Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

A Not-So-Grim Grimm

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Kenzie was born into a ridiculously happy family. She had an older brother and two parents who loved both of their children desperately. They spent time ample time together as a family, and always honoured pre-bedtime-story time. Her mother obsessively shared the stories passed down through their family, insisting such things were gospel truth— that both of her children would become the keepers of the stories. And at five years old, it was easy to believe her, particularly as these things were reiterated night after night.

Until she was ten. Then the stories nearly died.

At ten years old, Kenzie and her brother lost both of their parents in a car accident. Both of the children had been in the back seat of the car and had managed to live through the ordeal. Neither were the same.

Kenzie became distant. Quiet. Withdrawn into fact rather than anything she deemed fiction, despite her Uncle and Aunt's efforts to inspire her imagination and encourage her back to their family's traditions.

While she participated in every family event, mostly because of expectation, she became increasingly hostile about anything fanciful. Her eyes rolled, she became beligerent and sarcastic, and she got frustrated by all of the events. But she still went. If only to keep her grandmother happy.

Retreating into fact meant reading— copious reading about science rather than magic. Which is why she aced every class in middle school and high school, and she became obsessed with things that she could know. She loved puzzles. Discerning things. After high school she earned multiple scholarships to multiple universities, and eventually completed a BA in Biology, and got accepted into Med School. She's started her first rotation at the hospital.


Kenzie is disinterested in stories. It's just the way it goes.
