Rumination is an experimental work I did for my Interactive Narratives class. The story plays out like a choose your own adventure book, but no matter what you choose, it all leads to the same ending.

The story is not meant to say that we have no choices in life, but that there is no point in ruminating about a past that can't be changed. I use to waste away my days dreaming about what I could have done to save my parents' marriage, only to wake up to the realization that the past is gone, but I still have a future ahead of me.

At the Garden of Forking Paths I made a choice. No regrets. I look ahead.

I have a friends who her parents get divorced... She allways say that she was happy when they gat divorced, because they never return to fight each other. She say too, that she never miss her mother or her father, because they live in the same city and the same neighbourhood.
But, i undestand that her is special, another boy of my school have his parents divorced and his story is more similar than this. Get the family divorced is hard, i suppose... I have the luck that my parents never get divorced (or this is that they say...)

That's the point, you can't without the regret and the grief of leaving the other parent.
