Disregard

Don’t ever take a fence down until you know the reason it was put up. -G. K. Chesterton

Mary knew why it was in place even if no one else did. Her ‘brother’ certainly didn’t know why it was there. He didn’t bother to ask when he put his plans into action to get her to remove it.

She’d like to think that he wouldn’t have done so if he’d known what consequences its destruction would bring.

“Neil, you won’t like what happens should you see this through.”

He’d sneered at her and ignored her wishes, as usual.

He wouldn’t be able to ignore the outcome, no matter how hardheaded he could be.

This also another piece of my Former Guardian timeline that I’ve been slowly working on, but haven’t posted for in recent posts.

Too Late – Day Twenty-Four

The walls came down, down, down
All over town.
There were cries to stop, stop, stop
But no one ever would drop.
 
There was never an end,
Everyone was around the bend.
And though I would try my best,
In the end, I too went West.
 
For this country that once was mine
Now is only thine;
For we did not appreciate
What we had, until too late.
