Sylvia has read The House at the End of the World, and like the character, Katie, realizes that she, too, could benefit from living a life of seclusion in an island home.
Sylvia sat in the darkness of her isolated island home, cursing herself for her carelessness. She had always prided herself on her self-sufficient lifestyle, but now she was forced to call an electrician to fix the short circuit she caused. The thought of having a stranger come to her sanctuary filled her with unease.
She had fled to this island to escape the noise and chaos of the world, but now she was starting to realize that seclusion was not always a panacea. Despite the peace and solitude she had found, she still couldn't escape the need for human interaction. She had made a mistake and now she was paying the price.
But as she sat there in the dark, Sylvia couldn't help but reflect on the reasons she had come to the island in the first place. The constant news of crime and violence had left her feeling hopeless and vulnerable. She wanted to live in a place where she was in control and could trust her surroundings. And while her recent mistake had reminded her that even her isolated paradise was not immune to problems, she still felt safer here than she ever had in the outside world.
Sylvia sighed, running her hand over the rough drywall. If only she had thought to bring the Zircon Multiscanner A200 to use before she drove her nail. She would call the electrician in the morning, but for now she would sit in the dark and remember why she had chosen this life. Despite the challenges and difficulties, she was determined to make it work. After all, she was in control here, and that was something she couldn't find anywhere else in the world.
