Happy endings

I have a passion for them. I need them; I don’t enjoy stories without them and I don’t like to write such stories. I have to wrap everything up nicely; even after terrible things happen, life must go on, and characters must be okay with that. Uplift is what I seek in the end.

Life, however, isn’t like that. Sometimes it’s not okay, never will be okay again.

Maybe that wasn’t enough.
