In the warehouse, I stared down the bastard. He’s the one who broke my heart. The three words he said before dumping me into the dark hole were “I love you.” He’s a liar. I wouldn’t be surprised if he was on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list. He’s a filthy, lying man.
He had done his share by constantly calling me a bitch and by driving me to hell. Then he said he was done with me. One year later, I had been driven far past insanity.
“So we meet again,” he speaks slowly in a low voice.
“I believe so,” I say back.
“I seek revenge on you,” he says to me.
“You have no idea what I want to do to you,” I said.
“Neither do you,” he says back.
“Well played,” I mutter.
“Thanks,” he says, picking up a bottle of wine.
“You’re not going to rape me that easily,” I say, stepping back.
“Oh yeah I am,” he says, “I’m going to scar you for life.”
“Like you haven’t already,” I say.
He just put his hands on his hips and gave me a stern look.
I pick up an AA-12 and aim it at him.
“I’m on the criminal lists, so by killing me, you’re just saving me,” he says contently. I knew it.
“No, I’m saving myself,” I say, sweating. This bastard has to go.
“Do it, damn it !” he yells. I resist the thirty more seconds. “I’m going to be put under the death penalty, so just do it,” he says.
“I hope you go to hell,” I say. I send a bullet through his head.
He’s not quite dead yet, but he’s fading fast.
“I love you,” he says.
“I love you too,” I say mockingly.I don't mean those words anymore.
The bastard is almost dead now. The scarlet blood drips down from his head down his round face. I kiss his still lips. I can taste his blood on my tongue. It tastes like copper. He’s dead now.
I think this is how love goes.
