Letter "W" - Wants

I remember hearing a song.  Robin Thicke, I think, was the name of the musician.  The lyrics blasted from a car parked near the cathedral.  One refrain stuck in my head.  "I want everything I can't have".

If I had to pick a theme song for my life as Abigail Bishop, that would be it.

I wanted love as a child.  I got...something else.
I wanted to die, to end it all.  I lived.
I wanted to be the best Cleanser I could be.  That meant I could not have love.  No attachments.  Love equaled attachments.  I found love with Basil.  Timing sucked since emotions that caused attachments were supposed to have been trained out of me.
Now I want to save Father Quanon.  But I'm not supposed to.  I shouldn't care.  But I do.  I want him alive.  And I want Drakar buried in the deepest pits of his own hell.  Yeah, that is what I want.****

Looks like Drakar struck a nerve with Abby.

    1. She's a tough one so I suppose we'll have to find out if she does...though it may take a bit before we know.

    1. Very true. And with what Abby wants done to Drakar, I wonder what she'll be motivated to do?

    1. Yeah, but she's got her heart set on one thing in particular. Drakar really pissed her off.

  7. She seems to be going through a range of emotions. Something she shouldn't have.

    1. So many things she's experienced...she's got a pool of emotions to pull from.

    1. Our Abby has been up and now she's down, only not really sad...just feeling vengeful with that last thing she wants.

  10. "I want everything I can't have". Great line, as is:
    I wanted love as a child. I got...something else.

    One of my favourites - because it's so important - is the Dylan song
    Hope to get to heaven before they close the door Great song but I think I've got the title slightly wrong

    1. Thank you, Mike, for checking it out. Some lines tend to grab a little more than others. I'll check out this Dylan song. I'm sure I can find it with what you've provided :-)

    1. Thanks, David. Yeah, I went in to change one thing then I ended up having to rearrange everything lol!! Glad the new look is working :-)

      Abby's a Cleanser now so making her angry is not a good idea :-)

    2. I too was very surprised by your layout rearrangement. I'm not sure how I feel about all the things on the top (your profile and followers) but I'm liking the one sidebar.

    3. I have to admit this is taking me a bit to get used to :-)

  15. I meant, "Go get him, Abby." Take Drakar down.

    1. Let it go her way, I have a feeling Drakar wouldn't have a clue what the light of day was if it spit on him.

  16. I guess it's pretty hard to train emotions out of anyone, even those destined to be Cleansers.

  17. I'm sure he deserves everything she thinks of him. I love how music can inspire!

  18. Abby doesn't have much time to act, considering there are only three more posts in the Challenge. Hopefully, she has something more than tattoos up her sleeve.

  19. Hmm, I wonder what will happen during the next few letters.
