I thought I would get used to the bumpy roads leading to the City of Taragona eventually. I left the place eleven years ago and nothing seemed to change. The place was still the same, proudly showing off its rich fields. I guess it was meant to be that way. I, myself, wouldn’t want to see changes in that place. I guess I have this feeling of selfishness, making Taragona a place untouched. A place unlike the materialistic world I came from. I wouldn’t want to see it exploited by large malls, crowded restaurants and busy streets.
Even the townhouse my family owned stood the same, the way I left it. The balcony, which used to be my perch, overlooking the small lake, looked sturdy. I could clearly imagine myself eleven years ago walking back and forth talking to myself.
So, why did I come back to this old place— a place full of memories, the good and the bad alike? Probably to hurt myself more, to deepen the wound bestowed upon me by my own fate. But, then again, perhaps, it was the time and the place for healing—for silencing the long disturbed spirits.
I might have left the world behind but I knew deep down, I brought along the old me with my hibernation. It was through this that out of the cocoon I built for myself, rose a new me.
