It was spring time when Gerda last saw Kai.
“You were my fairy-tale ending.”
His mocking laughter descended upon her heart like countless icicles, shattering all her childhood dreams.
“My silly Gerda, did you really think I became this way because some stupid splinters from a troll mirror got into my heart?”
On the first day of autumn, with a suitcase in her hand, Gerda stopped half way across the bridge. Copenhagen lights blinked in the distance, offering a farewell and the ice around her heart finally started to melt.
Sometimes it is best to walk away. Before the winter comes.
This week’s journey took me to the magical land of Hans Christian Andersen and his fairy-tale The Snow Queen, one of my favorite childhood stories.
