Chapter One | Chapter Seven
I stared at everything wide-eyed, feeling like an ignorant country girl instead of someone who had spent the last four years in one of the biggest cities in the world. It should have prepared me to the new sights here, but it hardly had. New York was so different. So much more… alive, in a way, I guessed. There was this genuine sense of antiquity as we drove through the curling street on the wrong side of the road (as far as I was concerned, at least). There were no skyscrapers or giant billboards or anything flashy of the sort; just rows and rows of ancient buildings that had been there for centuries. They made me feel so small in comparison, a sensation that New York City had often enhanced in me, but in a different way entirely. I felt like Dorothy when she first set foot in Munchkinland. I wanted to do it all now. I didn’t care exhaustion was beginning to sip in. I wanted to drop my stuff someplace and explore this amazing place.
