Red String of Fate by nile-can-too Red String of Fate by nile-can-too

The red string of fate, also referred to as the red thread of destiny, red thread of fate, and other variants, is an East Asian belief originating from Chinese legend and is also used in Japanese legend. According to this myth, the gods tie an invisible red string around the ankles of those that are destined to be soul mates and will one day marry each other. Often, in Japanese culture, it is thought to be tied around the little finger.

Inspired by a drawing I saw on Tumblr.
The lower hand is mine and the upper is my sister's. Thanks to mom for pushing the shutter button for me.

I HAVE HORRID NEWS.
I cannot believe how stupid I was, I simply cannot. Words cannot describe my sorrow. I was at the beach taking photos for today when suddenly, whoop, a wave knocked over my tripod, taking my beautiful camera with it. I retrieved them but my camera is fried. That thing was my child, my boyfriend, my sibling, it was my best friend. AND I KILLED IT. I was so stupid and ignorant and careless, and it was totally unlike me to do something so utterly dumb, and now I'm paying the price. I won't lie and say that I didn't cry; I did. Multiple times. At first it was shock, then panic, then realization, then crying, then panicking more, and now it's just replaying in my head over and over and over again. I was so stupid. SO. STUPID. It's in rice right now but I know that wont do anything because the salt water and sand infiltrated every nook and cranny in my wonderful camera. I miss it so much. I had to take this photo with a camcorder, which will be my device for some time until I can work up the money to get a new camera. It was a Canon Rebel Xsi, and it was my baby. I'm so sad. Sorry. The grain the unedited version of this was unbelievable. I guess I learned my lesson and this will just be another obstacle. Maybe better things will come.

((Hi, I was wondering if it is alright to use this as a cover for my book in Wattpad? It is a very nice painting/picture (especially the symbolism behind it). But if you don'g want to then that's fine. Thank you for your time.))
