Catherine Reconsidering Her Destiny

No matter where I go, or how hard I try to please my mistresses, Destiny always finds me. She flies in, tears up the house, leaves everything in pieces, and then I have to leave.

Now I work for a lady who asks me to climb a mountain every morning to make an offering to her Destiny. 

Perhaps it is time I stopped running from my own.
