The realtor’s heels clicked across the rich oak floorboards, “Nobody’s been in this house for years, you sure you want it?” she asks as she turns back to face her buyer. The young man doesn't answer and instead walks over to an object hidden with a sheet and throws it off, it’s a piano and the realtor can see it has had better years. She suppresses a cough from the dust that blew up with the cover and impatiently checks her phone. “Shit” she mutters quietly under her breath, its her son’s school trying to get ahold of her and it’s the 3rd time that week. Since the divorce this past summer, he had been getting into more trouble at school. Her therapist told her it was a way of acting out and she wished again for the thousandth time there was just an easy fix. She didn’t regret the divorce-in fact in made her feel lighter, freer more like herself-but it also came with baggage she didn’t necessarily have the time to deal with. She sighs and then tells the buyer she has an important call to take outside. The buyer gives a nod and finally speaks, “I’ll just take a look around myself.” She gives one last glance at him and offers what she hopes is an encouraging smile, “Let me know if you want to write an offer!”
Maiden Queen of the Sky
Whether you chose to believe in them or not, astrological signs (and the personalities associated with them) have interested people for many years. No one knows the exact origin of the Zodiac signs but the modern Zodiac sign as we know it was thought to have been adopted by the ancient Greek from the Babylonians. This practice of astrology is not technically considered a science anymore but many still believe in it as if it were. There are 12 different signs, each different from the one before, and yet somehow they make up the whole of the human race. According to Greek legend the Myth of the Virgo Maiden is this, she was the daughter of Zeus and Themis and personified innocence, purity, and justice and was the last immortal to live on the earth. She ended up in the stars because she fled earth after becoming disgusted by human greed and brutality and there she remains today.
