20. I have no more tears to cry. My heart has turned into stone.

Dec 2020

So... if someone is SO selfish that they can't care enough about themselves or their loved ones... then I don't care either. She knew the risks, and decided to roll-the-dice anyway. She's getting EXACTLY what she bargained for. In exchange for her "freedom" and "liberty" and a good-time-on-the-town... she receives sickness and grief. Feh! Too fucking bad. Hard lessons learned, eh?

I hope they are able to tell their sad sad stories... maybe someone else will learn from the mistakes of others.
