Secret Garden


#1

I remember coming into existence as a full grown woman, with no memory of a childhood or family. I lived in a strange garden surrounded by a tall stone wall. There was seemingly no way to escape this garden, for the only break in the wall had an enormous tree that completely blocked me in.

It was lonely but I decided at once to keep myself busy to block out the dark thoughts. I began by quickly making a kiln, firing up pottery, creating bellows and charcoal and learning to blacksmith. It took me nearly a lifetime to learn to make an axe and a shovel however finally I was able to clear the tree that had kept me prisoner for my entire life!

Dear reader, imagine the horror when I discovered the only fate that awaited me outside my walls was a poisonous snake poised to strike! I quickly threw down a log blocking the snake from entering what I thought was my prison but had actually been my Eden. I kept the fire going and died of old age with a banana in my hand.
