She should have known, as a matter of fact, she has prepared herself for it but when the time came, she was not ready. she was never ready.
He wasn’t hers to begin with, they were playing a dangerous game. They both knew the consequences and risks and yet they still played along until one or the other left broken.
She has been very calculative and careful to everyone but he was the exception. Was it because she thought that her prayers have been finally answered? Was it because she craved the attention he gave her? or was it because finally someone didn’t flee when she finally took off her veil that has been a part of her? For a moment, she felt safe and needed, she felt of worthy of love. Being with him, she was her own person her own self.
But that fantasy burned out faster than it did burning brightly. Now all that is left are her own pieces that he broke. The same pieces that she has been saving up for the one who would just accept and love her without inhibitions. The same pieces that she is putting back together but it will never be the same.
