𝑰𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒅𝒆𝒑𝒕𝒉𝒔 𝒐𝒇 𝒉𝒆𝒓 𝒔𝒐𝒓𝒓𝒐𝒘, 𝒔𝒉𝒆 𝒔𝒕𝒐𝒐𝒅 𝒃𝒆𝒇𝒐𝒓𝒆 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒎𝒊𝒓𝒓𝒐𝒓, her reflection a haunting reminder of the pain that consumed her. Betrayal had etched its mark upon her heart, casting an evil and dark shadow over her once vibrant spirit. Emily's tear-filled eyes met her own gaze, she couldn't help but question the worth she once held. In that moment, the mirror become a cruel witness to her shattered trust, reflecting not only her external beauty but also the inner turmoil that threatened to consume her. This is the story of 𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑶𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒓 𝑾𝒐𝒎𝒂𝒏. She will not let him win. She won't let him walk away unscathed. She will have her vengeance, and it will be sweet.

"Xavier, can you please calm down and tell me what wrong."- Emily anxiously says.

"No, Emily. I can't, I have to go I'm sorry."

~𝑬𝒎𝒊𝒍𝒚 𝒈𝒓𝒂𝒃𝒔 𝒉𝒊𝒔 𝒉𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒕𝒖𝒓𝒏𝒔 𝒉𝒊𝒎 𝒂𝒓𝒐𝒖𝒏𝒅, 𝒆𝒚𝒆 𝒕𝒐 𝒆𝒚𝒆~

"WHAT IS WRONG XAVIER."- She'd yell.

~𝑯𝒆 𝒕𝒉𝒓𝒐𝒘𝒔 𝒉𝒊𝒔 𝒉𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒃𝒂𝒄𝒌 𝒕𝒐 𝒑𝒍𝒂𝒄𝒆𝒎𝒆𝒏𝒕~

"There's someone else."

~𝑰𝒕 𝒘𝒂𝒔 𝒍𝒊𝒌𝒆 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒄𝒐𝒖𝒍𝒅 𝒉𝒆𝒂𝒓 𝒂 𝒑𝒊𝒏 𝒅𝒓𝒐𝒑~

"What do you mean... there is someone else?"- She'd question.

"Don't you understand, you're the other woman."

"But I'm your girlfriend, SHE'S THE OTHER WOMAN."

"SHE'S PREGNANT. I'm the dad. Your the other woman."

~𝑬𝒎𝒊𝒍𝒚'𝒔 𝒘𝒉𝒐𝒍𝒆-𝒃𝒐𝒅𝒚 𝒇𝒓𝒆𝒆𝒛𝒆𝒔, 𝒔𝒉𝒆 𝒈𝒂𝒛𝒆𝒔 𝒊𝒏𝒕𝒐 𝒉𝒊𝒔 𝒆𝒚𝒆𝒔 𝒔𝒑𝒆𝒆𝒄𝒉𝒍𝒆𝒔𝒔~

"I'm sorry. I have to go, I'm sorry Emily." - He shrugs.

As she watches him leave she screams, "And look what you do. RUNNING AWAY FROM YOUR OWN MISTAKES."

~She picks up the object beside her and she hesitantly throws it to her right, shattering a mirror. She turns to the broken reflection of herself. 𝑰𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒅𝒆𝒑𝒕𝒉𝒔 𝒐𝒇 𝒉𝒆𝒓 𝒔𝒐𝒓𝒓𝒐𝒘, 𝒔𝒉𝒆 𝒔𝒕𝒐𝒐𝒅 𝒃𝒆𝒇𝒐𝒓𝒆 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒎𝒊𝒓𝒓𝒐𝒓~

As Emily embarks on a quest for closure, she found herself standing at the doorstep of her ex-boyfriend's house. The weight of her emotions hung heavy in the air, as she mustered the courage to face the remnants of a love that had crumbled so quick. With each step closer, her heart races, unsure of what awaited her on the other side of that door. As she reaches her arm out to knock on the door, the voice of Xavier travelling closer and closer to 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒐𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒓 𝒘𝒐𝒎𝒂𝒏.

"Your Home early, Kat-"- He opens the door and eats his word on Katy.

"Loving you was such a waste."- She lowers her arm.

~𝑿𝒂𝒗𝒊𝒆𝒓 𝒊𝒔 𝒒𝒖𝒊𝒆𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒅𝒐𝒘𝒏 𝒇𝒓𝒐𝒎 𝒉𝒊𝒔 𝒔𝒄𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒎𝒔 𝒐𝒇 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒆𝒙𝒄𝒓𝒖𝒄𝒊𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒑𝒂𝒊𝒏, 𝒈𝒓𝒐𝒂𝒏𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒘𝒉𝒊𝒍𝒆 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒂𝒈𝒐𝒏𝒊𝒛𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒑𝒂𝒊𝒏 𝒕𝒂𝒌𝒆𝒔 𝒐𝒗𝒆𝒓 𝒉𝒊𝒎~

"YOUR ONLY THOUGH IS KATY'S HAPPINESS."

"I'm so stupid for caring about someone who didn't even love me. You've made me lose a lot of hope, I don't even know what love is anymore. I guess I was still living in my dream of not knowing who was real to me. After all I guess that you should still be grateful for people who weren't even meant to be a part of your life." - She swings her arm up and rapidly slices down, chopping his head off.

"Katy!? I've heard so much about you."

~𝑲𝒂𝒕𝒚'𝒔 𝒃𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒕𝒉 𝒊𝒏𝒕𝒆𝒏𝒔𝒊𝒇𝒊𝒆𝒔, 𝒔𝒉𝒂𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒊𝒏 𝒄𝒐𝒏𝒇𝒖𝒔𝒊𝒐𝒏~

"Did you know that you were the other woman."

"Hu-" - She stumbles on her word.

"It's fine Katy. Not like you will be physically able to tell people about this...."
