I don’t know what I did wrong.

I’d gone over it countless times in my head since that day. The turning point. The first time he smacked me clean across the face.

He apologized profusely and promised me it would never happen again.

“I let my emotions get the best of me. I love you so much. Please, forgive me…”

Initially, I wanted to act like it didn’t happen. After all, he promised me it wouldn’t happen again. It was a blip. A lapse in judgment. Things were heated. Everyone makes mistakes, etc. I was prepared to forgive and forget.

But then I stepped into the harsh white lighting of the master bathroom, and there it was. The insulation pink, puffy blotch in the shape of his hand. It throbbed like a neon light above a New York City pub.

What made things change in that instant? Was it something I said or did? Did I challenge him to the brink? Was I so completely unbearable that he could no longer control himself?

What launched us into this alternative universe where we weren’t soulmates?

 

From that moment on, I began to die.
