Forget Me Not

I fell in love with a boy a long time ago. 

I was only a small girl.  Scared and frightened, I was taken from my home and held against my will.  His father hurt me, but he protected me and kept me safe as best he could. 

Until I left him. 

I ran the first chance I got and even though I knew he wasn’t behind me, I didn’t stop. The branches lashed out at me, punishing me for leaving him in the hands of a monster. 

I’ve never felt such guilt in my life.

Although I survived, the boy was never found.  I prayed for him to be safe.  I dreamed he’d be alright and come back to me.  Even as a young girl I knew I loved him, but I betrayed him

Twenty years later, all my wishes came true. 

But the boy came back a man.  With a grip strong enough to keep me close and a look in his eyes that warned me to never dare leave him again.   I was his to keep after all. 

Twenty years after leaving one hell, I entered another.  Our tale was only just getting started. 

It’s dark and twisted.

But that doesn’t make it any less of what it is. 

A love story.  Our love story.
