Summary

"Pulls on your heartstrings, only to tear them apart." 
I never fit the mould of an abused woman. I had a great family life. Parents that loved me. A brother and sister that stuck with me through thick and thin. Amazing friends. A confidence that was envied by my peers. 
Then he came along. 
Handsome. Chivalrous. Perfect. 
Then he wasn't any of those things. 
I was strong enough to walk away. To hide. But then he'd find me. 
He'd always find me. 
It became a game of hide-and-seek. Every time I'd find a different place, but I could never stay hidden. Walls were too transparent. People were too transparent. 
I cut my hair. I dyed it. I changed my name… I tried to become invisible to everyone around me. Instead, I became the new girl. A person of interest. Someone hiding their past. 
I knew he would come for me again…just like every other time. 
The last time he attacked me, I had finally had enough. I wouldn't let him rule me anymore. I finally stood up to him. I showed him I wasn't the coward he married. 
That was the night when my life changed. 
That was the night when everything went dark.
