#22 Jeremy and John

Inside his head, planets were colliding.

Behind his eyelids, epic tales of love and loss were played out.

Epic battles were fought; new worlds were discovered and conquered.


On the outside, it was his strong, confident, arrogant brother that everyone loved.

John had become a lawyer, and then moved into politics. He was a leader of men and a visionary.


Jeremy was quiet.


The failure of the family.

But he had done what John had done.

He did it one morning about three years previously.

He had found it unfulfilling.

That afternoon he visited Mars, which was infinitely preferable.
