Not many people understand what it means to be totally, utterly, and deviously alone, where not even the gentle thud-thud-thud of your heart can wipe away the terrible pain. Thats where I am right now. Sitting here, alone for the first time in two months.
My two months with Jasper Halter. Hah. No one would ever believe that he had been the first person to find me, and to show me there was a point to life... And no one would think that I, Bridget, the quiet, shallow girl in a big school, would ever have fallen in love, or made a boy so mad that he left me here to die.
Jasper Halter was, in no uncertain terms, a jerk. He invaded my only sense of peace. Gave me a reason to hope. Trusted me for the first time in his life. And then, he left me with the wolves, all 24 of them, not to protect me as he once told me, but as a sacrafice. I had been duped.
Not duped, he wouldnt ever hurt you! a voice in my head whispers
Its to late. He HAS hurt me. In fact, he is trying to kill me!
no, he is not, Bridget! Get a grip! He had no choice, and he will come back for you!
Ha! I was stupid once, I wont fall for it agian.
You have to! they tricked himjust as well.. And he asked you to trust him first, didnt he? To know that-
OH Shut up! YOU can run! I am about to be KILLED!!
Oh Really? Lets just look at exactly what has happened over the past few months, replay it all, shall we?
This is stupid, but fine. Have it your way. I might as well relive my finest moments.
Your finest moment will be when he saves yo-
JUST SHUT UP ALLREADY!! START YOUR REPLAYS, AND LET ME THINK!!
Touche! now, lets begin.. Do you remember 2 months ago, when you were sitting under your tree, writing, when you heard the trip wire snap? And then he came stumbling in, no clue who you were?
