hope can be such a fickle thing

ive lived my life without it for years and it chooses now of all times to barrel its way back in
but none of that makes it fit in the environment
its only like an ice cube trying to enjoy a summers day

even when im staring at it in front of me i cant seem to conquer the idea that it isnt mine
that im not the one who gets a happy ending its only being borrowed from someone else
another me from another timeline who things progressed more happily for
another me who could look at this and actually feel like shes earned it

i dont know what to do with this feeling
except to know its made a fool of me

[AREN'T YOU A LITTLE YOUNG TO BE - wait no he has no idea how her species ages. or how old she is. so maybe she's not :| and anyway he has no reason to believe anything will come out of that egg but a single baby troll, so. No other immediate concerns.]

I suppose some congratulations are in order. May I ask who's the father?

Oh! Sorry, sorry. Shouldn't have assumed.

... That does raise a few questions, admittedly, but somehow I get the feeling they aren't ones I need the answers to.

[I mean he is curious but that'd probably be crossing several lines.]

[Well hey if she's comfortable talking about it... He just really likes learning about aliens, ok. Honestly, he's met species with weirder reproductive cycles. And possibly witnessed them. Some things cannot be unseen.]

Fascinating. What are the larvae like? Do the mother grubs rear them, or do you do that yourselves?

Huh. I know there've been cases where a human was raised by animals, as well, but it's never turned out very well for them. Although here, that situation tends to include total isolation from other humans - I assume that's not the case for trolls. I mean, in particular, you're better socialized than most humans I've met.
