Elena Rogova's Appearance and Reality is a clever short story that tackles something we can all relate to: the difference between the feelings we show to the world and our hidden true feelings. It's like as we grow up, we put on a mask to suppress our feelings to look cool or appear strong or whatever. Screw that.
Sure, growing up teaches you a few things and adds wrinkles to emotions but sometimes, life is more enjoyable when you take that mask off.
