A crackle of the leaves, the creek of a door, a whisper in the shadows… her own shadow. It’s not that she’s watched too many scary movies… she has, but that’s beside the point. It’s much more than that.
Everywhere she turns, there he is one step ahead of her.
How can someone go from being your best friend to your worst enemy? Don’t ask her. She’s obviously the worst judge of character.
She used to think happily ever after’s were real. Now she’s not so sure.
When she watches a chick flick, any chick flick, she sits there in disgust. Girl meets boy, boy flirts with girl, girl and boy fight over something stupid, they kiss and make up, they live ‘happily ever after’. Typical. But this doesn’t happen in real life. Especially not for her.
Sleeping with the enemy? That’s more her style. Had she known she was about to sleep with the enemy, she would have steered clear and saved herself a lot of pain and tears. However, she can’t regret that decision as she would rather take the pain and the tears and multiply it by infinity than lose her son.
It’s true that she’s afraid of her own shadow. Afraid that what she thinks is her own shadow, is actually his.
Every time she turns her back, he strikes. So many secrets, so many lies, so much manipulation. And not enough space in either one of their brains to keep track of it all.
She’s done everything she can to keep him out of her life, but somehow (and illegally for that matter) he keeps coming back.
What can she do to move on with her life? Will she have to take it to a new extreme?
