    You can’t compensate the mess this whole thing has made. Throw money, throw a fit, or throw me in jail, it doesn’t matter. I’m doing this alone now.

    The teacup skittered off the counter and crashed to the floor.

  • cat commented on the post, defined 5 years, 9 months ago

    What precisely about that time defined who I am today? It wasn’t the near death experiences or the “adventures”.

    As much as I don’t want to admit it. I think it was learning to love.

    Learning to love him.

  • cat commented on the post, confide 5 years, 9 months ago

    How was she supposed to do this? How could she confide in the one person who could destroy her for doing so?

  • cat commented on the post, starlit 5 years, 9 months ago

    Starlit nights. Starlight evenings. Starlit vistas.

    He would never have them again, not like they were now. Shoved into a different time, the skies were dimmer, the stars weren’t even the same.

    The two women arrived at the cinema and got out of the car, their stunning outfits dazzling every man within a 10 foot radius.

    Girls night.

    She ran her hand through his perfect hair.
    “I spent time on that this morning just for you, you know.”
    She smiled and tucked some longish hair behind his ears.
    “Yeah, but sometimes I don’t mind the unkempt look.”
    He grinned.
