I run across the street not even looking where I’m going, the tears blurring my face so I can’t see. How could he do this to me? All the years that we’ve been together and he can throw it all away. And what for? A stupid blonde tart in a short skirt. As I run through the streets blindly I can’t stop the betrayal from playing in my head over and over again.
Going back to Greg’s house, after going home for the night because I left my glasses there. Not bothering to call. Finding him in the arms of another woman. Their bodies glistening with sweat. The clothes strewn across the room. The sob of hurt that escapes my throat and his shocked face as he looks up and sees me standing there.
“Ally I can explain.”
His voice echoes in my head and makes the tears fall even faster. I try to force the images out of my head but no matter what I do they keep coming back. I run faster trying to escape the memory but no matter how far I run it keeps following me.
“How could you.” My scream seems to break the spell and he jumps off of her grabbing his clothes and starts to run over to me. “Don’t come near me.”
“Ally it’s not what it looks like.” He looks over to her and then back at me. “I love her Ally.”
“I thought you loved me.” As the words escape me the tears start to fall clouding my vision. “I thought you loved me.”
“I’m sorry I didn’t want you to find out like this. I was going to tell you.” He walks over to me and tries to put his arms around me. I push him back ignoring the look of hurt that crosses his face.
“I hate you, I hate you.” As I scream this I turn around to run from the room, not able to see them together for another second. I’m crying that much that I can’t see where I’m going and I run into the door hitting my head. This fresh pain makes me feel even worse and starts the tears even harder.
As I run out the door I hear him call out to me. “Ally." But I ignore him and keep running, "Stop!"out of his house, out of this relationship and out of his life.
I snap back to the present when I hear a car horn blaring loudly. I look around blearily and realise with a shock that I’ve run into a busy intersection without noticing. The world seems to slow down, making me feel like it takes an hour for the bright red commodore that’s skidding towards me to hit, but when it does my entire body erupts in pain.
I roll over the hood of the car and go flying in the air landing behind the car, my head slamming into the road. I can’t feel my body and everything starts to go black.
All around me I can hear people screaming and yelling but I can’t make any sense of it, my hearing going with my vision. As I sink into the blackness Greg’s face once again flashes into my head and I hear him say “Ally I love her.” Over and over again and then nothing.
