How to Disappear Completely
I'm standing in the shadow of the most staggeringly imposing building I've ever seen. I have to crane my neck painfully to see the grotesque, stone-carved gargoyle faces adorning the walls, the tops of the imposing gothic spires stretching skywards above me. The castle is an awe-inspiring, commanding presence - and I live a stone's throw away! I'm in a new city, on the cusp of a new life, alight with possibility. Tomorrow is my first day of school. The weight of expectation on my shoulders feels heavy, but I can bear it - I can bear anything. I'm a Bright Young Thing, ready to take on the world and win.
