Katherine’s Story: He was My Friend

Katherine’s Story: He was My Friend

Dear J,

It’s been one year since then, and not a day passes that I don’t remember what you did. It took too long for me to fully realize that it wasn’t my fault, and sometimes I still blame myself. I tried to pretend everything was alright when everything was falling apart. I don’t hate you. I wish I did. I feel like a shell of myself. You took away too much of me, but I endured the worst of it. There’s nothing you can do to make me scared ever again. I lived, I’m here, and one day you’ll get the Hell you deserve.

Katherine
