Sidnye (Queen of the Universe) — Book 2 — La'aryylia


(Go to Book 1 instead…)

People are afraid of what they don't know, Sidnye thought. But once you know what it is you're afraid of, you can trade in the fear for detachment. Like when you're facing the unknown, you have to worry about what it is because there's an obligation to try to figure out how to fight it.

Once you know what it is, you can decide you don't have to fight it. Because you know you're going to lose anyway.

The only thing being scared was good for was giving up. When Emmet said it, Sidnye hadn't realized how right he was.

She'd been afraid before. She was numb now.

Numb was better…

It's one thing to talk about your world falling apart, as you're hit with headaches and dreams that let you see things happen before they happen. It's another thing when your world falls apart for real, because your school is attacked by alien bugs and you have to escape in a starship after your dog that you thought was dead saves your life.

It's easy to feel the fear that comes from being dragged away from everything that used to be part of your life.

It's easy to feel angry when you're told you're not going back to that life, but no one will tell you why.

It's easy to feel the fear and the anger turn to something so much worse when you realize that everything you thought you understood about your life is a lie…
