~Collision of work papers and coffee~
"Oh gosh, I'm so sorry. I-I didn't see you there." Said the young lady.
"Oh no its fine, I just finished my work meeting, so my next meeting is the couch now!" He'd chuckle.

" I'm Cara." She says as she politely shakes his hand.
"I'm David." He asserts.
" I know public is the worst place to meet someone, but I like you, Cara. I want to see you again."
"You're loving me already now?" She stares into his eyes, exchanging the same energy.
"Woah, jumping to things already. I think I am starting to liking you, Cara."
" Counselor you may proceed."
"David Watts, please tell the court the situation with the defendant, Cara Demaine."
"We bumped in at a local coffee shop, I said I liked her, I asked for her number, then we met once. And that was really it! I chose not to proceed anything else further, and yeah. I clearly told her several times that I was not interested, and we should just move on."

"Did Cara Demaine continue to contact you after?"
"Every possible way you could contact someone. Texts, calls, showing up to my house, appearing on my mother's front door. ANY possible way to contact someone. I mean she's crazy. I moved twice and changed my phone number and all my other contact details, and she found me every single time."

"You can't leave a girl like me who will never stop loving you like no one has before."- Cara asserts while she glares at David.
"Miss. Demaine, are you taking this seriously? We can conclude this meeting if you insist."- The judge asserts vigorously.
"Oohh no, I just, he's just getting the whole story wrong, he is being soo dramatic! I didn't show up to his mother's house." - She looks and turns to her lawyer for her confirmation.
~𝑯𝒆 𝒉𝒖𝒔𝒉𝒆𝒔 𝒉𝒆𝒓~
"Oop okay sorry, okay."
"Miss Cara Demaine, please provide us information of the situation in your perspective."
"Right!" - She clears her throat.
" Everything he said, we met at a coffee shop, we went out, and he.... I don't wanna say that he wasn't interested, but I mean, he didn't give me a chance to prove how much I did want this. So, I showed up to his house." - She'd say as she gazes at David with a crazy desire of love.

"That's not how a relationship works Cara."
"You wouldn't understand the way some people love, Judge."- Cara asserts.
"Stalking is not love, Cara. You could receive a restraining order violation offence from what you've done here to Mr. Watts."
"Mr. Watts, do you have any evidence where you didn't want to be in contact at all?"
"I do. Here are text messages of her replying to the fact I never wanted to see her again. She clearly didn't understand no and started sending me death threats to myself and my partner."
Cara: IS IT BECAUSE YOU DONT LOVE ME?? Is it because I'm too skinny? Is it the way I laugh with you? Is it me? WHAT IS IT DAVID. TELL ME. FUCKING TELL ME.
David: That's not the problem Cara. You're not understanding my point.
Cara: NO! YOU DONT UNDERSTAND MY POINT. You know I've already bought my wedding dress; it's coming in a few days...!! What am I going to tell my family about us now? What am I going to tell my best friend who was planning our baby shower?? You really hurt me David, I'm never going to leave you alone to until you appreciate me. If I see your new girlfriend, I'm going to kill her.
~𝑫𝒂𝒗𝒊𝒅 𝒍𝒆𝒂𝒗𝒆𝒔 𝒐𝒏 𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒅~
Cara: Fine, if you don't want to talk to me over the phone, we can talk in real life. I'll see you soon my love xoxo!
"She has always countlessly bribed me multiple times and guilt tripped me into seeing her. Apparently, she is pregnant with our kid, and also saying how I'm not helping enough with OUR dog?? I don't even have a dog!!"
"Well, it's true judge, I am pregnant with his baby. And doesn't help with the dog judge, he doesn't!"
"JUDGE I HAVE NEVER FUCKED THIS WOMAN BEFORE!"
"Cara Demaine, you are being sentenced to 40 months of Jail time for the act of Stalking and attempted murder!" - The judge makes a ruling.

" David, this won't be the last time you see me. I'm not going to waste our love; it felt a lot like love when I first bumped into you and I'm not throwing that away. That paper you touched when I dropped it, I took that home with me, I still cherish that paper as it was our first memory we had. I wish you would see the potential I see, you don't understand how happy you would be with a woman who has so much love to give. I love you David, I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU."
The police remove Cara from the premises.

"Your a psychic?"- The prisoned woman asks.
"A love psychic."- Cara asserts.
"Well, what do you see?"
"I feel like there's a man in your life that causes a lot of stress, to the point where it keeps you up at night overthinking your love for him. I completely understand that though!"
"Huh, you are a psychic."
"Mm no, I'm not. I can just read into someone's love life based off past experiences. I teach from my mistakes." Cara states.
"Never let a man control you or change the way you are. Never give males the satisfaction they want. My ex was just like that, men these days." - Cara falsely lies.
"I used to spy on him through his window though so I can't talk. "- Cara chuckles.
"And I attempted to murder his new girlfriend.... I think I just really wanted to be loved back then but I didn't know how to. I mean I'm basically still like a child in many ways. It's not his fault I've never been loved before, I do get that it was my fault for putting this all on him. I always fuck up everything, but I guess that's where they all go in the end, fuckup land, aka prison!"
"Wow, you must really have some trust issues, I'm sorry. Do you miss your ex?"
"Ex isn't the right word firstly, we still are pretty much together. I visit him now and then though, so we always reconcile."
"Ohh! Does he come visit you a lot?!"- The woman questioned.
"No. I steal the cop car at 4:25pm before officer Judy comes outside. Then I just drive off to his house. That feeling of freedom when it comes to love just tickles my shattered broken heart."
Cara breaks the patched window sitting on the first floor next to the driveway. As she steps into the house of her so-called lover, she glances around the living room. Knowing how different the room decor would've looked if she was dating him. She walks around the house in her dirty, unwashed prison clothes and decides to go upstairs to his room. As she steps on each stair, that eerie, creaky noise of a crazy lover welcoming herself upstairs to what was going to be an unknown suprise waiting. As she walks into his room, she looks around and catches a strange object on his bedside table, and she appears to find a wedding ring box. The look of sadness and rejection is visible on Cara's face, she doesn't seem to know how to react though. That feeling of being betrayed, like she entered into a room where there was no one else to give love to. Without hesitation, she grabs the box and opens it. She holds the ring with pure frustration.
"I knew he loved me; I knew he was going to come back for me one day." - She'd smile.
