It happened ten years ago, and it stands out, and ever will stand out, in my memory like some dark, awful barrier dividing the happy, gleeful years of girlhood, with their foolish, petulant sorrows and eager, innocent joys, and the bright, lovely life which has been mine since. In looking back, that time seems to me shadowed by a dark and terrible brooding cloud, bearing in it's lurid gloom what, but for love and patience the tenderest and most untiring, might have been the bolt of death, or, worse a thousand times, of madness.
The Cedar Closet by Patrick Lafcadio Hearn. A short story in the Great Irish Tales of Horror pg 246. These have got to be the longest sentences I've used for Teaser Tuesday.
