Picture him in all his glory

perfect. Just...


your type. Oh, but so much more than that.

The one you swoon over.

Fangirl for.

and he is yours.

(for now)

Savor every chapter

enjoy every last word.

he even calls her beautiful

I love you, bella

You're perfect, bella

Such a glorious accent

Hers and yours

romance at its finest.

But wait.

What's this?

100 pages left.

downward spirals activate

and here comes the final blow

he's not who he says he is

a liar

no true love

shattering the childish grins

only finding adult scowls


who could do this?

don't touch her.

no room for bella anymore.

Hurl it away


but leave no marks

there's nothing you can do

to the final printed pages

he's there

it's happening

and all you can do is watch

witness the undoing of what you believed

what you hoped

would be eternal



ugh. i guess all good things must come to an end.

And there's always the mysteriously hot neighbour.

he'll do.


Hello! This is based on a book boyfriend I had. In a word, he WAS perfect...but not anymore. Interested? The book is called "The Other Bridget" by Rachael Johns. Enjoy 💖
