Lift the Carpet Part 2

Her eyes stood out as ghastly pinpoints of white in the deep black of her eye sockets. She must have been beautiful once. Now her face was deathly pale where the light from a nearby window struck her and went through her. The side in shadow faded to a skull, the structure of her cheekbones a mockery of what fragile flesh must have covered. Her right hand was lifted, the translucent fingers seeming to point downward at a spot on the floor.  My eyes traveled back to her face. Was that accusation I perceived? Pleading? What on God’s green earth would have prompted my normally jovial uncle to paint such a morbid fantasy of horror? I hesitated before turning the painting around. When I did, my heart sank and I physically felt ill.  “What I saw at Chateau Bernard, 1933.”

A life long aficionado of horror and fantasy , M. M. Smith began the chronicles of Boris and Patricia as stories shared around the dinner table. Her teen and college aged daughters wanted a different kind of vampire story, catering to their communal love of history and cultures. Eventually friends and classmates were listening too, and suggesting it all be written down in some sort of chronicle, so others might share in that which had delighted them so thoroughly. And so it began...

*******

M.M. Smith is a widow living in Northern California with her three daughters and The Stupid Cat.

Hi there, long time no see :)
Just want to tell that I came back from UK last week and can say I had a great time there and much fun and experiences from it. Had some problems which occurred but solved them fast and easily. :)
Was fun to live there at my own place and to manage to do some practice job at a store there, I now know what I have to do and how if I one day decide to live there permanently.
Also met my best friend and others there and went out and had much fun together, all from shopping to visiting an old castle, museums, her birthday party, going out to atomic burger and other fun places etc :)
But came to the conclusion: It would be fun and I could live there but it would be better for me in Sweden due I like working here slightly better and I realised the main reason I would want to live there is for my friends there but when they arent around or is away or isnt contactable and I´m alone it wouldnt be that great anymore there.
So yeah, learned a lot about living there and the pros and cons with it there and what fits me best and learned a lot about my friends there too so it was a rewarding trip and stay and gain much experience and a life goal done. :)

Is now preparing to move to my new flat in southern Sweden, will be a long way to drive, around 2-3 hours on the highway and I´m worried and nervous for it and almost ill feeling for it but looking forward to finally live somewhere else than in this part of Sweden I grew up in. I will miss having my few friends close and my dad and brother but as a lonewolf type I should be fine but the older I get the more social I seem to become :/
I hope the old flat renter wont charge me for poor cleaning or something like that, my flat is more clean now than when I moved in but they are picky so we´ll see.

Will on 1 of December start on my new job in Southern Sweden since like you said: I´m needed in Sweden with my life values and hard working soul, will be doing a similar job as before and have 6 months try period and after that is either hired completely or fired if I do poorly there. I will do my best and get motivated to start and be best there as well as I was on my last job :D Nervous and worried if I will manage to do a such good job again and be good enough but that is propbably me worrying, I will do my best and we´ll see how it goes :)






Another thing which drags me down and makes this worse:
as always when I travel home from a convention or especially from my best friend who is like a sister to me in my eyes I long back to being around there and think/wonders what is happening in their lifes, so called homesickness almost. Feels sad when not being able to be there or talk to her and others, until some weeks have passed, then it gets better.
To the thing:
In the past 2006-2010 my best friend were often online and talked often and was more social and online than I was back then, also very helpful and asked me for advices time to time. After she got together with her boyfriend who I´m a small time friend to she stopped to be much online or messaging me and with time getting less and less messages, communication slowing down. Instead of a week or so to hear something from her it now takes 2-3 months sometimes even 5 months but then she also apologizes for it xD I know she is studying as well today as back then and also havent much money over from rent since she moved to her boyfriend from her parents so text messages can only be done when its important or have money over.
She isnt online much anymore either and is compared to the past not the online type anymore.
But when she is online and we are on skype once an year like, then we have much fun and talk a lot and no doubt she likes me as a great friend and even more when I´m over there meeting her then she is almost all over me xD But yeah when we are together we have much fun and then she is much talking and trusting me and asking for advices even.
But now when I´m back in Sweden one dont hear much anymore nor is she updating me much about what is going on there so cant help when something happens. Is longing back and misses her much and that hurts, like last time I went there. Did get a text message some week ago after my army training where she asked if I´m okay after being back in Sweden and how my army training went, but after that nothing even after I messaged her on Facebook and such.
But oh well, learned in the past she isnt the type who replies fast anymore and is self absorbed and bad at communication, even her boyfriend sometimes can feel she is like a stranger at times when she goes into her own room and not saying hello after coming back from work and is bad at telling things and have to remind her to reply at times, taking for granted he and her friends is there even if she dont talk to them for ages. According to herself she have very few friends and is thankful to have me as one, like myself in many ways.
But she do know a lot of people and have easy time getting new ones but probably not at keeping them or get them to become close friends.
From how I know her she seems to have become less social and less online type after she got together and changed to become more self absorbed and less talk active to others and is more focused on talking to her boyfriend only and his family, but cant blame her for that and is happy she is happy with him and got the love she wanted :)

But I´m wondering now what to do since it only hurts myself when I long back or want to talk/hear from her and the truth is she wont be able to do that or isnt like that anymore?
Either if I should try to become my old self and be less social and be more the lonewolf I was and not thinking too much about my friends and focus on my life but will be there the day when she asks me.
Or just try to control myself and be how I´m now but it will be the hardest option since I miss her and controlling that will be hard.
Or if I should try to go on instead and forget her and see her as a normal friend instead who I dont need to talk to like a family member?
OR just call it a day and go on in my life and realise she dont need me in her life as before and I´m just a contact friend?
Or something else or go on like today? :/


What is your advice on this and maybe you have a experience like this?
