A Thousand Pieces of You

Margaret is the daughter of the scientists Henry Caine and Sophia Klankova. She has a sister named Josephine and two companion who are like her brother, Paul Makjov and Theo. Margaret went on a search for her father’s killer – Paul. Henry died and it seemed like Paul betrayed them, he messed up Henry’s brake and also their laboratory which slowed down their experiments and inventions. Henry and Sophia invented the firebird, a device (a necklace) that allows person to travel to different dimensions. There are many dimensions (as what they believed) that an individual exists.

The first dimension they landed, Margaret was staying with her Aunt Susannah since her family (Henry, Sophia and Josie) are already dead. In that life, the Margaret there wants to be a fashion designer. During that journey, she discovered Theo drinking green liquid and she assumed that he was doing drugs. They also caught Paul, who was with Wyatt Conley – the technology tycoon. He ws the one funding the firebird equipment. Paul and Theo fought because their agenda is to kill Paul for killing Henry, but Theo got on the train accidentally, leaving Paul and Margaret which gave Paul the chance to explain himself.

Their second dourney, Margaret was Grand Ducess Margarita and she has 3 siblings, Vladimir, Peter and Katya. And their father was the Tsar V., but she knows he’s not her father. Her mother, the queen, died after giving birth to Peter. She ha an affair with Henry in that life, he was the Royal Tutor. Theo is nowhere around the castle but Paul is Lieutenant Mankov, her personal Guard. During that life, she had sex with Paul, and that was when she was certain she love him. The problem was her firebird is broken and Paul’s superior / colonel confiscated his firebird, and Paul lost his memory (this is what happens when a person travels between dimensions). Margaret doesn’t lose her memory though because she was chosen by Wyatt and a device gave her that ability. She ended up making Proffessor Kaine fix the firebird. The Paul from Russa died from war and because the firebird was fixed, she leaped to another dimension.

On the 3rd dimension, she’s home but it’s different because her dad is alive, everything is normal and Paul simply blew up the lab, but she still has to work on something. Together with Theo, she went to the Trid building, she met Wyatt Conley and were headed to Lab II when Paul stopped her thru text. She went to Paul and he explained that Wyatt wants to control her because Paul, Theo, Henry and Sophia loved her, she’s someone he could use against them. Also, she’d be a good spy because she doesn’t forget things after leaping on a dimension.

On the 4th dimension, both her parents are oceanographer, and so was Paul. She and her sister Josie help around too. They are in a ship, then she heard her father humming the Beatles song and she realized that the band doesn’t exist in that dimension. She used the firebird to remind him and it really is him, Henry is alive!

Truth: When he came out of the university, a woman came and brought him to anotehr dimension, and it was Theo whoe messed up the breaks and framed Paul. Theo is a spy. They are on a submarine that time, Paul called and said he’s on his way when he mentioned that he drank green liquid to help him remember, that green liquid is what spies use and she remembered that she saw Theo drinking it. She fought Theo, left him in a submarine and snatched his firebird so she could go home and Henry too.

When she went home her mom and Josie were so happy because Henry is back and they knew the truth because Paul left them a letter. Theo was there too, the real one and not the spy. Their family was reunited. Theo somehow lost his chance with Margaret. Paul ended up pursuing Margaret. Happy Ending!

There was one night when the rain poured so hard, and i didn't want it to stop. Weird, because i was afraid and amused by the sound of the rain and thunder. The sound of it made me less alone that night. The next day i woke up to find my collection of journals soaked. I keep it near the window to make sure no one could read it. The writings can still be read but i was devastated by the damage. I wanted it preserved but i don't want it published. Still amused by the rain but afraid of the wrath it could bring to my journals, i created this blog.
