Fate and Ninjas

We used to talk about fate – the cruelty it weilds.  We discussed all sports of ways to destroy fate from ninja moves to rocket launchers.  For some reason it just occurred to me the joke was in us.  Ironically, fate destroyed us. 

Years ago I received a text message from you like the one I got today.  I remember I had just arrived at work, the sun was rising over the lake, and I get likes the most special person in the world.   But today I just wondered why you were texting me.

It will sound childish but… You were once my ninja.  I believed you’d save me from anything and everything.  We talked about ninjas destroying fate and I was young and naive enough to believe you would destroy the awful things fate had planned against me. 

But fate won.
