July, while we were housesitting, asked me what my muse was. And me being me, couldn’t really think of anything once I was put into the spotlight. So I came up blank then spoke out the typical. Music, movies, books, the occasional person but nothing that really came from the heart.
Well in September a Facebook friend posted a fan art of Adventure Time as the Muses from Hercules and this brought forth that question my close friend asked in July. After those two clicked, I figured out what my muse is. Well, whom….
My Man is my Muse.
Not only is he the muse for my writing but he’s my power to want to do better in life. Before I met him I thought I knew where my life was going but in truth, I was living in a bubble. I thought I’d go to school, graduate, then find my perfect job and live happily ever after. Yeah, call me spoiled to think like that. But I was raised to think of school first, job later. However I now see that’s not the greatest way to go. I wish certain people would have enforced me to get a job when I was in high school cause at that time, I was home schooled. So I was completely free.
Now at age twenty, I feel lost. There’s things I want to do but those things cost money and finding a job is a bitch haha. But the one thing that Powers me through and has showed me what life really is, is My Man. My love and I want to save more now than ever so I can move our future forward. He’s my dream and I believe once I’m with him I’ll be able to do anything. He’s my strength and he makes me believe I can accomplish anything. Because of him I feel like I can Wonder Woman my way through things.
Right now I’m working on a Novelette (which he inspired) and I’m hoping that I’ll get it done and ready to publish by the end of this month. Helping me through this deadline is him. Thinking of him, of what this might bring for our futures, powers me. I’m not only doing this for me but for us. And I’m so grateful to finally feel alive because of this Man.
Sunday night driving home this song, Power by Kat Graham came on the radio and the words rang true for me. It showed me all that above and more. Because of him I want to work harder on my dreams so I can catch my latest dream….him.
