Chapter 1

We were walking on the trail, I clung to his arm, sobbing. Every step I took hurt more than the last. I knew it. A chapter in my story was ending and a new one was beginning and I was terrified to flip the page. I cried myself to sleep that night and every night that followed for the next 3 months. I replayed that afternoon over and over in my mind. Like a sadist, making myself relieve the pain. We walked back from school, he refused to hold my hand. We walked down the trail in utter silence. Before we went off the path to our usual spot he grabbed my hand and pulled me towards him. He said “This is the last time.” He had said it many times before, but this time, something had changed. I tried to ignore the feeling in my gut. I turned around and kept walking towards the woods to a spot so familiar I could never get lost. He followed silently. Once we arrived I turned back and looked at him. I stared at his face trying to memorize everything about it. Those beautiful glden eyes that sparkled in the light and became slightly slanted when he laughed, giving off a slight asian appearance, the thin pink lips I had become used to, the thin nose. The strong jawline, the beautiful brown, wavy hair.  His tall physique I felt like I had to climb in order to reach his lips. He had been my everything. I was dying inside. We stood there, staring at each other. The silence was so loud, it was deafening. Tears began to fill my eyes, before they fell onto my cheeks, he kissed me. And as the tears ran down my face we made love. When the act was over my eyes went from raining to flooding. We left as I sobbed. We were walking on the trail, I clung to his arm, sobbing. Every step I took hurt more than the last. We walked towards a building were we used to go together everyday after school. Where our love first began 3 years prior. But this time it was different, he wouldn’t touch me, as we got closer he made me drop him off a block away. He refused to let me in with him, he even refused to give me a kiss goodbye. It was finally done. I didn’t know it yet, but he was doing me a favor. Now finally after years of a toxic and abusive relationship, it was done and I could go on. The best chapter in my life was about to begin.
