Scared

“I have a confession to make.”

His loving eyes looked different, and she felt a knot in the stomach.

“No. It’s not what you think. I’m not going away anywhere. The monster you killed that fateful night was a dummy, and I helped you escape the law. But the monster who harassed you before that was me.”

He paused, and she did not know if she was more scared now or then.

“I saw the intensity of your hatred that night, and decided to make it up to you with love. I hope …”

She had disappeared into the night.
