  1. Disappeared: Chapters 2, 3

    It was June, and I knew something was definitely wrong with Elena. She would never spend evenings with me ever. In fact, she hardly wanted to be with me at all! What had I done to her? It hurt me very much. All she wanted to do was practice and be alone all the time. This may have been symptoms of depression, so I thought.

    I want to thank all of you who bothered to take the test or join the political debate in the http://www.talkclassical.com/12727-political-poll.html thread.
    I found it very interesting, although the discussion veered off into some other territory at one point.
