but all of it changed when Leaflet found Freedom and Joy. she knew Freedom but they never got the chance to interact. until one day when they were thrust together. at first, Leaflet didn't know what to do or how to approach Freedom. but eventually, they became friends. through Freedom, Leaflet saw how her life looked like compared to others. and for the first time, Leaflet saw the chains that are bound to her.
"others didn't have these chains, why do i have them?" Leaflet wondered. she used to think they were a part of her, that everyone had those. but she was wrong. and the worst of it all is that her chains were not tied to her feet nor her hands. they were bound to her heart. Freedom eventually introduced Joy to Leaflet and Leaflet loved her. Joy helped her fly. she helped her see the beauty of life. Leaflet though that what she had before- the life she had before- was happy. but what she had before was just the shadow of happiness. there, lies ahead is real happiness. and she wants to get it.
so she packed her stuff and went to meet Freedom. but before she could step out, her chains dragged her inside. and at the end of the chain was Guilt. Guilt stopped her from seeking out Freedom and Joy.
"You cannot go with them, yet." Guilt growled.
"Why not?" Leaflet asked. "I want Freedom and Joy. i like them and i want them."
"All your life, you've learned to say no to what you want. why must you say yes and get it now?" Guilt asked. "your don't know Freedom and Joy yet. would you run off with them before your sisters meet them?"
and with those words, Leaflet succumbed to Guilt.
she tried to fight him, sometimes she would sneak out to see Freedom and Joy. but one day, Guilt brought a friend that disabled Leaflet to see Freedom and Guilt. he brought Exhaustion. he sucked the life out of Leaflet. whenever Leaflet sees Freedom, and when the do spend time, Guilt would come rushing onto her followed by Exhaustion.
it wont be long before she goes...
