“Road to Oblivion”
by Rui Freitas
The whole idea of “On the Road” can be a very abstract, subjective and ambiguous concept without an ultimate definition, so, based on this premise, of one finding several definitions to it, I’ll take the liberty of telling you a petite tale about a different kind of “on the road”, journey, trip, path, etc., hoping you haven’t thought of it yet.

No, her special had a different meaning that day, it carried along huge implications, it was a “special” special.
So, how does a girl – Alice or is it Anna, Amy perhaps?- having just woken up one day; an absolutely uncharacteristic day, a day like every other day stuck in our boring routines; suddenly realizes that the day yet to begin is going to be a “special” special day?
Well, allow me to bring some light to your clouded thoughts and speculations and explain to you how this special girl’s “special” special day was going to change her life in a very special way.
It has a quite simple explanation I might say, because that’s the “special” special day when everything to her began to look grey, because that’s the “special” special day her memory got away…
