Last night the air felt so crisp I donned a pair of fuzzy socks and closed a few windows. Not all of them, but just the ones on the west side of the house where the cool air was sneaking inside.

But even after taking on a witch in a gingerbread house, bloodthirsty actors, and a whole mess of magic hunters and other fairytale shenanigans, the biggest, most pressing question pulsing through my brain as my fingers started to slip and my enemy bore down on me was this:
Could I really trust the person whose life I’d ruined to keep me from falling?
With antagonists closing in, inner demons threatening to consume me, and vivid nightmares chewing up my soul every time I shut my eyes, I was running out of options.
I knew the moment to decide whether or not I could truly trust any of my friends was fast approaching. But my head and heart were stuck.
