12. Hogwash and gibberish

/
That answer may have pleased Viviana, but now her Shadow part breaks into the open, enraged at the facile new agey answers that the Spirit gives. Viviana is now fully confronted with an aspect of herself that she has denied. Viviana, the 'good girl', though more than a little whiney, meets Shadow, 'pure unadulterated rage', and then...
