The air was cool against my bare arms, clouds started to cover the moonlight that illuminated the camp, it was a beautiful area, nature had taken over but that is what made it that much more alluring.Ivy vines growing up the bark, a meadow of wildflowers, dandelion seeds floating through the air. Tree stubs and fallen branches made natural seats all around. A stream flowing around the edge with its own little pebble beach completed the scene. It was so tranquil. I was lost in the beauty of nature when a cold breeze made me shiver, I turned towards my tent to grab a blanket when a shadow immersed me in darkness. Goosebumps raised all over, the hair on my arms and the back of my neck rose in anticipation. I knew I wasn’t safe but my body was unable to run away, turning around I managed a few steps backward.
When I first met you the world was a dark place for me and I was a dark person in that world. I was drunk and lonely and emotionally damaged from a trauma that I was still to weak to talk about. I used your friend for comfort but it was to much and I was kicked to the curb, drunk and sad. That same night on June 22nd 2015 you walked me home. Told me I was beautiful as I cried and wiped away my tears under a lamp in the middle of the street. You allowed me to run free in a field and caught me when I fell. I knew then that I... I wanted every part of you. For months we meet in secret in fear of your friend, for months we talked like we had known each other for eternity, for months my feelings grew for you like none other before. You were perfect, too good to be true. Little did I know what our future held for us.
I used to be a girl who lived for fun. Who did as I wanted, when I wanted.
