Summary: "I lied to Laura today."
A/N: Beta by the always fantastic wendymr.
I lied to Laura today. Told her, “I waited for the pain to start... and it didn’t.” That was true enough. I saw a grieving family, and all I
felt was mild sympathy.
The lie was letting Laura believe that my pain is gone forever. It can’t be. When half your heart is ripped out, you never fully heal. Starting
another chapter means you’re ready to write new things. It doesn’t erase what came before. I don’t want Laura to tiptoe around me. I want her to help me write something new. So I lied.
Thanks for listening, bonny lass.
