"I know who they are. They’re brother and sister, lost, no parents – Hansel and Gretel."
Bye Bye, Baby by Barbie Shoes
I wondered, briefly, if perhaps I was in hell. I had done horrible things in my life, so it wasn’t out of the question. To be forced to stay here, to watch, unable to speak, unable to touch, unable to comfort the people I loved certainly seemed a hellish fate. Then again, were I truly condemned, I would not be gazing upon the face of the woman I loved. Perhaps I was just here to wait for her. It was a heartbreaking thing to do, to wait patiently; though I hoped, for the sake of our children, that our reunion wouldn’t come too soon.
