The world had changed over the last few months. It was no longer the world in which Emma had grown up. Instead, it was a world of immortals and gods running around pretending to humans. It was incredibly deceiving to the mortals they lived amongst, and Emma being half of each had begun to feel torn between the world she had grown up knowing and one she was now slowly being introduced to. She couldn't talk with her mother about any of this because she was absolutely certain her mom would think she was going crazy and try to take Emma to a psych ward or something. But the burden of this secret wasn't an easy one to hold because the weight of it all was beginning to take its toll. Even if Natalie had told Emma she could talk to her about these things it didn't always feel right. At least she had one mortal to talk to. And at least her father was no longer young-jackass. Both were improvements on her own stressful situation.
After class she found herself wandering. Usually she went to the market to buy fresh ingredients for dinner, but lately her mind had been wandering. She couldn't think a lot about normal things like class and books and papers. The guilt of how she had caused Manfred's heart attack (even if she hadn't been the real cause at all, she just felt it was her fault) was still fresh. It wasn't a wound that would heal easily or anytime soon. So it kept creeping up when she had time to think when she wasn't in class, which was a lot of the time. She really needed to enroll in more classes to keep herself busy.
She had gone to the market and purchased various items but she completely bypassed her apartment. She had gone the other direction and just walked. It was all she could right now because if she stopped it meant having to think about things, and she was tired of thinking. But when she did finally stop at an intersection and found she had walked much farther than she had intended she frowned. Looking around she found only one person nearby, which she thought was rather odd. She walked over to the man, offering a polite smile. She intended to figure out the best way to get back to her street without taking the subway. "Excuse me?"
