Friday Fiction: Waking Up

Ambition is a slippery thing, particularly when you’re a young child. Do you aspire to win gold at the Olympics or is it your parent/guardian telling you you do? Are you the one who wants to go to the Royal Ballet School or is it the dream of someone else and you’re living it for them? Are you doing the training because that’s what you want to do or because you’ve been threatened with punishment if you don’t?And what happens when you achieve your goal only to realise it was never your goal in the first place?

It’s that last question that was the starting point for this story.
