Our Vacant Illusion
Kate's life has not been a great one, excruciating painful in fact, paired this with the recent diagnoses of her depression, her struggles in her past and her already broken self-image...she still somehow manages every day, to mutter up the strength, to put on a happy face. Nevertheless, strength doesn't last forever and hers well, it faded far sooner than she would have hoped, when something happened to the person she thought she would forever love. Something that breaks her past the point of which she cannot return unscathed by and be "normal" again; and something that contributes to her already drowning state. "Because being admitted means that you have to admit to yourself, that you're already broken." Meeting thus her downfall, she becomes a version she thought she would never be, and is pushed into a place that deep down, she always feared. Even so, perhaps there is still hope. Perhaps the rim of sunshine around the dark clouds surrounding her, is reachable. And maybe, just possibly, the stranger who's attempting to save her as much as he can, while still trying to save himself; will make the darkness go away? The question still stands, though...Will they be able to save each other? Or are they destined to be broken forever? It's all, still, but a vacant illusion.
