I drove all through the night, the whole time trying not to fall asleep. The last thing I needed was to be on the news. It would be easier for him to find me.

"Bastard." I said aloud, gripping my steering wheel.

He kept coming into my life, again and again. How? Why? I mean... I know he says he loves me but he's a psycho! He needs to move on. I've had enough! What's sad though is that the cops always toss it aside.

"File a restraining order." They say, but I already have five.

One under each name of the first five places I was in. I thought that could stop him, but I was wrong. I took up self-defense lessons, but no. He got two black eyes and a broken nose but kept on coming. Once, I even took up shooting classes. He got two bullets in his upper leg but still kept coming! There was nothing I could do. Nothing anyone could do, to stop him. It drove me insane. He drove me insane!

"Who will I be this time?" I asked the empty seat beside me, hoping for an answer.

The problem with having lived in so many places is the name changing... Let's see, my real name is Ann Green, but I've also been LeAnn Johnson, Terra May, Polly Jones, Lairen Taylor, Mary Hall, Kimberly Kast, Diane Summers, Regina Rodd, and Katherine Allins. Hmmm... how about Jacey Pippins? Yea, good enough I guess. I sighed as I pulled into a motel.

"If you can find me anywhere, why run? I need to sleep." I laughed as I walked in.
