“You’re moving forwards now, kiddo!” Her agent told her, “I said we’d get there!”

“What happens now?” She asked, eyes intense with expectation.

“We continue moving on. YOU continue moving on. Leave your old life behind, and watch the opportunities knock!”

“Leave my…? What about my friends, my family?”

“They’ll be OK. They’ll be happy for you. Don’t let them hold you back.”

“But…” She thought, “They’ve always been there for me.”

“You have to make hard choices sometimes, kiddo.”
