And for that one moment, on top of Rocca Maggiore, I felt like the Queen of the World.
Adrenaline and Euphoria filled my bones.
I did not have to take orders from anyone and the world was mine to explore and discover.
Soon after there is a, “Scuzie! Scuzie!,” in the distance. A slight reminder that I indeed had to pay to come inside this castle and it was not mine to monkey around in. The employees yelled for me to get down, but smiled politely at me when I left. It was almost as if they weren’t mad at me for being up there, just concerned for my safety and the condition of the flag pole.
It was then, that it finally sunk in, Assisi stole a part of my heart that I could never take back.
