Play a game, you said. A little game, nothing more. Asking me to trust you, and with all of my heart I wanted to, yet there was this uneasy feeling, that never left me completely when I was around you. A feeling I did not understand, as you have never acted with anything but kindness, and a gentle hand, still – it was there, waiting for me to listen. Instead, I followed you, desperate for a friend, more kind words, another encouraging gesture. Caught in your web, I surrendered my intuition. And paid a horrific price.
