I’ve always wanted to escape. To go to a world where I could be more than some strange Asian girl in the corner of a room. Maybe a world where I wasn’t the only Asian who wasn’t normal. Maybe a world where others shared my interests. Maybe a world where I was accepted.
That’s what Marcy did. She found another world to be with her friends so they could go on adventures together forever. I would have done the same if I had that chance. Because any other world and life seemed better than the one I was currently living in.
But just like Marcy’s adventure, all of that would have come to an end. Because life has chapters and arcs where you develop and grow. And that’s hard. Growing up isn’t easy but we all have to do it. I think that’s what the adventure is even if it’s not in a different world.
