Prologue

Crystal Ball

Crystal Ball: Pink

Drinking wine and thinking bliss, is on the other side of this
I just need a compass and a willing accomplice
All my doubts that fill my head are skidding up and down again
Up and down and round again, down and up and round again.

Oh, I've had my chances and I've taken them all.
Just to end up right back here on the floor.
To end up right back here in on the floor.

Pennies in a well, a million dollars in the fountain of a hotel
Fortune teller that says maybe you will go to hell
But I'm not scared at all...hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm
The cracks in the crystal, the cracks in the crystal ball

Sometimes you think everything is wrapped inside a diamond ring
Love just needs a witness and a little forgivness
And a halo of patience and a less sporadic pace and
I'm learning to be brave in my beautiful mistakes

Oh I've felt that fire and I've been burned
But I wouldn't trade the pain for what I've learned
I wouldn't trade the pain for what I've learned

Pennies in a well, a million dollars in the fountain of a hotel
Fortune teller that says maybe you will go to hell
But I'm not scared at all...hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm
Of the cracks in the crystal, the cracks in the crystal ball

Irony, irony, this hate and love, hate and love
What it does to me, what it's done to me
What is done...done

Pennies in a well, a million dollars in the fountain of a hotel
Broken mirrors and a black cats cold stare,
Walk under ladders on my way to hell, I'll meet you there
But I'm not scared at all, hmm...I'm not scared at all
'Bout the cracks in the crystal, the cracks in the crystal ball

Divorce……the single word I thought I would never hear, much less actually be doing. But here I sit after signing the last papers making it official. Isabella Marie Swan is not a quitter but I feel like that is exactly what I am doing quitting; it seems I am doing a lot of that lately.

My life before marriage was so much simpler, I was a free spirit, I loved just living from weekend to weekend, just driving from town to town, from rodeo to rodeo, yup that is right, I, Bella Swan USED to chase the American Dream of Rodeo, more specifically I used to Barrel Race. Hard to believe seeing me now, James my now ex-husband took all of that away, I honestly did not see it coming I was blinded by what I thought was love at the time. He acted like my running Barrels was the thing that he loved most about me, but when it came down to it, he started to resent it. I guess I can't blame him, he wanted the Susie Homemaker wife or if you rather "barefoot and pregnant" fuck I was hardly that, I thrived off of rodeo life, it was home to me; but then I came by it honest since I am a 3rd generation cowgirl. My mom, Renee, had the biggest influence on me, she liked to joke that I was on the back of a horse before I was born and technically she is right, since she rode up until she was 8 months pregnant with me. She groomed me from a young age to become the best I could be on the back of a horse and to put it bluntly I was, until I sold it all and left my dream behind for James and what I thought was love.

So here I sit closing one chapter of my life, to start a new one, one door closes and another opens.
