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.

Lovely blog. great way to use the word (W).

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Maybe she'll finally get what she wants!

Angela Brown said...

Thank you so much. :-)

Angela Brown said...

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.

Raelyn Barclay said...

I want everything I can't have...wow, I think we can all relate to that at one time or other. Awesome Angela!

Angela Cothran said...

Wants are a powerful motivating force! I love it :) Well done.

Angela Brown said...

Thanks, Raelyn. I know I can relate to it more times than I've cared lol!!!

Angela Brown said...

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

Nancy Stewart said...

Wonderful post, and your blog is terrific too. So glad I stopped by!

Thanks for sharing!

Miranda Hardy said...

Sounds like Abby wants A lot of things. Lol

Clarissa Draper said...

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

Laura Marcella said...

Hello, Angela! This is such a great theme for the Challenge. I'll have to check out your earlier posts!!

Have a lovely week and happy A to Z!

Susanna Leonard Hill said...

I'll say! Poor Abby!

Mike Keyton said...

"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

Whoa! Your page changed. Looking good!

Remind me not to get on Abby's bad side. :)

Donna K. Weaver said...

Nice. The more I hear about your story, the more I want to read it.

Amy Saia said...

Abby's had it! I like all your character's names, btw.

Leslie Rose said...

Got get him, Abby.

Leslie Rose said...

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

Angela Brown said...

Thank you for stopping by. I would gladly hop on over to your blog. :-)

Angela Brown said...

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

Angela Brown said...

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

Angela Brown said...

Happy A to Z-ing to you as well. So glad you enjoyed the post :-)

Angela Brown said...

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

Angela Brown said...

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 :-)

Angela Brown said...

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 :-)

Angela Brown said...

Cool, Donna. I can't wait to finish this story and get it out for everyone to read.

Angela Brown said...

Thanks, Amy. You're right. Abby's reached her breaking point.

Angela Brown said...

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.

Brooke R. Busse said...

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.

Angela Brown said...

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

Patricia Stoltey said...

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

Shockgrubz said...

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

Susan Oloier said...

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.

Shelley Munro said...

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